Why Wall Art?

Why Choose One Of Our Wall art Pieces?

Why spend money on a professional photo shoot, only to hide your images away where no one can see them? Our wall art pieces create a unique statement piece for your home or office.

That 30″ x 24″ canvas gallery wrap of your pet is a one off, no-one else is going to own one of those.

Most of today’s photographs are quickly snapped on a smartphone and shared almost immediately on social media. They are lost amongst a tide of other images in an instant and soon forgotten about.

Why wall art?

By investing in a piece of wall art you have a lasting tribute to your pet. What better way to show how much they mean to you and your family?

Sadly, our pets don’t live as long as us. But a stunning piece of wall art will help keep their memory alive for ever.

No wall space, and not willing to make some room? Then maybe one of our luxury fine art photo books is the answer for you.

But it would be much nicer looking through that book while sitting beneath your best friend’s portrait!

A Blog For June

A rather late blog post, it’s June already what has happened to April and May? Well they seem to have sped past very quickly. So many apologies for not getting around to posting anything here for a long time.

May Camping Trip

Tom and Fidget camping in Wales

May saw Fidget and me off on one of our camping trips. This time to the wilds of the Brecon Beacons. We managed to get in some nice walks, and we even managed to time it right for some sunny weather.

It wasn’t one of our favourite camp sites, but the location was absolutely stunning, and the facilities and the site staff were brilliant. It was just a bit too busy with the “wrong” type of campers, and there was a rather busy road just by the campsite. But we still had a lovely break, and we are already planning our September trip.

In other news

Much work has been happening on the website. A few tweaks here and there in the background to try and optimise the site, and some changes to layout and content.

You can check out all the changes at www.shootingthedog.com

Meanwhile Fidget has been out playing with his friends and generally just being Fidget.

12th Birthday Special Offer

As our 12th business birthday is soon upon us, we have a fabulous special offer for anyone booking a studio photo shoot before the end of July.

Birthday Special Offer

And, we are getting close to completing our rebranding from Tom Horsley Photography to Shooting The Dog. Our new shop sign has now been ordered and hopefully will be with us before the end of the month.

It’s Christmas Time ….

Well things are beginning to slow down now as we get to the last few days before the big event.

The final few framing jobs just need to be finished off (and collected by the customers!), and then we can relax … and go for a pre-Christmas beer.

2018 has been a busy year, with things changing slightly as we try to stay ahead of an ever changing market place. What with people worried about their finances and how the “BREXIT” effect will impact them, trying to tempt them to spend money on a luxury item is never going to be easy. Add to that a few problems with a naughty intervertebral┬ádisc and … let’s just say it has been difficult at times.

That said, we have had some wonderful customers through our doors this year, and we are already looking forward to shooting a lot more pets in 2019.
The calendar is already open, so don’t be shy about making a booking!

This year we have been looking at ways to make the mundane, paperworky (that’s my new word of the month) things easier. We have have started using FramR software for pricing the framing work, and Studio Ninja software to streamline the photography side of things. We have some minor things to iron out in both of these to fit the way we work, but we are getting there.

And so to next year ..

As with this year, the business will be moving more away from the original “Tom Horsley Photography” ideas, and much more down the “Shooting The Dog” road.

We pride ourselves on our pet portraits, we love doing them, and want to produce the best results we can for our customers.

So, next year should see some more changes to the shop; with less random “stuff” on the shelves, and more things related to the pet photography service on display. Print sales from the shop have pretty much dried up, so we’ll be moving all the landscape print sales to the web site only, and free up some more space in the shop.

Other than that, unless I come up with a cunning plan or win the lottery, we’ll continue to provide, what we hope is, quality service with everything we do, at a reasonable price (while still be able to eat occasionally!).

Thank you to everyone who has supported us this year, and we look forward to seeing you all again in the New Year.

Oh, and for those of you who have had you pet photographed with us before there might well be a very special offer for a follow-up shoot next year. I’m sure some details will be being published soon.

November News …

Well, November has been and gone – very quickly in my mind.

We’ve been doing lots of work on the web site this month, and The Framing Dept continues to be busy as usual.

We had two dog photography sessions last week, one with a wonderful rescue Bulldog, and the other was with two eleven month old Chihuahua x JRT brothers (it was chaos, but in a lovely way!)
