Harnesses, collars and leads
If there are aspects of your chosen photo that you’d prefer me to leave out of your portrait, please just let me know. It’s usually possible for me to remove collars, harnesses, leads and name tags if you wish. I can also remove tear stains, dirt from muddy noses, and grey hairs (if you’d prefer your elderly pet to appear more youthful!)
More than one pet in your portrait
If you’re very lucky, you may have one photo that features all of your pets perfectly. In which case, hurrah!
More often than not though, it can be very difficult to capture each pet perfectly in the same photo. Luckily, I can work from separate individual photos of each pet to create a combined portrait, providing your photos tick the boxes below.
Make sure the photos of each pet you send me are taken at roughly the same perspective. For example, if you have a photo of one pet taken at floor level, and a photo of another pet taken at standing height looking down, the two photos won’t work together in the same portrait. If both photos were taken at floor level, or both taken at standing height, that would be fine.
Try to get the light coming from the same direction for each pet. If you have a photo of one pet with the light coming from the right, and a photo of another pet with the light coming from the left, it will look a bit odd when combined into one portrait.
Book a photoshoot
I’m always more than happy for you to bring your pets to me for a photoshoot. I’m based near Newquay in Cornwall, so if you live locally or are visiting on holiday, get in touch. I charge a flat rate of £20 for a photoshoot, and I’ll even email you some high-resolution photos for you to keep.
