Dog Photoshoot Details

What's Included?

A pre-shoot consultation. 

Once you've decided that I'm the dog photographer in Cheshire who can fulfil your needs, the first step is a consultation.  This can be in-person, or over the phone, or even via Zoom or similar. We'll discuss finer details of what will happen on the day, and talk about  things like preparing your dog.  Most importantly, we'll discuss exactly what you want from the shoot - the sort of images you'd like to be able to choose from.  If you're not sure, or if you have absolutely no idea, don't worry - I can help you with plenty of ideas and suggestions.

A pre-shoot welcome pack. 

I'll send you a detailed Welcome Pack once we've confirmed the booking. This has lots of tips and inspirational ideas about styling and preparation, for both you and your dog!  It answers the commonest questions that I get asked, just in case they didn't occur to you during the consultation.

Creative Portrait Experience

A fun and enjoyable dog photography creative shoot, at a location that you choose.  This can either be at home, a local walking route, a beach or any other location that appeals to you.  (Please be aware that some locations, such as National Trust properties, might have restrictions on professional photography, so using those venues would be subject to confirmation). 

For the Bronze and Silver packages, a session will typically last for 1-2 hours.  It depends on the dog, mostly, and the location - dogs are very good at letting it be known when they've had enough!  I won't overwork a dog simply to get more shots, and there will be plenty of rest periods during this time.

For the Gold package, there is no set time limit.  I will stay for as long as we all feel that there are more potential photographs to be taken, and as long as your dog is comfortable.  There will be plenty of extended rest breaks for the dog (and for you!), and it may be that you have more than one dog and want to take advantage of my time with each one.

Private Ordering Session


An in-person, private viewing and ordering session is one where  I will visit you and show you a preliminary selection of stunning images of your shoot in the comfort of your own home. 

From these, you can make any additional purchases.   You're welcome to invite your friends and family along too. 

At this session there will be no hard-sell, and absolutely no obligation to buy any additional products beyond what is already included in your chosen price package.  I'm very confident, though, that you will love your images so much  that you will want to do so. I will then help you to design and create anything from framed prints to albums, keeping your budget in mind, so that you are totally happy with the results. 

Doing this at your home means you will easily be able to visualise how things will look on a particular wall or other location.  

Depending on distance, it may not always be practical for me to return for an in-person viewing, although I always try to do so.  If that is the case, I will prepare a private gallery on my website for you to study at your leisure.

Simple Pricing


Whichever price package you choose, the pricing is nice and simple.

No complex options;  it's all very straightforward so you know where you stand from the moment you make the booking (at which point a 50% non-refundable shoot fee will be taken).

Additional artwork prices start from £290, and on average my clients invest upwards of £800 on the portraits I produce. 

More product prices are shown on the Product Pricing menu on this website.

Travel costs to your location are free within a 50 mile radius of Northwich, Cheshire.  After that, travel may be charged at 40p per mile.


Weather


There's not much any of us can do about the weather.  Don't worry, though - if the weather is too bad, we'll simply postpone for a later date.  There's no additional charge.
