About this organisation

Zoo Studio understand that professional Pet Photography is about so much more than just taking pictures! They understand what it means to have furry and feathered family members, after all pets are our family too! They totally understand the strength of the emotional bond you share, they understand the things they do that make you laugh or cry, and can capture these stories in beautiful photographs that you will be proud to hang on your walls.

Zoo Studio have been incredibly supportive of QSAR this year, without them this calendar would not have happened. They have spent over 100 hours planning, organising, photographing, selecting and editing photos, and arranging the design, printing and marketing of our calendar. They have also paid for the printing costs in its entirety. This allowing every single dollar raised from the sale our calendar to go straight to saving staffies, exactly where its most needed. We are just so grateful for all they have done, they are truly a wonderful team of people!

In fact we feel there is no better professional pet portrait studio in Australia than Zoo Studio. Their Master photographer Ken Drake has won over 145 professional photography awards, all for his animal photos and this year won the prestigious title of Australia’s Pet/Animal Photographer of the Year from the leading industry body Australian Institute of Professional Photography. He is just amazing with our rescue staffies, they all loved him, and his photos are full of personality and are just gorgeous. We have watched him in action and we still don’t quite understand just how he gets such magnificent photos of such active dogs, but he did.

His wife Beck runs the business, and she is very well regarded within the professional photography industry for giving all the clients at Zoo Studio the best possible experience and customer service. It was her drive and organisational skills that saw this calendar come to life, and we can easily see why the hundreds of Zoo Studio clients all love her to bits. Everyone she talks to feels like an instant member of the Zoo Studio family, like we did.
