Westminster Dog Show Renews Interest in Dog Portraits


Philadelphia, PA – The recently concluded Westminster Dog Show has focused the attention of dog lovers everywhere on their pooches. The images taken at the dog show by professional photographers and TV cameramen have renewed interest among dog owners to get more satisfying photos of their own pets.

From celebrities like Paris Hilton carrying her dog around in her purse to the family down the block with their beagle or schnauzer, America is a dog loving country. There will always be people willing to spoil man’s best friend. From doggie day spas complete with massage services to fresh baked gourmet dog treats. A pet portrait is no exception. When a simple snapshot just won’t do, dog lovers look for a portrait studio with a pet photographer to show Rover at his best.

Even those with tight purse strings or a strong do-it-yourself bent are no stranger to the trend. From point and shoot cameras to the venerable digital SLR camera (DSLR), pet lovers are pulling out their own cameras and asking Spot to smile and say cheese. Many of those do-it-yourself pet portraits will come out disappointing.

“There are many subtle tricks,” says Jeff Kontur, of "Knowing your dog’s temperament and habits is a good beginning but there are myriad other things. From camera settings to special techniques to get an animal’s attention in the right way. We teach that very sort of thing at With just a little care and knowledge, almost anyone can take a great pet portrait.”

The photography teaching web site,, is dedicated to teaching beginners and non-photographers how to take beautiful pictures. Knowing that people have different learning hurdles to overcome and all learn in different ways, they offer a variety of different learning methods: free newsletters, free daily blog posts, ebooks, video, photo critiques and more.
