Most pets will join in, in having their photo taken.
love to sit and watch so you can get a really good angle. Cats love gardens, trees and high places but also love to pose on the sofa. I love cats eyes and have several lovely images in the cats gallery.
also love to be out and about and will do almost any thing for a treat. So sitting nice in the garden, park or in the country side is great. If its in the home try taking one on the sofa.
are brilliant to photograph either in the paddock, field or stable. A full head to tail shot makes a great piece of art, like the old masters (George Stubbs). But also popping their head out of the stable door works equally as well.
Many people spend hours and hours in the garden creating beautiful features and stunning areas of colour. By taking a a photo and creating a piece of photorealism art you can keep that memory for ever.
You may own your own business with an attractive frontage, a pub with garden area, Cafe or restaurant which are brilliant to create a piece of art. Inside your business can look stunning. For instance if you have a florist, bakers or home interiors shop.
What is auto art, Well if you are lucky enough to own a beautiful car, bike, off road vehicle, these can look fantastic turned into a photorealist art work. Moving standing still either way they look stunning. Old farm tractors in the countryside a motocross bike in action,your car on a track day! Endless.

- Try to get all of the subject in frame, unless its a close up i.e. head shot.
