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.

Zach (@zachdriftwood on Instagram) than uploads the photos to Instagram with the #petheadz hashtag.

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)

    Good idea but it could be performed bit better. When i look at pics they are funny but size of bricks isn’t identical on camera screen to later image and that kind of makes it less believable. Have fun
