How this works?
A portrait of your pet & entry in to our Top Pet competition
Includes: Pet portrait session by Graham (for 1 pet, more can be added), come back to see your pictures a week later on our big screen, your favourite picture printed as an 8×6″ print and £50 of credit to put towards any of our beautiful wall portraits
How it works
Your session will last around an hour and is the time to have some fun. Our studio is relaxed and friendly. Bring some props and a change of outfit with you to mix up your session.
After the session is over, you will be invited back for your viewing and ordering appointment to see your pictures on our large projection screen – usually a week later. You get to choose your favourites and plan where to show off your images.
A portrait isn’t a picture, it’s something that lasts forever. With our locally made products starting from as little as £59, there really isn’t an excuse not to make some memories! We offer a range of different products to suit all tastes and budgets, from digital images to frames to adorn your walls.
Our dedicated portrait studio is based in East Belfast at the historic former old Strand Spinning Mill, now known as Portview Trade Centre. We are just a five minute drive from Belfast City Centre and close to Ballyhackamore. We have free parking on-site. You can book your session online below using our self-service booking system or you can book over the phone by calling the studio on 02890 99 77 98.
Most Asked Questions
But my pet won’t sit!
Ok, let’s get the elephant in the room out of the way… or rather the dog or cat in the room! Most pets we photograph won’t sit perfectly for a portrait. Why? Because they are not people! But don’t worry… we’ve been doing this a long time and have a boat load of tricks we use to get great pictures of them. If you’re afraid they won’t sit give us a call to talk it through. Like your pet, we don’t bite! 🙂
But my pet is crazy!
The chances are they really aren’t that crazy! We’ve seen them all, trust me. Our studio is totally pet friendly. So, we don’t mind them running around, jumping on the sofa, making a coffee… That’s why we are a pet photography studio, we expect pets to be pets! PS: The humans however we expect to be on their best behaviour 😉
How much does it cost?
There isn’t a charge for your session – however we do take a refundable £25 deposit on booking – just to secure your date and to ensure you show. We will refund this to you when you come back to see your pictures… or you can put it towards any of our lovely products. Products start from £99. To give you an idea, most people who come in to see us spend around £300+, but there isn’t a hardsell and we aren’t pushy. You could leave just with your free print, but we are sure you will love the photos we take and be tempted to choose more. There, we got that out of the way! 😉

Bethany & Riley
Highly recommend Graham Crichton Photography. The studio is beautiful, clean and so well decorated there is even a water bowl at the ready to make sure your pet is comfortable at all times.
Our dog instantly took to Graham, who got down to his level and made sure to properly introduce himself! When it came down to photos our dog was very relaxed and we were able to make good use of all the props at disposal to ensure on the cutest pictures! I am so impressed with how the photos came out and can easily see why Graham has the reputation he does as they are something I am going to treasure for a lifetime.
To top off all of this Graham himself is so genuine and somehow manages to keep the jokes flowing all while taking these stunning photographs.
Niall & Ovie
We had an excellent time with Graham taking photos of our little pup Ovie. He was very professional in the current climate and also made it very enjoyable for all of us. We had a second session to review our photos and select our desired shots which was very difficult given the quality of all the images. A really enjoyable experience altogether and would highly recommend.
Debbie & Max
