Portrait of Border Collie by Photogrpaher Ron Schmidt

Beautiful Photography to Cherish Forever

With a career in professional dog photography that spans over two decades, Ron understands that your dog is an essential part of your life and he is an expert at creating images that capture their true beauty and spirit.

Ron opens his schedule for 25 portrait session clients annually. Please contact us HERE to inquire about availability.
THE SESSION: Ronโ€™s portrait sessions take place in Newburyport, Massachusetts. The sessions are designed to provide a comfortable, relaxed, and enjoyable experience for both you and your dog. Each photo session is about 45 minutes long and can accommodate up to two dogs from the same household for no additional fee. The session is broken down into three parts: a brief welcome, the shoot, and a few minutes to wrap up at the end. *ย Please note, Ronโ€™s studio portrait sessions are taken with a grey and/or white backdrop, where the focus is on your dogโ€™s personality and unique features. These are traditional portrait sessions that differ from Ron's more conceptual art photos.

PRICING: The sitting fee for a portrait session with Ron is $750. This price includes a $250 deposit that is required at sign-up plus a $100 artwork credit toward prints & products. The remaining balance of $500 must be paid by the day of your session.
