    Frequent Questions from Clients

    Many dogs are naturally fine with the camera and flash but sometimes some are nervous with being photographed! This is not a problem if they are restless, as my camera is capable of capturing a moment at a fast shutter speed. There are other techniques that would help to get the best out of them. If there an issue or something we should know please tell me. We would spend extra time to get the right photograph if necessary.

    The safety of the public, our clients and dogs come first. Most of our shots are done on a leash and we simply airbrush them out in Photoshop (no charge). It is easier to control a dog in front of lens. We very rarely let dogs off the leash if their owners are 110% confident in recalling the dog in any situations. In certain places like urban areas it is a must to keep dogs on a leash even with best well behaved dogs. We use show leads for portrait shots and a very long line for action shots.

    Sometimes clients know exactly what they want or they are overwhelmed with choices. Yes, we are there to help you to make an informed decision on choosing the right images and presentation. One tip is to decide where your wall art should go and measure up. This will put you in the right directions.

    Yes, normally this is done in the LifeStyle session but can be done under the Portait Session. This would mean we only photograph you and the dog. We want to focus in getting the right picture in the limited time scale.

    Simply fill out the session inquiry form. Sessions are often booked a few weeks in advance. However, sessions for the Spring, Summer and Autumn get snapped quickly so you are advised to book early with the reservation fee paid.

    Don't worry if you have to change a date in advance due to something unforeseen or we are unlucky with the weather we can change the date without losing your paid fee.

    Most clients prefer prints of dogs in colour because simply they feel it is better. Black and White does not always work for them. However, sometimes black & white can have a big visual impact to the eye if done the right way and presented well. All sessions are done in colour and the final choice can be converted to black & white.
