Main Pierre Mardaga

Head Photographer

Creative dog photography Sydney. I believe that dogs should be photographed where they love to hang out. So I come to your territory and get artistic portraits with the natural landscape of each dog’s home ground as backdrop for the photography. Being a dog photographer is possibly one of the most enjoyable jobs I could have. Not only do I get to know and meet so many dogs but have long chats with the dog’s parents about a whole range of things during our walk around the neighbourhood.

I have spent most of my life as a photographer of the human species at PM Photo and started dog photography in May 2014. Although I am still more than happy to keep my human side of photography ticking along quietly, it has to be said that since my change over to dog photography in Sydney that my life is now so much more fun.

"My initial concern was wether or not it was a legitimate project. I did a little research and was pleased that it confirmed that some money was being donated to a worthy animal cause.

It was as discussed on the phone, straight forward, and a memorable experience. Pierre was punctual and professional without any pretence or hidden agendas.

Pierre Mardaga was a genuine dog fan, that he captured the real aspects of my dog's territory, and as a result it would be like a time capsule of our lives. It wasn't a propped set-up, it was real, true to life and fun to be a part of this project."

"Initially I was concerned about the cost of the product at the end of the process.

The images turned out absolutely fantastic with our beautiful Ruby who normally isn't too fond of having her photo taken.

The photos are way beyond how we thought they would turn out and are a wonderful way to remember moving into our new neighbourhood with our much loved and cherished nearly ten year old German Shepherd."

"There are a lot of pet photographers around, and many want to charge a high rate for a studio shot which is not particularly exciting.

Pierre is a brilliant photographer and artist. He took photos that really captured Phil's personality and he was incredibly patient. He knows how to wait for the right moment, he get's down to the dog's level. I really enjoyed the shoot, but the photos were just beautiful.

Pierre is a real dog person. He understands the human-animal bond, he has an amazing eye and a great sense of humour. The way he portrays dogs is compassionate and also funny. He's also creative so will have ideas throughout the shoot and make suggestions. Phil doesn't run a lot, but Pierre set up some running shots and these were brilliant."

"I knew that professional photography is expensive but it was worth every cent. Our beautiful boy has now gone to heaven and those lovely photos are just so precious.

The home visit was what I particularly liked about the shoot"
