"We first met Ian at the Dog Lovers Festival with my anxious pup, Ambrosius. A fantastic find! We have just been to our third photo session and I think Ambrosius is finally warming to Ian, who seems to really capture the photogenic side of this pup. We cannot recommend Ian enough. He is amazing! We will definitely be back!"
"A very friendly experience my puppy loved it too. Everyone knew just how to get an amazing picture out of my little wriggle bum lol. Would definitely recommend and use again. Thank you"

"We decided in December to have portraits done of our Springer Spaniel doglet, Macie & her hoomans... we were put in touch with Ian Richardson photography, we were not disappointed. From the consultation to the finished prints we were absolutely delighted with the relaxed way everything went, Ian is certainly the man to go to for anything you want photographed professionally. Many Thanks Ian for all you did. It’s my horse to be photographed next when hopefully the weather gets better. Regards Sue, Dave & Macie. Xx"

Tiffany Ann Wills,
"Ian is an incredible photographer. I love looking at his photos on his site and really loved the pictures he took of my children and me. He came to our house with everything he needed including some great back drops, which was good because we couldn't go out for photos because of the weather. Ian was great with my daughter, who is usually very cautious around adults and new people and hides away. All three of my children really enjoyed having the pictures taken, as well as finding out all about the equipment and photography! We have some beautiful pictures now as well as fun memories of the day they were taken!"
"I had a great photo taken by Ian of my dog at the dog festival this year. He was very friendly and very patient as my dog was a little nervous at the start. I mentioned to Ian while he was taking the photo’s I struggle to see her eyes with her being black. He said he would definitely make sure I could see them. And as you can see in the picture below he did. I would highly recommend this guy and I’ll definitely be having another shoot with him. "
"Ian is extremely professional and friendly! We have watched him work and used him for our business website launch and couldn't have asked for anyone better! Ian had the patience of a saint with our naughty dogs and helped us out with ideas! FANTASTIC QUALITY FOR GREAT VALUE!"
Francesca Hotchkiss, The Naughty Dog Company
"Ian does the most amazing photos! He’s so kind, caring and patient, will definitely be having my other dog photographed in the near future x"
"Ian is so professional, friendly and patient, putting all in attendance at each sitting at ease. He volunteers his services by visiting our dog rescue centre (Just For Dogs) on a regular basis to take photos of our homeless dogs. We are in no doubt that his commitment to our cause and the amazing photos he takes of the dogs, greatly increases their chances of finding wonderful, forever homes. Thank you Ian!xx"
"Very professional, lovely photo's with very affordable price. Definitely worth it."
"My 5 year old son absolutely loved his Super Hero photo shoot! Ian was super patient and very creative. The results are very special. Thanks Ian!"
"Ian came to my home and did a photo shoot of my 14 week old puppy, he was very professional, very patient and was very efficient! I was over the moon with the photos he’d produced. The back drops he used were perfect! Highly recommend!! "
"He managed the near impossible,my 3 dogs sitting together and looking at the camera. I really didn't think it could be done but he knows just how to get their attention and make them feel at ease."
