Happy New Year!
That’s it, our Christmas break is over, and we’re back in the shop – so Happy New Year to you all. As we start a brand new decade, we wonder what it has in store for us all.
Hopefully, it will be a peaceful time, where we all prosper and take care of the planet and each other. Well we can at least hope!
Mel is busy sorting out a few framing jobs, Tom is putting together a few ideas for pet photography sessions and Fidget is asleep in his basket.
We are making a few changes in the shop, that should come to fruition over the next week or so.
We will be having a bit more space put aside to show off the “Brilliant Bygones” collection of ephemera. So expect to see some weird and wonderful framed (and unframed) pieces from times gone by to be on the wall very soon.
We are having to call it a day with the crafting supplies; the opening of The Range in Paignton recently has really killed off what little demand there seemed to be for it at the prices we have to charge to remain profitable. It seems that Torbay Council would rather allow the building of out of town shopping with free parking, than support the local town centres.
Do come in and say “hello” if you are passing, or even better, bring us some work!
Our Christmas Card Sessions
By now everyone should have had their Christmas cards, so it is safe to show you some of the cards we produced before Christmas. We had a great response to this promotion and will definitely be doing it again this year.

Final Shoot of 2019
Our final shoot of 2019 was of Dexter and Riley. Two Border Terrier brothers who couldn’t have been more different when performing in front of the camera. Dexter was quiet and demure, while Riley was really up for it and in your face. Great fun and as always it was a pleasure to get to work with them.
… And So into 2020
As we move into the new year, we are looking forward to working with lots more lovely dogs, and hopefully we’ll get to work with some other pets as well. Would love to get the chance to work with some of the more exotic pets – snakes and lizards maybe.
We had quite a few gift vouchers go out as gifts for Christmas, so we are expecting to see those coming in as booking soon.
Our gift vouchers have no expiry date, so if you received one as a gift, don’t panic! You can always wait until the warmer weather comes around again and go for an outdoor, on-location shoot if you wish; or maybe even a snow scene, if we get any of the white stuff over the winter.
One slight change we are making with our products for 2020, if you purchase a piece of wall art or an album we will now provide you with a USB memory stick of social media ready images as a gift. So now you will be able to share your images with your friends and family at no extra cost.
