Bergan pet products

So I’m super well versed in how to take pictures of moving children… but then this question… how about moving ANIMALS?

You know, it’s almost the same thing. 🙂

the challenge was for Bergan pet products, a national pet product company  with an office here in Joplin. I found that I really like Bergan… a company ‘built on the bold idea that people are inspired by a clear sense of direction not a prescribed list of actions or tasks.’ A non-traditional company, wanting fresh images for their active lifestyle products…. perfect!

I quickly adapted to working with dogs- lots of dogs- and had so much fun, enjoying the challenge of scheduling models, lining up locations, and making sure we were nailing the images we were there to get (‘we’ being Dana Williams, marketing director, &  I). We had a dual focus…. the first was to capture general lifestyle images of folks and their dogs. Sort of like building a private stock photo library for the company.

The second goal, was to walk away with images that specifically showed off the leashes and carriers that Bergan is currently promoting.

As a side note- if you’re a pet owner- I saw these products in heavy use for hours during the shoot, and they’re top notch.

This is Ava, the beautiful daughter of 9art’s own Michelle. She knew the dog that Jon & Jordan from the previous shots brought- his name is ‘Booty’ and together, he & Ava made the world’s most adorable pair. Also had to snag a couple of shots of Ava hamming it up on her own…

Thanks so much to Dana for helping me run the shoot (oh, and for hiring me), and to all our models & dog owners for being awesome.
