WELCOME TO THE ARTISAN HOUND

MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

Josie Northampton dog photographer

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. The shaggy fur. That cute little head tilt. The greying whiskers. The soulful eyes.

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 HEART BEHIND THE HOUND

The Artisan Hound is founded on three key principles: Artistry, Welfare, and Philanthropy. These three 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 creative journey.

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 (your dogs!). It’s about taking pride in my craft 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.
