booking and payments
How do I book services with you, what’s the process?
Where are you based and do you travel?
I’m based in Toronto and do the majority of my local shoots at Cherry Beach off leash dog park between 7am-9am on weekends.
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes, please contact me here for details.
What are your prices and packages?
How and when do I make payment?
We require payments prior to the start of any week. You can pay online with your credit card or paypal, or via e-transfer.
Dog Photo Shoots
A deposit is required to book any photoshoot – details are in the booking process. The balance is due when ordering your edited hi-resolution prints. Payment can be made via e-transfer, or online via credit card or paypal.
Do you do indoor shoots?
Periodically I partner with local companies and other dog organizations to use their space for a day of mini shoot sessions (30 minute slots for each dog). Please contact us to find out the date of the next mini photo shoot session.
What happens in a typical shoot?
We will meet at the shoot location at 7am and get the dog comfortable with the camera (and sometimes flash). I will then take some practice shots to check the lighting and then head straight into the shoot. Depending on what kind of images you have requested, you may be asked to assist in the session by directing the dog.
Can you take photos of our children / family during our session?
I am predominantly a dog photographer and so the focus of my work will always be on the dog. If you are looking for someone to take child or family portraits where the focus is on people, I can recommend another photographer where this is their area of expertise.
What if the weather is bad on the day of the shoot?
We can shoot in all conditions apart from rain, very poor light or snow. If the weather forecast looks unfavourable I will contact you the day before the proposed shoot to reschedule to a mutually agreeable time.
What happens after the shoot?
Within 5 days of your dog’s photo shoot, you will have access to your private gallery of hi-resolution images. From this gallery, you select those images you wish to purchase, completing our photo shoot contract.
The number of images is dependant on the photography package you purchased. You may purchase additional images at a small surcharge – this is explained during the selection process.
At this point, you will complete the purchase, online, via our payment system, and you will have immediate access to your pet’s new hi-resolution photography.
After you’ve purchased your digital images, we can discuss printing and (or) mounting your new images on our hand-crafted desk-top or wall-art products. You can see these products here.
Who do you use to print your images? How long will my printed product(s) take to be delivered?
I work solely with GTA Imaging – a family owned and operated professional photo lab in the GTA that serves professional photographers only. Their work is of the highest quality – indeed they are the go-to printing house for professional photographers in Ontario. Turn around times are between 7-14 business days.
Do you provide any additional or unedited images?
The number of images we provide is based on the photography package you purchased. You can see these photography packages here.
