What Our Clients Say
I enlisted Robert for his 'photography training' services and I couldn't be happier with what he offered and what I achieved during my time with him. Robert was incredibly professional, his course was very well structured and he never left any stone unturned. For those who want to learn and are ready for the fast pace of the content Robert does deliver. Highly Recommended! Robert is very responsive and professional and as per his portfolio a real expert with the artistic 'eye' for photography few can emulate in this area....

I had a fantastic experience using Rob Ashton Pet Photography. There is no hard sell and he is very flexible and patient during the actual shoot. His experience shines through in the amazing photo results. His partner is also lovely and very patient whilst choosing pics! The finished canvas I ordered is stunning. Communication is also excellent throughout from initial enquiry to receiving your prints. I would highly recommend this company for special memories of your wonderful pets!

Fabulous process with both my dog and cat with both my children and I assisting so it felt like a real family project, culminating in an amazing canvas we all love.Rob was very patient and gave clear, concise instructions so we all knew what to do.The canvas makes me smile every time I see it. It has pride of place on the kitchen wall. 🥰🐾

Over the moon with my print. My dog was so good and is only 1 year old so didnt think he would be. Very professional and the pictures were so good.

Rob came to the house for a photo shoot with our 3 spaniels. He was very patient with them as they are 13 years old, 8 years and a 4 month old puppy with varying degrees of concentration. Rob was here for over 5 hours until we were happy with the results. His tactics at keeping their attention was great fun for us allWithin a short time he sent us digital images and then our problems began as we had to choose from many high quality images.When we eventually chose which images we wanted Rob quickly fulfilled our order and we are thrilled with the results and would recommend Rob highly.

I cannot explain how overjoyed I am with my finished print of my lovely Dolly and Cooper. Rob was brilliant from start to finish plus extremely patient with my two very lively Jack Russell’s. I would not hesitate to recommend Rob for all of your pet photographs. He really does capture your pets character in a picture. Thank you.

I saw Robert's work in the press a while ago and thought the photographs were fantastic so when we decided to have some pictures taken of our dog, I immediately thought of him. It is very difficult to get our dog to sit still but Robert's skill and experience ensured that we got some fantastic shots. I was also very impressed at the way the shoot was organised ensuring that the pets do not get restless. I cannot recommend Robert highly enough, thank you!

After researching for a pet photographer in my area I came across Rob’s page. I loved the style of his photos as I noticed he captured real quality moments and character of each animal. I contacted Rob and he got back to me straight away. The next day Rob came to my house and we completed the photo shoot. Rob is very friendly and professional and his love for animals is class. I had the picture done for a present for my partner. When my partner opened his wrapped picture of our dog, my partner was brought to tears (of joy) he captured the perfect picture of Nelly. Thank you again Rob for your time, patience, expertises, and speed of the final product. We love our picture and hugely recommend Rob.... what a lovely experience it was and a huge pleasure to meet you.Melissa Turner x

Absolutely brilliant, was extremely patient with our dogs (who are not the calmest!) and we still managed to get some absolutely beautiful shots of them. Would highly recommend Robert to anyone who wants a professional shoot of their beloved pets

Great photos of my miniature poodle. Being a black dog it is hard to get a good photo of him. Extremely pleased with photos, would definitely recommend.

Had a great time at the photoshoot with Rob at my local vets. We took my cat Dixie to get some photos done and although cats aren't the most cooperative, Rob remained calm and professional throughout. He was very patient with Dixie and caught some beautiful shots of her which we absolutely loved. I can't recommend Rob enough!

I can't recommend Rob highly enough. I have been wanting to get a portrait of my Staffy for quite some time now but to say she is boisterous would be an understatement. She will not sit still for a second so I was doubtful that Rob would be able to get any good shots. How wrong I was. I eventually chose this one as a present for my husband and we are both absolutely delighted with it.

Rob is fantastic, I came to him with the unusual idea of wrapping my dog van with images of my 4 dogs. Rob jumped at the opportunity and quickly booked me in for a photoshoot at his studio. My dogs each have their own issues but Rob was great at making them feel welcome, and working around their nerviousness. After the shoot, we worked with his re-toucher to perfect and size the images for printing on my van. Rob, being the perfectionist he is project managed everything including dealing with the 3rd party sign writer. The final result looks great and i couldn't be happier. I have and will continue to recomend Rob at the various competitons I attend. Thanks, Nathan.

Fantastic service. I wanted a professional shot done of my two greyhounds. Working with two dogs that are not used to a situation like this is quite challenging but Robert was very patient and put my dogs well being first throughout. I absolutely love the finished product, it's exactly what I wanted and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Will definitely use his services again when needed.

Well, I don't think there are enough words to describe how happy my daughter was with her pictures of Rex & Charlie! They are both reactive, rescue German Shepherds and yet Robert and his wife managed to make them feel really relaxed and took the most amazing photo's she could have hoped for. Now we have a lasting memory of our dogs which completely captured their character. We would absolutely recommend Robert and we will definitely be using him again in the future.

We have just picked our portrait up of Morgan no words can express how pleased we are with the finished product. When we arrived to have Morgan's picture taken I didn't anticipate the care ,devotion , patience and professional attitude Rob would give towards both Morgan and ourselves . Every single frame we had taken was to perfection . I would 100% recommend anyone to give Rob a try you will not be disappointed . Thank you so much Rob it's a portrait in a million .

Rob was amazing when I took my dog and cat for a photo shoot. It could have been really complicated but the results were brilliant. Wonderful photos of Hope, my dog and Fernando, my cat, but what was great was that Rob was able to take one of them both together. I had wanted one of them for so long and he made it surprisingly easy. A great pet photographer. Thank you Rob, have already recommended you to friends who love the results of my photos.

We have had two pet portraits done now by Robert, and they are truly stunning. Partly down to our cats Smokie and Meg being very well behaved and staying still for the camera! Robert knows how to capture their personalities and gave us plenty of beautiful shots to choose from.

Absolutely brilliant photographer, took some great photo's of my dog Blue actually sitting still, which isn't an easy task to do. Very patient, understanding and lovely gentleman. Highly recommend him if you want professional photographs of your pets.

Fantastic experience, Robert made the shoot fun, enjoyable and easy for Robbie, who we cannot get to sit still for any amount of time. We have ended up with lots of great shots of Robbie. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting that perfect shot of their furbabies.

Very professional, very skilled photography. The best part of the whole morning though was Robert’s concern over my dog Finlay. He was constantly making sure he (Finlay) felt safe and secure and was always happy and comfortable. Huge thanks Robert and a full recommendation to anyone as the outdoor shots we did at Lyme park are terrific!

We had a really good day with Robert. We went to a local country park. Robert was very relaxed and patient. He explained the best positions for Izzie to be in so that he could get some good shots, he took his time and ensured that she was happy and relaxed.The photos he produced were stunning, truely capturing the essence of Izzie.

Rob was a fantastic help with my dog Photography. I am just starting out my own business and he not only helped me with technical advice but also gave me great tips on the business side. I highly recommend him and certainly will be going back again!

Thank you very much for the photography session which we had with you and our beloved poodle, 'Thomas'.We thoroughly enjoyed the photo session. Your natural calmness put us all at ease from the start. We knew that we would have some great photos from the minute that you took the first picture. The anticipation that he showed made such a great picture, anybody who has a Poodle will know that they can become incessant in their pursuit of a ball, stick or Frisbee!A true professional who knows his job!Thanks you!Russ, Andrea and our lovely Poodle Thomas.
