dogs are family too!
Our Creative Director was awarded the Master Photographers Pet Photographer of the Year in Feb 2022.
(Because dogs come in all shapes and sizes!)
We have photographed all manner of dogs over the years, big ones, small ones, timid ones, bouncy crazy hounds, working dogs, puppies and old timers. Sometimes we photograph the dogs with their owners and sometimes on their own or with other dogs but each of them has a soul and a character that we do our best to capture for you to keep.
A photoshoot the weather can’t spoil! Our studio is completely dog friendly and our studio dog portraits make great talking points. The use of professional studio lighting and camera equipment enables us to create stunning detailed photos of your dog that make fantastic larger than life pieces of wall art for your home.
A lovely alternative to our studio portrait sessions is a location shoot with your dog, perhaps at your special place or at one of the stunning locations located nearby. Woods, parks, beaches or hillsides can all provide a beautiful setting for an environmental dog photography session. We are also surrounded by some stunning Hertfordshire countryside adjacent to the studio so it’s perfectly possible to combine this with a studio session.
If you are a dog breeder then we would love to create puppy photos of your litter both as group shots and individually. Ideally before they head off to their new homes. Because the puppies aren’t allowed out we bring our portable photo studio to you to take the puppy photos. These shoots are usually mayhem but we have lots of patience and who doesn’t love puppies!
PHOTOS ARE BEAUTIFUL
Ian made us (and more importantly Ziggy!) relaxed immediately. I was amazed by some of the poses he was able to get out of Ziggy, who rarely sits still for more than 5 seconds! The shots on the chair are particularly special. The photos are beautiful and we can't wait to have them framed and on the wall at home.
What makes us different
we speak fluent dog
We’ve grown up with dogs our whole lives and we currently have a 4 year old Bernese Mountain Dog called Dylan (here he is with his tongue out Tuesday look). As a result it seemed like second nature to photograph dogs and they are now one of our most popular photo shoots. If we’re really honest many of our clients would rather have a portrait photograph of their dog on their wall than one of their human family!
Love it, you really captured him well!
Dog Photo Shoot FAQ’s
what should i bring with me?
Well firstly your dog or dogs obviously! We recommend you bring a selection of their favourite treats and any toys or props your dog responds well to. Whilst we have plenty of our own each dog is different. Perhaps not a large bone though as we don’t want them spending the whole shoot eating!
how many dogs can i bring?
Bring the whole pack! We don’t mind if it’s one or a whole litter of puppies although they might take a little longer to photograph! Make sure we know in advance how many to expect!
How long does the shoot last?
The short answer is usually about an hour but we make it fun for the dogs and try different things to keep them interested, with frequent breaks if needed. Once we have the shots we need or if your dog shows any sign of stress we’ll stop. With multiple dogs it may take a little longer.
i have an idea for a photo shoot
That’s great we’re all ears for new ideas although hopefully you like what we do already! Just let us know and we will do our best to bring your idea to life.
SO MANY GOOD PHOTOS
Loved the way Ian interacted with our dog, he's not normally so obedient! The photos are great and really captured Arran's spirit. It was great to get photos both outside and in the studio although it did make it harder to choose as there were so many good photos!
The photo shoot is just the start
Once the shoot is over we will book you in to come back to view the finished photos and order your finished products. This is secretly our favourite bit - the pressure is off and we love to see your reactions!
