Welcome to PET SHOTZ
. . . .
We are a unique animal photography
service, providing animal and pet lovers in southern Kentucky and northern Tennessee the opportunity to have their pets professionally
photographed in the comfort of their own homes.
That's right, we will come to YOU!
Avoid the headaches
of bringing your animals and pets to a studio in town. No fighting to get them into carriers, no fearful, yowling or barking
animals or stressed-out owners, and no gasoline required: just make an appointment with PET SHOTZ and we will come do the photo shoot at your home hassel-free!
Not only that, we will be respectful of your home, taking care to "leave it as we found it."
We will pack up all our equipment after your session is complete and help you move any furniture items moved to make
room, if needed. We'll even wear "covers" over our shoes to protect your floors and carpet from dirt!
Our setup will provide 35mm digital photography with your choice of several beautiful photographic backgrounds.
However, we will gladly take shots of your lucky pet using the entire selection of backgrounds if you'd
like, and at no extra charge!
*35mm print film photography also is available
for those who don't own computers or if you just prefer prints to digital. However, there is additional charge for
print film, dependent upon customer requirements.
Outdoor setup will be permitted under certain operating
conditions, including favorable weather conditions, access to electricity, etc. We will, however, take
photographs of your horses, mini horses, mules, livestock, etc., in their natural outdoor setting. However, inclement weather
may cause delay or postponement of the photo shoot.
Numerous pictures of your animals/pets will be
taken in various poses. You and your family members are welcome to join in the fun as space permits. Usually at least one
or two people - or more - with their pets can fit comfortably within the background boundaries.
are also pleased to offer our services to you and your family as individual and/or group photos, with or without pets.
If you have "props" you would like to incorporate into your pictures, your photographer will
work with you to accommodate them if possible.
You are encouraged to help your pet(s) "pose" but only
at the discretion of the photographer. Please remember that your photographer knows best how to get "the most bang for
your buck" so please help your photographer help you.
Space will be required
in your home to set up light stands, a background stand, and a camera tripod in order to achieve full professional results.
A small folding table also will be used for smaller animals. Also a stool, electrical cords, power strips, photographic umbrellas,
floodlights and hoods, etc., are part of the standard setup. Please keep this in mind for your own safety as well as the safety
of your family, friends, and pets. Please stay clear of these items and be aware that lights and housings can get very hot
so please do NOT touch them.
Please note that the photographer will REQUIRE a nearby electrical outlet
that has a "grounded" three-pronged plug. It MUST accept an electrical cord that has three prongs.
After the photo shoot, your photographer will upload the digital pictures into a laptop computer [provided] where
the images will be edited and cropped as required or requested, then they will be downloaded onto a CD for you to enjoy
and share with family and friends. Additionally, one 8"x10" print of your choice will be edited and/or cropped as needed to
obtain best results then immediately printed out [printer provided] on high quality photographic paper. This bonus print
is included at no extra charge.
*Note that customers who opt for our 35mm PRINT FILM
package will NOT receive the free 8" x 10" color print since the film must be professionally developed. Your photos
will be mailed to you without negatives [unless you bought all rights to the pictures from your photo shoot]. But you can
take those prints to any photo processor to get the sizes and quantities you want for nominal cost. However, if you choose
the 35mm print film package you will have the option to choose one additional background change, at no extra cost.
There is also an addtional $10 charge for the print film package due to the cost of professional film, professional
processing, and postage costs to mail your pictures to you.
