A Recovery Assistance Dog

A Recovery Assistance Dog called Boris!

Recovery Assistance dog

Being a recovery assistance dog is not an easy thing to achieve.  We recently welcomed Boris back to our studio to celebrate his recent new status of A Recovery Assistance Dog.  Dawn his owner wanted to bring him to our studio to get some great photographs of him in his very smart new jacket.  Being an assistance dog enables Boris to go into cafes and supermarkets, as he is officially a working dog.

It takes an intensive amount of training to be able to get this accolade, and Boris certainly never fails to pose in the studio in the two times he has come to see us.

Thank you for bringing him for his second portrait sitting.  Our Fine Art Dog Portraits have often been described as paintings, and for us there is no better compliment.  They are all photographs, and created in camera rather than heavy photoshop work, and both Jenny and I feel very proud to be able to photograph your gorgeous canine chums in our specialist dog photography studio.

Do you have a dog that you would like to have photographed?  Jenny and I have alot of experience in photographing dogs, we’ve made it our speciality!  it takes a certain skill and personality to achieve the results that we do, and we both love it!  They say: never work with children or animals, and in fact we have spent our whole careers working with both.

Do you have more than one dog?  We love getting group shots – check out our Pawtfolio to see the results!

Labradoodles are such a popular cross breed at the moment, and its so easy to see why!  With the non hair shedding properties of a poodle, and the ‘we aim to please’ lovability of a labrador, it makes a superb  mix!

We have just purchased a range of new props for our dog photography studio which we tried out in this session, and are always on the lookout for more objects (trust me, I have a fairly lengthy list in my mind!).

We decided to roll out the typewriter, as the gorgeous Milly seemed happy to be in the studio.  This was a one shot moment (remember Bailey and the christmas hat!), three or four attempts, and just this one perfect one.  That’s how it works.  We don’t ask the dogs to ‘perform’, but more make a game of the set so that they go exploring.

If you think your dog won’t pose, why not try us out!  With nearly 70 clients to date, we have not failed yet.  (Yes I know what I just tempted fate there – sorry Jenny!) Touches wood madly!

Black dogs are notoriously hard to photograph!  How many times have you ended up with a black blob, with no detail or even worse no visible eyes!  Let us take the strain and create gorgeous works of art with a Fine Art Dog Portrait, let us give you some labradoodle love!

If you like these, check out the images in our gallery.  We have photographed many dogs, big and small in our specially tailored photography studio just for your canaine friend.  If you would like your dog to have a Fine Art photography portrait of their own, then like Milly the labradoodle love, why not get in touch to find out more or book a session with us.  It really is a lot of fun!


Tilly the Terrier Cross

Tilly

Look how gorgeous Tilly is at 7 years old!  Expressive faces are just the best, and Tilly the terrier has character in abundance.  Her owner said one of her recognisable characteristics is one ear up, one ear down, so we knew we had a winning shot with this one!  It’s her inquisitive face.

We get so many dog personalities coming through the studio, and it’s usually the smaller dogs that have more of it.  We hope you’ll agree that Tilly the Terrier portraits are adorable.  If you have a terrier of your own that you would like to bring in for a Doggy photoshoot, then please get in touch!

A golden cockapoo puppy!

We had the great pleasure of welcoming Maggie into the studio at the end of last year.  She is a gorgeous Golden Cockapoo, with just the cutest eyes I am sure you will agree!

Cockapoos have become hugely popular in recent years partly due to the combination of an outgoing, very loving personality of a Cocker spaniel with the low-shedding qualities that a poodle has.  Perfect for those who are sensitive to pet hairs!

As you can see she was happy to play and pose perfectly in the studio – we always make sure our clients are happy and comfortable at all times, after all, if you are working with animals, to get the best from them you must treat them so gently!
