HERITAGE PHOTO SESSIONS
THE FIRST LIMITED EDITION HERITAGE PHOTO SESSIONS
21-29 FEBRUARY 2020
I have received so many comments on how much people love my old masters style gundog images, so I’ve decided to make this experience available for everyone!
As these are Limited Edition sessions, the props ie. available items on the day may vary from what you see in the images here. One thing is for sure – there will always be hay involved, as that’s the essence of my Heritage Photo Sessions. There will also be a variety of vintage and antique items. On the day you will have the opportunity to choose what you’d like to include in your images. Please note that dead birds are not included by default but can be brought in by you if you’d like to add them.
The first opportunity of this experience is coming up very soon, 21-29 February.
What is included with your Heritage Experience
You will have a comfortable 2 hours at Kerto Studio, to make sure we capture your dog(s) at their best and allow you to get a nice variety of images you’ll be really happy with.

The viewing and ordering appointment will take place about 1-2 weeks after your photography session so we will agree a suitable time for you to come back to my studio for choosing the images you would like to purchase.
If you have a question which has not been covered above, then please get in touch and I will be only too happy to answer any other queries.
The short answer is, it’s completely up to you.
A bit longer answer is, depends on the breed! Some breeds can look better when groomed, but if you prefer them as they are, your pet is still the same your dear pet whether it’s groomed or not! 🙂
From my point of view – I prefer that dogs eyes are visible, the ayes are after all windows to their soul and I feel images will miss that special connections without the visible eyes.
Something else to remember: if you normally get your dog placed in a ‘pet’ clip by your groomers then I would advise this to be done around 3 to 4 weeks prior to the shoot – this will give you enough time so the clip marks will have grown out.
In case, your dog is a show dog and the breed trait requires to have hair over the face, then I am happy will work with that.
That’s the name of the game: some dogs are complete rebels and some are just angels – regardless of your dog’s obedience levels, all dogs are welcome and can be worked with!
‘Sit’, ‘stay’ and ‘down’ are good to have but certainly not essential and really not that important. Its nice if they can, but doesn’t really matter if they can’t or won’t!
Every dog can be nervous in an unfamiliar surrounding, so rest assured I will give each and every dog as much time and space as they need to get comfortable with the studio surroundings (if its a studio session you are interested in). For location sessions, for best outcome I recommend places where your dog is familiar with the surroundings and can relax. On the day we can just relax and just ‘go with their flow’ 🙂
I will invite you back to see and order your images in the studio about 1-2 weeks after your photo session. Many of my clients have mentioned just how helpful they find this appointment as they can see the size and touch materials of the products on offer ensuring they have made the correct decisions regarding the types and sizes of the products. There is no rush at the ordering appointment so please spare up to 1 hour for this.
I will send you a little information sheet after you have booked the session, it will explain everything in detail. But of course I am happy to answer any other questions you may have, so ask away! 🙂
Feel free to call me on 07772343339 for quicker response.
The example images shown here: the normal Heritage Photo session image, and the Signature Collection old masters style edit applied to the same image.
After your Heritage photo session, you will have a chance to commission me to turn your favourite image(s) into real artworks.
By applying my Signature Style old masters style edit, your images will look completely unique like old masters paintings. Every image will receive different edit, therefore there are no shortcuts to creating this type of artworks. I have been known to spend 30+ hours on one such image!!!
Your original images will be captured with 60MP camera – this offers incredibly detailed images, which can be printed just about to any size at mind-blowing resolution!
I will choose the background image(s) to best match your images, unless you have a favourite Signature Collection edit, in which case I am of course happy to create similar with your dogs.
COST: £195 per image
