“Thank you so much for our wonderful portraits. Our Siberian Huskies can be a bit of a handful but you captured them at their very best. Your time and patience are a credit to you, and the outcome was just breathtaking. Thank you once again for memories we can treasure forever.”
Sarah, Steve, Sachi & Rikka Ottewell

“Amazing work Chris, I could not be more delighted with the final results. Superb quality, your skill and patience during and after the photo shoot to get me the perfect pictures was much appreciated. I will highly recommend you to all my dog walking mates. Thank you very much.”

Whether it’s formal or fun, classically-posed or outrageously laid back, we’ll help you decide how best to achieve the results. You may want the fashionable look of black and white or the nostalgia of sepia. You may decide that glorious colour is the only way to truly capture the image you want.

We will offer expert help and advice – but the choice is all yours.

We have a wide range of frames, canvas and print sizes to choose from, designed especially to match the decor of your home.
