Easy steps to getting the amazing images your dog deserves!

Step 1
Show your interest - it's straightforward and easy. Just pick a date or specify a deadline, tell Alan a bit about your subject, and your location. We'll take it from there...
Step 2
At this stage, Alan will conduct a complimentary consultation with you to understand and consolidate your ideas into one or several distinct concepts. This is where we'll talk about locations, schedules, and dates, aligning on the end goals before progressing to the next steps...
Step 3
Creation now unfolds. This could be a single portrait session with you or your chosen subject, or an extensive journey spanning months of individual photo shoots, styling, and more, all to bring the vision from our consultation to life. This phase includes meticulous retouching and post-production, where countless hours are dedicated to refining every detail of the piece, crafting an iconic work of art. Following the creation phase, we then transition into...
Step 4
The Reveal. In this exciting phase, we meet again, either in person or virtually, to unveil the masterpieces crafted in step 3. This moment often marks the first time you'll see the elements from the creation process in their final, stunning form.
Step 5
In this step, your artwork is entrusted to my expert printing partner in the North East. Here, they meticulously hand-print, varnish, craft, and frame your piece to meet my precise standards, all upon your request. The artwork is then carefully packaged and shipped to me in Staffordshire. After a thorough inspection to ensure perfection, I personally deliver this masterpiece right to your doorstep.
