How it works


merlinThe shoot

Based in Poole, but covering all parts of Dorset and Hampshire (and beyond!), I will visit your home on a pre-arranged day for your photo session.  Horses and cats will be shot in situ, but with dogs it is always preferable to go "on location".  The choice of location is entirely up to you; be it your usual haunt, a favourite spot perhaps, or the place you imagine you dog to be at its happiest.  A typical shoot will last between 2-3 hours, and I believe a relaxed, unhurried approach achieves the best results, getting the most from your animal.  I will cater to all kinds of personalities.  With my love of animals and vast experience, I can work with creatures of all temperaments.

The price of a shoot is £70.  This includes the sitting fee (over two hours of a professional photographer's time and expertise) and travel expenses (up to 30 miles).  This price is valid for up to two pets.  Additional pets will be subject to a £30 charge per animal.  This is reflective of the extra time taken on the shoot itself, as well as the extra editing and processing time.

A full product list with prices will be made available to you when you book, and the full range of product options will be shown and explained to you at the time of your shoot.

After the shoot, you will be presented with a selection of  images in your own private online gallery, accessible through this site, in the client area.  Your private gallery will be on line for a period of three weeks.  It will be available only to you (and anyone else who you wish to pass on the login info to).  

Galleries will contain from 20-40 processed images.  The quantity is dependent on the number of your pets.  I aim for a wide variety of poses and locations in my sessions, guaranteeing you a varied choice. 

All images will then be available to order in a range of print sizes, as well as on canvases, in personalised books, or as a calendar. A bespoke framing service is also available.  When you have made your decisions about what you want to order, or if you require any advice or opinion, just get in touch, and we can sort through it together. I always aim to be flexible. 

Other Information

I travel to London with Forest Pet Photography on a fairly regular basis.  Anybody in London should get in touch and I'll let you know when my next trip to the capital is scheduled for.

London shoots may be subject to additional costs - get in touch, and we can discuss your individual situation.

For Londoners and others a little further afield, another option is to travel to me.  I live within striking distance of beaches, forest, rivers, heath.... you name it, we have it here.  Bring Fido down and we can choose a location together that will suit your dog perfectly.

If you would like to see my range of products and prices, just get in touch, and I will send you an up to date list.

Forest Pet Photography's specialised service really is the only choice for pet photography in the South of England.
