Pet Photography Prices and Philosophy

The moments you spend with your treasured pets are priceless. Your four-legged companion's photography session will capture your pet’s unique personality in world-class photos that you’ll hang on your home’s walls with pride.

It's the Details that Transform Pet Portraits into Fine Art

Any photography studio can take pet photos. What sets our photographs apart is our attention to detail.

We approach pet photography as fine art. With a natural affinity for animals, Dominic puts his observational powers to work to see the qualities that make your pet unique. Then, he puts your four-legged family member into the perfect setting to show off their personality.

What Happens in Our Pet Photography Sessions

To capture the personality and unique beauty of each pet, Dominic photographs them on location in parks, beaches, at home—or even on the street, documentary style. With stunning headshots in natural or studio lighting, he produces fine wall art in both metal and acrylic.

What Price Range Should I Expect?

We offer three types of photo art sessions that range from £49 to £129. Those prices cover photoshoots on location up to 25 miles from his Southampton base.

Dominic’s ‘London Life’ sessions cover Zones 1 and 2, with additional travel incurring a 50p per mile charge. For additional travel, we charge 50p per mile.

The session fee covers the following services:

  • Reserving a time for the session
  • 'The photo shoot itself
  • Post-shoot personal viewing and ordering session
  • Clients can apply the session fee as a credit toward their purchases of wall art, digital files, and other products. Please note: Digital files are not included in your session fee.

    The session fees work in the opposite way! You only pay a non-refundable reservation retainer to hold a space for your session. After the completed shoot, 100% of that reservation retainer becomes a payment credit towards any products during the ordering appointment.

    The Products

    Wall Art

    Art reflects who you are, your tastes and loves. A large creative picture of your dog can create a visual impact in your home. The most popular choices for pet wall art are metal and acrylic prints. The prints last 75 years if kept out of direct or strong sunlight. Metal prints are lighter than framed prints and are easy to maintain. This is why they create a wow factor when visitors see your home. You can even hang them in the bathroom without spoiling the print.

    Metal and acrylic prints can be purchased unframed or framed, depending on your choice. We also offer traditional framed prints to suit your home. Wall art comes in a variety of styles and finishes, starting at £259.

    All wall art is signed at the back by the photographer.

    Seriously Big Wall Art

    This is for clients who require a large piece of artwork over a metre long for large spaces at home or a business location. If you have a wow picture of your pet, you will certainly create a massive wow factor! They are usually done as metal prints for durability and lightness. In some cases, a bespoke photo shoot requires a digital medium format camera for a seriously big wall job. A consultation is required to assess the suitability of your potential project. Prices start at £1000, depending on the size.

    Gallery Collections

    Having a gallery collection is a lovely way of making a statement about your dog inside your home. It is also an artistic statement as you can fill a wall space, creating a unique style in your house or flat. There is a variety of options to choose from for your space. Help is at hand if you are not sure what to go for. Pricing varies.

    Albums and Images Boxes

    Many of our clients like to display most of the remaining images in a coffee table book or a beautiful image box containing the prints. This is a wonderful way of treasuring the images for years to come. There is a huge variety of albums and image boxes to choose from, starting at £250.

    Desktop Art

    We have a large range of high-quality products from the eye-catching Glacier blocks to framed prints. They are great for displaying on desks, sideboards and table tops at home or your office. These products start from £100.

    Frequently Asked Pet Photography Questions

    Many dogs are naturally fine with the camera and flash, but sometimes some are nervous about being photographed! This is not a problem if they are restless, as my camera can capture 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 will 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 the lens. We very rarely let dogs off the leash unless their owners are 110% confident in recalling the dog in any situation. In certain places, like urban areas, it is a must to keep dogs on a leash even with the most well-behaved dogs. We use show leads for portrait shots and a 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 direction.

    Yes, this may be done casually in the 'Happy Dog' session but if you are specificic about having a portrait with your dog then choose the 'Best Friends' Session. It would mean we only photograph you and the dog. We want to focus on getting the right picture in our limited time frame.

    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 up quickly, so we advise you to book early and pre-pay for your reservation.

    Don't worry if you must change a date in advance due to something unforeseen, or we are unlucky with the weather. We can change the date for you without your 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 and white photos 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 and white.
