Your photo shoot experience will begin having a chat on the phone or at your home with Craig. He will discuss with you what you’re looking for from the photoshoot and tailor the session to best suit your needs.
Craig will discuss and arrange with you where would be a suitable location and time to meet for the photoshoot. He is more than happy to go on one of your favourite walks/locations or can make a few suggestions. Craig’s aim is to capture your pet out on one of their adventures whether it be a walk through the woods at the beach or even up the hills. All his work is undertaken in the outdoors to let your dog be itself and show its own character and personality during the photo shoot.
If the elements outside are not looking good and you’re not interested in getting drenched, Craig will just rearrange with you for another day.
The photo shoot will last around 1 to 2 hours but there is no time scale, so you don’t feel rushed and the shoot takes part in a stress-free environment.
After the photo shoot Craig will professionally edit and re-touch your images and prepare them for your viewing day. The viewing of your images will be around 2 weeks after the shoot and this will be in the comfort of your own home. Craig will assist you in choosing your favourite images and any art works/frames to show case your bespoke pictures.
Often families or pet owners may also wish to have their photograph taken with their pets, bringing on the greatest challenge of all, “children and animals”.
Meeting at the photoshoot Craig will take some time to meet you and your pet(s). He wants to make the photoshoot memorable for all the right reasons. During the shoot he will use a range of pet photography techniques that best suit both obedience level and traits of your pet.
There are no hidden costs.
To confirm your photoshoot there is a session fee of £50 that is payable in advance. It confirms your photoshoot on an agreed date and location. You will discuss with Craig what you are looking for from the photoshoot and can create a Pinterest board to give each other ideas.
You then have two options (uncomplicated) for the type of package you are looking for.
After Craig has edited your images, he will provide an online gallery for you to view and choose your images at your own leisure around 2 weeks after your photoshoot.
The costs for the downloadable images are:
Portraiture Collection 1 – £250 – 10 High resolution images – additional images £15
Portraiture Collection 2 – £400 – All images from the photoshoot (downloaded in high resolution)
Once you have chosen your images Craig can assist you in choosing wall art to show case your photos. He will provide example products to choose from the award-winning UK printers he exclusively uses that are based in Scotland for all his work, prints, photo albums and framed wall art.
Prices start from £150 for a 20×16 framed print.
To add prints to your digital package, prices start from £95 from what you will receive ten 7×5 Giclee fine art prints. Craig used this type of paper as it retains its complexion on the archival paper to ensure its longevity and add distinction and style to the final product.
