Forthglade cat & dog food advertising campaign

Forthglade is an established and trusted household brand of UK-produced natural pet food for happy and healthy pets, catering for both discerning dogs and cultured cats. 

During the summer of 2015 The Pet Collective was commissioned to shoot a series of photos for the autumn launch of Forthglade’s brand new website.

Split over 3 days of shooting we covered a varied selection of indoor and outdoor locations in the city of Bristol, a beautiful beach in Devon and the wild countryside of Dartmoor.

Based in Devon, Forthglade were also keen to include some scenic landscapes of this picturesque part of South-West England.

We had a fabulous choice of photogenic animals, from beautiful Persian pedigree cats to pugs, boxers and faithful labradors. It was a real treat to work with such lovely little models.

The Pet Collective HQ even featured in the first set of photos, with our confident and experienced in-house moggie models Charlie (tabby) and Louie (grey) strutting their stuff.

Bristol-based award winning design agency Green Chameleon were chosen to construct Forthglade’s stunning new website. I know a lot of hard work went into this website and web shop from everyone involved and it’s a delight to see just how well it’s turned out and makes us smile seeing our photos advertising such a tasty product (according to the cats, not us!)

Take a peek at the full site in all its glory:

This little fella, on the other hand, was not smiling for anyone! 

He might be grumpy but he’s still gorgeous, don’t you think?
