Hound Dog Photography
About The Artist
I grew up in the Heart of the Kent countryside in a beautiful village called Biddenden. Both my Great Grandparents and Grandparents owned farms in the village and I was lucky enough to spend most of my childhood outdoors with our Whippet Cross called Charlie.
There is an enviable bond between man and dog. It is one relationship however where you soon start to realise that you will outlive your closest friend and there will be a time when they are not by your side anymore.
In adult life I appreciate the bond between man and dog more than ever and love getting to know dogs and their owners, capturing the characters and bonds between them.
Looking back now there are a few tatty photos in my Mum’s album of Charlie, who lived until from when I was in nappies until I was 19. Like most people I look back wishing I had better photos of the friend I loved so much.
In June 2016, I was really proud to win Kennel Club Dog Photographer of the Year for my portrait work – over 13,000 people entered from 90 countries around the globe. I have also enjoyed a number of other awards within the photography industry this year.
I hope you enjoy looking at my work and we can share a walk or a run in the park together soon and create a picture of your friend for you to treasure.
“Kennel Club Dog Photographer of the Year”
After the recent win of Kennel Club Dog Photographer of the Year back in June, Jamie Morgan of Hound Dog Photography was interviewed on BBC South East Today on 31st October 2016 about the winning image, taken in the Ashdown Forest.
“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you
more than he loves himself.”
First and foremost, location based dog photo shoots are nothing like anything you may have experienced in a photo studio.
For me fields and woodlands are a natural location for dogs, perfect for showing off your dog’s breed and markings to capture your dog in action.
Every dog is different whether it’s Great Danes, Wolfhounds, Collies or Spaniels and all sorts of Labradors. Capturing your dog in an environment that matches its breed and characteristics is really important to me.
From lakes to mountains, heathland to beaches, even in the city, we can put together a unique session.
The photo shoot of your dog normally lasts around 45 minutes to an hour. During that time we will take your dog for a walk, giving me time to take some natural portraits before we start to have some fun whether this is running on the beach, chasing a ball, catching a frisbee, or jumping into the lake.
Location Day Sessions
Throughout the month I host a number of photo shoot days at locations that I’ve hand-picked because they are safe for your dog to be off the lead and I know the scenery is fantastic.
Your dog portrait session will be easy to access by car, I’ll pack the dog bowl, water and some treats, you just need to remember the dog and his favorite toy.
Appointments are pre-booked, with photo shoots available from 8 am to around 6pm on each day.
These sessions start from as little as £34, prices include an hour long photo session with Kennel Club Dog Photographer of the Year Jamie Morgan and a ordering session at our studio premises. Framed prints, hand made canvases and wall art items are all available to be seen and ordered from your ordering session.
You may already have the picture in your head that you would love to see on your wall. Whether you walk the same walk each day as the sun rises or your own farm-yard is the perfect location for a photograph, why not consider a bespoke session?
Together we will discuss the location, time of day and time of year for your perfect picture, right through to how we will present your pictures after the shoot. Our bespoke sessions take place at a time and location to suit your requirements.
These sessions start at £99 and include, travel time to your location within an hour and a half of our studio location, your 2 hour photo session with Kennel Club Dog Photographer of the Year Jamie Morgan and your ordering session at our studio premises or via an online gallery. Framed prints, hand made canvases, and wall art items are available to be seen and ordered from your ordering session.

“Once you have had a wonderful dog,
a life without one, is a life diminished.”
Getting your pictures right when we are out walking in the woods, or chasing seagulls on the beach is only a small part of the job. Whilst out on location, each image we make will be taken with the finished product in mind.
Once back in front of a computer, I’ll spend time finishing your images, removing any distractions and enhancing the key features to ensure your artwork is timeless.
The way your images look when they have been printed is so important to me, as many pet portraits are a one off purchase in the latter years of your dogs life, I’m really keen to make sure the product you hang on the wall really is built to last.
Whether your home is a traditional farmhouse or a modern design, I’ve selected a range of products from traditional framed prints, museum quality fine art canvasses, through to aluminum and acrylic panels; a range designed to suit every décor.
