Craig Cantwell Photography - Pet Photographer in  Forfar, Angus

I specialise in Pet Portraits and Pet Photography. I cover other aspects of photography but my favourite and the area I have most experience in is Pet Photography. I am passionate about animals and if you meet me you will probably also meet my assistant Tess, our 16yr old Border Collie Rescue.

I seem to have an affinity with animals and I just love capturing their personalities for their human companions.

I now have a 3 acre secure area with an open field and mixed woodland as well as a purpose built Pet Studio and I am in the process of building a large pond as a “water feature” for dogs to have fun in and to get some fun action shots.

I am fortunate to have woodland, open fields and beautiful views surrounding me, making it an ideal location for your Pet Portrait Experience.  I am also happy to travel to you and have travelled across Scotland taking photos of peoples dogs.

“Craig has worked so hard to become the fantastic pet photographer he is. He has a connection with all animals {and people to} that not many people have, his photos are so alive and spontaneous I have many beautiful photos of Guinness, Norman and myself. Thank you Craig”

- Ann Bailey

“I received the pet portrait as a gift, and what a wonderful time I had with my dog Daisy, who was not too keen on the studio part, but Craig was so patient. The photographs are amazing, I was delighted with them, he really caught her personality. Cannot recommend him highly enough.”

- Janice Suttie

“We first met Craig at a charity event when our GSD pups were only 3 months old. The man has the patience of a saint. We were so impressed with how he worked with our boys that we will be booking another portrait. So professional and what a lovely manner. Such a very high standard of photography. Wish there was a higher rating!!”

- Margaret Miller

“Craig has a lovely way with people as well as dogs and this made our photo shoot a great experience. One of our dogs can be hyper and stressed in new situations but because Craig is so calm, he responded really well to him. We got some amazing photos from our shoot and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Craig. ”

- Helen Currie

“I was lucky enough to get a Pet Portrait as a gift. Craig has been well organised, informative and flexible throughout. He welcomed us to his lovely studio and was so good with my 3 (not so good!) collies. He has gone above and beyond to fit in our outdoor shoot, dealing with all the obstacles professionally, coming to our home so our 16 yr old lady was more relaxed. The result was some fantastic only issue is trying to choose the best ones! As well as being an excellent photographer, Craig is a lovely guy and puts dogs and humans at ease! Would absolutely recommend him ”

- Tracy McNaughton

“Craig Cantwell is a Fantastic Photographer with the patience of a Saint. I'm a Dalmatian breeder and I gave Craig the challenge of doing a puppy shoot from 2 weeks to 8 weeks old. Believe me as they get older that's no easy fete ”

- Sonja Shepherd

“We had the most enjoyable experience when Craig photographed Teddy our dog & ourselves last year. Craig is an experienced, professional pet photographer who connects with his doggy subjects in a way that brings to the fore their best features. I’d have no hesitation in asking him to do further shoots. ”

- Grace Sharkey

“Craig is one of the nicest people I have ever met. I met him through Facebook around two or three years ago, which is when brogan had his first photoshoot with him. We had an amazing time, brogan warmed up to him so fast! Which is rare for brogan to do. We got amazing photos. Craig is very patient, he will see to a dogs behaviour and act how he thinks will help, he will not go and pet them without knowing how they will act. The results from the photos were fast, the process was amazing, the photos were worked very well on, lots of love and care. Craig captures the life, happiness and personality in the photos! He captures brogans personality in the photos, which I love! I seriously cannot thank Craig enough for what he does, he helps charities, animals, people. I would compare Craig to Mother Nature if I’m being honest with how amazing he is with animals! The photos were amazing, the experience was great, and it wasn’t just me who enjoyed myself, brogan did as well! ”

- Sasha wilson

“We visited Craig last September with our two show cocker spaniels, Hogan and Braid. Now, these two are a pair of hooligans.... Craig was so patient with them and managed to capture some beautiful images. We found it so hard to choose, so we asked Craig to do something slightly different. We just love our collection of beautifulness!!❤️”

- Claire Campbell

“Craig is an amazing pet photographer and is a natural with dogs, who all seem to love him. His studio is in an incredibly beautiful part of the Scottish countryside too! ”

- Graham Galloway

“Craig did fabulous photos of mabli when she was a pup he was so brilliant getting her attention and we got great photos”

- Lynsey milne

“Craig is a brilliant photographer. He put our dogs and us at ease straight away and created a wonderful memory for us. A fantastic day out with some stunning photographs to prove it. Thank you Craig. We look forward to seeing you again. Meg, Moss, Sue and Paul xxx”

- Susan McLennan

“Fab photographs & all round good guy who has a natural affinity & genuine love of dogs ”

- Catherine Phillips

“Craig is an amazing photographer and fantastic with all animals. His photo sessions are fun for both pets and their owners. All animals just seem to love him. You'll be more than happy with his service. ”

- Mrs Sally A Harding

“Great guy to work with, any questions clearly answered honestly. And above all a brilliant picture of my dog ”

- Jen Elder

“I had an opportunity to do a shoot with Craig and brought along my very young nervous springer pup to try and socialise him... The shoot went so well the pup took over and fell asleep in Craig's hand... Craig also went on to win an award for one of the pics of him.... If that doesn't explain the level of skill this guy has, alongside patience and calmness, I don't know what will! ”

- Jodie Bulpitt

“Craig is an absolute fabulous guy. He is so good with the dogs and very patient with them. His photos are gorgeous and we wouldnt go to anyone else. ”

- Lorraine Patience

“I received a pet portrait experience as a gift and made arrangements with Craig to have my dog, Angus, photographed inside his studio, plus outside in some stunning scenery around his home & studio in the countryside. My booked date had to be rescheduled a couple of times due to inclement weather, but I got advance notice from Craig. To his credit, he only wants the best photographs to be taken of your dog and so the weather conditions are of the utmost importance to achieve that. Craig's manner with dogs is fantastic. My dog was misbehaving, and not always sitting or posing as needed, but it really didn't phase Craig at all. I was more bothered about it than he was! The images he produced were of incredible quality and really captures Angus's personality. I can't rate Craig highly enough! ”
