I love animals and many of us do. They’re so expressive and it makes you wonder what they’re thinking of. You see the innocence in their eyes and you know it’s genuine. Let’s not forget to mention their ever ready playful demeanor. When you combine these vibrant attributes with photography, it sets up for some endearing work. Cue in animal photographer, Jessica Trinh.
At the age 13, Jessica Trinh was inspired to start photography by her golden retriever, Chuppy. She loved setting her camera on auto and considered herself spectacular for being able to capture a decent photo. A few years passed and Jessica decided to expand her knowledge and learn more about photography. She is now 18 years old and still considers herself an aspiring photographer. Ever since she set her hands on a camera, she knew that she had unlocked a new dimension, and I believe she has.
”There is a mission behind my photos. I wanted to make a statement in pet photography. I wanted to call it an art. It started ever since I set my hands on a camera; I knew I had unlocked a new dimension. One where you can expand your imagination and run for endless miles. Photography makes you look at things differently. You notice rain drops and the way the sun kisses the Earth. You breath in every moment of your life. You love to live and live to love.
There is no time to waste because there is an urgency to capture each loving gesture, smile, and laugh in both humans and animals. Then every photograph becomes timeless and you smile, knowing that you hold a few split seconds in your hands.
I live in a box called a camera with the lens as my window and everyday I sit on my couch watching the world outside through a different perspective. No worries, my dogs are right beside me looking at it the same way.”
