    Animal Portraiture

    Hi all,

    Walter Schels published a book a few years ago of his animal portraiture - for many of his photos, he used a large format camera and posed the animals as if he was posing humans.

    The book at photo-eye is here: http://www.photoeye.com/templates/Sh...?Catalog=es061

    Does anyone know of any other photographers who have used the same technique with animals (looking at the camera, with a studio background, etc)?

    Thanks.

    William Wegman made a career off of this.

    Right - I should have thought of this first. Just curious if there's anyone else.

    I took some normal pictures of my dog before she died two weeks ago. When I took her to the vet she didn't seem to know us anymore and in the end I just couldn't take pictures of her in that condition. I am sure glad I got the pictures I did. When it's over it's over and all you have is the pictures. That's what photography is about.

    I do.

    Haven't done many lately but a while back I did quite a few.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    I do large-format photos of animals, mostly insects. Might not be exactly what you're looking for, but who knows! www.angelsandinsects.com

    They keep still well enough but their union is a killer.
