Dog Photographer, Norfolk

Us, dog owners, are a funny old breed, there is nothing our best friend can do to upset us, and even if we do have to tell them off, 30 seconds later they are wagging their tail and your heart just melts away.

When you come home from work, who is the most pleased to see you, I bet I know the answer!

But doesn’t life move so quickly, one minute you are buying everything you can for your new puppy, you blink your eyes and that little pup is a teenager, you blink again and that teenager is now showing a few grey hairs and moving a little slower but still wagging their tail when you come home.

There is no question, the bond and the love you have for your dog is deep, so naturally, you only want the best for them, am I wrong?

In this age of instant digital gratification mobile phones are great but our expertise, in lighting, camera craft and artistic editing will capture all the character of your dog and produce a picture that you will cherish forever.

The trust and affection every dog gives its owner is unique, and it is truly amazing to experience in our dog photography studio. We quite simply have the best job in the world.

Norfolk Dog Photography Experience

We understand that when a dog is in a new environment, they need time to investigate it and become confident that the studio is safe. There are many new smells, a strange dog photographer who they have never met before, and some things that flash, which are all very new and need to be thoroughly checked out.

When your dog enters our studio there is a lick mat with some food on it, lots of treats scattered all over the studio and a nice bowl of water. While your dog is investigating, eating and drinking, well you might as well do the same. We have a range of complimentary hot and cold drinks and chocolate snacks so tuck in take a seat and chill out because we are in no hurry to get you out of the door.

Once your dog has calmed down and is comfortable with the studio, we will start to take some pictures, as we take the pictures you will see them displayed on a 42” screen. Once your dog starts to show some signs of getting tired we take a break, have another drink and review the pictures taken so far. We will then discuss what pictures you would like next, perhaps a family shoot, or your dog chasing bubbles or catching treats. We have a changing room, a makeup station and if you have a little one we also have a microwave should you want to heat up any food.

After the second session, we will then have another drink and it is now time to pick which pictures you would like us to edit. Customers normally narrow the pictures of the session down to around 90 then 60, then 40 and very slowly we get it down to that magical number but it takes time and again I am in no hurry.

You should allow 3 to 4 hours for your Dog Photography experience, so please do not be in hurry, as we have to operate at the pace of your dog, and they are only ready when they are ready and we are not going to force them to do anything they don’t want to.

Around 2 weeks after your session you will receive your edited pictures and all you have to do is select which pictures you would like printed.

At JBS Dog Photography we are all about quality and not quantity hence we provide a Dog Photography Experience and not a Dog Photography Session.

  • What an experience! From start to finish, Iris and I had so much fun! We felt so at ease with Jim, and his studio is amazing - your own piece of heaven where you can feel really special. Pictures definitely speak a thousand words and Jim really captures the moments that you’ll cherish forever. He’s a natural with dogs, even got Iris to smile! HIGHLY recommended and worth every penny x

  • OMG Amazing! We had a ball and had family shots too, how they managed to stay patient with a hyper dog and get him to stay focused on his own as well as get family in the photos too.
    Talented doesn't do it justice, such an amazing set up too and to be ale to walk away with a physical photo... more like 15 stars!!!

  • Jim was patient and understanding when my little dog got camera shy as she was terrified by the flash. He had some ingenious ways of getting her attention and helping her to settle. The result was some of the most amazing photos of her and I couldn't be happier with them.
    I cannot recommend JBS Dog photography enough, Check out their Facebook page and website to see the results, they really do speak for themselves. Brilliant simply brilliant.

  • We love our pictures! It was such a fun afternoon in the studio with Jim. Both he and the dog took to each other immediately and Jim was so patient with him. It was definitely hard to pick our favourites from the final shots which we got really quickly and just sum him up perfectly! Thank you Jim!

  • Fantastic quality photos. We had a lovely time having Bella photographed. Karl was really patient and gave her plenty of time to settle. It was really difficult to choose our favourite photos, there were so many great ones. The edited shots were sent to us so quickly too!

  • positive review Jim’s photographs are family portraits that you will want on proud display for a lifetime! These are artworks to be treasured. This is doggie portraiture. It might be too late to get in for a shoot before Fathers Day, but a voucher could be the start of a gift that keeps on giving,

  • positive review If your looking for someone to take some amazing photos of your pets, look no further, right from the initial meeting with JBS Dog Photography we knew they were the photographers for us. They couldn’t have made our time with them any more at ease, fun and professional. Ensuring nothing was too much trouble and taking an anything is possible approach to our dogs. They captured our dogs cheeky personalities perfectly; the lighting and angles were exceptional and the finish was spectacular. Both myself and my Wife wouldn’t choose anyone but JBS Dog Photography from now on. We cannot wait to work with you again and we will always recommend your services 😊

  • positive review What a fantastic experience!
    Lovely relaxed setting, totally professional and friendly service. It's so nice to deal with someone who puts the animals first. My dog was scared of the flash at first but Jim took time to allow her to settle and had some ingenious ways to get her attention, the result some totally awesome photos that really brought out the best in my girl. Can't thank him enough.
    If you want the best photo of your dog there is only one place to go.
