Nick first began photographing pets and their people back in 2004 as an avid hobbyist. His spouse Ananda jumped on board three years later, assisting on photo shoots by helping with equipment set-up, posing and lighting. Together, their passion and combined talents have grown into a professional endeavor which has expanded beyond pet portraiture, and now includes product photography and professional headshots for corporate, commercial, theatrical and social media.
TailSnaps volunteers time and talent to companion animal rescue groups and shelters in an effort to help homeless pets find new guardians and new beginnings.
If you are with a rescue group or shelter and would like to schedule a photo shoot for your adoptables or if you have a pet-related event you’d like featured on our TailSnaps blog, please contact us through this blog.
