DISTINCTIVE PHOTOGRAPHY for DISCERNING DOG LOVERS

and your one-of-a-kind canine counterparts

Dog photographer Josie Baughan

Hi there, I’m Josie – self-confessed geek, Disney aficionado and tireless crusader against unruly hair. I’m also the face behind The Artisan Hound and, just like you, I love dogs!

There’s something truly remarkable about dogs, right? Something expressive, distinctive and entirely unique. But we see them every day, and it can be 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 promise to create imagery that’s as beautiful and expressive as its canine subjects.

THE HEART BEHIND THE HOUND

ARTISTRY

PORTRAITURE REDEFINED

 

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.

WELFARE

YOUR DOG COMES FIRST

 

Understanding canine behaviour and welfare is something I’m truly passionate about. I know how to get the best out of your dog during our session, making sure they stay safe and comfortable at all times. No stressful situations or unnatural poses – just your dog doing what they do best! Find out more about how I keep your dog safe in my Canine Wellbeing Policy.

PHILANTHROPY

SUPPORTING ANIMALS IN NEED

 

Volunteering at my local animal shelter is how I discovered dog photography, so it’s always been my mission to support animal charities wherever I can. From shooting adoption photos for shelter dogs, to fundraising and supporting at local events, you’ll never find me far from the causes that inspired and helped me to become the person and photographer that I am today.

We had such a wonderful experience with Josie. I was worried that my dog wouldn’t be well-behaved enough for the session but Josie was so laid-back and natural with him which meant she snapped the most amazing photos. I would highly recommend to any pet owners who are looking to get professional photos of their animals!

I looked at a lot of photographers but Josie really stood out for me. I loved that we got to know a little about her but most importantly the photos were what sold it. The whole experience from start to finish was seamless. Josie was fantastic at explaining what would happen and was fabulous with our Millie. She’s extremely friendly which made us all relax on the day of the photo session and capture some lovely moments.

Josie has to be one of the most talented, reliable and awesome photographers there could possibly be! Her eye for detail and finding the right light for the shot was exceptional and above all, she was very caring about Elvis’ needs. We came away from our session feeling over the moon & even more so after seeing the absolutely breathtaking photographs she took.

LEAD OR NO LEAD?

LEAD OR NO LEAD?

If you've ever visited my portfolio, or flicked through a few of my journal entries, you might be left wondering how all of these dogs are so well trained and able to be allowed off-lead! You might even be feeling a bit disheartened, thinking "there's no way my dog...

PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: KEEPSAKE PRINT BOX

As much as I love big beautiful framed artwork, not everybody has the space for a 30″x20″ portrait on their living room wall! Bigger isn't always better - in fact, a smaller alternative can often be just as impactful, in the right space. No matter what size you...

UNDERSTANDING YOUR SUBJECT: ‘SPEAKING DOG’

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...
