Your guide to the perfect shoot location
My aim is to provide you with stunning images of your most beloved best friend so that you can enjoy them for years to come. We both know, of course, that your furry friend is already stunning – so we need to put them into a setting that compliments their good looks!
In this guide you’ll find a selection of my favourite shoot locations around the midlands, along with some sample images from previous sessions held there. I’ve also included a handy breakdown of when they’re at their best and a pin in google maps so you can see how far they are from you!
I am, however, happy to shoot anywhere should you have your own location in mind (be that in the Midlands or elsewhere) – though I do ask for enough time to scope out any new locations prior to shooting to ensure they’re suitable.
Should you have any questions whatsoever please ask away at
Clowes Wood - Earlswood Solihull
An ancient woodland managed by Warwickshire wildlife trust that is gorgeous throughout the year, but particularly beautiful during autumn. We’ll capture your pup in action running along the woodland paths, playing peekaboo around the trees and posing amongst the leaves and long grasses.
In spring there are often bluebells and other wild flowers and in late summer
there are small pockets of heather too! Definitely one of my favourite places to
capture your woof in the woods.
Sutton Park - Sutton Coldfield
A 2,400 acre national nature reserve and SSSI. The park has a vast amount of varied scenery, ranging from woodland to wetland and pretty much everything in between – this variety makes it perfect for full photoshoots. The park is spectacular all year round, but particularly in late summer when the heather is in bloom so we can capture your pups pretty in pink!
Cannock Chase - Staffordshire
A designated area of outstanding natural beauty, which Cannock Chase certainly lives up to! This vast expanse of varied countryside makes a spectacular location for full photoshoots. Like Sutton park, it boasts most types of habitat and is beautiful throughout the year but is particularly beautiful in late summer due to the vast amounts of heather. In summer I do advise caution however, as the heathland is also home to the UK’s only venomous snake – the adder. With this in mind I usually ask owners to keep to the paths and keep pups on lead around the heathland areas particularly.
Millisons Wood - Meriden, near Coventry
Another glorious ancient woodland site, this one particularly famous for its bluebells. In April/May, the wood is blanketed with the luscious purple flowers (along with other wild flowers) and makes for some stunningly beautiful and colourful images! As the bluebells are precious, we try out best to keep to paths and not trample the flowers so that other visitors can continue to enjoy the colour while its there. Often the farmland around the woods is also used to grow oil seed rape, and we can also make use of this to create some awesome yellow based images too! Spring/early summer
Brandon Woods - Coventry
A nature reserve in the most unlikely of places! - Situated not far from Coombe Abbey along the A46, this nature reserve offers a variety of both ancient and pine woodland, meadows and farmland - a great location for a full shoot packed with variety. In Bluebell season this location doesn't disappoint, with literal seas of purple to capture your pet in! It makes for some amazing photos, yet another great place to capture your woof in the woodland!
The Lickey Hills Country Park - near Alvechurch.
A gorgeous woodland and heathland haven - With the option of deep and dark coniferous woodland or much more open and airy deciduous woodland, this country park has some amazing places to get some fabulous images of your dog. Easily accessible with ample parking and some lovely pubs just up the road, this location is great all year round.
