Commercial Pet Brand Photography Portfolio: Gold Paw Series California Coastal
Project “California Coastal” for Gold Paw Series
Let’s go ahead and get this out of the way: Have you ever seen anything cuter than a dog wearing a raincoat?! Me neither. Super C-U-T-E!
GoldPaw wanted to feature their new rain coats in a coastal California setting. We were thinking a light rain, fog, or heavy cloud cover would be perfect. (Didn’t you know pet photographers can control the weather, too?) They also wanted some new shots of their martingale hound collars and matching leashes.
The imagery needed to feel a little cooler for the raincoats and either warm or cool for the collars and leashes. To achieve this, we shot at sunrise and focused on the raincoats before the sun hit the beach. As the sun rose over the cliffs, we switched over to collars and leashes. #strategy
HOW WESTWAY WENT WILD FOR GOLD PAW SERIES
> Model casting call
> Photography at two 2-hour photo shoots
> Dreamy, aspirational product imagery
I really enjoyed shooting at this particular location — it had all the “California coastal” vibes and that was exactly what we needed for this project. While the weather didn’t technically cooperate with us, we were able to shoot in ways that made it look like it did! We got all the cool, misty coastal vibes plus ooey-gooey golden sunlight all in one!
