About Me

My name is Steve Cole (LRPS / LMPA) and I am an award winning professional dog photographer based in the county of Dorset, England.

With over thirty years’ experience in photography, my love of animals has eventually led me down the path of photographing dogs. I am a keen wildlife photographer, where patience is a virtue, and this works nicely when out on a session with a dog, as you can never predict how things will go. Recognising when a planned shot is not going to plan requires adaptability, which also crosses over into my work with dogs.

I firmly believe that a dog’s wellbeing is paramount, and have gained Diplomas in various aspects of Canine Behaviour. This allows me to better understand any signals being given by the dog during the sitting allowing me to adjust the session accordingly. I always aim to provide an experience which is of the finest quality whilst being enjoyable and fun to both dog and owner.

I am fully insured and a Qualified Professional with the Master Photographers Association, and have attained a Licentiate Qualification with the Master Photographers Association and the Royal Photographic Society in Dog Portraiture.


"We had a wonderful woodland photoshoot for my dog Darcy. The pictures are gorgeous and such high quality. Thank you, Steve."
