Hello, and thank you for visiting the website for Paws 'n' Shoot Pet Photography! I'm Carla, owner and lead photographer for Paws 'n' Shoot.


I have been a photographer for 7 years. I got my first DSLR purely because I wanted to get better images of my two beloved Belgian Shepherds (see images left and right!). I knew very little about photography when I started, but I soon got the bug and started experimenting - and with lots of different animals too! 


Fast forward 7 years, and I have won several awards with my photography (much of which has been from my photos of animals!). My camera club have selected my images to represent them at regional and national level (with not inconsiderable success!). Photography and dogs/animals are two of my main passions in life, so I'm living the dream being able to make some money from it too!


When I take photos of any animal, be it a pet or otherwise, I'm not just aiming to get a good photo of them: I want to really capture their quirks and personality! I've lost count of the times people have said to me 'wow, you've really captured what [name] is all about!', and that's what gives me the greatest satisfaction of all. To this end, I will spend time talking to you about whoever you want me to take pictures of, and get to know them a bit, before I start taking any pictures. I will obviously also talk to you about anything you're particularly hoping to get from the shoot with me. 


I'm a farmer's daughter , so I'm happy to work with pretty much any pet or animal - except spiders (sorry, I'm an arachnophobe!), snakes or anything venomous/dangerous (but dangerous is relative....I don't consider bulls dangerous!). And I'll take pics of your pet/animal doing anything - ie working, playing or 'studio' (portrait) shots. Our studio is mobile, and our lights need no power, so we can bring it to you (anywhere) - or you can come to us if your pet/animal can be brought to it! Our home studio is quite small - and accessed via stairs - but it's big enough for dogs/people!


I am the lead photographer for Paws 'n' Shoot, but I have backup! My fiance is an award-winning photographer in his own right, and I have a further team of very experienced - and talented - photographers I can call upon to support me if I need them. 


We are based in Torquay, and mainly cover the South Devon Area (Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Newton Abbot and surrounding areas) but we will travel further afield for an additional mileage charge. I do have a base in mid-Devon (my farmer father!) so mid- and north- Devon may not attract the mileage rate I would charge from Torquay if I can combine it with a visit to my Dad!



I'm currently working on this site (I'm building it myself!), so I've only put basic information on this page for now until I have enough of our final site ready to replace it. I'm hoping that will be sometime in Autumn/Winter 2019...so watch this space!


Until it's done, we'll send you the details that will eventually be on this site (terms, and full price list etc) if you send an enquiry to us (see below).



In the meantime, we're posting details of what we're doing on our Facebook page - click on the Facebook tab on the left to see our posts and latest news, or click on the image above to go to the page and take a look. You don't need a Facebook account to view the page but, if you have one, you can like and follow us to see the latest updates, news and offers.


We'll make an announcement on Facebook when the finished website has been launched too.......


If you'd like to talk to us about having some images taken of your pet, click This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.to submit an email enquiry (this will open a new email addressed to us in your email software).

We do always have a chat by telephone before every shoot that is booked with us, just to get a flavour of your pet/animal and what you're after. If you'd rather speak to us from the outset, instead of providing initial details by email, just email us with the best number to contact you on and give us some idea when is a good time to call - and we'll do our best to call you when you'd like us to. If we can't, we'll arrange a time that suits you for us to call you.


I look forward to meeting you and your pet or animal - and to capturing some memorable images of you all! 


Thank you

Owner | Lead Photographer
