Life Under Lock Down #2

Coping with life under lock down

As a pet photographer, things have come to a grinding halt under social distancing measures, when it comes to actually photographing pets. But I have been keeping myself amused and busy by trying some different ways to edit photographs. I have been revisiting some old shots and giving them various artistic effects. Some have been very effective and some not so effective.

If you follow us on Facebook you may have seen some examples already, but if not then here are some of the more successful attempts.

Would you like one of your pet?

If you would like me to do something similar with a photo of your pet, just send me a copy of a photograph you would like me to do something “arty-farty” with and we’ll give it a go. After all I’m not doing much else yet. I’ll do the processing work for free and e-mail something back to you. If you would like to get a piece of wall art printed from the final image then let me know and I can arrange this at our normal wall art prices.

Just email your image to and we’ll do all the rest!

It might just help us to make a little money while we are dealing with life under lock down, which in turn might mean we can actually re-open when this is all over.

Hi Tom
Great idea. Can you do one of Molly using the photo you took at Christmas for the cards please?
