I’m Honored to be Featured in US Weekly for My Pet Photography

I was honored to have recently had some of my pet photographs and photography tips featured in an article in US Weekly online. I always enjoy sharing advice with anyone who is interested in capturing special moments in their clients’ or their own pets’ lives. If you’d like to read the entire article, visit this page.  Also, I’ve included two of the photographs that were described in the text of the article, but that did not appear. I hope that you enjoy the article!

This photograph is described in Tip #2 in the US Weekly article. Here is my quote that goes with it: “I photographed this Boston terrier named Cupid at about 1 p.m. in December for a magazine’s February issue. The rose petals and soft material (it’s a tablecloth) complemented Cupid and her big brown eyes perfectly. It took about 50 exposures to get just the right pose and background.”

This photograph is described in Tip #3 in the US Weekly article. Here is a description for the image: “I approached this photo session of a cat in a client’s home with the goal of inspiring the viewers to think about what the cat was thinking. These types of photos can often tell a story, and they can be completely random or set up like in a movieI used an f/2.8 aperture, which helped to keep the focus on the main characters in the image.”

To read the full article as it appears in US Weekly, which includes six additional pet photos and more tips, visit this page.


• Visit my main photography and imaging tips site, for many articles, gear reviews, interviews and much more.

• You can find a collection of articles I’ve written and a link to a podcast on which I appeared here on, which is one of my favorite photography and imaging learning sites.


I also welcome you to join any of our Meetup Groups if you would like to be invited to attend other events like photo walks, workshops, etc. in the future. Some of the events are virtual, so feel free to join even if you don’t live in the Northeast USA.

Results Have been Posted for the Pet Art Assignment

I recently had the honor of judging the Phoozl “Pet Art Show” Assignment. I’ve been fortunate to judge a number of photo contests over the years, both online and in person. It’s never easy to make final selections, but it’s always been enjoyable. You can see all the images I chose, plus my comments for first, second and third place (as well as 15 Honorable Mentions) here:
