Don’t judge me before you know me (Rottweiler dog)
Type “Rottweilers are…” in to a Google search box and you’ll see what kind of suggestions come up
Sadly, many of the assumptions people make about specific breeds of dog are misinformed. Whatever the reason for this, Rottweiler dogs and owners experience a lot of prejudice simply because of their breed.
Valentine’s Day a different way
Way back in February not everyone was bowing to convention on romantic dates in expensive restaurants on Valentines Day…Bristol couple Sarah and Lance opted to have a photoshoot with their excitable golden retriever Boston.
We visited Vassals Park and had a whale of a time! Meeting and greeting new doggy friends along the way.
Boston Terrier in characterful design-led home
Ever since it opened in 2010 we’ve been big fans of Dig Haüshizzle, an interior design and decorative antiques shop in the centre of Bristol, run by a lovely couple Cass & Edd.
We were delighted to have the opportunity to photograph their pampered pooch Beecher in their characterful Clifton home.
A cat birthday party - yes, really!
We’ve been photographing cats for as long as we can remember, but since launching The Pet Collective in November 2015 we’ve really concentrated on producing consistently high quality stylish pet portrait photography, and of course that includes regular photoshoots for our own cats.
With Louie’s 3rd birthday earlier this week (21st March) it seemed like the…
A day in the life of a cat (Louie)
(Originally post from October 2013)

Life transformation for silver tabby Bjork
Silver tabby Bjork had a rather sad start to life. A breeder sold her to a couple in Scotland who, despite good intentions, had not prepared themselves for cat ownership.
They worked away from home a lot and would regularly leave Bjork (as a kitten) home alone with a week’s worth of food, and…
Holly Hedge heartbreakers “take me home!”
We offer our photography services on a voluntary basis to Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary, scheduling regular visits in our spare time to ensure the little kitties stand their best chance at getting noticed and then adopted by providing pictures to share across Holly Hedge’s social media
It’s a strange thing when you volunteer…
Ponyo: the miniature pinscher
When we initially booked this shoot the name “miniature pinscher” was kind of a giveaway that it would be a small breed we’d be photographing, but nothing prepared me for just how dinky this little fella was! Before you ask, he’s fully grown, certainly no puppy.
We headed out to St…
How should I greet a cat?
Cats have a set of social rules by which they live, rules which must be adhered to if you plan to share a happy relationship. On one hand (paw?) they’re pretty simple, but on the other they’re also pretty complicated
These rules of communication apply to all “unknown beings” whether human or feline.
How can I control my dog’s barking?
Barking is a natural way for a dog to communicate, much like a human talking. Dogs bark for a variety of reasons including (but not limited to) play, communicating with puppies, as a greeting for humans, or while distressed/asking for help.
