TAME & WILD STUDIO FAQ’s
Where is Tame & Wild Studio located?
My purpose-built studio is located at 105 Prahran Avenue, Davidson in NSW, (near Belrose and Frenchs Forest) a short 25 minute drive north of Sydney’s CBD with plenty of parking.
Do you just take photos of dogs and cats?
I love working with ALL animals from turtles to rabbits, insects, birds, fish, frogs, spiders, chickens, roosters, even snakes.
I take great pleasure in capturing your beloved pets personality.
Do I need to book?
Yes, you do. The studio is open by appointment only.
To book, contact me on email@example.com or call +61 2 8206 9182 anytime between 10am and 7pm.
I love hearing all about your pet as it helps me work out the best way to bring out your pets personality and create amazing art work for your home.
How much is a Studio Photography Session?
A Studio Session for one pet is $150 which includes $100 in credit towards artwork. I am happy to photograph more than one pet at a session at an additional charge of $50 per pet.
When is the Studio open?
The studio is open Tuesday – Sunday with sessions held between 10am- 4pm. Some limited evening sessions are also available.
Every pet is different and I want to work with you to arrange a time that best suits your pet.
Please note that it can take between 2-4 weeks to get an appointment.
Do you take emergency bookings?
I understand that sometimes having a lasting memory of your pet can be urgent - please call the studio on +61 2 8206 9182 to discuss your request.
I will always try to accommodate these requests but please note that there maybe an additional charge for an out of hours studio session.
What does a Studio Photography Session involve?
My purpose built studio is set up with professional studio lighting and camera equipment to capture Tame & Wild's unique pet portraits. Because your pet is comfortable and familiar with you, I ask that you are present and participate in the photography session.
Do we photograph ‘on location’?
I have a purpose built studio, which provides a safe and professional environment. This ensures your pet will be captured in Tame & Wild’s signature style.
That said, I have worked with pets who have disabilities in the past, and I understand that transportation to our studio isn’t always a viable option for some pets. If this applies to you, please feel free to contact me to discuss how we can work together to meet your needs.
What do I need to bring?
I have a range of toys in the studio so it is not a requirement that you bring anything along for the photo shoot.
That said, my goal is to make the session fun for both you and your pet. As such, I encourage you to consider what is special to your pet and bring it along. For example, some of your pets favourite toys or something that is significant to both you and your pet such as their favourite bed or the special something they may have destroyed when they were young.
If you are looking for a creative/themed photo, this is something I am happy to accomodate and I ask that you discuss that with me when making your booking.
How long will my Studio Photography Session take?
A typical Studio Session will take about an hour.
I don’t force pets to do things, which means that I work at a pace that suits your pet. My sessions are a fun experience for you and your pet, and I allow plenty of time for animals who may be nervous or shy.
What happens if my pet is uncooperative during the Studio Photography Session?
I am an expert at working with animals and I employ a range of strategies to help keep your pet relaxed.
I know that most animals do not sit still and I am skilled not just to work with all types of pets who have a range of personality traits but to also capture images that showcase what you love about them.
The key to a successful photography session is patience and this is something I have a LOT off.
How long after my Studio Photography Session can I view the images?
Your Viewing & Purchasing appointment is usually booked in for approximately one week after the Studio Session.
What is the Viewing & Purchasing appointment?
This is when you get to view the images captured during your Studio Photography Session, and it is also the time when you select your favourite images and place your artwork order.
I ask that you allow for up to an hour.
I recommend that you consider and measure the wall spaces where you would hang your pets images, as this allows me to create artwork to suit the space.
Who should attend the Studio Photography and Viewing & Purchasing Sessions?
It is important that all the decision makers are at the viewing and purchasing session, as this is where you will be choosing your favourite images and deciding on how to best display these in your home.
If a second Viewing & Purchasing Session is required, there may be an extra fee.
Do we provide digital copies of the images captured?
I specialise in creating beautifully finished artwork from the images you choose and as such, I do not offer a ‘digital only’ service. I do however, offer packages that include the digital images of the artwork you purchase.
How can I pay for my artwork?
Direct deposit is our preferred payment method but I am also able to accept Visa or Credit/Debit cards.
I offer three payment options:
1. full upfront payment
2. 50% deposit paid, with the balance paid prior to delivery
3. payment plans are also available
How much do I have to spend?
I am a specialist in creating beautifully finished works that will show off your beloved pet’s personality.
Your session fee includes $100 credit towards your artwork, with no minimum spend. I am happy to work with your budget and preferences.
Fine art prints start at $135. Acrylic desktop art starts at $!95. High quality custom framed wall prints, acrylic and aluminium wall art start at $395.
I also provide a custom design service should you require something specific – my studio has all the products on display.
Does your artwork come with a warranty?
Yes. My artworks use only the highest quality archival media and genuine inks, and I am happy to answer any questions you might have regarding our production.
How long do the products take to arrive once ordered?
The products are custom-made, either in house or by one of our business partners.
Some of our more complex custom artworks take up to four weeks but generally your order will be ready within 2-3 weeks.
