Sony has announced “Pawgraphy”, an initiative that encourages paw parents to celebrate the love of their furry four-legged companions through the lens of photography and casual video shooting by posting pawsome photos and videos of themselves and their fur kids on social media.
Recently, Malaysians have been spending much more time at home whether it be work or play. This has resulted in an increase in pet ownership and a trendy new wave of pet owners sharing photos and videos of themselves with their pet on social media platforms. This allows them to remember the moment and share these wonderful memories with their family, friends and other pet lovers. Some pets even have their own Facebook and Instagram accounts to update their fans on their daily lives.
Sony will also be providing platforms for pet owners to learn about their camera offerings in real time to master the art of shooting photos and videos of themselves with their fluffy companion. Pet owners can also enhance their social media content and make them stand out, using Sony’s advanced camera offerings.
