Pet photography, particularly dog photography is one of my favourite genres; a treasured member of the family with their own unique personalities. I love creating works of art that show the character of the dog that you will cherish forever.
Worried that your dog isn’t trained, won’t sit still, won’t look at the camera, too young or too old? Don’t worry, pet photography can sometimes be a challenge for anyone, but with the right knowledge and experience I can get you the images you will adore. And if it doesn’t work out? Just like us humans, we all have our good days and our off days, pet photography requires patience so we’ll simply reschedule, no dramas.
The images on this page are a small selection of pet photography sessions which were taken in the owners home with a small lighting setup, meaning that they could be taken at a convenient time and where the dogs were comfortable. But I also like to get out on location, somewhere familiar to the dog so that they can show their true character.
One of the saddest moments in my life was the loss of our black labrador; a treasured member of the family with such a warm and loving personality who passed all too soon. Frustratingly, even as a photographer, I only have a few snapshots of him on my phone. The snapshots are fine, but not something I would have on my wall. To this day I wish I had taken some proper images to keep him alive and in our hearts.
Sometimes our busy lives just get in the way, but that was a hard lesson for me, which is why I want to do my very best for you.
The pet photography photoshoot doesn’t have to be constrained in your home, we can go for your favourite walk, play in the park, a wander through some local woods or whatever other idea you might have, or do a mix and match of different dog portraits outside and inside.
Personally I love the type of images you can see on this page, they have more of a ‘fine art portrait’ look, but equally some great action shots of your pet can also look amazing.
Sessions are tailored completely to your own needs and I will advise accordingly.
I want to ensure you get the very best from the session, so this is the normal schedule:
