"You've made me fall in love all over again."

Jess was incredibly easy to communicate with about my goals for the session, and the photos exceeded all of my expectations. Jess was very patient with the horses and had some great tricks for getting them to pose for some incredible shots. I could not be more pleased with the way the entire session went, as Jess was always keeping the happiness of the horses as her top priority while still taking the most special photos.

Jess is the most creative and easy to work with photographer that we have ever hired. Whether it was for portraits of our dogs or photos for our new business website, her eye for detail and creativity produced photographs that were outstanding, often truly breathtaking. There are many photographers out there, but there is only one Jess Bell. You will not be disappointed.

If you’re looking for some of the most original, eye-catching and artistic animal photography in Ontario, look no further.

Jess has always had a flair for the dynamic and artistic. This, coupled with an innate love of animals, has resulted in pursuing animal photography with a passion. 

Jess is a dog owner and trainer herself, specializing in building relationships and engagement between dog and owner via play, food and praise. She has a great deal of patience and is well-acquainted with animals' quirks, so she knows how to bide her time to capture the perfect shot. Her goal for every photography session is to ensure that all parties involved, both animals and their people, thoroughly enjoy themselves.

Jess grew up in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Now, she lives in Scarborough and travels throughout the Greater Toronto Area, Hamilton, Niagara, Barrie, Burlington, Belleville and beyond to work with clients.

We welcome you to contact Jess with any questions you might have, and to discuss turning your pets into works of art.
