Behind the Scenes: Basil’s Dog Photo Shoot at Tilly’s Studio


We’ve held onto this blog post for months, as we wanted to show off these beautiful shots of Basil taken by Tilly’s Studio in all their glory on our new look website.

Tilly’s Studio, a photo studio exclusively for dogs and their owners, approached us over summer to see if we’d be interested in giving Basil the experience of a professional photo-shoot. Naturally we leapt at the chance and within days found ourselves inside their hip and fun West London studios raring to go for Basil’s close up ...
