Personal Commissions - The 'How to' step by step Guide

Step One

Decide whether you would like a Studio setting or would you prefer to take advantage of an outdoor setting. OR if you would like to have the best of both worlds and split your photo session between the two with the flagship experience(normally two separate days)?

The choice is entirely yours, but please be aware that if you book an outdoor shoot that sometimes nature has other ideas – in which case we will have to re arrange your outdoor shoot for a more suitable day.

Step Two

Contact me using the contact field at the bottom of this page. Tell us a bit about your Dog/s i.e. Name, breed, age and gender. If you would prefer a Studio, Outdoor shoot or the flagship experience. Give an indication of the timescale you are looking for. Fill in your details as required. I will reply within 24 hours of receiving your request.

 

Worried or anxious dogs.

If you feel that your dog is “unphotographable” or “too nervous around humans” then don’t worry I really do have loads of patience and we can arrange for a free consultation at your home or in a park where ever they feel comfortable.

The session fee includes my time, expertise and skill of knowing how to get the very best from them, in a fun and relaxed manner.

​The price also includes my talent as a digital artist and the digital Retouching of the final images.

I will spend time getting to know your canine companion and gaining their trust.

​I am told “ I must have to have loads of patience to do what I do”. To be honest there is nothing better than spending time getting to know and photograph a dog.

Viewing Your Images

This includes a helping hand through the product ordering stage of the experience which is in the comfort of your own home, and in most cases these can be shown on your very own telly.

But don’t worry, like most people I hate the “high pressure sell” that normally comes after a shoot when your are shown into a “cinema style” room.

Instead you will be able to preview your images in the comfort of your own surroundings. and from there you will be given a set of what we used to call “contact sheets” a set of small images with file names for you to choose from.
