Four Foot Fotos, Ballarat

Steve Barnes

I'm the main photographer at Four Foot Fotos. I started out photography with my daughter who is unable to work, but able to sustain a few hours of activity; and she's crazy about dogs! She also likes alpacas, cats, sheep, horses, possums and almost anything else that breaths! But seriously, it's a real calling for us. I constantly run into people who have lost a pet recently, are missing them terribly and don't have a good photo to help them remember their personally. Life is too short to not take a moment to cement these memories with beautiful pet photography, and I can photograph you with your pet if you want a real momento.

Those significant photographs

I delivered three prints of Myer recently. There were technically better photographs than two of these, but they were selected not on technical assessment, but emotional significance. I would never have selected the one in the wheelchair; in truth I would never have taken it if the owner had not requested it. But it’s not …
