The farm operates a small, luxury dog resort and the Ritz Canine dog spa. The activities of the farm have been featured in many newspaper and magazine articles, as well as in news programmes (BBC, BBC World, ITV, Sky News, and Fox News) and television programmes (It's Me Or The Dog, The F Word, and the upcoming Personal Services Required on Channel 4 in the UK).
The Walshes started to photograph the "furkids" in their care almost immediately, and their online photo gallery —www.furkids.eu— now has almost 14,000 images and has had over 400,000 page views. A related website —www.crittersnaps.com— has had over 50,000 votes cast.
As a result of requests to purchase their images, this website was born. In common with others, we have experienced unwanted hacks of the Coppermine software that runs the www.furkids.eu website.
All images are shot in high-res with a Canon EOS1D Mark II or Mark III camera. They are shot in RAW, and then processed in Capture One Pro before being "finished" in Photoshop CS3. Keywording is done using Image Keyworder software, and this website is maintained using LightBox Photo software.
