Below are some of the reviews Four Paws and a Tail Photos has received. We cannot take all of the credit though. The dogs (and other animals) plus their humans behaved superbly throughout, making each session an absolute pleasure to partake in!


Meg Boxframe“When Martin kindly offered to photograph the opening of my bookshop, I also took the opportunity to get some lovely pictures of my elderly Springer, Meg. The resulting photos were so good that it was hard to choose between them!

With Martin’s help we now have a framed collection of photos from the shop opening and a lovely close up of Meg hanging on our hall wall right opposite a mirror so we can see it from both directions!

Martin was very patient and helpful throughout the ordering process and we are delighted with the results. I would thoroughly recommend Four Paws and a Tail Photos for special photos of your pet he really captures their character.”

“I was thrilled to be your first overseas order. The greetings cards from Four Paws and a Tail Photos are stunning.

The quality of the photos as as well as the amazing customer service I received was appreciated. 

The cards came quickly and were packaged well for a trip across the ocean.

I’ll be a repeat customer!”

“I arranged for Martin to visit us at home to take some picture of our Cockapoo Buddy as a present for my wife’s birthday. We are delighted with the outcome and now have the pictures in pride of place about the house.

Martin has a real eye for a great photo and both he and Leigh were just brilliant with Buddy on the day of the shoot.

They clearly love dogs.

We would recommend Four Paws and a Tail to anyone looking to capture those special moments of their pet.”

Quote from our competition winner Danny the Welsh Sheepdog’s humum Cally:

“Our favourite part of summer was winning a photo shoot with Martin Parker Four Paws and Tail Photos.

We had a great weekend with Martin and his partner Leigh Kendall.

Lots of fun zooming around with my ball having my pics taken whilst in action. Also plenty of tummy rubs and luffly food at the pub and later at our local cheese shop/cafe.

Also we have moved home since then – I luffs it and have now got me own garden too !!

YEY *Danny hugs* xx”

Thank you Four Paws and a Tail Photos

“I wanted a surprise present for my friend of her Labradoodle, Cookie.  I was worried which of the photographs you had taken to use.  Your advice on choosing which photographs, sizes, glass and frame were spot on.  The item arrived quickly and was very well wrapped.

My friend was over the moon with her surprise gift.

I can highly recommend your site, help and professionalism.

(Your greetings cards have also been a hit with my animal loving friends and family)

Thank you once again.”

“We are all particularly grateful for your taking the group photo of the dogs that we rescued that have been rehomed. We do try and have one for each year we do the Just Springer Rescue Dog Show.

With your permission we would like to use this image for the calender we produce every year.”

“Thank you for capturing such lovely images, I am thrilled with them!!!

I love the pictures. They capture the Ben, Rufus & Timmy’s reactions to the shiatsu treatment so well. You can really see the horses relaxing as the treatment progresses.

I thought it would be tricky to capture each aspect of the shiatsu in practice on the horses but you have managed to do a superb job. I love the close-ups. The images will look great on my website – many thanks.” Debbie

“Just wanted to let you know how much Jim loved the photographs of Hollie and the children. He said they were his best birthday present and they went straight up on his wall in his office.

We had his birthday party on Saturday and lots of people were admiring the pictures!

Thank you again for doing such a great job – we love them as you know and they will a lovely thing for us to keep”. Maria

“Love the Millie photos!

She adores her ball and you captured so many great images of her in her element. The pictures in the garden are super – particularly those with the ball in her mouth. The black and white images capture her gentle side perfectly.

The photo-session actually tired her out – she slept for hours on her chair after you finished”. Kevin
