Summer Dog Photography Sessions from Fetch and Flash - 3rd August 2019


Hi I’m Cat, the photographer and chief ear scratcher at Fetch and Flash pet photography studios. I’m Excited to announce a weekend of Summer Dog Photography Sessions in Peebles. This is a chance to get a slightly shorter photo shoot and pre buy a piece of my wall art at a bargain price.

The sessions will be held in Peebles in my outdoor ‘studio’ at Gypsy Glen, where this image to the right was taken. I know the area well and it offers a few different spots to get some variety in a nice compact space, ideal for a shorter session.

The sessions will focus on getting a stand out portrait of your dog for you to have printed. You can either choose your own printing after the session or pre buy a Birch Block, my most popular choice for outdoor shoots at a discounted price. If you want to see a Birch Block in the flesh, pop down to Kailzie Gardens cafe for a coffee and cake where there is one hung on the wall. It’s dog friendly!

You can choose from the following packages:

Choose my printing after the session - £35

  • Portrait session

  • 1 watermarked social media file to download

  • An online gallery to purchase your choice of prints and products.

Pre purchase and save option 1 - £210

  • Portrait session

  • 24 x 16 Birch Block Wall Art - your favourite image of the session (Normally £295)

  • All the digital files available to download from your gallery

Pre purchase and save option 2 - £160

  • Portrait session

  • 12 x 12 Birch Block Wall Art - your favourite image of the session (Normally £250)

  • A choice of 2 digital files to download from you gallery

The Birch Block

Inspired by nature, each Birch Block comes beautifully finished and precision cut by master craftsmen.

The natural edge pattern of the 18mm thick birch photo block provides a clean, natural finish to the artwork.

A stunning C-Type Print is mounted to the face of the photoblock and then seal it with a protective crystal laminate. This scratch guards and waterproofs the image whilst also providing protection from UV fading. The birch block is hung via stainless steel fixing plates with foam protectors to prevent damage to your wall.


My dog won’t stay still, will I get a good portrait?

It is more than possible to get a good portrait of almost any dog, even if they are a bit lively. They do not need to be perfectly trained. If they have a good grasp of the basics of sit and stay then that will certainly help, but its not completely essential. If they are responsive to treats, toys and chats from mum and dad then we are normally fine. There is no need for your dog to even come off the lead, if you feel your dog would be safer and you would be more comfortable that way, then I am able to remove collars and leads in photoshop after I have taken the photos. If you are really concerned about your dogs behaviour then get in touch direct before you book and we can have a chat and see if I think these slightly shorter sessions are going to work for you.

When will I see the photos and how long will my artwork take to arrive?

The photos will be live to view within 7 days of the photo sessions. I will be asking everyone who takes part in the sessions to view and choose their favourite image for their artwork within a further 7 days. The artwork order will then be placed and should be available to pick up from Fetch and Flash around 2 weeks after that. If you are unable to choose your artwork within 7 days then a further charge of £10.50 seperate delivery will be added to your order.

What happens if the weather is really bad on the day?

If this happens I will reschedule to provide up to another 2 dates or you can choose a studio session instead.

What happens if I can’t attend on the day?

If you can’t make it on the day I will refund you with the exception of a £25 admin fee. This £25 will remain as credit for you against any other photography with Fetch and Flash in the future.

Honestly, I think this seems pricey. I’ve seen photography experiences for much less elsewhere.

A cheap upfront fee of £15 or £20 may seem attractive in the short term but it relies on charging you a lot of money for prints and products after the shoot. I much prefer to ask you to invest in a product upfront and be assured of what you are getting. Of course I’d love it if you want to spend more money with me but you should feel no pressure to do so. Both my photography and products of the highest professional quality which will bring you pleasure for many years to come.
