Hello

Beautiful wall art as unique as your own dog

My name's Rob and I just love to photograph dogs – and even more than that I love to create unique pieces of wall art celebrating your favourite four-legged friends.

I believe that every canine companion has a totally distinct personality, and a well-loved one truly is part of the family. My philosophy is that your dog deserves a portrait, not just a nice photo to put on Facebook.

If you want to capture the essence of your furry companion then get in touch, and together we will create a distinctive portrait that really brings out their unique character.

 
 

How it works

As easy as 1-2-3

Getting a beautiful and unique portrait of your furry friend is a simple and enjoyable experience in three stages:

1: The COnsultation

First, get in touch on 07800 877932 or by using the form below.

We'll arrange a meeting, video chat or phone call for you to tell me more about your doggy, their story and personality and what kind of end results you are looking for out of the experience. If you'd like to go ahead, we confirm a time and place for the photoshoot.

2: The Photoshoot

After setting up equipment and making sure your dog is nice and settled, we'll get a variety of shots in different poses to capture their distinctive poses and expressions.

Don't worry if your pooch is sometimes nervous, excitable or hard to photograph – I'm very patient and have lots of treats and squeaky toys to keep their attention!

3: The Selection

At a private viewing session, I'll show you a selection of the best images from the photoshoot and you decide which ones best capture your dog's character, and what you'd like to order.

Then I'll create your wall art and gift products and deliver them to you, normally within about 7-10 days.

 

Packages

A range of options to suit your needs

Whichever option you choose, all photoshoot experiences include the pre-shoot consultation, travel to your home or favoured outdoor location and a personalised shoot of usually around an hour – though we'll keep going until we believe we've got the shots you want!

If you choose to have the photo session at your home, I'll bring appropriate backdrops, and professional photographic lighting to create a popup studio.

I generally shoot within Yorkshire and the North East, so if you're much further afield, let me know.

About Paw Prints

Paw Prints is a full-service canine photography business based in Pickering, North Yorkshire and run by me, Rob Townsend.

I've been passionate about dogs and photography for a long time now, and a couple of years ago I decided to combine the two.

For the last few years I've been studying for an arts degree in photography, and this grounding in the arts have given me a new perspective on what makes a compelling image, and I bring this to my canine portraiture.

We have two lovely dogs ourselves, Jasper the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (barky) and Henry the Bedlington Terrier (bouncy) and it was photographing these two that got me started.
