It’s pet photoshoot time! What cuter way to celebrate your love for your pet than with a photoshoot!

Elvin Lam will be hosting this super special addition to the Queer PHOTO Festival.

Elvin is a Deaf Auslan user with a passion for Animals and is excited to meet you and your furry loved ones!

Before booking in ensure that:

If you’re bringing a dog, it is leashed trained
If you’re bringing a cat, that it can stay still when directed by its owner
If you would like to bring another type of pet, that it can stay still for a photo and is safe for others to be around
Your animal is groomed prior to attending
Your animal is comfy with flashing lights as the camera will have a flash
What will I need to bring to the shoot?

Animal treats/toys
Animal costume (if your animal likes these)
Leash and crate
A week prior to the event, you will be sent an email with directions for entering and exiting the building and a reminder of what to bring.

This event is totally free but spots are strictly limited so book in early.

If you are late for your spot, you will not be able to participate.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
