nigel ord-smith phodography – award winning dog photography

Our studio, The Coach House, is the perfect location for stunning portraits of your best friend, with a full working studio for timeless character portraits and outside fabulous open fields, an almost private drive, and a rustic ‘tin shed’ for the more relaxed, natural images. The best of both worlds!

From bounding, excitable labradors to quizzical collies and small but mighty terriers, Nigel is no stranger to dogs and dog handling, so there’s no need to worry if your best friend is over excitable, nervous or shy, as he’ll get them settled in their new surroundings, easing them in to the session so that you and your dog can relax and enjoy the experience.

With a lifelong passion for creating images, Nigel has many years photographic experience, and has been creating images of furry family members since 2010, and was awarded Pet Portrait Photographer of the Year for the Midlands by The British Institute of Professional Photography in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

The studio is one of the original studios to join the Xperience Group of studios, some 100 or so studios nationwide, and the first and longest standing 5* studio in the group. This rating is based on a number of factors including the quality of photography, the layout and cleanliness of the studio space and viewing room, the clarity and variety of prices, the range of products offered, and the quality of literature and branding which overall means that you will know exactly what kind of service to expect.
