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 partnership with Scotts Pet Supplies. I met Karen and Gary at the Scottish Kennel Club Championship Show and instantly fell for their personalities and total dedication to their dogs. animals and business. I’m now super pleased to announce we have got together to give you guys the chance to get some Fetch and Flash magic alongside some discount from Karen at Scotts Pets!

On Saturday 7th September I will be at the shop running outdoor dog photography sessions. I will have 8 half hour slots available and 3 packages to choose from. On top of that Karen will be offering 10% discount off everything sold in the shop that day, if you book a photography session or not. It’s worth coming down to say hi just for that.

I will be photographing the dogs in the green space around the shop. Each session will last around 20 minutes and I’m offering three set packages giving you a chance to get one of my most popular pieces of wall art, the Birch Block, featuring your best pal at a great price.

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 session 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 Scott’s Pet Supplies 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 to enable as many people as possible to get their session. If you can’t make either of these two dates you will be given the opportunity to travel to me in Peebles for your session at a time convenient to us both.

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

If you can’t make it on the day you can choose a partial refund, I will retain a £35 admin fee, or you can travel to Fetch and Flash in Peebles and take advantage of the offer at a time convenient to us both. There will be a separate delivery charge of £10.50 on your artwork.

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.
