HOW IT WORKS
DISPLAYING YOUR IMAGES
Where can my session take place?
The majority of my sessions take place at select locations within Northamptonshire. I’ve taken great care to choose a variety of locations where I know your dog will be comfortable and safe, and I’m confident that I can get the most out of the environment, giving you the best possible images. Sessions can take place further afield if you’re unable to make it to Northamptonshire – please note that there is a travel fee for sessions taking place outside a 20 mile radius of Northampton NN1.
When are sessions available?
Sessions are available at weekends, and on selected weekday evenings during spring and summer months. This means that session availability can be limited, but I will always make an effort to accommodate ill or elderly dogs where time is sensitive. I usually recommend booking your session several weeks in advance if you have a specific date in mind, especially during the spring and autumn months!
To get the best images possible and create an enjoyable experience for everyone, we may need to reschedule your session if the weather forecast is dark, dreary or wet.
Do you only photograph dogs?
In a nutshell – yes. I have years of experience working with dogs, understanding their behaviour and capturing every little quirk and detail – I know dogs, and I love everything about photographing them. I adore all things furry or four-legged, but I couldn’t claim to have the same level of knowledge or passion when it comes to equine or feline photography, for example. My specialism lies in canine portraiture, creating artwork that I’m truly passionate about in the confidence that the images you receive will be truly special.
What happens if it rains??
We all know how unpredictable British weather can be! My style of work is hugely dependent on good light and dry conditions, so if the weather is unfavourable on the day then I recommend rescheduling your session to another day that suits you.
Does my dog have to be well trained?
While basic commands, like ‘sit’ and ‘stay’, are beneficial, the aim is to capture the personality of your dog, so you’re much more likely to get great shots if we allow them to act naturally and not force them into any uncomfortable situations.
I would definitely recommend brushing up on your sit/stay commands in the days leading up to your session. If it’s still an issue, or your dog simply can’t be let off the lead, we can still work with them on lead and I will work on removing it during post-processing – you’d be surprised what a little bit of Photoshop wizardry can do!
