Dog Portrait Photography in Somerset
These two handsome chaps Archer & Buddy visited me in my Somerset studio, close to Bridgwater, for a dog photo shoot. Archer is a dachshund ( sausage dog!) and Buddy veteran lurcher , both with loads of bounce in them. Both of them are mummy’s boys very loyal to their mum but a few sausages pieces enticed them to do a few poses! The test was to try to get them together in one image – their mum wasn’t sure it could be done – but we worked very hard to keep them still for a second and we got it. We got a few out-takes as well, that made me laugh! Buddy’s favorite prop was the soft blanket – very much like the sofa at home – nice and comfortable. Archer preferred the suitcase and kept jumping back in, to settle down for a rest. It happened to be valentines on the day of the session so we were going to try to get both boys holding a rose in their mouth ( we obviously made the roses safe and thorn free) – both no luck – so we moved on to plan two. Have a look at some of my favorite portraits below.
