“We wanted an outdoor shoot with our beagle, Booboo. After an extensive online search for local pet photographers, we decided on Ling based on her portfolio and forum recommendations.
We were not disappointed. She is extremely detailed, and we were provided with guidance right from the start – a detailed guide of “what to wear”, which as simple as it may sound, it is a very well thought through gesture, because you don’t want to wear your favourite top and blend in with the background or your pet without realising it. We sent her photos of Booboo, and a few outfits we had shortlisted, and she helped us select the most appropriate ones.
She made sure to check the style of photoshoot we wanted, and provided suggestions for locations, as well as checking if the locations were dog-friendly. We were provided with very specific instructions as to where to meet, and what to expect. Given the amount of pre-shoot preparation she put in, everything went smoothly right from the start.
We wanted a vintage-style shoot, and did our shoot at Colbar. On her own initiative, she brought props that were suitable for the style of photoshoot that we requested. Our beagle was not the most cooperative of photoshoot subjects (especially after we ran out of treats), but Ling was very patient, and kept trying. We viewed our photos with Ling yesterday, and we loved them. She captured the many aspects of our beagle’s personality perfectly. We like very much that we have portrait shots of Booboo, family shots, and individual shots with her.
Also, it is great that the eventual physical product (coffee-table album, canvas, or print etc.) is separated from the photography cost. This gives customers the flexibility to select what they actually want as a final product. We selected a 10×10 coffee-table album and 2 large prints.
We have already recommended Ling to our friends with pets, and should the opportunity arise, we would not think twice before approaching her for her services, because we are extremely pleased with every aspect of her work, from pre-shoot, shoot, after-shoot, and the final photography product, which is beautiful. Thank you, Ling.” – Jane
