I specialize in photographing pets in their natural settings. If you're looking for a more formal, studio style shot of your four legged friend then I am not the photographer for you. I'd much rather shoot Fido chasing after his favourite stick, or you and Clip-Clop riding into the sunset. Pictures that you can look back on years into the future and be reminded not only of what your favourite pet looked like, but also of the kind of soul they had. Although I mostly shoot horses and dogs, I am willing to shoot most animals.
For you dog people I can either come to you, or we can arrange to meet at a scenic location in Grey or Bruce County. There are numerous parks, beaches, and trails that make for a great photo. Can't decide? We can mix it up and shoot at different locations. If your dog has a favourite toy then be sure to bring that as well. If you'd like to get in on a few shots as well, that's great too!
If your dog is a little larger and tends to neigh instead of bark then I can come to your farm (or the farm your horse is boarded at) for your session. Whether you're looking for photos of your horse just being a horse out in the pasture with his herd mates, shots of you riding, portraits with your horse, or a little of everything, a session with me is what you're looking for! Looking for a few photos to use for a sale or stud advertisement? I can do that, too!
Most of my sessions cost $85 an hour. This includes web sized downloads of the available images. These files are perfect for sharing with friends and family on Facebook and similar sites. Larger files and various prints can also be purchased. If you're booking a session that will heavily involve more than one pet then there will be an additional fee of $20 an hour per additional animal.
If you're selling a horse and need images for ads, or have a stallion you're advertising for stud then I will work with you to get you the shots you need at an affordable price. I offer a package for $50 that includes a half hour of shooting time and 5 mid-sized digital files with a print license for various types of advertisements, but if this doesn't work for you (whether you require more images, or have multiple horses to advertise) then we can discuss other plans that will better suit your needs.
Hosting an event? I'm available to shoot horse shows, clinics, mountain trail challenges, etc. Your show will be given it's own online gallery for participants to order prints and digital files from. USB drives are also available for pick up. I promise a two week turn around on all photos being ready, though the gallery is usually up much quicker than that.
For most schooling and small club shows, I don't charge a day fee. Depending on your show's location, I may charge for fuel. My schedule fills up fast for show season, so the sooner you contact me, the better.
Sound good? Then feel free to send me an e-mail at email@example.com to book your session or request more information!
