Tracy Munson, MPA
Tracy’s first word was “cat”. The cat didn’t even like her but was still her favourite member of the family. As a little girl, she never dreamed of having babies. She dreamed of having a koala bear and a monkey. She didn’t have imaginary friends, she had imaginary pets.
Little has changed. Tracy still unapologetically prefers animal company to humans. Her award-winning pet photography work demonstrates a natural connection with her subjects and a seasoned understanding of animal behaviour.
For over 25 years, Tracy nurtured the human-animal bond as a veterinary technician and animal shelter worker. Now, she is deeply committed to creating a fun and positive experience for the animals in front of her lens and believes that this is the key to capturing the personality-filled pet portraits that her clients love.
While living in Toronto, Tracy took every opportunity to escape the city and her rewarding but stressful job in one of the country’s largest animal shelters. For many years, she and her partner Graham explored Canada by car with a tent, a camera, and their 2 tiny dogs. After seeing it all, Atlantic Canada kept drawing her back and in 2018 she escaped city life for good, relocating to the beautiful Bay of Fundy Region in New Brunswick to photograph companion animals full-time.
