DISTINCTIVE PHOTOGRAPHY for DISCERNING DOG LOVERS

and their one-of-a-kind canine counterparts

Josie Baughan dog photographer from Northamptonshire UK

Hi there, I’m Josie – self-confessed geek, major movie buff, Disney aficionado, and tireless crusader against unruly hair.

It’s always been my mission to pursue a life in the arts, to capture and create something beautiful. As a dog photographer, I get to do just that. Why dogs? For me, they’re the perfect subject – naturally expressive, distinctive and entirely unique. Whenever there’s a dog in front of my lens, I’m free to explore all of the things I love most about art – aesthetics, inspiration, and beauty.

The Artisan Hound offers an exclusive canine portraiture service in and around Northamptonshire, with a passion and a promise to create imagery that’s as beautiful and expressive as its canine subjects.

THE HEART BEHIND THE HOUND

To me, the term ‘artisan’ isn’t a label – it’s an approach. It’s about nurturing and honing an understanding of my craft, coupled with a deep love for my work and my subjects. It’s about taking pride in my work and dedicating myself to producing something of real value for my community. It’s a world where I’m free from the confines of tradition, free to explore my own creative vision.

The Artisan Hound is founded on four main principles: Artistry, Bravery, Nature, and Philanthropy. These four elements are at the heart of everything I do, from creating breathtaking artwork for my clients, to volunteering my time and skills at my local rescue centre. They keep me grounded, feed my inspiration, and ensure that I never lose sight of my passion and creativity, and it’s my goal to instil these values in everything I create, and everyone I meet on my journey.

QUALIFYING AS A MASTER PHOTOGRAPHER

I need to start with a confession. When I first became a photographer, I told myself that I didn't need validation or approval from anybody, especially not an organisation or qualifying body. My time at university had left me feeling jaded, and I'd be damned if I was...

DISPLAYING YOUR ARTWORK IN YOUR HOME

For many of my clients, their biggest struggle is figuring out what to do with their photos after our session. There's a growing culture these days for saving photos onto a USB with the intention of working that part out later. Don't get me wrong, there are times when...
