Here are just some of my dog photoshoots in more detail with more great images, some before and afters and some behind the scenes. Its just not possible to have all the information on every shoot so delve in and see whats there!
There seems to be different ways of spelling Chihuahua, at least searching Google for Chiwowa or Chiwawa.
No matter how you spell it, you end up looking at beautiful pictures of the worlds most famous small Toy dog.
Let me introduce you to the most beautiful Bam Bam. Her owner came to the studio after receiving a gift voucher and I am so glad she did. Bam Bam was a heart stealer, so well behaved and loving we took some classic photos.
Small dogs can be so loving and often so much easier to look after, this little beauty arrived in her own little carry bag! Perfection!
Photographing black and white dogs together can pose many technical questions to a professional and its almost impossible to get great results on a typical phone camera.
We soon got a grip on it at my studio with Maverick, a beautiful black Cockerpoo and Monty his handsome Bichon partner.
With careful lighting and great post-production I was able to offer their owner some incredible pictures and some hard choices to make.
Lola is a beautiful Pomeranian with a natural hairstyle and what about these adorable colours!
Lola came for her photoshoot with here owners who were keen on a group dog photograph which we gladly obliged.
Lola traveled to the studio from Knutsford, Cheshire on a cold & wet December afternoon but soon warmed up the studio with her charming personality
Magik & Biscuit are 2 wonderful dogs that were sneaked into the studio for a secret photoshoot so the resulting images could be gifted as a Christmas present for their human Dad.
Shot in a dark and moody style you will only get the best from these pictures when they are enlarged

Ivy is a 2 year old Retriever, well behaved (most of the time) and she naturally knew how to hold a pose.
We seemed to cram a lot of different styles of photos into our one hour session on a damp and chilly November morning.
Ivy had fun in the woods, found a few puddles and finished off with a run or two which were all captured by my trusty camera.
Beautiful little Mikey is a Morkie with his on Facebook page and is a little star!
A Morkie is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the Maltese and the Yorkshire Terrier dog breeds.
Mikey had all the swagger of Britains Next Top Model and loved to dress up and pose for the camera.
I met Coco the Whippet in Lilford Park Woods in September with his 2 loving owners who adore her.
We spent a good hour in various locations and took lots of pictures. We spent half our time looking for the prized running dog image!
More details of this dog photoshoot are covered in my blog post, click here
Enzo rocked up to Atherton Photography Studio like a true superstar after a short drive from his home in Preston.
Full of energy and inquisitive he soon settled down for a studio dog portrait session and gave me some stunning results including a wonderful picture with his owner too.
Black on grey and black on black give timeless monochromatic portraits that will last a lifetime.
We wanted a mixture of poses and running dog images with Bertie earlier this year. We were lucky to get a dry day and went to Leigh loaded with cameras and treats.
2 people are required for a running dog photoshoot and we were lucky to get the owner’s wish, with both ears up on a gallop!
This photoshoot was a Christmas gift voucher present and a welcome surprise for the owner who was overjoyed with the results.
Bertie travelled up from Bramall for his photoshoot and really loved the fields of Lilford Woods in Leigh.
Photographing four dogs together can be a challenge. However, with the right help, miracles can happen.
These four beautiful dogs are my family dogs, Olly the white Pappillion is 7 years old now and the oldest.
Benji & Beau, the 2 Yorkshire Terriers are 3 and 2 respectively and the biggest dog is the youngest, that’s Teddy the Lhasa apso at 1 year old.
The last image in this set is just the same as the first, however, AI has been used to change the background to a barn!
Biscuit is possibly one of the most energetic dogs visiting Atherton Photography Studio. It took lots of patience and treats but we managed it! With her beautiful colour, I decided that the traditional black backdrop would help her colours stand out, and they did.
The early summer weather was just perfect for Chester whose owners wanted some running shots with ears up.
Running shots of dogs can be difficult and almost impossible if you don’t have the right equipment which means a fast lens and camera.
Even taking bursts of 10 shots a second, getting a picture with the ears in the right position does need a certain amount of luck too!
I cannot lie, these are my beautiful dogs, all 4 of them.
They are not always this clean and tidy.
With 2 Yorkshire Terriers. a Lasa Apso and a Pappion, I will never need a doorbell!
If you have more than one dog we can do individual shots and a group shot, it takes time and patience but it’s well worth the results.

Early February weather will never put off a keen photographer and the owner of many Shiba dogs. On this occasion, we shot with 3 of the owner’s 6 dogs and what a pleasure it was.
Dressed for the zero degree temperature the dogs performed well against the diminishing Autumn colors that were giving way to the early break of Spring.
Every now and again there is a story that touches your heart.
This is Loki a 3-legged Pug and cancer survivor. Still, after many trips to the vets and countless operations, he is such a loving and beautiful boy.
He was a pleasure to work with and I fell in love with him…
Photoshoots with puppies outdoors can be a challenge.
Every now and again you have a dream photo session and the hardest part is picking the photographs afterwards. These are just 3 of the 12 images chosen by her owner.
This was my second photoshoot with Penny approx a year after the first one. What a transformation. From an inquisitive little puppy to a beautiful and well-behaved (well-trained) dog.
This second shoot was diverted to the studio due to bad weather.
A credit to her owner who just so happens to be a dog groomer, little wonder she is so shiny and clean.
A photoshoot with your dog is very much a family affair. Dog and owner photoshoots are very popular and gift you a treasured memory forever and even a priceless picture for the wall or desktop.
Billy is a female puppy Maltese x Bichon Frisé who had a beautiful temperament and an equally beautiful white coat with a hint of champagne peach in her ears.
James brought 9-week-old Teddy into the studio for a first photo shoot for a puppy and owner session.
4 weeks later he came back and we photographed him in the studio on a black background to show off his colours. It was partway through when he pretended to be a lion.
I did a double photoshoot with Bruno in the studio and in the local woods at Leigh. This gentle giant of a dog has the look of a small bear and just loves to cuddle.
Estrella Mountain Dogs are large, powerful, and agile livestock guardian dogs originating from Portugal. They are loyal, protective, and independent, with a thick white coat and a strong work ethic.
I also did a special high contrast black and white picture which turned out fab.
With a quick walk around the beautiful setting in Leigh WN7. Kia knew how to strike a pose.
The Autumn leaves gave a natural orange glow she certainly stood out and shone. Was she tired? Not a chance.
Tia is a typical loving German Shepherd that never runs out of energy.
I travelled to the clients town near Chorley and found a nice open space in a local park with a tree area at one end. When no one else was around she was let off her lead and continued to run and run.
We went for a walk and…. see more
Its always lovely when an owner brings a dog to the studio that is much more than a pet. To Sharon, her dog Teddy is a companion who she rescued and has looked after lovingly ever since.
It was easy to see that they adored each other.
