So what the heck is a Frog Dog?
You may be aware that Frog Dog Studios only started trading in February this year, but what you might not know is that behind the scenes this business has been evolving for years. I know right?! What took me so long?
Well I have been working in the pet industry now for as long as I can remember. When I was 21 I started my first business as a dog groomer which set the pace for things to come. I then went on to work in animal welfare and provided after hours emergency services for all kinds of animals. This position eventually led me down the path of animal management and owner education. Over the years I have had extensive hands on training in animal behaviour, particularly with dogs and I still have a keen interest in this area.
What's this all got to do with Frog Dog Studios you might be thinking? I know I would be! So one day I got to thinking about what direction I wanted to head next. I have always been a creative person and have a passion for the arts. It took me a few months to work it out but I eventually enrolled to do a Diploma of Photography which then led to a Bachelor of Fine Arts at RMIT.
So here we are 17 years after I first started working with dogs and the natural progression was to combine my two loves and open Frog Dog Studios! And I love it. Every single minute of it. I tell you, I can't believe it took me this long to get to here but I did and I couldn't be happier
So enough about me, what about Frog Dog Studios? What's that all about? It's all about the celebration of the amazing connection we have with our best friends!
Myself and my trusty sidekick Tony have decided that we want to offer a different kind of experience. With my animal behaviour and photography know how coupled with Tony's everlasting patience and tech support we believe we can provide that for all pet owners.
How is it different?
All our photography is done in studio which gives us complete control over lighting, positioning, colour and action. (Maybe not your pets behaviour, but that can be a good thing!)
Once we are in the studio we like don't like to pose to much. We prefer to let your pet shine and capture their personality by evolving our artwork around them. Does your dog like to catch or play tug of war? Or perhaps they are more relaxed and like to lay around? Don't think your pet would sit still long enough? Great! That's when we get the best shots. With our high speed photography techniques we capture all the humorous moments that make our best friends who they are. Check out some of the work we have done here.
Our finished products are all hand printed, certified and guaranteed by me! You can see a little more about what we offer here.
The last thing that sets us apart is our approach to package pricing. Ever signed up for a reasonable photography session fee to find out later that your images are going to cost you thousands on top of that?! Yeah. Me too. We don't want to work that way. All Frog Dog Studio packages are all inclusive!
We want everyone to be able to spoil themselves and their best friend with out any hidden surprises! This is why we have designed our packages to be all inclusive so you know what you are paying for up front.
No surprises. Ever.
Of course you can add to your package if you like and we can also custom design one specific to your needs but you will know the cost up front every time.
Anyway, I think that's enough from me for one day don't you think?! Below you will find an offer that is available for another week if you would like to try our experience at a discounted rate.
FYI - we also have payment plan options and gift certificates. We know photography is a luxury item and we want everyone to have the chance to celebrate with their best friends so shoot me an email and see how we can help you have the Frog Dog experience too!
Woofs and wet noses,
Belinda and Tony x
