Local pet photographer and founder of the Puptrait Studio, J.B. Shepard, named “Baltimore’s Best Photographer” by the Baltimore Sun Readers’ Choice Awards.

(Baltimore, MD) – In the “Baltimore Sun’s Best of 2020” online poll conducted in March, the publication’s readers enthusiastically named J.B.

The Puptrait Studio founder and creative lead J.B. Shepard reacted to the news of the win. “Honestly, I was surprised as anyone to learn the news. This year’s pool of nominees was extremely competitive and contained exceptional photographers shooting a wide range of genre’s — including commercial photography, family portrait, and event photography,” he said, “and, as someone who exclusively photographs dog portraits, winning a general photography award like this is both gratifying and humbling. Our client base is small — especially when compared to the huge networks of photographers that shoot weddings and other events. So, to win a readers’ choice award, I think really speaks to how passionate our clients are about their dogs and by extension, to a lesser degree, our pet photography. “
