The Derby Dog Photographer


Dogs on Film

A simple concept; traditional Black and White photography of our most treasured pets…dogs; captured on film, and producing unique hand-crafted darkroom prints (digital scans also supplied). A timeless treasure of our most loved canine companions, that will last a lifetime. Servicing Spondon clients in Derby and surrounding areas.

Capture that moment…

My aim is to capture your dog with one timeless photograph that you select for printing. I carefully craft your chosen photograph as a darkroom print for framing. These days, it is refreshing to have photographs captured that have a certain timeless look, and that are captured with care and consideration. My style of photography often comes as a calming, less exhausting and refreshing change for all. A handful of beautiful images are taken, and then one is made into a print as part of the standard offering. Just like photography used to be.

The Canine Shoot

Typically lasts about an hour (though I do not set a time limit; I base the shoot around the comfort of the dog(s) and yourself). During that time I will usually take about 24 photographs, which is two rolls of professional film. Where possible, the shoot will be conducted at a place of your choosing ideally within reasonable travel distance of Derby in the East Midlands; this could be your home, back garden, local park, or place of special fondness.

Prices (£)

Costs are £60 per shoot for one dog (includes one 10″x8″ hand-crafted darkroom print and standard resolution digital scans). Additional darkroom prints can be requested if choosing one is too hard, at £10 per print and high resolution scans can be made available for additional fees.
