Inspirational Dog Portrait Photographs

Jessica Trinh is a 18-year old photographer based in South California. She made the following collection of her two dogs: a Golden Retriever named Chuppy and an Australian Shepherd named Daisy. Her target is to show how pet dogs fill very quickly their place in our hearts. Even though we enjoy having our dog pictures framed on our desk,  most portraits of dogs are alike and are therefore less interesting. This is a collection of creative and inpsirational dog photographs, each portraits makes you look at pet dogs differently. I think that the most interesting aspect about these images is the relationship between Jessica and her dogs. What do you think about it?

“There is a mission behind my photos.  I wanted to make a statement in pet photography. I wanted to call it an art.  It started ever since I set my hands on a camera; I knew I had unlocked a new dimension. One where you can expand your imagination and run for endless miles. Photography makes you look at things differently. You notice rain drops and the way the sun kisses the Earth. You breath in every moment of your life. You love to live and live to love. There is no time to waste because there is an urgency to capture each loving gesture, smile, and laugh in both humans and animals. Then every photograph becomes timeless and you smile, knowing that you hold a few split seconds in your hands.

I live in a box called a camera with the lens as my window and everyday I sit on my couch watching the world outside through a different perspective. No worries, my dogs are right beside me looking at it the same way” – Jessica Trinh.

    Your very talented, I wish we weren’t on opposite coast we could really have a great business together, animals aren’t the easiest to photograph, I always used film instead of digital but now the advancement in technology has made me purchase a digital camera as well, still love the depth firm brings to a photo especially black n

    Cut me off but just saying that you don’t know what you capture with film it has to be that perfect shot but I’ll send some of my work and please send yours, my neighbors bulldog just passed my boxer’s girlfriend before he passed yrs ago, I’m putting a collage together for him, but just happy Roc has his girlfriend back and running the fields of paradise together, good luck, you are very talented, your fellow animal photographer Marci
