About commercial animal photographer Jamie Piper ‘Cowbelly’

commercial animal photographer jamie piper

Hey there! I’m Jamie Piper. I’m a commercial animal photographer (dogs and cats mostly) who got my start in 2003 in Seattle, under the business name Cowbelly Pet Photography.

I shot for both private and commercial clients from 2003-early 2015 before switching to shooting exclusively for commercial clients. In 2015 I moved from Seattle to California and now reside in San Diego. I shoot in San Diego, Los Angeles and Orlando.

Along with doing photography for commercial clients, I also share all of the knowledge I’ve accumulated about commercial photography in my commercial photography guides here, and I wrote a book called Beautiful Beasties, a Creative Guide to Modern Pet Photography, published by Wiley Publishing.

Here are some of the clients I have worked with.
