PET COMMISSIONS WITH ANNIE BEE

"Some of my best leading men have been dogs and horses"


Elizabeth Taylor

For The Love Of A Horse


Lockdown!

Oh my goodness.....how much have we come to realise the utter JOY of having pets! Walking the dog. A morning hack. Or just curled up on the sofa with the cat! Our lockdowned company. Our best friends.

And every Best Friend needs a photo! A beautiful, timeless and classic portrait to last a lifetime.  And beyond. From a  Master Photographer who qualified as an Associate in this specific genre of photography.

Their beautiful session begins with a chat so you can tell me all about them. Over the phone. Over Zoom. Over a coffee. Over a glass of wine. And, without doubt, the first thing you will say is:-


"My Dog/Horse/Cat has never been in a studio and we'll NEVER get them to do this!"


Well - none of these little munchkins had been in a studio either ..... and every one of their corresponding humans thought  the same!

Yes....it might be chaos! But I've been doing this for over 30 years so whatever chaos you're bringing will be nothing new!!  And - most importantly - we have no time pressure . I only do one of these sessions a day. We can just take our time, drink tea, eat cake and chat whilst they settle. It will be worth it to see something beautiful on YOUR wall!

And afterwards all you have to do is choose exactly that - what you would love printed, on your wall or in your frame.

Sessions can either be done here at the studio at East Haddon or can also be arranged at a location of your choice subject to suitable facilities for lighting etc being available. This is ideal if you are on a yard, or based at kennels, and have multiple horses and/or dogs. Just ask and we can have a chat.




HOW MUCH DOES IT ALL COST?


Booking your pet commission is not quite the same as booking your family portrait session. If I am photographing all the family I can almost guarantee that you will want a LOT of images - people smiling. People not smiling. People together. People on their own.

A Pet Commission is SO very different. You may decide you just want ONE image ..... at 40" to hang on the wall!

As such I want you to pay for ONLY what you are having. So I charge a session fee that covers just the cost of producing your beautiful gallery - not just working with you on the day but also all post-production work. You are then entirely free to purchase as little - or as much - as you would love. There is absolutely no pressure. 

So your initial investment of £195 will include:-


Your pre-session consultation to discover EXACTLY what you would love and to work out a plan for achieving it!


Your session either in the studio or on location or a mix of both.

There is no time pressure for these sessions as we are totally 'pet-led' (and some pets will take longer to settle than others). However, expect to be with me for around an hour and a half and three hours. If you are taking part too please feel free to include up to three outfit changes.


All post production work to produce a stunning and beautifully edited portfolio of approximately 15 portraits from which you can choose your favorites. Your portraits will ALL be fully edited prior to your viewing so that you can see EXACTLY what you are getting. Headcollars/leads will have been removed. Stray hairs will have vanished. Your portraits will be shown a spectacular works of art ready for your to choose. No pressure. If you just want ONE portrait then that is absolutely fine.


This session is also available as an 'Arte Session'. This is a slightly shorter session to produce a smaller gallery of FIVE  images from which you can choose. This is PERFECT for clients who have seen a specific image in my gallery and know exactly what they wish to create as a piece of art!

Please note that there is a minimum order requirement of TWO images on all Arte sessions unless purchasing finished Wall Pieces.






THE A LA CARTE MENU

Any image purchased will include the matching digital file.


Printed Portraits

Any Size of Your choice up to 16x24 - £125 

Any Size Of Your Choice above 16x24 - POA

We create portraits - we do not sell paper! Feel free to have your chosen images at 6x4 or 16x24 for exactly the same price! You are purchasing the image - not the paper on which it is printed. And - incidentally - the paper, regardless of size, will be Fine Art Cotton Rag to give your finished portraits the feel, weight and look more akin to a painting than a photograph.
