Nick probably takes more dog related images than any other photographer in the UK and if you are looking for someone to capture the personality and exuberance of your “best friend” then look no further. Based in rural Buckinghamshire we have some fantastic locations right on our doorstep ranging from open grass fields to stunning hillsides, we can even arrange for the use of a water location (at a small extra cost).
A session will normally last about an hour although within reason we do not limit the time and there is no limit on the number of images we will take. We are quite happy for you to split the sitting fee between a friend and we do not charge “per dog”. Nick photographs a lot of working gundogs and we always have a good supply of cold game available all year round. We can also supply customised gift vouchers which are valid one year from the date of issue.
In 2010 Nick developed the first dog photography courses to be held in the UK and over the past five years he has taken these courses to Scandinavia and to various locations throughout the UK. Nick has written two books on photographing dogs and domestic pets, he has also published two coffee tables books “Labradors…At Work, Rest and Play” and “Spaniels” both of which have gone on to be international sellers. Nick is gundog editor for the Sporting Gun magazine and regularly writes for a number of other publications. Nick has undertaken commissions worldwide and has made numerous radio and television appearances.
