Good Examples

  • High resolution photo taken with a digital camera.

  • The photo is taken at the same level as the pet.

  • When zooming in, we can see a lot of detail in the face and a good reflection in the eyes. A good way of testing whether a photo is detailed enough is to zoom in on the face. If you can see the individual hairs on the pets coat, then it is a high enough resolution for me to work from.


Good Photo Reference 

Taking the right photo is a very important part in the process of creating your pet portrait. This guide will explain what makes a good photo and what makes a bad one. Please feel free to email me your photos and I will let you know whether they are suitable.​

Photos are absolutely key - the better quality the photos, in reality, the better the pet portrait will be.
