Custom, quality Pet Photography utilizing three dimensional studio lighting to capture a clear, quick exposure of a dog jumping is a specialty at Ray Johnston Photography.  In order to show all of the beautiful fur colors and texture of a dog’s nose and tongue, four to eight studio lights can do this much better than trying to do this with a single flash on an iPhone.

Indigo an Australian Shepherd was in the studio last week for an updated pet head shot.  During the photo session, Indigo was tossed a ball and she leapt into the air to catch it!  Our studio staff was amazed by her quick reflexes from being a model to an athlete in a fraction of a second.
