Dog Photography


As an owner of dogs myself, along with the work I have carried out with dogs on a daily basis for many years now - I have spent a lot of time either photographing them, or thinking of new ways to photograph them. Over the years, I have handled and photographed most dog personality types, ranging from the golden oldies to the shy nervous types, playful puppies and the bouncy energetic pooches. All this experience gives me a lot of knowledge about how to get the very best from the dogs.​

If you need some convincing, then it may help to know that absolutely no photos on this website are from third party sources, instead they are ALL the culmination of many years practising and refining both my methods and my equipment.

The woods, fields and valleys of the beautiful Surrey Hills area of outstanding natural beauty are my studio and I'm sure you will agree it's a worthy backdrop to any outdoors loving dog.

I can use all this experience to give you, your family and pet something special in the form of a dedicated photography session separately or as part of my services.

How it works:

  • I take many photographs in different poses and situations during a photo shoot, then select and enhance the best ten or more unique images to present to you.

  • The photographs will be placed into your personal, private online gallery.

  • You then choose which picture/s you would like to get professionally printed or downloaded.

  • All session packages include one 6x8 inch print of your choice, full-resolution digital download or alternatives to the same value.

  • You can order additional prints or downloads online from your personal online gallery at any time.

  • Pictures will be edited and enhanced to present your dog at his/her finest. 

  • Draw on my knowledge of the very best and most scenic places within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

  • Up to two dogs per shoot, please enquire if you wish to include more dogs.

Rest Assured

I’m sure you’ll agree that the most important thing during any photo shoot is the safety and happiness of your beloved pup. This means I will never put any dog in a situation that could be unpleasant or harmful to them. I want to create happy and special memories where their real personalities can shine through, and that you can hold onto and treasure forever.

Part of being a successful dog photographer is having the ability to remain patient, friendly and fun, and anticipating what dogs are going to do. I have photographed many dogs, all of which have had different personalities and demeanour's. It's just a case of finding their motivation, being patient, having a sense of humour and letting them be themselves. I work on a dog by dog basis, so we will have a chat beforehand to figure out how to get the best from your pawsome pal!
