Edinburgh Dog Photographer - Shades of Alan!

It seemed only fitting that my first proper blog featured the fabulous Alan. He came down the studio when a friend mentioned him to me as a perfect candidate for some of my early portfolio work with dogs, “I know a one eyed Pug called Alan” to which my obvious response was “Ahhhh, I need to meet that dog!”. His Granny brought him down and what a star he was!

I’m not going to go on about this wee man too much more, but do expect to see him featured in some upcoming projects! Enjoy the shades of Alan.


Peebles Dog Photographer - Fetch and Flash is go!

WOW! What an amazingly busy few months. Before all that though I will give you a little back story to Fetch and Flash.

My name is Cat and I’m the human face behind Fetch and Flash pet photography. To put you in the picture I’ve been a working professional photographer for a little over 6 years now. I originally trained as a wedding photographer converting an amateur hobby into a business when I left my 10 year military career. It was a fantastic and fun few years shooting weddings and family photos for many wonderful clients. That mostly took place in Yorkshire. But with my own wedding and imminent arrival of family it was time for me and husband Paul to evaluate our priorities and move to a place where we wanted to build our lives and our family. So to Peebles we came!

So for me that meant a few years off, renovating our house and being mum to our wonderful son Rowan. Converting our outbuilding into a photography studio has always been on the cards and the time was finally right and so Fetch and Flash was born. I love animals, I’ve always loved animals. I was a pony obsessed girl who went into a brief career as a groom and I’ve had pretty much every small fluffy pet you can name at some point in my life. I’m a vegetarian who is almost vegan and so pet photography just made sense to me. The patience and calm manor I learnt in my time in the Army just lends me to it and making the switch has been a fantastic decision!

So those busy few months? From getting a logo for the business sorted and starting a facebook page to get my first doggy models through the door I’ve ended up fully booked for the last 3 months of 2018 and absolutely loving it! I owe the wonderful dog owning community of Peebles and the wider Scottish Borders a debt of gratitude for getting behind me and my wee studio. I’m absolutely loving what I’m doing and the artwork I’m producing is going from strength the strength on a daily basis. I know it’s hanging on the walls of clients houses bringing them pleasure every day and that’s what I aim for!

So here’s to 2019, I’ve got big plans, exciting ideas and loads to give. I really hope to meet you and your four legged friends soon.

Thanks for reading,
