ModernLiving-2910ModernLiving-2910This is a 30x40 inch face-mount-plexi framing, with a "floater" on the back

A few of the framing options are, from the simplest: an unmounted and unmatted glossy print; to canvas wraps; face-mount on plexi with a floater; rear-box-mount-on-masonite; or traditional, classic, mounted and matted prints which are then placed under glass or plexi in a wood or metal frame.  I can provide you with an abundance of exhibition and framing choices, post-shoot

--  with every session, my creative time and talent taking and editing the photos is included

--  my goal for every shoot is to take pictures you will love and treasure.  Photo sessions are fun and memorable.  The dog's "parents" are always welcome to get in some of the shots.  I love photographs that show your pet's bond with you and that capture his/her unique personality.

Reviews

        I am completely thrilled with your excellent photos of my furry children.  You

       really captured their essence -- really gorgeous pictures.  I am beyond grateful

       to you!!

These are GREAT!  Thank you so much.  We so appreciate it.  Love that we were able to capture his puppy essence  :)

He did a terrific job, was easy to work with and I will use his services again.  We highly recommend him to anyone wishing to have real life photos of themselves with their beloved companions.  Bill is an honest and approachable person and we liked his style.

PhoenixMelissa-2964PhoenixMelissa-2964 Needless to say, we all gathered around my computer last night to once again go over the shots you sent .... there were lots of gasps, awws, ooh's, etc. as each shot would open, despite the fact we've stared at your shots forty million times.

Your photographs are spectacular.

Bill loves dogs and you can see it in his work.  He took the time to get to know our dogs so they would be at ease during the shoot.  He was even able to get some great shots of our "photogenically-challenged" dog who we could never photograph well on our own.  We were very pleased with the results and working with Bill was a delight.  He was flexible, professional, very down-to-earth, and skilled.  He really worked hard to give us the photos we were after.  I recommend him highly.

Meet the photographer     The influences from childhood are powerful and stay with us the rest of our lives.  We always had dogs as I was growing up.  Every summer we went to the Jersey shore in August for two weeks.  My whole life I've loved dogs and spending time at the ocean.  About 2000, I combined my lifelong fascination with photography with my love for dogs.  My life has been enriched by all the sweet and wonderful dogs I've met.  I'd consider it an honor to photograph your pooch.  Thank you. 

In 2011 the Washington Post produced a video about my pet photography.  See that here,
