How is a photo session done??
I shoot a series of photos of your dog when sitting, lying, headshot
etc. What photos we take depends on what your dog wants to do. I try
to take as many diverse photos as possible or as the dog want to pose
for. A few days after the shooting the photos will be shown on a private
gallery on the Internet where you can view and select your photos. You
can get them in color or black and white. To get good photos its
essential not to force your friend it to doing something it doesn´t
want to do. Otherwise it may happen that your dog gets bored or stressed.
So my best advice is a lot of encouragement and no demands. Some treats
and a favorite toy can might also do the trick.
Outside or inside?
Where we do the session is your chose. If you wish I can come to your
house. A lot of people find its convinient and its also a place where
the dog feels comfortable. We also have the option to be outside at
a place chosen by you or recommended by me. Scotland is full of beautiful
places. The opportunities are endless.
What if it rains?
If the weather forcast does look like its going to rain a lot we just
have to cancel. As it can change very fast here I tend to try to give
the session extra time in case there will be showers. This is often
the case before the sun comes back again or the rain stops. There is
no need for a clear blue sky. A bit cloudy is often the best. If we
cant get any photos beacuse of bad weather you will get another chance
doing a session. I will not charge extra for that. This is Scotland!
Do I need to bring anything??
Bring along a favorite toy if popular. Many dogs also feel safe with
their favorite blanket to lie on. Treats of course! Feel free also to
bring along any personal props that you would like to be in the picture.
If you have the opportunity to get help from someone that can help during
photography. Specially when there is more than one dog being photographed
or if the dog is not very keen on posing. Its a good idea to bring a
towel to wipe the wee paws with.
