What is The Dog Photobooth?
The Dog Photobooth was first established when Alma Haser, a renowned portrait photographer and artist was invited to set up a pop-up booth at a dog event on the East Sussex coast. It proved an instant success and Alma continues to present her photo booth at events up and down the country, as well as accepting invitations to set up her mobile studio in client's homes for one-to-one pet portraits sessions.
A bit about Alma.
Born into an artistic family in the Black Forest, Germany, Alma Haser is now based in London and the East coast. Specialising in carefully constructed portraiture, expanding the dimensions of traditional portrait photography.
Shortlisted for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery in 2012 for her piece 'The Ventriloquist', Alma has gone on to win the Magenta Foundation's Bright Spark Award with her acclaimed project 'Cosmic Surgery; series. Alma is currently exhibiting work at the Saatchi Gallery as part of 'Selfie to Self-Expression' which runs until 30th May 2017.
The Dog Photobooth is a contemporary pet portraiture service. Alma's love for animals, combined with her discerning eye means she expertly captures each sitter's distinct character. All portraits are printed on fine art Somerset paper in a single edition.
A private session will either take place in your own home (providing there is at least a 3x3m space) or at a convenient studio (most likely East London, E2.) Alma will set up her studio equipment and then allow your dog to feel comfortable in front of the lights before starting the session. At the end of the session you will be able to go through the images and select your favorite. Alma will then retouch that selected image and send it off to print, which can take up to two weeks. The fee is £300, which includes travel*, set up, photo session, retouch and an 11x14” fine art print*.
Framing options are also available.
*There may be extra travel costs depending on where the shoot takes place.
*Larger print size is also available at print cost.
