Mark has been creating breathtaking pet portraits since 2010 and offers the perfect secure studio environment to ensure that every image looks its best. With a wealth of experience of working with dogs of all shapes, sizes and tempraments, Mark believes that all our pets are part of the family and that they deserve beautiful photos too.

Having outgrown his previous premises, in 2016 Mark converted a stunning old barn and launched a brand-new pet portrait studio nestled in the beautiful Oxfordshire village of Milton Common. With easy access to main A roads and the M40, the studio is accessible from all corners of the UK.

Built rapport quickly with our dog (& us!) with the resulting photos being of high quality and composition.
If you’re looking for photos of your pet, give Mark a call – you won’t be disappointed.”
