Dogs, Cats and Those who Care for Them

Eye to Eye

Recently, I spent two days in lower Manhattan taking pictures at four veterinarian hospitals that comprise DVM Hospitals.

Hold Me

My assignment was to take pictures for their website – actually four websites, one for each of the facilities. We took headshots of the veterinarians and staff, pictures of the animals being treated and anything else of interest that came into view.

These were two very full days of terrific fun. Everyone I photographed – both two-legged and four-legged subjects – were easy to be with, enthusiastic and full of life.

The staff members of DVM Hospitals are amazing. To say they like animals is a serious understatement. They live and breathe animals. Most of them have pets themselves. I watched everything from toenail-clipping to major surgery and was impressed with the care, concern and love that was showered on the pets.

Things happened pretty fast. When I shoot in the studio, I can take the time to try different expressions, poses, etc. I didn’t have that luxury here and had to react pretty quickly. A couple of times, I asked a dog to repeat what he just did a few seconds ago – but usually got a blank stare back. The humans were much more cooperative.

Some of these images are already on their website. If you live in the city and need a vet for your pet, DVM Hospitals is the place to go!
