Do you think of your pet as an intrinsic part of your family?  Why not commission a high quality portrait of them to sit alongside the rest of the family in your photo album or on the mantelpiece?  A beautiful photograph of your pampered pet can be a great talking point and a wonderful memory in years to come.

As a pet owner myself I love the challenge of capturing the unique characteristics of any animal, big or small.  I specialise in pet portraits taken on familiar ground, where your pet will be at their most relaxed, be that on the sofa at home, in your garden or during an energetic jaunt around the local park or along the beach. 

I am happy to photograph any pet, large or small, from reptiles and small mammals to cats, dogs and horses.  The montage below shows a selection of my pet photography work but for a larger selection please visit the pets section of my Portfolio page here.

My pet portrait service includes the following for a flat rate of £75: 

  • An introductory consultation in person or over the telephone

  • A photo session of at least one hour in a location agreed during this consultation.  If a longer session is required to allow your pet time to feel at ease with me then that will be included in the price I charge.  The photo session could take place in your own home/garden or another location where your pet is comfortable.  The safety and wellbeing of your pet is paramount and the results will always be most successful when he or she is feeling relaxed.  If appropriate, the photo session could cover two locations.  For example, for dogs it could include a period of relaxation at home followed by a run in the park or on the beach.

  • All basic photo editing and enhancement.  Images can be offered in colour and/or black and white at your choice

  • The session price includes the provision of two 10x8 inch prints of your favourite images from the day.  Further prints or framed/canvas prints can be ordered at an additional cost.

  • A selection of images will also be provided in JPG format, via the internet or on DVD at your choice.  These can be used as computer wallpapers, shared with friends and family or printed by yourself.

  • I am based in Elsenham, Essex, very close to the M11 and M25.  From here I am happy to travel up to sixty minutes to your choice of location.
