Dog Photography Experience Cheshire

Cocker Spaniel Dog Photographer - Cheshire

Welcome to the Perfect Dog Photography Experience…

…the one and only aim of Jonathan Yearsley Pet and Equine Photography.

Based in the beautiful North Wales countryside, nestled next to the Cheshire borders, within easy reach of Chester and the North West.  I’m dedicated to creating timeless art work for clients that want to work with a specialist in dog photography.  I’m the winner of the Xperience Pet Portrait Photographer of the Year, Kennel Club Dog Photographer of the Year and SWPP Dog Photographer Year runner up and one of a few qualified dog photographers in the country.

Location or Studio pet portrait photography

You might have a preference for an action related commission or a location portrait session in mind. I love to have the opportunity to photograph your pets in their favourite activity. Most of my location commissions take place at a specially selected local country park, which offers stunning views, wide areas of grasses, heather, rocky outcrops and even a lake. Or pay a little more and have me come out to you. It is your choice to make.

So whether it's a working Labrador on a water retrieve, a Border Terrier chasing balls out on the beach or a city centre street scene, I can create wonderful images out on location.

Why not take a look at the dog photography gallery to see examples of some of the locations I've worked with client's pets

An expert in the field of Dog Photography

Take a look at the fine art images shown in this particular gallery. Creating images of such quality is not an easy task with dogs. I spend time learning how your dog will behave, their coat, size and shape and then apply lighting to highlight their best features. This all means I will be able to guarantee quality imagery with my clients' pets.

Meeting the dog photography client's specific needs

Every client coming to me completes a short pre-session consultation. This helps me fully appreciate your dogs and exactly how to photograph them. Understanding their age, colouring and temperament all help me create the best images possible.

We discuss where they will sit on your walls, how large and what sort of photographic products work best.  I don't want to deliver you a small print; my images deserve to be printed big and framed beautifully. Using only the best professional laboratories in the UK, I offer a bespoke art work that fits your rooms perfectly. 

Creating the perfect finished doggy art work

Once the session is completed, I will invite you back to the studio for a viewing and art consultation session. This is your chance to select your absolute favourites from the images shown to you. We work with available budget and room space, to find exactly the right art work for your walls.

Due to the bespoke nature of the work I create, there are plenty of options, but the product gallery here will give you a good idea of what I have created for previous clients.

How much does a Dog Photography commission cost?

Given the quality of service I deliver to my clients, you would imagine that commissioning me is quite a costly exercise. This really isn't the case. I'm so sure that I will create images that you will love, that my most popular desktop package is only £125 and includes both a beautiful fine art desktop framed image of your favourite from the shoot and a £10 donation to a dog related charity.

The charity I'm supporting, at the moment, is Dogs Trust. I've helped raise over £4000 for Dogs Trust in last year alone.

This will cover a commission within 60 miles of Chester, beyond this there will be a negotiated charge for mileage.

There are a number of different commission options depending on whether you wish to come to me and my nearby locations; if I am to travel over to a location of your choice or if you wish to pre-purchase artwork and save money at the same time.

After the commission fee, the amount you spend will really be determined by the art work that you wish to purchase.  Small art pieces are priced from £95, with average clients investing around £450 and upwards on the fine art I deliver to them.
