Kind words from others

Capturing character. Naturally.
Playful puppies, active adults, sleepy seniors… I love letting dogs be dogs! I’ve taken thousands of photos of my own dogs over the years, and the ones that remain my favourites are those where the dog is covered in mud or snow, soaking wet, or carrying the world’s biggest stick! My approach is natural and informal rather than highly styled. I do spend a little time shooting portraits of your dog but the majority of the session is spent capturing them as they roam, play fetch, and generally enjoy being outdoors.
Examples from previous sessions
Choose your location
Each of the following Bristol locations is an ideal environment for photographing dogs outdoors. They all consist of open grassland along with shaded areas of woodland. You may already have a favourite, but if not the information alongside each photo should help you decide.
Ashton Court Estate
Ashton Court Estate, Long Ashton, Bristol
Parking: Pay & display car park (Mansion House), nearest postcode: BS41 9JN
Large country park to the south west of Bristol city centre with an abundance of grassland and woodland for your dog to explore. Easily accessible from the M5 and A38 south of Bristol.
Blaise Castle Estate
Blaise Castle Estate, Kings Weston Road, Lawrence Weston, Bristol
Free car park, nearest postcode: BS10 7QT
Large open parkland to the west of Bristol, with woodland trails, castle and brook - perfect if your dog likes a paddle! Easily accessible from the M5 northbound and southbound.
Oldbury Court Estate
Oldbury Court Estate, Oldbury Court Road, Fishponds, Bristol
Free car park, nearest postcode: BS16 2JH
Open parkland and woods to the north east of Bristol, including a riverside path along the River Frome, often resulting in a very wet and muddy dog! Easily accessible from the M4 and M32. Free parking.
Troopers Hill Nature Reserve
Troopers Hill Nature Reserve, St George, Bristol
Suggested parking: Malvern Road, BS5 8JA
Troopers Hill is probably my favourite location to photograph dogs. It’s a rugged, heather covered hillside in east Bristol, with rocky crags, woodland paths, and excellent views across the city. Please only choose this location if you have good control over your dog, as there are some steep, rocky areas. Ample street parking close by.
Warmley Forest Park
Warmley Forest Park, London Road, Warmley, Bristol
Free car park: Station Close, BS15 4NJ
An area of open grassland and woodland in South Gloucestershire, to the east of Bristol. A peaceful, rural setting, and there’s a large pond if your dog enjoys a splash! Easily accessible from Bath, the M4 and A4174.
