DISTINCTIVE PHOTOGRAPHY for DISCERNING DOG LOVERS
and their one-of-a-kind canine counterparts
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.
