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?
Our sessions cost £25 to book. We include a complimentary 8×6″ printed photograph.
Our products start from just £59. There’s no minimum spend, but to give you an idea, most people spend around £300 when they come back to see their pictures. But we are real believers in our pictures should do the talking, rather than a pushy sales session. Every person is different… and you aren’t every person, right? There… we got that out of the way!
As a small family run business we appreciate all your support during these difficult times. We’ve also had a difficult time with being closed for so long, so every penny you spend with us really means the world. We do kindly ask that you please keep that in mind when booking with us. Our products are competitively priced and we’ve done our best to bring a selection of quality products at reasonable prices.

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.
