P R I V A T E   C O M M I S S I O N S - The 'How to' step by step Guide

S T E P   O N E

Once you have taken a relaxed journey through the Portfolio -

 

decide whether you would like a Studio setting or would you prefer to take advantage of our 7 acres of fully secure grounds OR if you would like to have the best of both worlds and split your photo session?

 

The choice is entirely yours, but please be aware that if you book an outdoor shoot then sometimes Mother Nature

has other ideas - in which case we can accommodate the session in our Studio or re-book your outdoor shoot

for a more suitable day.

I N D O O R    S T U D I O

Our 600 sq ft Indoor Studio is designed to suit all breeds of dogs....from small right upto the giants.

We have a variety of sets and scenes which are very adaptable depending on the 'look' desired.

Props are readily available and can be used in a variety of unique ways - creativity is key.

We have old barns, fields and woodland settings available to use as backdrops which look absolutely stunning.

All surrounded by a secure 'dog-proof' fence -  

as our client, you can be assured that your beloved companion will be safe at all times

On the mutually agreed day of the shoot -

 

On arrival you will be welcomed into the Reception area,

where you can relax with a refreshment.

Carolyne will offer another pre shoot consultation to

ensure that you get the exact photographs you require

from the photo session.

 

The photo shoot lasts for around one hour - although

within reason Carolyne does not limit the time

and there is no limit on the number of images Carolyne

will take -  including portrait, action shots etc. 

 

Remember to bring any favourite toys, frisbees, balls and anything that your dog enjoys playing with, don’t worry if you forget anything we have a good supply of various dog friendly bits and pieces.

 

Wear your normal dog walking clothing and footwear.

 

T H E   S E S S I O N 

Each client is different - each dog, regardless of breed traits, is unique.      

Each session is custom designed to suit your wonderful dog or dogs.

Carolyne will spend as long as it takes to let your precious bundle feel at ease with her and the surroundings

'Get their PAWS under the table!'

Carolyne always says 

"I start every shoot with  5 big bags  of PATIENCE - and I have never ran out yet!"

The session fee includes Carolynes time, her expertise in a lifetime of living and working with dogs and skill of knowing how to get the very best from them, in a fun and relaxed manner.

The fee also includes Carolynes natural talent as a digital artist and the digital processing of the final images.

This includes a helping hand through the product ordering stage of the experience.
