CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY PORTRAITS FOR PETS & THEIR FAMILIES
Dedicated to producing one image, one piece of contemporary art that will take pride of place on your wall.
Studio session is very popular, especially when you see the quality of prints. Can be shot in a number of ways but always with you in mind.
As with all sessions, planning is the key. At the consultation we discuss various background options and what best suit your decor. We then go into a session fully aware of what we wish to achieve. Studio sessions can be as simple as a plan black or white background or more detailed with furniture or props of your pets favourite toys. You can include your family or just have your pet. The options are open and designed to capture the personality of you and your pets. A series of shots is taken wi
Signature editions are for those looking to have a one off fine art piece on their walls. The session is shot with ONE single image in mind to produce an amazing and meaningful portrait of you and or your pets.

I’m delighted to provide this testimonial for Bowler and Pooch as a result of a photo shoot they did for me last year. Not only did they capture my dogs photographically but they cleverly captured their personalities and even their souls in the images they produced. Throughout the shoot photographer Tony was respectful and patient with their subjects bringing out the best in them. Post the shoot they couldn’t have been more helpful in providing proofs and advice on reproduction of the images which I consider to be a fine art representation of my precious hounds. If you are looking for true professionals you can’t go past Bowler and Pooch. "
I have taken my little Lea to Tony (Bowler and Pooch) for a number of shoots. I did the studio shoot and it was so fabulous I just had to go and do the Signature Edition shoot as well.
The images take pride of place in my home. I can not recommend Tony and his team highly enough.
NO MATTER THE VISION, PLANNING IS KEY.
We work with great love and inspiration. If you consider portraits as something more than a picture on a wall, join us.
I strive to provide you with the most creative and the highest quality fine-art print in Australia, and beyond. Fine art photography is my passion so you can be assured of 100% dedication and energy on my part to fulfil your expectations.
To do this it starts with a strong plan. Every person is an individual so too are our pets, and our goal is to bring that personality to life in a well crafted fine art piece that will last generations.
To achieve the very best outcomes, before your session, we have a short consultation where we sit down and discuss your goals and expectations such as style, your decor, what to wear, colours and much more so that you can be certain each step is planned and ultimately presents a beautiful piece of art as individual as you and your pets are.
If you are from out of state or planning on flying in, we can do the pre-session consultation over skype. But I cannot stress how important it is to take the time and effort to get the results.
Your session at Bowler and Pooch is the beginning of your journey in owning a magnificent photographic fine art piece of your beloved pet on your walls. Each session usually lasts between one and two hours. The photography session is all about creating an atmosphere for your pet to feel comfortable and relaxed so that we can capture the most amazing images possible. We allow plenty of time for your pet to become familiar with the photographer, the camera and our studio environment.
Your Role. We want your pet to look their best on the day, so prior to their session spend some time grooming them or take them to a professional groomer – you might even like to get them a nice new outfit so they’re all dressed up! Other than that, all you need to do is bring along their favourite toys and treats, and be in a happy, relaxed mood.
A week or so after the session shoot, we will organise a date to have you come into the studio for an hour or so the view the images and "artists choice edits" This is often an exciting time where you will see how the images have come up, tissues are on hand for the emotional ones and we even have some tea and macarons to make you enjoy the total experience.
After the initial viewing, its time to start making choices on your favourites and then final selections for your order.
The next step is what you have been waiting for the delivery

ACRYLIC FRAMES WALLS, In my opinion, these are my favourite.

Acrylic frames produce stunning results and well worth the costs in a high-quality piece that will last for generations.
