You'll love working with us...

If you are like me, you probably have over ten thousand pictures of your precious fur balls with you at all times on your phone.

Despite that, it can sometimes be difficult to create an image that displays their unique personality. One you can proudly display on your walls for all your guests to see and admire.

That's where Elite Pet Photography comes in. Our goal is to create artwork that will last a lifetime and you can cherish forever!

What you'll get from us...

Patience - One of the best qualities needed when working with dogs is patience and this is something you'll get when working with us.

Experience - Whether you have a sweet Pit Bull Terrier, an affectionate Shih Tzu or a super energetic Golden doodle, we know how to work with and capture amazing pictures of your dog. An if you have a cat who loves lounging around the house all day, we know how to work with her too!

A fun day for you and your dog - In addition to capturing great photos, we want this experience to be memorable and one that your dog truly enjoys!

Meet Rocco, Your Photographer

Rocco has been working with pets and their people for over ten years. He started Rocco Autero Photography in 2010 as a general portrait photography business. After spending numerous weekends photographing dogs, he decided this was the path he wanted to pursue in his photography business.

In order to better his photography skills, in addition to attending advanced portraiture and studio lighting classes at Photo Manhattan in New York City, he signed up for the Unleashed! Fine Art Pet Photography Workshop in Leesburg, Virginia. Working with three of the most respected pet photographers for a week at this workshop helped shape his vision for his pet photography business, eventually changing his photography studio name to what it is know as today, Elite Pet Photography, in order to better reflect what he's focused on.

In addition to photographing dogs and cats, Rocco is also skilled in animal training and behavior. He attended multiple weeks long workshops at CATCH Canine Dog Training academy and graduated as a CATCH certified dog trainer. In 2019, Rocco achieved a CPDT-KA professional dog trainer certification from the leading independent certification organization for dog trainer.
