Val Shaff Commissions
I have been making commissioned portraits of animals and their people for 25 years. Animals are great subjects because they are unselfconscious and available for engagement. My job is to capture these iconic moments and make an image equal to them.
I can work inside or outside with natural light, in an environment that we select together. Or, I can create a composition in my portable studio on a backdrop and with controlled lighting. I make remarkably detailed, dramatic images that will be iconic pieces that you will love to live with.
