  • WELCOME!

    From their funny little expressions to that sticky up bit of fur on their ears, we’ll capture everything you love about your pet. And we’ll make some ‘muddy good memories’ along the way. Pawsome!

    We think that fun times out with your dog – ambling along a country path or hiking a woodland trail are the perfect times to make beautiful fine art photographs that will capture everything about your pet forever.

    Our commercial pet photography includes both UK wide-location and studio shoots. We also offer a full ‘model find’ and casting service to find you the perfect furry face. We’re over the moon to have been awarded Yorkshire Environmental Portrait Photographer of the Year.

The heather was so beautiful the day that Olive came up to York for her pet portrait session. She really is the prettiest whippet and I thought the pink of the heather would complement her grey fur beautifully. The picture on the top left is Olive with her mum’s legs. Faye wanted to be on the picture but in an abstract sort of way. The picture on the right is one of my favourite pictures since I launched The Photographer back in 2012, and has appeared in my annual pointy dog calendar and is one of my greetings cards which I have in my online shop.

Lovely Olive. I do hope to photograph her again one of these sunny summer days : )

SO happy to share this shoot today. Rosie Sky and Wizz were so well behaved on their shoot, they did everything their mum asked – and that hardly ever happens on a Phodographer shoot! Wiz is a bit of a dog agility star and was just about to head off to compete at Crufts. She’s co clever : )

I just loved capturing these three and all their  different expressions.

I hadn’t! I knew I was meeting a lady in the woodland car park to photograph her puli but I was not expecting this gorgeous girl to jump out of the car boot. All her hair was down and I couldn’t see which was the front and which was the back!! I was so taken by her lovely dreadlock fur. We held it back with a little hair tie for some of the pictures but just look at her in motion – a lovely ball of joyful movement : )

One of my favourite shoots ever. I met Gill, their mum at a country show in Yorkshire and, when I saw she had a labrador in each colour, ran over and said “you must let me photograph your dogs, they’re gorgeous!!” Not the smoothest sales patter, but it was from the heart and just popped out of my mouth! Ha!

We had the most fun woodland walk photographing them together and separately, when suddenly we heard a SPLOSH! Gill and I looked at each other in horror – one of them had found the muddy pool of water hidden by trees. Before we could take action, two more SPLOSHES followed as all three enjoyed the water. Gill and I could only laugh and luckily we had some shots already in the bag.

When they got out, I shot this picture of the three – dripping wet, a little muddy and very happy with themselves. It turned out to be Gill’s favourite image and I made a wall portrait for her home. After all she told me, this is what they look like quite a lot of the time!

I just had to share one of my all time favourite shoots on  the blog today. This is Holly and her mum and dad came to me through a special package I was running with The Black Swan hotel at Helmsley. We decided to use nearby Duncombe Park as the place to take our dog portrait session and it was fantastic, full of little nooks and crannies and beautiful old doors like this one.

The Black Swan are running the offer for a dog friendly Yorkshire hotel break and a dog photography session at the time of writing, check it out here
