ModernCat’s latest post in their pet photographer Q&A series brought my attention to Two Guinea Pigs Pet Photography Studio in Sydney, Australia. Run by Julianna Koh, Two Guinea Pigs specializes in photos of more than just guinea pigs and cats. Koh — who uses a Canon 450D and 85mm f/1.2L EF lens for you photo nerds out there — says, “I don’t specialise in a particular breed or animal. I photograph pets in a non-conventional way (some say quirky) in that I prefer to capture their movements and expressions in the environment they are most comfortable with. It’s like spying on them through the camera lens and seizing every opportunity I can get to frame an image. I would say about 80% of my shoots are candid, where I let them be themselves, sit or play wherever. The other 20% are posed shots where I usually get the pets to move to nearer to where the light is.”
Great photos Julianna! And great Q&A ModernCat!
