The Art and Science of Colorful Dog Photography

The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.
-Coco Chanel

Haute Dog specializes in creating fashion-forward photos that are just like your pet - one of a kind. Inspired by the runways of London and Paris, we use bold colors, dynamic angles, and avant-garde lighting to make your dog's larger-than-life personality live forever. But did you know every color has a meaning and personality of its own? Color theory is both the science and art of using color. It explains how humans perceive color; and the visual effects of how colors mix, match or contrast with each other. Brands around the world study the effects colors have on consumers in an effort to convey their company missions. My college degree is in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior, so I love color psychology and the messages they communicate subconsciously!
