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)“
