Our photographer Jackie Madara-Campbell and her "soul mutt" and best model Dawson on a drive home. Jackie's love of animals and her love of of photography started when she was a child. Today these twin passions unite in her work as a pet photographer.
Her journalistic "follow the action" photographic style comes from Jackie's roots in television news. Decades ago, she began a journalism career with a camera over her shoulder. Although she left the news business many years ago, she never put down the camera. In the intervening years, Jackie has photographed all over the world - capturing moments and scenes through her camera lens to be treasured for all time.
Jackie chose to concentrate her private photography work exclusively on pet photography for many reasons. Not the least of which is that she understand pets. Jackie understands how our pets behave. Jackie knows each pet is an individual with his or her own personality - just like us.
When you book a personal pet photography shoot with Four Dogs Photography, Jackie will spend time getting to know you and your pet before she takes a singe photograph. This is a crucial part of Jackie's artistic process. She gets to know each pet and their people parents so she can find out what makes each individual pet's personality special. That authentic knowledge helps Jackie capture your pet's individual personality in photographic art for your family to treasure - always.
"Because our pets' precious lives are so short, in the complete picture of our lives, each is with us for such a short time. I think that makes the goal of my work - capturing their personalities and their spirits in photographic art - all the more meaningful. It's one of the reasons I truly love what I do."
- Jackie Madara-Campbell
