Cheryl Gottschall is a professional photographer specializing in dog portrait photography.  What separates her from the pack is her ability to connect with dogs in a way that they respond to her and end up posing for the camera. Even the most hyper dogs will stop to give a pose. She is also a commercial photographer with many year of studio and portrait experience shooting for large corporations and small businesses. Photography is not just a hobby for her it is her life. As with many photographers she started out young, in middle school. The difference is she went on to obtain a BS degree in Medical photography, studied fine art and documentary photography in Austria, Worked in New York and Philadelphia before moving to NC, had a retail photography store in Raleigh, traveled extensively just to photograph, exhibited, won awards, has never had a job that wasn’t photography related, owns her own photography business and still shoots just for fun. She has never been without a camera in hand. In addition to the passion for photography the passion for dogs is just as great.
