Dog Photo Sessions
I offer one-to-one dog photo sessions, at a location of your choice, providing you with lovely, natural pictures of your prized pooch. Until the end of the year, the cost is just £45 (for one dog) for an hour’s session. Anyone booking a session as a Christmas gift, will receive a voucher which is valid for 12 months.

Not all my dog photography sessions end with the dog falling in a fountain but this is what happened to Bobby, an eight month old Westie/Bichon Frise X. We were nearing the end of a session at Dunorlan Park with Bobby posing on one of the plinths by the fountain, when he decided to get a closer look. In a water nympth-like jesture, Bobby sort of just plopped into the water but was quickly grabbed upon by the owner before the weeds could get hold of him. Poor, young Bobby took on the apperance of a drowned rat while three grown adults couldn’t stop laughing. Still, no damage done and we now know that Bobby can swim.
Yesterday, I photographed a doggy TV star! Yes, this is THE Lucky the Chihuahua, as seen on ITV2s Top Dog Model program. Lucky made it all the way to the final three but was sadly runner-up to the overall winner Simba the Leonberger.
I first met Lucky at Discover Dogs last year; on that occasion I got a quick snap and blogged it (Discover Dogs blog post) along with lots of others. Lucky’s owner Isa, saw the post and liked The Dog Snapper Facebook page and has been liking the pictures I put up there ever since. In fact, the cover picture on Lucky’s Facebook page is the one I took at Discover Dogs. (I can also see that Lucky’s got double the amount of FB likes compared to me, but then again, he is a TV star).
Anyway, Isa got in touch as she needs some pics for a piece that Dogs Today magazine are going to run. They suggested supplying some of her own iPhone pics for the article, but wanting to see her dog looking his best, she thought she’d get in touch to get a dog photo session done. Great idea and he was fantastic to photograph in the Autumn light. So here he is, in lots of lovely warm light, autumnal colours and the odd silhouette thrown in for good measure. I’ll put the rest up on my Facebook page soon.
On Monday’s dog photo session for Percy and Oreo, the two Hamiltonstovare, they were joined by many other dogs that were using the dog walking area on the corner of Forest Road and Farmcombe Road in Tunbridge Wells.
Most notably there was Duke, a handsome six month old Pointer, who took a particular liking to Percy.
Percy and Oreo’s dog photo shoot will feature here shortly.

Stuck for an idea for a Christmas present?
I’m now offering dog photography sessions. These are different to the blogged pictures, as these are shot very quickly while I’m out and about.
Now you can have a one to one session at a location of your choice and you’ll receive a slideshow to choose from and the first print up to 10×8″ is included in the price.
Session price from £45 – click here for more details.
Don’t worry, I do photograph non-flying dogs as well!
