London Dog Photographer FAQ - image of a Staffie cross looking up at the camera

Eight helpful FAQs

Yes it’s easier to work with a dog that will sit, stand, lie down on command! But life isn’t perfect is it?! It’s still possible to take great images of your dog even if they’re not that well behaved!

A location that is quiet will help to reduce the number of distractions.

Most importantly you need to stay relaxed because your dog will pick up on your stress!

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.

I also use a zoom lens for the majority of my photos, so I don’t need to get close to your dog and would only do so if they were comfortable!

As with Q1, you need to stay relaxed!

Not a problem!  Whilst you won’t see any images in my portfolio with the dog on-lead, in reality a lot of those dogs were on-lead!

Part of my editing process is to remove the lead so you’d never know it was there!

If you need to stand next to your dog to hold the lead, as long as you hold the lead away from your dog’s fur, I can easily remove both yourself and the lead!

We are at the mercy of the great British weather!  Ahead of our session, I keep a close eye on the weather forecast.

Should the forecast look like rain or heavy cloud, we will need to reschedule as it will be hard to get good images.

If (on the rare occasion) it is forecast to be very hot, again we may need to reschedule as I wouldn’t want a dog to get heatstroke.

I cover London and the South-East of England (Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, Hampshire, Essex, Surrey and Hertfordshire).  If you are based outside of that area, I will charge an extra travel fee – please contact me to discuss.

Yes, but there is an additional cost of £25 per dog.

I completely understand that due to a variety of reasons you may need to reschedule the session.

You may reschedule the session ONCE, otherwise you will lose the session fee.

If you cancel the session with less than 72 hours notice, you will lose the session fee.

My speciality is dog photography, so the majority of the photos will be be focussed on your furry friend.  I do however like to show the bond between owner and dog, such as images of your dog shaking your hand.  

Should you have specific images in mind, please do contact me to discuss.
