The Experience

I love photographing dogs in the great outdoors! Your experience will generally take place during a walk where your dog can relax, have fun, and enjoy the freedom to run around and play in their favourite kind of environment. We can hit the woods, the countryside, a local park or the beach; it is totally up to you and your dog's needs.

Maybe you have an urban pup who's better suited to life in the city? Need to keep your pup on a lead, no problem! I can remove leads in Photoshop so your dog remains safe and secure during the shoot.

If your dog is older or nervous and feels more secure at home, we can simply shoot in your garden.


I aim for your pups to have fun in a safe and comfortable environment while I capture compelling images to showcase their uniqueness and beautiful personalities.

My Dog will Be no good for a photo shoot!

I've heard this many times and people have been shocked by the beautiful images that they have been presented with at the end of a photo shoot. Part of being a successful dog photographer is having the ability to remain patient, friendly and fun, and anticipating what dogs are going to do. I have photographed hundreds of dogs, all of whom have had different personalities and demeanours. You just need to find their motivation, be patient, have a sense of humour and let them be themselves.

How many photos will I get?

You never know what will happen on a shoot but I aim for approximately 30 edited gallery proofs.

How much do prints cost?

Each shoot includes a 10"x8" archive quality print and a matching digital file. Additional artworks can be purchased after you have viewed and chosen your favourite images inside your online gallery. Artwork starts at £30, a list of samples can be seen here.

What’s the best time of year for a shoot?

There are great opportunities all year round, what time of year you choose to book will depend on what type of photos you are after. You could choose to shoot amongst the fresh woodland flowers of spring, the meadow wildflowers of summer or the falling leaves of Autumn. The beach is also a great option for any time of the year, but please remember that many are off limits to dogs between March-September.

What's the best time of day for shoot?

Lighting conditions are usually best for photography in the 2 hours leading up to sunset. Midday light can be quite harsh, producing harder shadows and less pleasant results overall.  Additionally, Summer temperatures can sometimes be too much for particular breeds. It's always best to make an assessment of your breed of dog, the time of year and where we are due to go for the session to decide what is the most appropriate time.

Can my family join in?

Yes of course! It's great to get a variety of photos during your session, your dog is part of the family after all! Bring who you like, but try to keep numbers to a minimum so that your dog doesn’t get too distracted by several generations of aunts and uncles! Two is an ideal number because you can call your dog between you, but you can bring your children to the shoot and I can photograph the whole family with your dog.

*How Far Will You Travel?

I'm based in Cwmbran, South Wales, and include travel for sessions within a 20 mile radius of this location. Additional mileage is charged at 45p per mile outside of this radius in each direction. 
During my UK tours, I do not charge travel fees if I am visiting your area.

What if the weather is bad?

I am happy to photograph in all weathers, including light rain. Heavy rain (and wind) is no fun for you, your dog or for my camera. I will always check what the weather is doing in the run up to the shoot and will confirm or rearrange with you as appropriate. If we meet up for a session and the weather suddenly takes a turn for the worse, I will decide if the weather is not suitable and we will arrange another time to meet

(Rain check). This won’t cost you any extra and we will continue to meet until your allocated and paid for session has been completed.


I have more than four dogs, can I still book a shoot?

Of course, the more the merrier! Please contact me for a bespoke price.



What happens after the session?

Once we have completed the photo shoot I will begin the process of selecting and editing the very best photos from your session. These will then be uploaded to a private gallery for you to view at your leisure. From here, you can choose your included 10"x8" print, save a list of your favourite images and order additional artwork. All orders are checked by myself before being confirmed and shipped directly from a professional photographic lab. If you don’t want to order directly from your gallery then I am happy to do this for you at no extra charge, although orders will need to be paid for up-front. The gallery will stay active for 3 months, after which I will archive the photos to make space. Of course, I will let you know before this happens.

Who owns the copyright?

I retain the copyright for any and all images produced during your session. If you need to purchase the copyright to your images please contact me for further information, otherwise, images are sold under a personal use license. Any digital files you purchase can be shared on Facebook etc and you are free to get them printed by your chosen service provider. You are not permitted to sell them, enter them into any competitions, allow third parties to share them directly as their own, nor use them for any commercial purpose.
