WHAT I DO: PHOTOSHOOTS FOR INDIVIDUALS & COMPANIES
I offer photo sessions for both private individuals, associations, local events and companies. Projects include a series of images for someone looking to celebrate the life and companionship of their pet, a bank of images for pet food brands, and even calendars for animal based associations. Images can be delivered as prints and digital files.
I am currently based in Brighton, UK, and may travel across the country, the channel or the pond for the right projects.
My partnerships include animal shelters in Paris (SPA - Société Protectrice des Animaux), Franklin Pet Food, My Pet Agency, Handi'Chiens, Tout pour le Toutou Conciergerie, Pet & Co, Woof Run, as well as Instagram influencers Emma & Joy, Lingly & Maya, and Choupette Lagerfeld.
SUPPORT TO ANIMAL SHELTERS + TV DOCUMENTARY
In the last few years life took me to several countries after being in the UK for almost 15 years. During this time I have worked closely with animal shelters both in Copenhagen and Paris. Those photo sessions aim at making positive and personality-based portraits of abandoned animals, such as dogs and cats, but also small mammals (sometimes known as 'pocket pets'), in order to help them find a new loving home.
French TV channel C8 followed me during one of those sometimes challenging photo sessions to be aired in one of the most popular animal TV shows in the country, called 'Animaux à Adopter' (Animals to Adopt). The episode took place in the Saint Omer's shelter in the north of France with a wonderful team of selfless employees and volunteers! (see video below):

PHOTOSHOOTS FOR INDIVIDUALS
Dogs and cats may have a short life but their impact in our lives is intense. Through photography my primary goal is to capture expressive portraits and trigger emotions, so you can see and discover sides of your pet you may have never seen before, and turn them into funny and loveable prints to decorate your walls and home.
Book a photographic experience today, and enjoy unique prints, wall decoration and gifts of your favourite furry companion forever.
PHOTOSHOOTS FOR COMPANIES
I regularly work with companies of all sizes to provide a particular image or bank of images to promote their products and services in a unique way.
Feel free to contact me to share and discuss your project.
PHOTOSOOTS FOR ASSOCIATIONS - CALENDAR FOR HANDI'CHIENS
Emotion packed images are the perfect way to draw attention to an important cause. For example, Handi'Chiens is a French association that provides fully trained assistant dogs for free to children and adults with a disability. Their calendar helped raise a huge amount of money to finance the training of their dogs. It takes £12,000 to train one dog.
Assistant dogs are by nature sensible and the aim of this photoshoot was to capture their true, fun and individual personality, and to give a dynamic and positive image to their wonderful dogs.
The photo session took place at the amazing Residence of the British Ambassador to France in Paris.
PARTNERSHIPS & POP-UP EVENTS
The Dog Project sometimes takes part in local shows and events in order to create original pop-up photoshoots, such as Pet & Co at Ground Control in Paris, or the Woof Run in the ground of the Bertichères chateau.

BOOK A PHOTOSHOOT
BEFORE THE SHOOT:
To book a photoshoot you can contact me via the contact form at the bottom of the page.
Once your payment is through, your slot is booked for a specific date and time. I will then send you a short questionnaire to learn about your pet and give you some information about the session.
DURING THE SHOOT:
The shoot lasts between 1-1.5hr depending on your option. During that time, we'll let your dog/cat familiarise themselves with the place and me. You'll sign a short standard photographic form about the rights and use of images. We'll take some photos, have a few breaks and review the photos together. I will talk to you about products but you don't have to decide on any purchase that day.
AFTER THE SHOOT:
Your photo selection will be ready around 2 weeks after the shoot. Depending on your option you will receive a gallery to choose photos from. Once your choice is made I will send the order to the printer and will give you a link for delivery at your home.
WHO AM I?
After 8 years abroad in Denmark and France, I am now back in Brighton to create unique and fabulous pet portraits for all the pets in the south east area. I spent many of my years in Brighton working as a care worker alongside children and adults with learning difficulties and challenging behaviours. Then for 8 years in Copenhagen and Paris I honed my skills and developped a particular style photographing hundreds of different dogs from extremely shy rescued Olaff to super energetically young Poppy, and all the personalities in between. Whether your dog is scared of men, jealous of tall humans, timid or has ADHD, I have worked with many of them, creating amazing portraits and souvenirs.
YOUR PET IS GALLERY WORTHY
Don't let your thousands of photos be buried on your Instagram account. Live the experience of a photoshoot and decorate your walls with what you treasure the most: your beloved beasties!
My goal is to capture a variety of expressions, trigger emotions that will make you smile, perhaps surprise you, and sometimes make you discover a new sides of your pet. The idea is to create memories forever!!
