So what does a Photoshoot Session involve and how does it work?
Sessions can be either at your home and garden or out in the countryside – see the menus to the right for a few more bits and pieces about the right location for you.
Before the Shoot
The day before the shoot, we will check the weather forecast (especially if the session is entirely on location in the great outoors) and will telephone or text you to confirm the location and time.
The day of the Shoot
We arrive at the agreed location and meet you and your pet(s) there at the agreed time.
Once you arrive we will spend 5 or 10 minutes with you and your dog allowing them to get familiar with us and our cameras. Hopefully, you’ll have remembered to bring along a few doggy treats, a ball or two and perhaps their favourite toys.
Please don’t start giving them the treats as soon as you arrive, or they’ll probably get a bit complacent and wont always want to ‘perform’ for the camera.
Depending on how many dogs are in the shoot, we’ll try to do a mix of individual portrait and action shots and also ‘group’ shots. Even though this is a doggy shoot, we’re more than happy to do a portrait shot or two of you and the dog.
A session typically lasts about an hour if its only at your home and up to two if we’re on location somewhere. But this all depends on the personality and the obedience (or otherwise) of your pets.
Our goal is for you and your pets to have a great fun session.
After the Shoot
At the end of the shoot, we’ll arrange the viewing for typically the following week at our studio. Here you will be shown in glorious images all the gorgeous and fun shots we have captured during the shoot. You’ll be able to choose your favourites and have them printed by our professional laboratory to hang in pride of place in your home.
