About me

Rhian White and her Pug Boo

Inspired by my dog, I became a professional pet photographer…

Hello, my name’s Rhian White and my dogs are called Boo and Betsy.

Actually, Boo inspired me to set up Brighton Dog Photography. When I first got Boo 10 years ago, I couldn’t stop taking photographs of her. She didn’t mind. After all, Boo was just playing around whilst I captured her with my camera – at her doggy best and having loads of fun. Since those first photos of Boo, I’ve worked with almost one thousand happy dogs and their wonderful people. Have a look at some of my favourite dog images.

I’ve also worked on professional commercial shoots for local, national and international organisations – firms such as House of Hugo, Din Dins, Drontal, Dog’s Trust, PDSA and Support Dogs to name a few – and my photographs have been published in The Telegraph, The Guardian, The Daily Mail, Dog’s Today magazine, Dog Friendly magazine, Herald Sun Australia and Brighton Argus.

But I don’t just work with dogs…

Pet photos: Cats, hamsters, parrots, horses… and chickens

I started out photographing dogs, but since then I’ve worked with a whole array of pets – cats, horses, tortoises, chickens… Yes, I did say chickens.

I use natural light, specialist equipment and a unique understanding of animals to bring out the quirky, endearing and downright bonkers side of your pet’s personality. Here are some of my recent pet images, including the gorgeous chickens.

My background

I started out as a graphic designer, working at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford for 5 years before starting a career in photography and film making. I’ve worked across all sorts of photographic and film-making disciplines – wedding photography and corporate photography, videos and corporate films.

I’ve also run workshops on photography, film, graphics and animation for a whole array of people – school kids, teachers, young offenders and business owners to name just a few.

I love teaching people how to take great photos of their dogs. If you’d like to learn the basics, bring yourself and your dog along to one of my dog photography workshops. Or if you’re thinking of starting your own pet photography business and need some advice, come along to one of my mentoring sessions.
