Choosing the animal companion to share our hearts and our lives with is a very important decision. In our very busy lives, pets have evolved into our loyal friends and cherished parts of both our families and our lives to the extent that we just cannot imagine being without our devoted and beloved friends. An original hand painted pet portrait depicting our special companions is a remarkable way of ensuring that those special moments we had with our cherished pets will not fade away as distant memories. Additionally, capturing the charm and character of the other member of the family in beautiful portraits can also be a treasured gift for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, holidays or any other special occasion.
In creating detailed and exact hand drawn pet portrayals, the pet portrait artist should possess tremendous eye for detail in order to depict the attributes of the pet without demeaning him/her. Each portrait must be created with extreme care and thoughtfulness so that it conveys the spirit, personality and characteristics of your pet, creating, in that way, life-like results. Additionally, in order to create these exquisite illustrations only the finest drawing materials should be used such as colored pencils, pastels, charcoal and graphite pencils.
However, if you are seeking a colourful and exciting alternative to hand drawn pet portraits, pet photography is a great solution. Pet photography is concerned with capturing magical, bespoke images that you and your pet can be proud of. The pet photographer can capture nice close-up portraits as well as fast action shots representing the personality and character of your pet. The shoot is carefully planned and differs from the traditional photographers studio sessions as the photography takes place outdoors in picturesque sets into which the pet is positioned. However, in order to capture a set of professional images that the owner will cherish forever, the photographer should carefully pay attention when choosing their photographic equipment. The photographer should choose the best possible equipment which will enable then to capture the unique spirit and personality of the pet and will put on a smile to the pet owner for years to come.
