HOW A PRIVATE COMMISSION WORKS?
In order to make sure that I capture photographs of you best friend that you will be able to treasure forever, I offer an initial telephone consultation in order to establish the type of photographs/fine art images that you would like me to capture during your commission. Of course, this brief is not set in stone and we will have a follow-up consultation on the day of the photoshoot to ensure that nothing has changed.
Do you choose the location?
Nearly all of our clients prefer to come to us as we offer a stunning choice of location, Tattershall woods or home studio which is situated near the market town of Tattershall and all the countryside and is surrounded by traditional woodland.
How Your Photoshoot will work

2. During the photoshoot we our aim is to capture the true character of your dog/s and to do this we will capture the following:
- Fine art portraits that can be turned into stunning pieces of wall art taken in our outdoor studio.
- Photographs of you together to capture your special bond with your best friend.
- Woodland shots of your dog/s having fun, jumping over logs, running, chasing balls etc.
All of the images shown will be edited to the very highest standards, we do not believe in showing unfinished images as we want you to be 100% confident in your decisions during the viewing and it is not a guessing game.
