WELCOME TO THE ARTISAN HOUND
MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
Hi, I’m Josie – self-confessed geek, major movie buff, Disney aficionado, and tireless crusader against unruly hair. When I’m not behind a camera, you’ll likely find me cosied up on the sofa watching Netflix, or nose-deep in a new creative project.
It’s always been my mission to pursue a life in the arts, to capture and create something beautiful. As a dog photographer, I get to do just that. 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 – aesthetics, inspiration, and beauty.
That’s why I founded The Artisan Hound. To create distinctive portraiture for discerning dog lovers and their one-of-a-kind canine counterparts.
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 products and my clients. It’s about taking pride in my work and dedicating myself to producing something of real value for my community.
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.
