"Having admired John's work for a while by stumbling on his Instagram by chance, it was an absolute treat to get a little shoot together for my little spoilt Mini Dachshund, George. To put it delicately, George isn't the best model on his good days but John somehow managed to get him at his best with every shot. No matter the obstacle, John had a toy, treat or appropriate praise to bring out the perfect look from my stubborn little monster. He managed to capture George's cheeky personality as well as giving me amazingly cute photos which I have used on Christmas Cards and Calendars for the whole family to enjoy.
John isn't just great with those of the furry variety, he managed to put me (a crazy unsure dog Mumma) at ease, assuring me the whole time the dog's reactions were normal.
Thank you John for capturing George so perfectly and I look forward to working with you again!"

"John was really calm and patient whilst at the same time really interactive with Stella and he was able to get the best out of her. He was able to catch Stella in some of her more high energy moments, but then was also able to capture her in some truly peaceful and more natural shots.
John used a a wide range of techniques to get some more of those blink and you will miss it photos...
Cue the adorable head tilt...
We had such a great time running through the water with Stella and just didn't even worry or think about posing. The photos we received were a true reflection of the amount of fun we had on the day.
We would highly recommend John Muir Photography to anyone that truly loves their furbaby and wants some beautiful lasting memories. 😀🐾🐕"

"John, I would just like to say a massive thank you for the wonderful photos you took of my dog Mya. You were very patient and have a natural way with animals, which ensured you were able to bring the best out in her. The photos themselves really are superb and I can't wait to have them hung up on our wall. I am very happy to recommend you to anyone wanting pictures of their pets."

"I really enjoyed our session with John; he had so many fun ideas, but was also really adaptable and could really see the beauty in so many situations. The dogs immediately took to him (and not just for the treats and squeaky toy!), even my little scaredy cat dog trusted him. I was really impressed with the resulting images, which made incredible use of the morning light. John managed an amazing range and variety of shots, and really captured the personality of both dogs. The prints look awesome on my wall, and the acrylic block of the dogs silhouetted against the sunrise is absolutely a piece of art!"

HOW IT ALL BEGAN
My wife and I are fortunate enough to have had the best two fosters in the world, Logan and Leroy, find their way into our lives (not that I’m biased, by any means…ha ha). This is about the time my (slight) obsession with dogs began. Not too long after they joined our family, I dusted-off my camera and began experimenting with photographing our cheeky duo whenever an opportunity presented itself. Keen to challenge myself beyond photographing only Logan and Leroy, I began volunteering as a pet photographer for Animal Rescue Queensland and Precious Paws Animal Rescue and sharing my work on Facebook and Instagram.
I soon discovered that it was not only Ula and I who were excited about photos of Logan, Leroy and the collection of fosters that I shared on social media. This positive feedback, combined with my years of experience with volunteer photography, prompted me to raise my photography to a higher level. For over 1 year I have provided professional pet photography services to a broad range of fur clients, small and large.
Growing John Muir Photography and witnessing the joy that the moments I’ve captured has brought to my (human) clients, have been amongst the most rewarding experiences in my lifetime. I am very excited and motivated about what’s in store for 2017 and greatly look forward to meeting you and your fur babies.
