Sharon Montrose: Animal Photography

Sharon Montrose’s animal photography encompasses both domestic and wild creatures, often removed from their natural environment and photographed against bright, neutral backgrounds. There is something beautifully stark about the detail of the shoots, and the seemingly unfazed appearance of the subjects. Whilst delightfully characteristic shoots of dogs and cats abound, with several of her books dedicated to them, I am particularly interested in her photographs of wild or woodland animals. Each photo is consciously aware of negative space and seems to sentimentally capture the essence of the animal. Whilst her images are frequently used commercially, reasonably priced prints are available to buy for home decor, along with books of photo collections. I also recommend taking a look at her Dog Photo Booth, a personal project from outtakes of photo shoots.

I also rather love this one too:
