Pawtraits is a 350-page photographic collection capturing man’s best friend at their most adorable, playful, mischievous and just downright lovable moments. Each ‘pawtrait’ is an artwork in itself – a beautiful ‘tail’ of the life and loves of a dog – captured in Zoo Studio’s signature style - pet portraits on a black background.
Since 2006, Zoo Studio has photographed over 8,000 pets (fur-kids) – giving them a strong understanding of animal behaviour, animal body language, and how to bring out the very best in their furry subjects. “It is our passion, our soul, our life – every pet deserves to be celebrated and have their story told!” says Ken Drake, who has won over 100 professional photography awards.
