I may in fact have met many of the Portishead dog owners as I am regularly dragged around the naturereserve by my faithful hound.
They are not my first and I am sure that many of you - like myself - can remember all of their predecessors - their names the foibles but above all the love and affection that they regularly dish out. How fitting then that we offer all dog owners the opportunity to have some fantastic photographs of their " best friend" and whilst we are happy to take photographs purely in the studio , it is also great fun to pop out and to capture their free spirits as they chase their balls, wrestle with a big stick and generally have fun getting up to mischief.
We offer a studio shoot with specialist lighting and staging , a location shoot which can be of your choosing or somewhere we suggest or - and this is the most popular option - a mixture of the 2. In our gallery of dog photographs you can judge for yourself - which appeal to you.
Our sessions are charged out at £40 a time and this entitles you to the full shoot with the opportunity to view them a few days later and to choose your favourites. We include a framed 7 inch by 5 inch framed photograph of your choice within the price.
£10 from each of the shoots will be donated to Claws and Paws Animal Rescuers to support them in fostering and rehoming abandoned dogs and cats .

Whilst the studio is all about family photography , Chris - the owner has been a wildlife photographer for over 30 years We are able to provide prints , canvases, acrylics - in fact most wall pieces - but also mini books.
Can you photograph more than 1 dog?
If you would like more than 2 dogs photographed there is an additional £15 payable so that we can allocate some additional time to your photoshoot.
When do the photo shoots take place ?
We will always work towards finding a date and time suitable for everyone. As a rule of thumb location shoots in the summer are before 11am or after 4pm . whilst in the winter months we suggest between 11 am and 2 pm. studio times are more flexible.
