Flash and Hound was created out of love for animals and passion for pet photography. We are Craig and Irene Amrine, a husband and wife team and we work together to capture unique and vibrant personalities of Arizona pets. Be it goofy, gentle, serious, or playful - pets make the best camera subjects and we love telling their story through our lens and in our photographs.
We, of course, are proud pet owners ourselves. We are parents to Penny, a 7 year old Hungarian vizsla and Colby, an older Russian blue cat who is afraid of everything and is quite grumpy. Both were adopted: Colby - from a local shelter, and, more recently, Penny - re-homed through a reputable breeder. Penny loves visiting dog parks! Papago Bark Park in Tempe and Chaparral Dog Park in Scottsdale have become our two local favorites. If you ever recognize our copper princess out and about, please come up an say "hi". Recently our photos of Penny were published by AZ Central so she is a bit of a local celebrity.
Craig is a professional photographer and owner of Craig Amrine Photography. His creative beginnings originated in skydiving photography and videography. His camera work earned him a number of national and world championship titles.
In 15 years, he developed a wide range of camera skills and is experienced in shooting weddings, portraits, commercial products, events, real estate, lifestyle and extreme sports. His work has been published numerous times in "Popular Photography" and "Parachutist" magazines often featuring centerfolds. When he is not doing camera work or skydiving, Craig is healing patients at Hidden Rhythm Acupuncture with Penny by his side.
We love to be outdoors and appreciate a good pint. You will often find us at our neighborhood breweries catching up with friends or editing photos. OHSO brewery and PITCH - both with dog-friendly patios are our favorite local watering holes for paw-bvious reasons.
We created Flash and Hound Pet Photography to provide Arizona pet owners with lasting memories of their beloved pets. Each and everyone of our photography sessions is unique and creatively customized to your needs. After all, pets can't take selfies!
We also host photography mini sessions to brighten up any pet-friendly event and help you generate buzz about your pet business.
