Brighton Dog Photography: Relocation To Our Dog Friendly City Turned A Passion Into A Successful Business

"I want my work to send the message out that people really love their dogs and that's a great thing!," says Rhian White,, who runs Brighton Dog Photography.

Rhian moved to Brighton in 2010 with her dog Pug Boo, with the intention of securing a job as a graphic designer/photographer:

"After all, I had over 12 years experience and thought it would be easy to get a job here. 

"I couldn't have been more wrong - everyone here is a designer and photographer!

Lucky for Rhian she had more than one string to her professional bow.

"I had been taking dog photos for years already as a hobby - ever since I had Boo. 

"I really wanted to pursue this hobby and turn it in to a way of making a living, so the lack of being able to get a job sort of pushed me in to it. 


"I was happy to be pushed! It's the best thing I have ever done and I love every minute of it."

Brighton Dog Photography specialises in outdoor dog photography, but also offers the service of snapping dogs with their owners; a discipline that Rhian finds easier than just capturing the dogs on their own:

"It is quite different. Dogs are normally very focused on their owner so it can be harder to get them away from the owner than to stay with them. 

"Most dogs are happy to play or run with their owner or sit for a cuddle. These shots are relatively easy compared to the dog on their own."

Owing to the success of Brighton Dog Photography, Rhian has been able to broaden her remit and capture dogs on video camera:

"I see a future in short films of dogs and their owners. I'd like to create something unique and special that people can look back on in year's to come." 


Rhian is also upbeat about the future of Brighton Dog Photography:

"I want to continue learning and develop my craft - I don't think you can ever learn enough about photography. I always want to do something new and keep ideas fresh.

"I (also) want to support more charities through my work - puppy farming, dog meat trade in Asia, tougher sentences for animal abuse, help get more shelter dogs new homes - that sort of thing. 

"There are enough people in this world who are cruel to animals and my work reflects the complete opposite - there are millions of happy dogs living with people who adore them - those are the people who come to me to have their dog's picture taken. 

"It's a fantastic way for me to spend my time and I want to continue to do that for as long as possible."
