WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE CAN OFFER
- JOE RILEY -
No-one approaches Dog Portrait Photography in quite the same way as Joe.
His vibrant and dynamic style is the product of over a decade of professional experience and development. His unorthodox techniques and hands-on approach ensures the pups have a fun, relaxed and playful photo session. Constantly engaging with the dogs, taking pictures as he goes, Joe captures their true character up close and personal. Joe has helped hundreds of families experience wonderful adventures with their dogs, leading to truly stunning and unique portraits that they will cherish forever.
Joe has worked as a professional photographer for well over a decade.
His formal study of photography started at high school in California. Shortly afterwards back in the UK,
he excelled at Photography A-level, leading to an honours degree in Photographic & Digital Media at the Cambridge School of Art (2006). He started his career working freelance for event photographers, covering motorcycle track days, horse trials and dog agility, before landing a job as a staff photographer with the North West Evening Mail, a regional daily paper based in the Lake District.
In the five years there he gained both the industry's NCTJ and NCE qualifications, enabling him to quickly rise to the level of senior photographer. This journalistic experience has produced a fully rounded photographer and videographer, who has continually taught himself many methods, specialising in
on-location flash and studio techniques.
Before starting Bounders Dog Photography, his work had already been published in multiple regional and national media publications including The Guardian, The Telegraph, Performance Bikes, and the BBC, and his commercial images have traveled the globe with brands such as Hawkshead Relish.
WHAT IS BOUNDERS?
Bounders Dog Photography was founded in 2015 when Joe was inspired to 'try something new' by his
Jack Russell puppy Scrooby....
- A FAMILY BUSINESS -
Behind every great man is an even greater woman,
and wife Debs joined the business following the birth of their daughter Jessica.
Jess has been brought up surrounded by her dad's artwork and she adores meeting all the puppies at shows and walks.
It comes as no surprise her first word was "dog"!
Starting a business and a family at the same time isn't really a smart idea, but that hasn't stopped them following their dream.
Now every working day revolves around the family, as the business grows from strength to strength.
It is more than just a company, this is our life, our passion,
and our love.
