HOW A PRIVATE COMMISSION WORKS?
Private Commission Initial consultation.
In order to make sure that I capture photographs of you best friend that you will be able to treasure for ever I offer an initial telephone consultation in order to establish the type of photographs/fine art images that you would like me to capture during your commission. Of course this brief is not set in stone and we will have a follow up consultation on the day of the photo shoot to ensure that nothing has changed.
Do you choose the location?
I can either come to you or I am now able to offer a stunning location The Old Hall which is situated near the market town of Whitchurch, south Cheshire.
The benefit of The Old Hall is that its an old 16th century black and white farm house that has attached a series stunning old buildings that we use as natural backdrops (please see examples below) as well as fields and water very close in a safe and secure environment.
How long does a private commission last?
The private commission will lasts around one hour and in that time I will take hundreds of images that will include portrait, detail shots, action and photos of you together to try and capture the relationship between you. I will not leave the photo shoot until I am 100% happy that I have all of the images on your brief and if this means that we go over the 1 hour session then there will be no further cost to you.
Can you photograph my children or me with my dog/s?
Yes of course, family photographs are very popular and I love capturing the relationship between you or children and their best friend, just make sure that you bring plenty of treats along.
Lifestyle/Stylised private commissions
If you would like a high end magazine look to your photographs then why not dress up for the occasion in your latest outfit with your best friend. It could be other country or city look the choice is yours.
The photos will then be edited and styled to suit the desired look required ready to look amazing on a wall in your home or office.
Can I share the Private Commission with a friend?

My Dog is not the best behaved can I still book a Private Commission?
Yes of course, I work with all types of dogs and the secret is during any doggie photo shoot is to make them feel relaxed and more importantly make it FUN!!!. Over the years of photographing dogs I have picked up lots of tricks and ideas that makes sure that I can capture the true character of every dog I photograph.
My dog is not in the best of health?
Its a fact of life that none of us are here for ever and as we get older our health can deteriote. This is no problem at with regard a dog photographer private commission, I would make sure that I understood the health implications from our initial consultation and at all times would only work within the guidelines given so as to ensure that your dog had a wonderful time and we captured the photographs that you want.
I would also try and focus on capturing the special bond that you have with your best friend as you can see in the examples below.
What happens if it rains?
One thing that we can’t control is the weather and that is why I always call all my clients the day before and keep a close eye on the weather forecast.
If the weather does not look that great then there are a couple of choices available.
1) We can postpone the shoot to another date at no cost.
2) Wait until the morning of the shoot and then make a decision, again if the shoot is postponed then there will be no additional cost.
How do we see the images you have taken?
Due to client demand I now offer a no pressure private viewing at our studio location which will enable you to see exactly what the photos/fine art will look like as finished framed art work on the wall. The feedback from my clients is that they find this invaluable as they may not have the time or contacts to make sure that the images really are presented to their best and by using my trusted suppliers I ensure that their images will be the focul point of their home or office. The viewing will normally take place the same day of the private commission.
Is your framed Wall/Fine Art expensive?
Quite simply No it isn’t. All of my frames are constructed by hand using the finest materials and non fade mounts and are completely bespoke..
The printing paper is archive proof which means that your photographs will look in 30 years time the same as the day you received them.
Your photographs have been produced to the very highest quality and deserve to be presented and produced using the best materials available and turned into real pieces of art.
