Canine & Dog Show Photographer in the West Midlands, Shropshire & Staffordshire


Professional dog show & canine portrait photography. We cover Telford, Newport, Shrewsbury, Stafford, Market Drayton & surrounding areas


A Decent Exposure Photography & Media just love photographing dogs! That happy little face always makes us smile when we're looking through the photos after a shoot, whether it's a portrait session or a dog show! We've worked alongside a high quality kennel photographing everything from Crufts competitors to cross breeds with consistently beautiful results and also at a range of shows. As a dog owner myself I know how important it is to be patient and let them relax and be comfortable in their environment and have a good sniff around before the photography starts - I think they have a great time! Our sessions are great fun for everyone, with lots of variety to create some really memorable images. And we do bring our own squeaky toy of course which is a standard part of our canine photography kit.

Dog shows

For fun dog shows, we're fully insured with public liability cover of £5m, electrical testing and risk assessment documentation allowing us to work professionally and of course fully equipped for outdoor events with a big gazebo and water bowl so customers can browse while their dogs can get a bit of shade and a drink on a hot day. We're happy to take on commissions on the day of a show and we're very flexible to accommodate anyone who wants us to photograph their dog away from a showing ring - We recently introduced "doggy portraits" at fun dog shows against a studio backdrop with full flash lighting which is very popular and gives studio quality images. We print in three sizes and photos are provided in luxury card mounts with different colour choices, with a protective wrapping in sizes 6"x4", 9"x6" and 12"x8" - we also print key rings and fridge magnets.

As part of our service we provide an on line gallery on our web site on the evening of an event with a range of fully edited photos available as high quality prints up to size A1, canvases, digital downloads in a range of resolutions with immediate delivery and photo gifts.
