Making a Booking
If you would like to book a studio session with You and the Dog, please do get in touch for information on packages offered. Prices start from £180. Gift vouchers are also available and make a wonderful, lasting present.
On the day
Dogs don’t always behave exactly as we’d hope (!), and for some, being in the studio with flashing lights can make them a little nervous. We’ll always start by letting them wander around and get use to the new smells, sights and sounds until we know they are comfortable and ready to be photographed - if they have a widdle, that’s fine - it happens! If you know your dog is especially nervous, or particularly boisterous around strangers then please do let me know, and let me know if your dog has any likes/dislikes/quirks.
It isn't essential for your dog to be groomed before the day, but they might prefer to be looking their best. Make sure the eyes are free from too much hair, so we can ideally see them - unless of course this is a characteristic of the breed and you prefer it this way.
Wear what you feel comfortable in - humans can be even more camera shy than dogs, so make sure you like what you are wearing, are happy to be photographed in it, and most of all that you feel good!
I shoot from a shared studio based in Kennington, London SE11 - one stop on the Northern line from Waterloo. Shoot days are subject to availability. A 50% deposit is required at the time of booking and the remainder paid three days prior to the shoot. Payment via Paypal or direct bank transfer
If you are unable to make the shoot, then as long as you let me know at least 72 hours ahead of the booking time, I can re-schedule for you. I am unable to refund deposits where less than 3 days notice is given.
I really try to avoid any hidden costs, and want the session to be enjoyable for both you and your dog. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me
Receiving your images
You will receive an online gallery link with a selection of lightly edited images to view within 3-4 days of your shoot. Your chosen files will be available for high resolution download.
I usually allow up to 2 weeks for any ordered prints to be sent to you via Royal Mail. I generally avoid heavy retouching as do want your images to be a natural as possible.
All prints are handled by a leading professional photographic lab using Fuji crystal photographic paper, with a choice of gloss or matt finish. I’m very happy to arrange for additional prints and to discuss options on framing (I’m always happy to advise on relevant off the shelf frames as well as professional framing). These are available in a variety of sizes and would be at an additional cost.
Please note I cannot guarantee the quality and finish of any products you choose to print yourself or have printed from a high street printing service.
