Got a question? Here's our FAQ...

We will turn your images into beautiful pieces of wall art for you! After the session we will polish up your portraits. They will be presented to you at a private viewing in our studio while you enjoy a hot drink and some chocolates (yum!) Wall art is the finishing touch in any home, usually featuring unknown subjects, but just imagine that furry bundle you love so much being the star of your very own personalised piece of art! Our frames are among the finest in the industry, ranging from timeless traditional frames to sleek contemporary designs. At your viewing we will help you find the right style, colour and design to perfectly fit your home whatever your décor. From striking single impact frames with that one image that sings to you, making your heart flutter, to collections containing lots of images, we will tailor the design to your living space, no matter how big or small it may be.

We use specially selected pigment inks to emphasise the vibrant colours captured in our work, making your images really pop. Your artwork will be expertly printed onto high quality satin photo paper, which has archival properties of over 200 years, so your artwork will be as bright and colourful as the day it arrives for generations to come. We promise the wall art you choose will make you smile over and over again!

You are welcome to bring along photographs of your walls to help us make the perfect match. Most of our clients invest at least £800 on wall art pieces and find that planning their design preferences ahead of their viewing really helps them make the most of their appointment. Our experts will always be on hand at the viewing to help you create something special but the more you think about the possibilities beforehand the smoother your viewing process will be. Choosing the final wall art pieces is the majority of our client’s favourite part – though that could be something to do with the home made chocolates!

For the majority of sessions we do the dogs are kept on a lead – we simply remove the lead in photoshop afterwards. If your dog usually wears a harness, please also bring a collar and fixed lead, as we can photoshop a lead out of the images afterwards, whereas harness’ are not usually possible to remove.

Even if your dog is a wiggle bum with little regard for sit & stay commands, we have plenty of tricks to coax them into position and then grab their attention. They only need to be in position for a split second for us to get the perfect shot!

Our sessions take place on location, somewhere spectacular be it rural or urban. We have plenty of creative ideas in mind and usually suggest the location based on the look you love most, but if you have somewhere special in mind we’re all ears!

Our sessions are crafted to make your pooch appear as a seasoned pro at modelling, though in reality it’s usually organised chaos behind the scenes! You can get involved in the session by holding your dog on their lead or wafting a treat above the camera. You might even get chance to play second assistant for the day by holding our light for a couple of shots!

All of them! Many dog photographers will charge extra per dog but we actively encourage that you to bring your whole pack at no extra cost because we believe dogos are an important part of the family. Even if it takes some Photoshop trickery to get the group shot, rest assured, we will capture it for you.

Absolutely! Photographing a black dog is all about understanding the available light you are working with and lighting the shot accordingly. We have every confidence we can get the best out of your pooch whatever their colouring.  Just take a look at the black dogs that we have in the ‘Our Work’ section of the website.

Sure! Dogs are a big part of the family and you are the most important part of your dog’s life, so while our sessions are dog-centric you or your family are welcome to jump in some of the pictures if you wish. Drop us a line if you’d like tailored advice about coordinating your outfits for the photos.

After the shoot, we take the images away and polish them up to produce a slideshow of the very best photos from your session. These images will be 80% of the way there – an extra touch of magic is added afterwards for all those going to print.

You will be invited to our cosy studio in Preston where you get to chill out on our comfy sofa and watch a slide show of your images.  We’ll share a hot drink and some choccies while he show evokes those memories created at your session. During your viewing, we will go through all the wall art options available and design a piece that is perfect for your home.

Head over to our shop and bag your session now.

  1. This is a hands-on experience! You will have the opportunity to be actively involved in your session, such as holding your fur-kid in prime position on their lead or balancing the flash on Cat’s head! (Yup, that happens!)
  2. You/your family may want to be in some of the pictures so be sure to wear your favourite clothes and if you can, coordinate your outfits.
  3. Feel free to exercise your dogo before the session *but* if you do make sure it’s a several hours before the session start time rather (avoid walks right before the session!) so they have time to regain that boundless spark that makes them so special to you!
  4. Bring a selection of toys, treats or accessories that will inspire your dog’s attention and bring our their whimsy.
  5. If your dog usually wears a harness, bring a collar and fixed lead as well. We can easily edit out the lead from the final images, but harness’ are usually a little trickier.
  6. Ahead of your design appointment, we recommend that you measure up wall space and consider where your artwork might go.
  7. Have a look through our portfolio or on our social media ahead of the session and send us the photos you like. We will take this into consideration when recommending a location and when creating your dog’s portraits to make sure the end result is tailored to what you love most!

We specialise in photographing our canine companions but are happy to work with other animals for special commissions.

We are equipped to shoot in all sorts of weather conditions – so long as you and your dog are happy! The best advice is to come prepared for all eventualities. If it’s wet, you may want to bring an umbrella, wellies or even a towel for your dog and if it’s hot, make sure you bring plenty of water to cool your dog off. Every season and weather condition adds a different dynamic to your portraits – making it a truly unique experience. However, if the weather isn’t playing ball we can of course reschedule.

To rearrange a booking, just call our studio on 01772 920211. There is an automated charge of £25 for cancellations or amendments outside of our 10-day policy.
