FAQ

Why are your prices so Reasonable?

First of all, I believe that everyone should be able to afford good photography of themselves and their pets . . . without being herded into a mall. So, I’m offering several levels of photography, a basic package for $100, and more if you want more — including going with you when you walk your animal, say, on the beach. The $100 is basically a creative fee.

What do I get for my $100?

You get me to come out to your place so I can shoot your horses, your dog or a cat — even a pet pig or goat. Afterwards, I provide you with a range of images to choose from — available on a CD I provide you, and from that you can choose one that I will print for you. We can also matte and frame the photo.

Suppose I want More?

Easy, by paying a little more, I’ll give you whatever you want. I work by the hour or by the day, ranging from your backyard to the beach, or even into the woods if you’d like to get photos of you and your buddies hunting white tail.

Where do you Travel?

We travel anywhere, but for the basic price I’m willing to travel within 15 miles of my base in  Kittery, Maine. For greater distances, we need to talk about an extra fee. Feel free to e-mail me for additional information.

When are you Available?

Anytime, really, but I prefer working in the daytime, weekdays or weekends.

Do you have a Studio?

No, because I like the even light that comes down from the sun, preferring to shoot in the morning and mid-afternoon. If I had to build and support a studio, that would cost us all more money. But, most important, bringing an animal into a strange studio means he/she will be uncomfortable and we won’t be able to get good pictures.

Why should I Book with PAWS & PRINTS?

There are a whole range of reasons, starting with reasonable prices and my easy compatibility with animals . . . plus, you can view your photos at your leisure at our secure website (you have the password!), and then carefully decide how you want to proceed. Each photo is carefully edited before your viewing.

Do you charge Extra for Additional Pets?

Yes, the more pets there are, the more difficult it is to get them to stay put and “smile”. Additional pets will take more time, so we charge $25 per additional pet — and this automatically gets you an additional half hour.

What is the Booking Process?

We settle up when I first arrive after finalizing what you want to get done.  I will accept cash or a personal check.

Can you take a Photo of Me with My Pet?

A main focus of our photography is the pet and its person — you. So, of course you can be featured with your pet.

How Long do these Sessions Take?

Normally, I spend about an hour with you . . . but this is not cut and dried because all pets do not respond to a new face . . . and a camera, the same way. But, look, I’m flexible about this.

What if It’s Raining on My Appointment Day?

Simple, I check the weather forecast and we reschedule.
