Animal Portraits

I have a relaxed and calm approach with pet portraiture, as I find this approach works very well with all animal and pet photography.

I am patient and comfortable around animals of all types, temperaments and sizes. Having spent many years with horses, farm animals and owning my own horses dogs and cats, plus a plethora of rescued creatures over the years, I am able to capture the essence of your pet by encouraging play and letting them relax around me. Once they are happy with me and the camera and without rushing things, I know I will get the perfect portrait.

My main aim is to capture the personality of the animal, just as you know and love them. I find that a natural environment is usually the best way to capture the essence of each pets personality, especially with horses and dogs. So outdoors, a favorite walk, or game in the garden.

Horses can be photographed in work, with or without you, in the stable, or just out in the field enjoying the moment, with hooves flying. 

I do have a studio, so I can accommodate your pets here, or I can set up a mini mobile studio at your home if you prefer. This can be a better option for cat owners, or for pets that can be nervous in a new environment or hate traveling.
