Pets are so loved by Kimpton Hotels that they’re throwing a contest to find the most photogenic creature out there. Here’s a few tips on taking a stellar pet photo and entry details:

How to Take a Pet-tacular Photo

  • Photograph your pet in natural light and avoid flash or harsh light – outside early in the morning or late in the evening work well
  • Get down on their level
  • Aim to keep your pet’s eyes in focus
  • Convey their personality – use toys or treats to hold attention and encourage playfulness
  • Find a complementary background to your pet’s coloring – dark fur against a light background or vice versa
  • Fill the frame – use a zoom to get their full face or full body in the shot (or crop later)
  • Use patience – happy pets are busy pets, so try not to be in a rush

Paw-parazzi Contest Details:

Anyone can upload a photo from April 1 through May 31, 2012. The contest has four rounds, each lasting approximately two weeks. The five photos with the most ‘Like’ votes at the end of each round will win prizes from Olive, Polka Dog Bakery, and FIDO Friendly magazine.

From the 20 Finalists, judges from Animal Radio will select one Grand Prize photo to win the Ultimate hosPETality Getaway including:

  • A three night stay at a Kimpton Hotel of your choice
  • Two round trip tickets on JetBlue for human passengers
  • One $100 Kimpton Restaurant or in-room dining gift certificate
  • One in-room spa treatment for two
  • Quaker Pet Group & Republic of Paws Ultimate Legacy Pet Carrier
