Hi, I'm a photographer speciliasing in pet portraits.Well, I normally am, right now I'm on hiatus due to illness, but I'm hoping to get back to work soon. Any other photographers out there? My web site is http://pawprints.humblehouse.co.uk. Please add you site to this thread or examples of your work so we can share!
I do commercial product photography in-house for an outdoor retail company. It's not the most thrilling work, but it's steady income with paid benefits. Because I'm busy with work, I don't put near enough time and effort into my own portfolio, which currently isn't online. I might have some suitable images at home.
I've been wanting to do some charity/ volunteer work on the side, but I'll be honest: I've just been really lazy about it. I was just at a large Photoshop/ Photography conference in Vagas a couple of weeks ago, so I'm feeling a bit more energized and inspired, but I've also been sick ans swamped at the office since I got back.
Sorry to hear about your forced hiatus. It's good to take a break for work, but preferably for vacation, not illness. I can see that you have many attractive models in your gallery. It's hard not to smile when looking at animal portraits.
I could trade a bit of thrill for benefits and a steady income ;). I suppose it's one of those grass is greener type things. Mind you, I loved what I did, even though it didn't pay much, had no benefits and was erratic at best.
So how did you get into product photography then?I love hearing how people ended up where they are.
Thanks for the compliment. It's easy to take nice photos when you have such nice subjects. :)
