The Photoshoot Experience........
What is it that we love about dogs?
Is it the love and devotion they give back to us? Or the cute tilt of their head, as if they are understanding what we are thinking? Or the fun and enjoyment that they bring to our lives each and every day?
You may have a show dog, an assistance dog, a working dog or that loveable family pet. Either way, we humans love dogs.
This is your opportunity to show that bond you have in a photoshoot by me, Chris Norton. Your photoshoot can be on a location where you regularly walk your dog, or with dramatic landscape backdrops of which Wales has plenty. To book a beautiful photoshoot of you and your dog for only £175, simply fill in a few details here, then I'll call you to discuss the photoshoot and to arrange a time and date with you.
Book your session
Once you've been inspired by the images you see here, and have decided to go ahead and book a session, it’s super easy. Just fill out the booking form with your preferred dates. I will then contact you to arrange a time, date and location where you and your dog(s) will feel happiest.
Select the location
Selecting the location
The location is a very important part of the photoshoot, it will have a striking effect on the images. There are three locations I regularly use, Hay-on-Wye, Brecon and Abergavenny. You may have another location in mind, a place you grew up, or a place you love. I know the landscape in Wales has some of the finest natural outstanding beauty in the UK. Take a look at some of the beautiful photos I have taken, all in Wales.
Get ready for your photoshoot
Once we have booked your photoshoot, and to help the session run as smoothly as possible here are a few tips.
Bring some of their favourite treats/toy,
A brush and towel to keep your dog(s) tip top.
We’ll also need to keep an eye on the weather forecasts. The weather on the day of your session is very important, as my style relies on it to create the best light & atmospheric images.
If the weather proves unsuitable, we’ll simply reschedule the session to another day at no extra charge.
Bring water for your dog, this will also help to reduce panting.
Enjoy the photoshoot
The photo session is an adventure to look forward to! The first few minutes I like to find out about the relationship you have with your dog/s and to learn a little about their character and charm. From this, we can then work on the poses and photographs to best show off your dog and the bond you have with them.
I will work with your pet to capture their unique character – that cute kink in their tail, soft floppy ears, or big toothy grin.
Your job during the session? Just be natural, chill out and relax – dogs have the amazing ability to pick up on human emotions. The more relaxed their beloved human is, the better they respond, especially if you’ve chosen to be in some of the photos too!
Choose your favourites
After the photoshoot there is usually a short break where you can grab a coffee while I put together your photographs ready for the Design consultation for your wall art.
The Design Consultation usually takes place at your home, or at another location.
This is where you will get to see the displays of Wall Art perfectly designed to suit your home.
