I am a pet photographer based in North Manchester, near Wigan & Bolton
Photographing beautiful animals is such a pleasure. Puppy Photoshoots are amazing. Dogs & Equine are undoubtedly our most popular but we are happy to photograph any animal from Guinea Pigs, Llamas, Snakes, Cats and Kittens. Anything goes and I have lots of outstanding animal pictures in my gallery.
Barking Mad Pet Photography by Steve Lowrey is a name that’s synonymous in the Manchester area for beautiful pet photography.
Although the majority of my pet portraits are for dogs I also cater for all types of pets and have cute kittens and glorious horses in my gallery. You will also find snakes, reptiles and zoo animals amongst these pages.
We can take the photographs outside on location depending on the great British weather. You home is another perferct place either inside or in the yard or garden. More about locations below.
My studio based in Atherton is kitted out for dealing with dogs and smaller animals and is a great alternative in wet weather. No appointments have to be missed if a studio shoot is your first choice or backup.
I am based in Atherton in Manchester just 5 mins off J5 off the M61. My woodland shoots are local to me but can be held at a suitable location of your choice.
Getting out into the woodland and using natures backdrops adds a certain magic to any photograph.
Dog & puppy photography is a passion, I have had dogs all my life and understand the bond and love which I try and capture.
A woodland photo shoot generally last around 1 hour then I take the images back to the studio. A professional edit can takeover 4 hours, but the results will be well worth it.
Past clients tell me this is an investment they couldn’t afford to miss! Whether this shoot is for a new puppy or a faithful old friend, the results are heart warming.
Taking your pet or dog photographs in the comfort of your own home, yard or garden puts your dog in a familiar surrounding. Its important not to get your beloved friend too excited. Just treat me as another ‘boring visitor’ untill they have got used to my presence. Once the dog is at ease, the best results are often obtained.
Dog training is not essential but knowing sit and stay helps. We know a few tricks to help too so together we will make a great team.
Session fees are explained on my products page and I have a full range of products available from prints, digital images and wall art so you can spend as little or as much as you want to invest.
Remember, our pets are not with us long enough but a professional portrait will be there forever!
