Before our session...
...I will ask you to fill out a questionnaire to get to know your dogs better and find out what would you like me to capture.
We can choose the location based on these - I'm happy to photograph confident, well-trained dogs in an urban environment and nervous dogs in a private paddock. Whatever your dog's temperament, rest assured, we will find the place where their true personality will shine through, and you'll have beautiful artwork of them to treasure forever.
I believe that each dog is different and needs a unique approach
That's why my sessions do not have a time limit. I can capture plenty of beautiful images in an hour most of the time. However, if your dog is a bit timid, I'm more than happy to hang around longer and act as a treat dispenser until they are relaxed enough to pose for some pictures. I can always use a long lens, so I don't need to be very close.
I'm very passionate about positive training (I'm a training assistant at Sussex County Dog Training); hence the dog's comfort always comes first for me.
A little known secret is that most dog portraits are taken with the dogs on the lead
Thanks to my editing skills, I can make the dogs look as if they were performing an obedience level stay.
I also have some tricks to get my furry clients' attention - if only for a split second while I press the shutter.
All in all, I'm confident that we can create stunning artwork of your dog, no matter how excited, anxious, or goofy they are.
During our session...
...I will take up to a thousand images to ensure that I capture a nice variety of pictures, from stunning classic portraits to silly action shots. I cull and edit the best photos and put together a lovely slideshow from them that you'll be able to see at the Ordering Appointment.
At the Ordering Appointment...
...your £50 Reservation Retainer turns into product credit, and you'll get to see the images we created and can decide which of my packages you want. I will help you to find the best picture for your wall, the one that will make you smile every day.
Of course, I will have product samples with me for your peace of mind.
I only use leading-edge professional printing partners, where colour calibration is done at least twice a day on equipment designed to reproduce images to the highest standards.
That's why I'm confident to offer you a Double Guarantee:
- if you don't like your images, the Reservation Retainer will be refunded, no question asked
- if the product does not meet your expectations, it will be exchanged for free
