Ever wish you could see the world through the eyes of your pet? It’s now possible to photograph a beloved pet’s daily adventures from the animal’s own point of view using a PetCam—a small, lightweight camera you can easily attach to a pet’s collar or harness and set to take photos at predetermined intervals.
In PetCam: The World Through the Lens of Our Four-Legged Friends, photographer and animal lover Chris Keeney shows how to use a PetCam with your own pet and offers expert technical know-how and inspiring creative suggestions to get you started.
The heart of the book is nearly a hundred PetCam photos taken by a diverse international roster of creative critters. From the slopes of the Swiss Alps to the streets of Tokyo to the beaches of San Diego, we see how these twenty furry photographers view their surroundings, their human companions, and their animal friends. As their PetCams snap pictures, the animals take off on joyous escapades, race alongside kids on skateboards, play epic games of fetch, snuggle with a favorite human—or just nap in the sun. The book also includes photos of the pets wearing their cameras and hilarious “artist statements” written in the voice of these talented animal image-makers, including Villa the goat; Scrappy the Chihuahua; Xander the Manx cat; Abbott the Jack Russell Terrier; Fiona the Red Angus Cow; Casper the Labrador Retriever; and Gus, a tiny Abyssinian guinea pig with a big artistic vision.
“Setting off with a PetCam rigged to your pup’s collar means that an adventure is in store for both of you. Whenever I attach a camera to my dog Fred, he gets excited. He knows that we’re about to go somewhere fun, often a place new to both of us. And since the camera is small, it doesn’t get in the way of his good time or weigh him down as he explores.” — Chris Keeney, from the book
