Cougar Ridge Photography 


We are an internationally published fur and feathers (Canine, Feline, Bird & Wildlife) photography company - a family business since the late 1800's.

All of our wildlife photography is indeed "wild" and we adhere to photographing in an environmentally conscious manner - always with conservation in mind and respect for the wildlife first and foremost.

References are available from our clients. A recurring compliment is that both the owners and the dogs have FUN at their shoots and that Stephanie captures the essence of the animal.

We have always had animals and have shown (since the 1980's), bred, been active in AKC parent and local dog clubs as well as raising different dog breeds including AKC Champion Bred-By Dachshunds, and bred-by Anatolian Shepherd working livestock guardian dogs under the kennel names of "Drifter's Roost" Dachshunds and "Cougar Ridge Anatolians;" and Skye Terriers. We are internationally published and award winning - specializing in custom work for dog, cat, bird, horse and wildlife photography as well as stock photography for domestic and international publishers such as Browntrout, Willow Creek Press, Bearport Publishing, etc.

While we are always pleased to talk with you about any of our images, please bear in mind - ALL RIGHTS RESERVED - copying, alteration, publishing or any other use of our photography without written permission is not permitted and these rights are enforced. Please contact us at:

We schedule custom shoots for your animals, including senior pet memory photos. We shoot on location near you and/or at an AKC show nearby when we are showing our Anatolians and Skye Terriers. We also offer stock photography for most AKC breeds. Feel free to contact us for our upcoming show schedule.

I am not a scenic photographer, I just don't have the patience.  But...sometimes Mother Nature slaps me up side of the head and says "look at this."  Hope you enjoy my "look at this" Scenic photos.
