I Created Faux Magazine Covers To Boost Black Cat Adoption

I Created Faux Magazine Covers To Boost Black Cat Adoption

I photograph adoptable animals as a volunteer at the Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority (SVACA) in Santa Clara, California. Each year, the black kittens and cats are the last ones to be adopted, and each year that bums me out because black cats are wonderful! They’ve gotten some bad publicity (I’m talking about you, silly superstitions) but nothing that can’t be overcome with some better PR—right? So, this year, my SVACA colleagues and I decided to highlight black and tuxedo cats in a fun way that would celebrate them and take the ‘spooky’…continue reading →

This Guy From Switzerland Left A Prestigious Job, Sold All His Things And Moved To Africa To Rescue Mutilated Animals

By now we have read many stories about people who decide to give up everything – their comfort, luxurious flat, a well-paid office job and other perks of having a comfortable life – in order to escape the ordinary, travel around the world and live a ‘real’ life. Let’s admit that we envy those people for their courage, we think that they are lucky because they had the right circumstances or simply had enough money to do that.

Hi everyone, My name is Zoltan. I’m a passionate portrait and travel photographer. I do a lot of dog portraits, I love photographing dogs, but when I travel I photograph the landscape and the everyday life of the people.

Recently, we traveled to Sal, Cape Verde with my fiancee Agnes. When we arrived, we were a bit shocked to see…continue reading →

I Jumped At The Opportunity To Photograph Foxes In My Studio

As a pet photographer, my normal client is a dog or cat. Never would I expect to photograph Foxes!

I Found Her In A Plastic Bag And Now She Is Making My Life Whole

About a year and a half ago I found a three months old little German Shepard in a plastic bag, barely breathing.

Swiss Foundation Raises Awareness About Animal Abuse By Posting Shocking Images Of Animals In BDSM Clothes

Swiss Foundation Raises Awareness About Animal Abuse By Posting Shocking Images Of Animals In BDSM Clothes

In social advertising any means justify the ends. Controversial, creative yet striking marketing campaigns are meant to immediately grab attention, provoke thoughts and actions. Being loud, straightforward and shocking is the key to get noticed in today’s information overload. Especially when trying to raise awareness about important and sensitive subjects, and to inspire a change which we still seem unable to make. When speaking on behalf of those, who can’t defend nor express themselves, it’s extremely important to reach people fast and effectively. So the more disturbing and provoking the ad is, the…continue reading →

Dogs Take Over The Catwalk At Fashion Week

I am thrilled to say that this is my eighth season presenting for New York Fashion Week. It has been quite a ride reaching great distances I had not imagined but am ever so grateful to have reached.

I kept getting warnings and advice that I should tread carefully, be…continue reading →

I Tried To “Save Us” From Extinction

“We’re in the process of bringing about the extinction of all of the species we most care about - including our own.” – Alex Miller I did these digital art concepts of endangered animals to show the species that are heading towards extinction. I've decided to show that we'll lose more species of animals between 2000 and 2065 than we've lost in the last 65 million years. If we don't find answers to these problems, we're going to be victims of this extinction event that we're at fault for. The challenge was to…continue reading →

Hi, my Name is Marcus Gier and I am a hobby-dog photographer from Cologne in Germany. I love to photograph dogs, especially the Spanish Galgo.

27 Heartbreaking Last Photos Of People Saying Goodbye To Their Pets

Although every dog owner knows that nothing lasts forever, we constantly try to chase away the thoughts of our pet's death. However, understanding this devastating part of life helps to prepare for it. Photographer Ross Taylor wants people going through difficult moments to know that they’re not alone.
