Photographer, Julie McGuire Photography
Photography and animals have been my lifelong passions, so when I decided to combine them, I created my dream job! For animal lovers and pet parents who want to capture precious memories, record special events, or simply document their daily life, I offer fun photo shoots in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I am also available for commercial and editorial assignments in the CT, NY and NJ areas - no animals required! Whatever your needs, I work to your specific requirements to create compelling, high quality images that capture the essence of their subject.
I am extremely lucky to have lived and traveled around the world, and it was my move to India in 2005 that piqued my interest in animal welfare and the way that 'man's best friend' was treated in different cultures. As a result, I am committed to a long term project documenting the roles of and attitudes towards dogs outside of 'pet culture'. One of these stories, "Hounds of Hope," which shows daily life at the Penang Animal Welfare Society in Malaysia, was recognized in the prestigious World Press Photo Awards 2014. My work has been published in international news media, including The New York Times, The Guardian (UK), The Sunday Times (UK), and appeared in major photo festivals and exhibitions around the world.
