FINE ART 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 was always my mission to pursue a life in the arts, and now I’m doing just that as a fine art photographer. 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 – aesthetic, inspiration, and beauty.
The Artisan Hound offers an exclusive canine portraiture service in and around Northamptonshire, with a desire to create imagery that’s as beautiful and expressive as its canine subjects. Art for aesthetic, not agenda.
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.

As somebody who doesn't own a dog, I often find myself faced with questions like 'so, what's your favourite breed?' and 'when you do get a dog, what do you think you'll go for?'. For the longest time I couldn't answer. I've never had a dog, yet I'm lucky enough to...read more
I'm a huge believer that inspiration can be found anywhere. Just because I'm a photographer, doesn't mean that I only seek out dog photography for inspiration and ideas. We can learn valuable lessons from studying art outside our own niches, which in turn can inspire...read more
