Chris, Sarah & Master Dusty Photoshoot

Daniel Sutherst
4 Nov 2017

This Saturday was a long time coming, we had previously scheduled it twice but with torrential rain and gale force winds ruining our plans this was third time lucky!

Sarah, Dusty & Chris

Chris and Sarah wanted some images of their beloved Dusty, who is their 6yr old Shih-Poo, to print off and present to Sarah’s parents for their Christmas gift.

“After some doggy biscuits, one lost ball and a lot of laughs the end of the shoot was near but just on the walk back to the car there was a lovely bit of light”

We started the shoot early to beat the crowds and headed out on the blue marked trail to give Dusty (and us) a good workout!

There were still some lovely colours in the forest, despite the recent heavy winds, which gave a great contrast to the darker grey colours on Dusty’s coat.

Although the shoot was mainly of Master Dusty, I wanted to capture some moments for Chris and Sarah to cherish too so tried to be a little stealthy and grab some shots without them looking.

Dusty didn’t pay much attention to the stupid man with the camera (me) so getting his attention was tricky at first, but once he got used to me and with some doggy bribery he soon got the jist and posed for some great shots.

After some doggy biscuits, one lost ball and a lot of laughs the end of the shoot was near but just on the walk back to the car there was a lovely bit of light that offered some soft backlighting and created a beautiful blurred background. I spent a good fifteen minutes on my front firing off loads of fantastic shots that showed off the handsome chap.

After the shoot I was really pleased to have the Forestry Commission for England private message me on Instagram as they wanted to share one of my shots of Dusty to their page, which made Dusty the first famous doggy I’ve photographed 🙂

Sarah Bain reviewed on Facebook: “Absolutely fantastic and relaxed photo shoot with Dan for our little dog Dusty. Every single photo is fantastic and we couldn’t ask for more. Would highly recommend Dan to anyone. Photos are of such high quality and have captured our Dusty (& us) absolutely perfectly. Thank you again Dan.”

Friendly Relaxed Portrait Sessions

It brings me great pleasure when a client chooses me to capture images of their loved ones. I aim to provide a friendly and relaxed experience to all clients, which allows everyone to enjoy the photoshoot. The more relaxed you are with me behind the camera the more of your personality will show in the final images.

I have travelled to many different locations around the North East for photoshoots and just love working with new customers in different locations. All my packages include a shoot tailored to you, so if there is that one special location you have fond memories of then why not capture those memories.
