Frequently Asked Questions
WILL MY DOG BE SUITABLE FOR A PHOTO SESSION?
MY DOG DOESN’T EVEN KNOW SIT, CAN YOU STILL PHOTOGRAPH HIM/HER?
MY DOG CAN’T BE OFF-LEAD, WILL THAT BE AN ISSUE?
My puppy isn't fully vaccinated, should I wait?
WHAT AGE SHOULD MY DOG BE?
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH OTHER PETS?
My cat won't be happy in the studio can you bring the studio to me?
CAN HUMAN FAMILY BE IN THE PHOTOS?
Sessions that are won (as opposed to purchased) are for pets only, unless the winner commits to investing in artworks.
Children need to be old enough to sit up on their own.
CAN WE DO THE SHOOT AT HOME?
If your home has nice light and a beautiful garden with space to run then I’m definitely open to that idea!
WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?
On-location Sessions: Light plays a huge part in the photos I take. If there is rain or a lot of cloud cover forecast we’ll need to reschedule. I also don’t shoot in high temperatures or strong winds as, in my experience, your dog won’t be comfortable and that will be reflected in the photos from the shoot. My number one goal is to get the best possible images for you so sessions may need to be rescheduled more than once.
Studio Sessions: These are only rescheduled due to weather if there’s a storm so loud that it will pose a distraction for your pet.
MY DOG IS SICK, CAN YOU FIT IN A LAST MINUTE BOOKING?
Where possible my schedule can be adjusted to accommodate urgent sessions for pets that are terminally ill.
DO YOU EVER COME TO ANY OTHER CITIES?
With three high maintenance dogs of my own I very rarely travel anywhere else (for work or pleasure!) but I do offer sessions in Canberra at least once a year and I can travel to other places that meet these requirements:
- I only travel to places I can drive to in NSW/ACT
- Travel session clients commit to invest a minimum of $2995 in artworks from their session
- If I’m traveling more than two hours from home I’ll book overnight accomodation. In this situation I need a minimum of two clients from the area to book and for their sessions to take place in the same 36hr period (ie one at sunset and one at sunrise)
- Artwork collection is from my studio in Alexandria (Sydney)
