Shooting The Dog specialise in dog photography.
In the studio, out on location, or even at your home.
We can help you with any of your dog photography needs.
Based in Brixham, we cover Torbay, The South Hams and surrounding areas.
The person behind the lens at Shooting The Dog is Tom Horsley.
Originally Tom started out photographing British wildlife as a hobby, and as a way to unwind from his job in IT. Tom has been a professional photographer for over twelve years, and has been specialising in pet photography for over ten years. His own dog, Fidget, must be one of the most photographed dogs in the country.
He soon found that the patience and quick reactions needed for wildlife photography were the perfect grounding for taking on pet photography. More and more people were asking Tom if he could photograph their pets that it soon seemed like a good idea to start specialising in this area. He hasn’t looked back.
In his own words “it’s much nicer than having to photograph people”
Tom’s love of dogs, and animals in general, will soon be apparent during your photo shoot. As much time will be spent playing and fussing your pet as taking the photographs.
Tom believes this is important. It is much easier to get a photograph of a relaxed dog if they are having fun and enjoying themselves. It may look like chaos but he sort of knows what he is doing. Well most of the time anyway!
As well as being a passionate dog lover, Tom has a diploma in dog behaviour from the British College Of Canine Studies. You can be assured that your dog is in good hands during their photo shoot.
Sir Fidget Smelly-Bottom
Fidget is the studio dog (and head of security), and has been photographed in many ways. He even has his own facebook page, and will always provide a noisy welcome when you visit the studio. He doesn’t stay for the photo shoot, as he feels he might become a bit of a distraction, but he can often be heard offering advice from upstairs!
