Flying Custard Photography Pet Portraiture

My Background With Animals

I have always been very fond of, and got on well with, animals. As a child growing up with litters of pedigree, champion, Miniature Schnauzers I had little choice! In case anyone is interest, my Mother was Margaret Jenkins, who bred dogs under the “Theotone” kennel name.

While my childhood was, sadly, a long time ago, I am still an animal fanatic, having a pair of Border Collies called Katie and Lucy, a Conure called Cookie and many tropical fish (without names as yet).

With this history with animals, I am very at ease around them, as they are with me.

What I Offer Regarding Pet Photography

While I am very happy to provide formal, posed (as much as the animal allows!) portraits, my style is more towards less formal images showing pets' characters. Please see the pet photography section of my portfolio to see what I mean.

My technique is to meet, and get to know, the animal before taking any photographs. This makes things much more relaxed and results in far better images.

I can offer pet portraiture as low key (typically with some of the subject hidden in shadow), mid key (with conventional lighting levels) and high key (with a pure white background). The last is better for fast moving pets!

Portable Studio Set Up

Should formal photographs be required then I use portable lighting and backgrounds, allowing me to provide studio quality results anywhere with mains electricity.

Presentation of Photographs

I provide a DVD of images from a shoot, or access to them on my WEB site if preferred, to allow selection of your preferred images. I can then provide these images as prints in framed or un-framed state or provide other options as required.
