"At the lowest end of pet photography are the hordes of high street studios churning out very similar pictures to make you yawn and forget. At the very top end is Paul Walker, a highly talented 'one off' original who squeezes every last drop of talent and effort into his pictures which are alive, exciting, memorable, and as good as you get." John Drysdale, author of "Our Peaceable Kingdom"

"Love your site, keep up the good work" US soul singer, Billy Paul

"Wow! As someone who has a great appreciation for what it takes to take great photos of dogs, I must say that this is absolutely the best I've seen! Congrats on a job well done", US Photographer, Bambi Cantrell

"Paul captured the individual characters of Molly and Matilda perfectly. He has a real understanding of dogs, and knows how to get the most dramatic action shots ever!" Jo Good and Anna Webb, Barking at the Moon, BBC London & Stars of Sky Television's "A Different Breed"

As professional photographers - with a pet photography brand, too - it was not difficult to decide who should take photographs of our Patterdale terrier, Bruce. It's true we could take endless photographs of Bruce ourselves, but there's something fascinating about how another photographer interprets you and your family or, in our case, our beloved dog. We travelled up to Ayr for the shoot and had great fun - it was great to leave the technical stuff in Paul's very capable hands and enjoy the shoot itself. We have a rescue dog who is anxious with strangers and, having told Paul about his temperament, Paul was excellent at putting Bruce at ease. He knew exactly how to handle Bruce and, in the end, I found myself so proud of how Bruce had behaved - even though it was all down to Paul's excellent manner. The resulting photographs were wonderful - and it is hard to please a fellow photographer who scrutinises every inch of a photograph! We are thrilled to bits, delighted with how Paul has captured Bruce - and us in some of them - and would recommend Paul wholeheartedly. Thanks Paul for a great day, a fabulous set of images and your patience with our pup!

We have just spent a fantastic morning with Paul at home and on the beach. The photos are fantastic I wish you could see them. They caught Blues personality to a tea. Paul has the patience of a saint, to achieve the results he did.

I'd highly recommend Paul's work. We now have some fabulous photos of our cats/dogs to keep forever! The actual experience was enjoyable too! Thanks Paul

Great work I love how you were able to freeze the action in several of the shots I suspect that you must be busy. That is a good thing in the business of photography.

Just viewed for the first time the photos of Poppy and Gyppo. I honestly never thought you would be able to overcome Poppy's timid nature. Your patience is amazing but you did it, the result being a lovely set of prints to choose from. Thanks from Janette and myself Paul.

Paul, Thanks for our photos of Sonny and Murphy, we are absolutely over the moon with them. We gave you a real challenge with Murphy as he moves so fast and we are astounded that you managed to capture such great photos. Sonny's photos were also outstanding, you really have exceeded our expectations and we will treasure these pictures forever. Our dogs are very precious to us and you were amazing with them - thanks again.

Just looked at the pictures taken of Murphy, they look amazing!! We had a great time at the shoot...but not as much fun as Murphy did! We cant thank you enough Paul for getting such fab pics of our slightly mad Great Dane.

Can't thank you enough for the photos! You did a great job keeping track off all of the dogs who had a great time at the beach and the photos are just fantastic.
Posted by Amanda and leanne on
The pictures are fantastic, especially liked the beach ones, we didnt realise how much work was involved (or patience needed, on your side) but you really captured the real zac and caia!! cant wait to see them up on the wall, they'll certainly bring a smile (or 5!!) to us, many thanks for a great day and some treasured memories.

We had a 7 hour round trip to get our dogs photographed. We had a fantastic day out with our dogs, Paul, you were so good with the dogs even though they werent really very well behaved and it poured with rain most of the day. We love the pictures as do our partners and the hard job of picking our favourites is still going on. Thanks for a special day and some cracking pictures too.

Many thanks for your commitment tonight at Whitfield Farm Livery Dog Agility Competition. Taking photos for three hours, on your knees in damp sand, only to be mugged by a Labrador. Many thanks, you are a true professional.

Paul what can I say your professionalism really shows in your work. Bobs and I had a wonderful time doing the shots and the pictures really capture him at his best. Thank you ever so much you truly are gifted when it comes to animal photography. The advice you have given me will enable me to pick pictures that Duncan and I will keep forever. We would like to wish you every success with the book when it is released and we will be sure to buy a copy. Thank you so much Allison, Duncan and Bobs xxx

Thank you paul for the fantastic images you took of my cats. You just seemed to capture their personality perfectly! Im so glad you photographed them when you did as you caught them in their prime. Now that Alfie has passed away, i will treasure every photograph you took of him.Thanks also for the blog message. It still makes me cry!

Paul, tbanks for all your patience with Rogie.... Old age doesn't come on its own and sadly he got selective hearing and stuborness all at the same time!!! The end result made it all worth while though. Only one problem left..... Trying to pick which ones to have, narrowed it down from 27 to 25 so far..... Will be in touch, thanks again, Jane and Rogie XX

Hi Paul,
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the wonderful day at Greenan this week. It was so much fun and Lucy and Kayla absolutely loved running about and posing, they were so tired they slept all afternoon
Posted by Sharon Yule on
Thanks Paul for the fabulous pictures of our persians, Bowie and Ramsay. We are delighted with them and Craig forgives Bowie for sitting on his speakers. The hard part now is choosing which ones we want. You were so patient with them and have made a friend for life in Ramsay. Thanks again, will be in touch very soon.

Just received the most beautiful gift for xmas from my mother - a portrait of Murphy - I absolutely adore it and the accompanying book. Your photographs brought tears to my eyes as the pictures show him for the fun loving, crazy boy he is. Thank you so much as I believe there was a cocky litlle scottie on the loose that day too!!!!

Posted by Sharon Turner on
Just seen the photos that Paul took of Beau and what can i say? they are better than i could of ever imagined! Paul has captured Beau's personality to a tee and at the same time she had a ball. Considering we came so close to losing her only a few weeks before she now looks amazing! We now have pictures of her that we can cherish forever, the only hard part is deciding which ones to get printed off! Once again big thank you's to Paul and his wife Catherine for fitting Beau in at such short notice and going out of there way for the shoot.

Hi Paul, wanted you to know that we thoroughly enjoyed your seminar and now looking forward to buying your book and the other two that you recommended. I guess its then off to the park with camera in hand to find some dogsto practice on. Bit of a change to weddings! We look forward to seeing you next S.W.P.P
Posted by Hayley and Ewen on
Hi Paul! After picking up Milly's photos today, we just wanted to let you know that we love them all, they are perfect and worth every single penny. You have captured her personality so well, and have actually made her look well behaved! They really are wonderful, you have exceeded our expectations ten fold. We may be slightly biased because she's our dog, but we think they're the best photos we've ever seen, they could be straight out of a book or magazine. We've been showing them to people all day and they have all agreed that they're amazing - lots of 'wow' and 'ahh' sounds were being made! The photos will be getting pride of place, and we'll be recommending you to anyone who'll listen. We just wish we'd found you when she was still a puppy! We'll be making up for lost time though - we're already talking about getting some more done in the summer! Thanks again!

My name is Sylvie and this is a little note from me on April's Pet Photography Course that I attended.
Dear All, you may have already warmed to Paul after seeing his so unique photographs and maybe perhaps, he became your daily inspiration like it happened for me. However, I have to say, this is just a thin thin slice of what there is. The course itself was invaluable to me with so much food for thought and making my mind marvellously clear and refocused. Nevertheless, I highly doubt I would feel that way if not for Paul. He is so easy to be around; so genuine and honest. A kind of teacher that you look up to and respect and still feel very comfortable with. He would praise but not patronise; he would point out what doesn't work, but also show you how to improve it (in his humble opinion); he would motivate and not just say: everything will be fine; he would confirm it to you that it will indeed be hard and difficult, but also so rewarding and satisfying when you achieve what you aimed at.

Just seen the photos of our beautiful greyhound Sal and they are absoloutely gorgeous - I have to confess they brought a tear to my eye (a fact my husband hasn't stoppped slagging me off for!). I think the most important thing is that they capture her personality perfectly - the soulful (slightly gormless) expression and the ubiquitous one ear up, one ear down. You have made choosing a really difficult job!
Posted by Judy on
Paul, what a pleasure it was to meet the man behind these awesome pet photos! I had a wonderful time at your workshop, learning and laughing, you've got a great sense of humor! I hope you enjoyed your visit to the United States and return for another workshop, I'd love to do it again.
Posted by Vivian Lanzarone on
Hi Paul, Thank you so much for choosing Space... for your very first Pet Seminar in the USA! I can only hope it was as wonderful of an experience for you as it was for us to have you here. Your cute and whitty personality made it such fun and most important what a great learning experience. I completely admire how important your pets safety and well being are always put first. I made a joke to you about you being an animal whisper and you laughed, but I truley believe you have a special sense with amimals, it must be why your work is absolutley amazing! Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us and I would reccomend to anyone who has any pet photography interest, personally or professionally to take your workshop! Cheers and take Care of yourself - Vivian
Posted by Ulysses on
Paul, what a pure pleasure it was to attend your first workshop here in the USA. I have no doubt that many others on this side of the pond will enjoy your future workshops and seminars. I think one of the most valuable things I learned was to "listen" to what the pet is "telling" you. Although it's easier said than done --- their expressions and signals pass by in mere 10ths of a second! --- I was so glad to have your help and guidance in exploring a completely new field of photography. I can easily see why you're so deserving of the accolades and awards from your fellows there in Scotland and the UK.
Thanks, once again for an enjoyable experience!

Thank you so much for spending hours taking endless photos of my dogs, which has resulted in the most fabulous collection. My biggest problem now is deciding which to choose, although family and friends have already suggested purchasing some for me as Christmas presents! Your genuine love of animals enhances your skills in photography, and the results are truly incredible. I shall be recommending you to all my friends. Thank you again.

Thanks Paul for a very wet, but fantastic shoot of the dogs! Glad that we braved the weather as pics turned out good. A mixture of muddy fun pics and beautiful portraits made it sooo hard to choose the pics to print! Wish you all the best Paul!

I think to photograph pets as you do you need a special bond with them and you have got it, all of the photos are showing a happy happy dog or cat. If an animal feels safe with you they will do what you ask them to do.i am disabled amauteur -photographer.
