Great patience equals the best shot
When hiya bucks won a pet photoshoot with family run Mark Hewitson Photography we wondered whether our 19 year old cat would fit the brief. Thankfully our concerns were soon brushed aside when we met Mark.
The purpose-built photographic studio just off the M40 in Milton Common is bright and airy with plenty of options for posing pets. Mark has a way with animals, he is a calming influence, maybe because he knows who is in charge. He admits he has seen a fair few challenging pets over the years and is undeterred by the saying ”never work with animals or children”. A non-responsive pet doesn’t seem to faze Mark who happily lays on the floor, camera at the ready, patiently waiting for the right shot.
Our pet Ginger has given up playing, retiring instead into a relaxed old age, so showed no interest whatsoever in dangling toys to make him look at the camera. The whole photoshoot was done at his pace. And this is what we loved. There was no huffing and puffing, and Ginger was able to relax in the various sections of the studio where he needed to be. We are thrilled with the outcome and now have some fantastic photographs as a lasting memory.
