Hello, I am Ria Putzker, a 23-year old professional photographer from Austria and my favorite thing in the world is photography. My main subjects are all kinds of dogs! I love to show their unique personality and want to bring a smile to those people who look at my photos.
Usually, I photograph them outside with natural light, but last year a lot changed for all of us, and I couldn't take my usual photos. So I had to come up with something new. I decided to take the photos inside our home, shooting only our family dogs: my very own dog, Kooikerhondjemix Maki, Shepherdmix Eddy, Dachshundmix Phoebe and Pomeranian Ginny. All of them were adopted from a shelter and found a loving home with us. They absolutely love to pose and it is always so much fun to work with them!
Here is a selection of my favorite photos taken during the last 12 months. Each photo follows a specific theme which is mentioned in the title!

This photo simply follows the theme "photography" and I immediately had this image in my mind. My dog Maki, as always, was a great model during this shooting!
I saw this before in some viral tik tok videos and wanted to try this on my own! A lot of cotton was used and a few string lights to create this unique cloud effect!
Maki and Eddy are a gorgeous team. They protect each other. This is my favorite photo that I took of them!
Evening After Work
Another photo following the Harry Potter theme but this time with my boyfriends dog Eddy!
My moms dog Phoebe and my dog Maki. I always feel like they have a special bond between them.
This picture was taken with real confetti. Maki looks so attentive because I was asking her if she wants any food!
To create this neat looking warm light behind the dog I use some extra steady lights.
Phoebe loves it when my mother plays the guitar. This photo was not staged, she fell asleep on her lap and I took a photo of this heartwarming moment!
My sisters dog Ginny!
This was taken on my office desk while the sun was shining through the blinds during the middle of the day.
Two marshmallow bags were used for this!
Of course I had to photograph Maki with a maki for this theme!
Yes, Maki absolutely LOVES to pose! You can do almost anything with her, she is the best model you can wish for!
