Tonya Schabacker

Final Tonya STonya started honing her skills as a child using a simple 110 camera to take pictures of her pets, Sylvester and Zeus. She went on to study photography at Portfolio Center in Atlanta while doing part-time work at the local Humane Society. She walked away with both a degree, and another cat. As a professional commercial and editorial photographer, she has managed to take her two favorite things — animals and cameras —and combine them into a career. Known for her unique ability to capture animals’ unique personality, her captivating work has been featured on pet food packaging, calendars, greeting cards and in national ads. A wanderer at heart, she has lived in 6 different states, but can currently be found in Austin, TX with her pet-loving-husband, 2 dogs and cat.
