Professional-Quality pics a few steps away

Capturing great pics of animals is a challenge. In truth, it’s a lot like photographing children. You don’t get much time before they get bored, run off and find the muddiest puddle in the world. Anything can and will happen.

The trick is getting their attention. I use a collection of various squeakers hidden behind the camera. Ears go up, heads tilt, shoot.

 Dogs, horses and birds are sensitive to human moods. If you relax, they relax.

Cats too but not so much. Most cats are solitary by nature. They follow different rules. I could be on fire and my cat would probably watch while cleaning his naughty bits.

No matter how uppidty or rambunctious, Les always gets animals to look great.

For more exotic critters like reptiles, fish, amphibians and even insects, I’ll typically rely on the owner to manage the animal. Like cats, these guys pretty much do what they want. So I shoot lots of pics. Like tons. 

Thermal regulation often helps. They don’t produce body heat so if they’re cool, they’re stationary.

Posing a pair of Giant Madagascar scorpions on the decklid of a Lancia Scorpion required a portable AC unit (it was in their contract).

All scorpions are divas.

This is Lou. I found him a few years ago digging through the trash.

He’s been with me ever since.

He’s the best buddy in the world.

Just like yours.
