About David and ConnectiPets Photography
People often ask me, "Why do you photograph pets?" Animals are one of the hardest subjects to capture--many photographers avoid them like the plague. I guess the main reason is that I've been an animal lover all my life. Over the years, I've had dogs, cats, birds, guinea pigs--right now we have two dogs and two bunnies in the house. I love the challenge of winning the trust of an animal, and showing its beauty and personality.
I got started in photography when I was fifteen. I spent a summer in Greece and Italy. My brother loaned me his Nikon camera, and it never left my side (causing considerable neck pain at times). I went on to get a degree in Aesthetic Studies (with honors) at UC Santa Cruz, Later, I apprenticed with some of the top advertising photographers in San Francisco and New York, before opening my first studio in downtown Manhattan.
Over the years, I've photographed just about everything-advertising, landscapes, portraits--you name it. But as time has gone by, I've found, more and more, that I'm drawn to working with people's pets--capturing their beauty, their personalities, the relationships with their owners. And let's face it--people who love animals are some of the nicest people to work with!
My clients treasure their portraits of their pets, both by themselves, and in their family portraits.
