DOG PORTRAITS BLACKPOOL

BLACKPOOL DOG PORTRAITS

Working from my studio in Blackpool, I have been creating beautiful dog portraits for over 10 years now. I have done dog portraits of most dog breeds, from little pocket pooches like the Chihuahua through to the giant breeds, like Great Danes and New Foundlands. Many of my customers come to me wanting a lasting memory of their best friend, immortalised in either beautiful full colour or black and white, capturing the true character and minute detail of their adored pet.

Have a special memory or photo of your dog? Give me a call I will happily talk through how we can best capture this in a beautiful dog portrait that will evoke happy memories every time you look at your picture. A lot of my commissions have a unique element, whether that be your dogs favourite toy that needs including or a background reflecting a special place you used to walk your dog. Whatever your request, Im sure I will be able to accommodate your requests to create the perfect dog portrait for you.

    NOT SURE WHAT TYPE OF DOG PORTRAIT TO ORDER?

    DOG PORTRAIT – HEADSHOT

    This is my most popular style of dog portrait, a very crisp closeup of your dogs face. Its eyes wide looking at you with love and adoration. This style of dog portrait captures the essence of your dogs character and as its just the head also has an intense amount of detail. If you have multiple photos you would like me to combine thats fine, the more reference to work from the better. Just give me a quick call and we can talk through your exact requirements.  Please see prices/ordering page for full details

    FULL BODY SHOT

    The main thing to consider with a full body dog portrait is the size. The size really needs to be no smaller than 14×16 so I can capture enough detail for a photorealistic finish. A lot of full body dog portraits I have done are sat or laid outside, on the grass or set within a beautiful backdrop. As with all my dog portraits I can do it with our without a background, a lot of my customers prefer to have just the dog with no background so as to keep focus on the dog itself. Please see my gallery for other works

    ACTION SHOT

    These can be a great piece of artwork, a picture showing your dog jumping or running, maybe wrestling with its favourite toy. This type of dog portrait can reflect your dogs true character and put a smile on your face every time you see it. When trying to get the photograph for this type of picture its key to get it as clear as possible, due to the movement, as not all cameras will capture the subject in a still position mid movement. Most modern day smartphones are ideal for this type of photography as they have sports mode and slow movement settings that will capture the movement in a split second perfectly. .

    BLACK AND WHITE DOG PORTRAITS BLACKPOOL?

    Captured perfectly in graphite pencil, I can create a beautifully detailed dog portrait for you to enjoy forever. A black and white dog portrait is favoured and thought of as the more traditional type of drawing by a lot of people, simply down to the character and charm that black and white drawings offers. All my black and white dog portraits capture the most incredible amount of detail, creating an amazing photo realistic finish. Please see prices/order page full full details

    FULL COLOUR DOG PORTRAITS BLACKPOOL?

    A full colour portrait of your dog will be a lasting memory you will treasure. Created to any size you like from 6×8 up to 16×24, your full colour dog portrait will be a spectacular edition to your home. Capturing every tone, colour and detail, I will work to my signature style of a ‘photo-realistic finish’ that I guarantee to amaze you when finished.

    NOT SURE WHICH PHOTO TO USE FOR YOUR PET PORTRAIT

    This is a very difficult decision to make, as most dog owners I have met have literally hundreds of photos of their furry friend. From my point of view as an artist looking from a visual reference point of view, there are two important factors to always bare in mind when taking a photograph of your dog; 1 is to take the photo in natural daylight, this captures the true colour of your dog and allows me to do an accurate colour representation; the second is to ensure the picture is clear and well focused allowing me to pick up on every detail to give the artwork my signature ‘photo-realistic’ finish. If you are struggling to choose a favourite photo for me to use as reference for your dog portrait, simply give me a call, I will look at the photos you have and discuss the best composition for your dog portrait artwork. A few of my previous customers have had 2 different poses of their dog in the same artwork, maybe a detailed closeup of the head and then a smaller action shot in the background. This type of composition reflects two aspects of dogs character, the true beauty and the fun side in one piece. Please see photo guide for a full guide
