Photographs Of Pets And Their Owners Mashed Up
Canadian wedding photographer and filmmaker Zachary Rose (23) takes the common saying about pets and their owners to the next step.
Zachary shoots an photograph of a pet using a DSLR and then takes another photo holding the DSLR in a specific way so the head of the pet seems attached to the body of the pet's owner.
I asked Zachary about the inspiration for this series:
"I have always heard animals look like their owners and I lived with some roommates with cats and it just sort or was a creative exercise that caught on. I usually meet with the owner and get a good feel for them/ their pet. Take the photo of the pet and then hold it in front of their face"
About where and how he gets his subjects:
"It was mostly local, however, now I am traveling around. I am from Toronto and have traveled a few hundred km and been able to do some, now I am in northern PA and talking with strangers to see if they are interested! I create them all the time, whenever, wherever (within reason)"
Lastly, about his gear, Zachary says:
"I just use my iPhone, my DSLR and a 50mm, and most importantly patience (for me, the pet, and their owners)"
