DISTINCTIVE PHOTOGRAPHY for DISCERNING DOG LOVERS
and their one-of-a-kind canine counterparts
Hi there, I’m Josie – self-confessed geek, Disney aficionado and tireless crusader against unruly hair. I’m also the founder and photographer behind The Artisan Hound!
For me, dogs are the perfect subject – expressive, distinctive and entirely unique. We see our dogs every day, so it’s easy to take the little things for granted. My goal is to capture those details, embracing everything that makes your dog special. And together, we’ll create stunning artwork for you to treasure – whether that’s a larger-than-life portrait hanging in your living room, or a carefully curated album for your coffee table.
The Artisan Hound offers award-winning dog photography services 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
The Artisan Hound is founded on three principles: Artistry, Welfare, and Philanthropy. These are at the heart of everything I do – they keep me grounded, feed my inspiration, and ensure that I never lose sight of my passion and creativity. It’s my goal to instil these values in everything I create, and inspire everyone I meet on my creative journey.
My work is so much more than just taking photos. My aim is to create unique, statement artwork that goes beyond what you’d typically expect from pet photography, giving you that extra something special. And there’s nothing more exciting than seeing those images brought to life as breath-taking, tangible artwork that you can proudly display and enjoy in your home.

EXPLORING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN DOGS & ART
I was recently asked by the Master Photographers Association to write an article for their magazine around the importance of understanding dogs, as a photographer. This is a subject that's very close to my heart, and something I could waffle on about for hours, so...
I’ve been itching to write this post for months. I don’t typically write content for other photographers, but since they make up a large part of my following, there’s a chance that this might actually be worthwhile. I’ll do my best to avoid this turning into a rant....
Is your dog an urban explorer, or a woodland wanderer? Maybe they're more of a beach bum? When it comes to choosing a location for your session, you want your dog to feel as comfortable as possible so that they can be themselves and have a great time. That way I can...
