Annemarie King: The Phodographer » Dog Portrait Photography in York and Yorkshire

Masthead header


365 days. They passed so quickly and yet so much has been achieved and learned and experienced. It’s been a really full and special year for The Phodographer. I’ve been through pocketfuls of sausage, tennis balls and biscuits. My washer has never seen so many muddy jeans! A new pair of wellies was necessary. Many friendships were made; with wonderful clients – human and hound, partners, charities and other folk in the world of dogs.

There sure was some muddy times, some really fun times – mornings filled with laughter and some sad afternoons spent with eyes full of tears. Some dogs I photographed didn’t live more than a few days after their photoshoots and others were beginning their little lives.

Every little soul I photographed was special. Each one so very special to their human companions, and also to me. I’ve been jumped on, I have carried others (love you Peggy). I have stroked soft fur and been nuzzled back. I’ve heard each dogs story. I’ve learned about favourite toys, favourite snacks, favourite spots in the sun and favourite tricks.

It’s been a blast! Thank you to every client for your business, for your friendship, for trusting me with your forever friend.

When I look through this collection of images it’s so clear to me that dogs live with hope, in the present. You can see it in their eyes. So I’ll try and keep that in mind as I go forward into a New Year with hope and an open heart.

Wishing all customers, friends, readers and fur babies a very Happy 2015 with fun times ahead. Annemarie x

best of 201416bWe partnered with The Black Swan hotel in Helmsley to offer a great dog friendly stay package including a session with The Phodographer. The above shows some doggy models in The Black Swan Hotel bar. This offer runs until the end of March 2015. Read more about this here.

The pictures below show Rose’s Gotcha Day. My friends Clea, Tom and I drove to Derbyshire to pick up Rose from her foster Mum Helen. I thought I’d document the very first meeting between Rose, Clea, Tom and their first fur kid, Cosmo. The last picture is Cos and Rose walking side by side. Firm friends.

best of 201416cFinally, I produced my very first calendar. The Greyhound Calendar was a mix of commissioned work and also some special shoots just for specific months.  A look inside the calendar and more about the process of producing my calendar here.

Should I do a calendar with a mix of different breeds next year? Let me know what you think in comments below.

    Anne-Marie Cockram - They are all so beautiful but I love the one of the 3 schnauzers with one yawning, so funny and the different heights of them look great! I also love the Christmassy greyhound ones near the end, the wreath-collar is so festive. Lovely pics Annemarie!ReplyCancel

    Jane Lund - You capture the beauty. strength and soulfulness of these amazing animals so well. The ones of Anna and her hound made me fill up – the love in those photos is palpable. The one of the little chihuahua next to the walking boots is so funny too, love it!ReplyCancel
