the photographers

TERESA BERG is a graduate of Elkins Institute of Photography and a member of the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI). She is recognized for her tender, emotional and often humorous portraits which are on display and in publication across the country. She trains photographers nationally to use their talents to increase adoption rates for animals living in shelters and foster homes. You can read about her animal rescue work on her blog: FOCUS ON RESCUE. Her infinite patience and sense of humor make her very comfortable with dogs, kids and chaos, in general. A lifelong photographer with many years of  film and darkroom experience, she now works mostly with digital cameras shooting dogs, kids and families from her studio in Dallas.

“Every dog is a work of art to me, the way they move, their texture — they just fascinate me! I never dreamed I’d end up shooting dogs for a living, but the variety and creative challenge is really addictive.”  She is a regular contributor to several publications and publishes two dog calendars each year. She was recently profiled by Steve Hartman for CBS Sunday Morning, has done live interviews on Martha Stewart Living radio and BBC live in London.  She was recently featured in Country Living Magazine, Guideposts and The Today Show online for her work photographing rescue dogs. She continues to train rescue volunteers, showing them how to improve adoption rates by improving their dog  and cat photography.

BEV HOLLIS has been photographing pets professionally since starting her business in 2006.  She is a licensed veterinarian and received her doctorate from the University of Tennessee. While practicing veterinary medicine Bev did post-doctoral work in animal behavior.  It is this extensive and specialized training that Bev believes allows her to better understand her animal subjects.

Bev has received numerous awards for her photography and her animal work has been featured in magazines, calendars and commercially in the Washington, DC area.  She was recently profiled in Country Woman magazine.

Bev owns Bev Hollis Photography and shoots in northern Virginia’s hunt country.  She is happiest doing  location work and does most of her shooting in rural settings or amongst the landmarks and architecture of Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia. See Bev’s work at:
