Dog Photography

"Captivating moments to treasure for a lifetime..."

Rough Collie Dog Photography Lake District, Cumbria

Professional Dog Photography Fine Art Prints

I'm a portrait and action dog photographer - with outdoor photoshoots arranged throughout the Lake District as well as studio portraits in a mobile studio. My clients range from individuals looking for professional prints of their four-legged friend to large organisations such as the National Trust. 

 

My goal is to create natural, artistic images that will capture your dog's personality and individual character. The photographs are then crafted into a collection of stunning, giclée fine art prints (with a host of other luxury artwork display options to choose from), giving you wall-art pictures to treasure for a lifetime.

What's Involved?

Sessions are always relaxed and informal, made up of walk and play, and as much fun for your dog as possible!

Location plays a big part in my work and from woodlands to fells I like to use some of the Lake District's beautiful scenery as a backdrop. 


Catering for all kinds of dogs, large or small, young or old, active and boisterous, nervous or shy - every one is welcome!


Each outdoor session will be carefully tailor-made to your dog's age, needs and character. We'll talk everything through over a telephone call before the shoot to discuss the kinds of images you would like to have captured and to make sure the shoot is planned with your dog's specific needs in mind.

 

Why Me?

Beyond photographic techniques, understanding dog behaviour is key to producing captivating images - the kind you want to display or gift to a family member or friend.

My life has always revolved around dogs; they have always been one of the family.

 

I rely on that knowledge and experience to get the very best out of all dogs by making sure they're relaxed and comfortable.

My images are sold around the globe, published in books and magazines worldwide and have recently been featured in a BBC TV documentary.

 

I'm currently working with the National Trust on a dog photography studio event at Fell Foot, Cumbria and also work as a photographer for  Animal Rescue Cumbria, The Wainwright shelter, who work tirelessly to find new homes for dogs and cats.

How It Works

1. Get in touch by phone or email for a chat about your dog, any special requirements and to book a 1-2 hour photo session at a nearby, convenient location.   

2. After the session I will edit the images and upload them to your personal online gallery to view  (usually within 14 days of the session). 

3. Choose your favourite images which will include a complimentary 16" x 12" signed, mounted Giclée Fine Art Print (worth £49).  

 

Although the package prices have been designed to help you make some great savings you can also choose items on an individual, à la carte basis too.
