Dog Portrait Photography in Richmond-upon Thames, London and Surrey

When I was six, my favourite cartoon was ‘101 Dalmatians’. I begged my parents to buy me a little Dalmatian puppy; as a compromise they got me a miniature apricot poodle which I named Perdy after the cartoon character. Unfortunately, moody little Perdy didn’t care much for me. She occasionally allowed me to cuddle her but those moments were brief and far apart. But she did have a sweet and somewhat soft side too. She would greet me wildly when I entered the house, cuddle up next to me when I took a nap, play fetch, and run around the house in excitement after her bath. Those memories of her follow me wherever I go.

My approach to dog photography combines both my personal experience with dogs, and my professional photography experience to capture your pet’s favourite game, favourite place in the park and also the special bond you share with them. I aspire to capture your dog’s character in a set of unique, natural, beautiful photos which you will cherish in many years to come.

Relaxed and fun dog photo sessions

As a professional dog photographer, I work with natural light to create candid dog photography portraits. I combine the use of portraiture, action photography and documentary style photography in your home and outside to represent the unique character of your dog. During a pet photoshoot, I may ask you to play with your dog, throw a ball or have a big cuddle!

I offer one hour and two hour dog photo sessions. The one hour session takes place either at home or in your dog’s favourite park. If you would like a bit more variety and capture your dog at home, and outside you may wish to consider the two hour session. I will meet you at home or on location, and suggest a few suitable places for portrait shots, and a few games for action shots. It is always good to bring a ball / favourite toy and some treats! After the photoshoot, I will email you a link to a private, password protected gallery on my website where you can view and select your photos. Please note that digital files and/or prints are purchased separately. For a full price list, please contact me.

Locations

I work all across London and Surrey, and have photographed dogs in Hampstead Heath, Richmond Park, Marble Hill Park and beautiful Surrey Hills.

I am more than happy to travel to other destinations, however due to extra time and occasionally an overnight stay, this type of work may involve additional fees. Please contact me if you would like to enquire.
