‘Chris is a true professional who really helps capture the moment. He’s patient, friendly and above all gets to understand you and what images you’d like taken with your pet. I’m very paranoid about having my photo taken but Chris was able to take a photo that not only flattered me but brought the best qualities out in the dogs that I walk. As a professional dog walker I needed someone who understood me, my business and could create some images that presented me well to my audience. I’ve already had lots of compliments about the photos he has taken and am extremely pleased with the end product. I’m proud to recommend Chris to all my friends, family and clients. Thank you Chris.’ Helen Eade, Social Paws Cheltenham, www.socialpawscheltenham.co.uk


‘Dear Chris, my mummy asked me to write a testimonial for you so that other dogs will get to have their photo taken like I did. I had a really nice time playing and running around when you were there and I didn’t feel nervous at all. You are really nice and I would like to have my photo taken again someday. And it’s really good now because there are pictures of me, IN FRAMES, all over the house and all the humans look at them and make ‘oooooo’ noises. I think that means they like the pictures of me. Bye for now.’ Esme xxx

‘Thanks Chris for the fantastic photos of Esme my beloved black labrador. You captured the very essence of her: her beautiful eyes, her vulnerability and beautiful soft coat, and also her sleek glossy strength and athleticism. When I opened the packet I burst into tears of joy. I adore the photos and enjoy seeing them framed on the wall. My friends and relatives are dog lovers and always remark on the one where you caught her on a rough fell in Lakeland, with a front foot lifted, ready to spring into action, with water dripping from her coat. I think it would be great to work with you again so that I capture Esme’s journey through her life.’ Julia Savory, Cumbria.


‘I have met Chris on a couple of occasions when he has come to my agility club to take some shots of the dogs in training. He has a genuine love of our four legged friends and gets to know them (and the owners!) before getting down on the ground to capture the action from the best angle. He is unobtrusive and the dogs have no fear jumping whilst Chris is there on the other side of the jump. In fact most of them smile for the camera! I made a specific request to Chris to take some shots of my boy Ziggy in the weave poles and I am thrilled with the results!’ Trish White, Gloucestershire.
