PET PORTRAITS BY KERTO STUDIO

Kerto Studio in Winnersh, Wokingham is now offering pet portraits

All Kerto Studio’ creative photography sessions are tailor-made to suit you and your pets needs

The pet portrait sessions are bespoke, individually designed for your pet(s), because every pet has a different personality and needs. Pet photography sessions can take place either in Kerto Studio or your chosen location eg. at your favourite dog-walk. Our aim is to capture your pet’s personality in the best possible way so you receive images you love and could treasure for a lifetime. Should you prefer, this can also take place at your home or garden as older pets may prefer and appreciate secure surroundings and home comforts.

ON LOCATION PET PHOTOGRAPHY

During the location photography session, you and your pet will have a fun-filled experience whilst capturing their personality. The photo sessions are the creative part of the process, so with your help we will choose your pet’s favourite outdoor locations for this.

What does the session fee cover? It cover’s my expertise and time as a photographer to capture some of the most beautiful images you have ever seen of your pet. It will also cover the extensive editing process which happens in preparation for your final wall art.

IMPORTANT INFO REGARDING ALL SESSIONS

The rates are applicable for all sessions in Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Hampshire and Surrey, within 15 miles of Wokingham. Additional travel charge (at £0.40 p/mile) may occur outside these areas.

Kerto Studio offers a variety of premium printed artworks for displaying on your walls; also image boxes and albums for coffee table viewing. Your artworks and product orders are taken and paid for during your viewing and ordering session after your photoshoot.

As a guide, our clients invest anywhere between £250 – £3000 on their pet photography experience.

You will be able to view and touch all of the products at your viewing and ordering session. There is also a small number of samples available to look at on the products page here

The viewing and ordering appointment will take place about 1-2 weeks after your session. With studio sessions, you will be able to choose your favourites straight after the session.
Otherwise I will invite you back to my studio for choosing the images you would like to have printed. 

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 levels 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’ 🙂

For studio sessions, you will have a chance to look through the images right after your session, and you can also put an order in for any prints there and there. Alternatively, if you/we are pushed for time, or your pooch starts misbehaving, I will gladly invite you back in the studio at a more convenient day/time, so you can have a good look at all the images and the potential products you may like to purchase without any distractions 🙂

For on-location sessions, I will invite you to see your images in the studio about 1 week after your session. There is no pressure, (as I don’t believe in hard selling!) so this viewing and ordering appointment is created to serve you the best way possible. Many of my clients have mentioned just how helpful they find this service to be as they can see the size and touch materials of the products on offer ensuring they have made the correct decisions.

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.

For studio sessions, this is not a problem, however on-location sessions the session should ideally be re-scheduled as we want the best images of your dog(s) right?
