FURRY FRIEND PHOTOGRAPHER
Capturing beautiful, natural photos of your beloved pet dog that showcase their unique personality
After booking a session with me, we will discuss the brief (e.g. I'll ask some questions about your dog and what type of photos you would like) and agree upon a location. Normally this will be a location that you are familiar with so that you, and more importantly your dog, is relaxed.
On the day I will start by getting to know your dog so that he/she is comfortable with me before starting the photoshoot. Generally I will use a zoom lens so that I don't have to be close to your dog. I would only use a lens that requires me to be close to your dog if he/she is comfortable with both me and the camera.
The photoshoot will last one to three hours during which I will be taking hundreds of photos.
I can also take photos in your home - I have a portable studio but would require a clear space of at least 5m x 5m in order to set it up. Alternatively I can offer to take studio photos at my home.
Following the session I will then edit these and add the best photos (normally 30 to 50) to a private, password protected, gallery which you will be given access to. The editing process can take up to one week following the photoshoot.
Once you have viewed the photos, you can start to decide which ones you would like to buy and in what format (printed or digital). I offer a variety of Wall Art options and use professional printing partners to produce images to the highest standards.
A session fee of £150 (for up to two dogs) is payable at the time of booking and covers the briefing session, reasonable travel time*, the photoshoot, detailed editing of the photos, and access to the private gallery. In addition a £75 product credit is included which can be used towards the purchase of Wall Art.
I can provide a gift card should you wish to purchase the photoshoot as a gift.

*Location: I am predominantly based in London and South-East England but can travel further (for example I travel regularly to Shropshire to visit family). Contact me to discuss.
What if my dog is nervous?
My dog Schlappohr is a nervous dog - he can be reactive towards both people and dogs. Whilst I'm not a trained behaviourist I have read LOTS of books and articles on the topic of reactive dogs and taken advice from trained behaviourists. So I do understand the various Dos and Don'ts e.g. Do ignore, Don't make eye contact, Don't touch.
As mentioned above, I use a zoom lens for most photos. Whilst that means I wouldn't be able to take photos such as this one, you will still get lots of great photos of your dog!
