Tracy Willis is a photographer based in Bournemouth, Dorset, UK who created the series “Animal Antics” to portrait a surreal world in which animals are the main characters. The result is awesome!
She came across photography by chance when she was 40 years old and the passion she discovered in it was so big that she ended up turning photography into her full-time job. And not only that, she also started winning awards and hasn’t stopped since.
She varies from photographing babies, children, maternity scenes, pets and creative arts, although her thing are newborn babies.
For her series “Animal Antics” she decided to explore a surreal world and bring life to it. She wrote in Bored Panda:
“These images allow me to expand my mind as a full time photographer, be creative and free my mind”

She says it takes her hours to create these images because after she comes up with the idea, she builds the story and sketches it. Then she either looks for pictures of the elements she will use, or photographs them. After that, she photographs her subjects in her studio and then she puts the images together using Adobe Photoshop. This last part usually takes days.
Since she has 5 dogs, 2 rabbits and 3 mice of her own, finding subjects is never hard. And of course, if she needs a different animal, her customers or the local pet shop and there to help.
