WELCOME TO THE ARTISAN HOUND
MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
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 details for granted. The shaggy fur. That cute little head tilt. The greying whiskers. The soulful eyes.
My goal is to capture those details, giving you the chance to embrace and enjoy 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 a bespoke canine portraiture service 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 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.
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 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.
