“Susan has been an inspiration to me on many levels. She’s not only an amazingly talented photographer and photoshop genius, but also a patient and knowledgeable teacher. Let’s not forget her interpersonal skills, which reflect her kind spirit. Susan’s extensive experience and success in the world of stock photography allowed her to create an amazing class which provides an in-depth look into the topic. She not only has the experience to deliver important insight and know how, but is an wonderful teacher, who is patient and thorough, making sure everyone was able to follow and understood the content.”

Good-Focused Photo Program

Our company was founded by Susan Schmitz DBA A Dog’s Life Photography in 2005 when she started off as a pet photographer. To grow her skills and portfolio, she started donating her time to pet rescues by taking free photos of animals for adoption ads. Over the years, she expanded this program to also assist wildlife conservation organizations with their photography needs.

Her unique signature style of fun and whimsical composited images helps to draw much needed attention to the animals and the rescue organizations that they were saved by.

To keep this program running, we license the images that we produce as royalty-free stock photography for the animal industry. We also sell wall art and decor for pet-lovers and pet businesses.


Your photo purchase helps to save the lives of animals!

This is what we are focused on…

Everything we do is for a cause.

Our company was build around the desire to support good causes that are making a difference in the world. It’s not enough for us to just take pretty pictures. There must be a greater purpose to all that we create.

Most of the images of animals that we sell were taken through our good-focused photo programs and adventures. These programs help to raise awareness and funds for non-profits worldwide. We also donate a portion of proceeds to good-causes that are focused on animal welfare, conservation and community outreach.

We like to do good deeds for others.

We provide complimentary photography services to select animal welfare organizations for their marketing, awareness and fundraising needs. These images are then sold as art and licensed as stock photography to keep the program running.

If you run a non-profit organization that is focused on helping animals and are in need of some good photos, check out our cause-focused photo program. If we can’t take photos for you, we can give you a good discount on stock photos.

We take time out to wander about.

Take a life-changing journey with us through our sister company Adventure Artists International. If you are a visual artist that would like to explore the world, see spectacular wildlife and help the places that you visit through your art, you belong in our flock.

Most of the wildlife photos for sale on this website were taken during good-focused adventures. Proceeds benefit the people and animals that reside in the lands that we visited. We can help you to do the same with your art.
