We frequently need dogs, cats, and occasionally other types of pets for our commercial clients and special photography projects, such as test or stock shoots. For these cases, we're looking for pets that have that extra bit of charm and look to our Pet Model Database to find a potential model.
By joining our model network, you will be considered for upcoming model call photo shoots before our casting call goes live. You never know what we might be looking for, so please don't hesitate to register your pet...they might be exactly what we need for a shoot and become our next top model! (We are not a model agency.)
Special Project Shoot: This type of shoot is typically for Pet Charm Photography to try a new idea, location or technique. You will receive a complimentary photo shoot and 3 high-res digital images, professionally edited & chosen by the artist, to print & share as you wish for personal use (a $375 value). You will have the opportunity to purchase additional images (if produced) from the shoot at a significantly reduced cost. There is ZERO pressure to buy anything. It's just another perk for those who are interested.
Commercial Shoot: You may just see your pet in a magazine or ad! A commercial shoot usually requires a bit more training and socialization skills from your pet. The expectations are higher and the selection process will depend on what our client wants. Due to the nature of commercial shoots, you may not be able to see the resulting images. It will depend on the usage and licensing rights purchased by the client. If your pet is chosen for a commercial shoot, we will provide you with all the details ahead of time. Compensation varies.
The Experience: We strive to make our shoots easy going and fun for both you and your pet, complete with delicious goodies and lots of fun time. We usually don't ask our models to work more than a couple of hours, and we like to cater to their needs and give them plenty of breaks in between shooting. The happiness and well-being of the pets and people we work with is always more important to us than anything else.
