Photographer Gerrard Charles Gethings's pet portraits exhibit each dog's individual personality and explores their photogenic nature.

In each portrait Gerrard attempts to capture the pet's character and peer into their playfulness. The entire series features zoomed in shots of the animals to focus on their hilarious facial expressions and body language. Gerrard personifies the pets making them appear emotional and similar to human portraits. Adorable ones include a dog sticking out his tongue and another making a serious face, his jowls making the picture even more heartwarming. The blank backgrounds and simple colors keep the photos genuine and center the focus on the animal and nothing else.

Gerrad uses different light, angles and positioning to create variety in the photo series and makes sure each pet portrait shows off a splash of personality. Stats for Personified Pooch Portraits Trending: Older & Buzzing
