My name is Tina Marie Quatroni and I thank you for taking the time to visit my site and visit here to learn a little more about me.
I am a self taught digital artist and photographer. My photography skills became apparent when I was a child growing up with my grandmother. I took her 35mm point-and-shoot and ran! I took photos of our 5 dogs, our yard, our pool…practically anything. Until I learned there was emotion. I saw once in a photograph that I took that I could not just feel, but SEE emotion. That is when I took my photography to the next level. Viewing the world thru a lens.
I live with my husband Anthony in a beautiful Hamlet called Holmes located in Pawling, NY. We reside here with our Black Labrador, Cassie as well as with our 3 cats, Sheba, Mogie and Riley. Our animals are our life and love and they teach us many things, especially appreciation for life.
PETCHA was inspired by my love for my pets and my love for photography. I enjoy capturing their personal, intimate moments. Sheba resting in the sun with her eyes closed absorbing the heat, Mogie getting ready for a long walk in the woods, Riley sitting amongst leaves and reacting to all the sounds or my darling Cassie starting out her young life and absorbing everything like a sponge.
These timeless and priceless moments are what I want to capture for you. I shoot completely on location and I do not “pose” your pet. I am not the photographer for you if that is what you seek. I look to capture THEM…their personality, their emotions, their play, their love.
Thank you for considering PETCHA Photography and I look forward to working with you
