EpicTails Photography

Choose from a variety of photographic sessions and packages, ranging from our basic photo-shoot to multi-session packages that span the course of the whole year. While our focus is on the pets we know how they feel about you, and how they always put their best paw forward when playing with their people, so in all our sessions we invite you to get get in the picture and have fun with them.

Our basic sessions typically last 45 - 90 minutes, and result in 20 - 30 fully edited full resolution images. All sessions include a online web gallery where finished images can be shared and downloaded.

Printed artwork can be ordered directly from your gallery, in a variety of sizes and formats.

Basic Packages


A Walk in the Park

Does your dog like to play? Do they jump and twirl and whine with excitement at the sight of their leash, or pant in anticipation of a ride in the car.  Is it a wide open field with room to run that really gets their tail going, or the day old scent-trail of a bunny that has them running and jumping through the forest in hot pursuit. If so this is the session for you. Whether its a high action game of fetch, splashing around on the shores of the Elbow, or just sniffing out the neighbors on a local pathway. If they live to get out of the house and explore the world, than this is where we want to see them.

In this session we'll take a walk through one of Calgary's many parks and if they're up for it maybe spend some time playing in an off-leash area.

Homeward Bound

Maybe your pup is happiest at home. Maybe there is no better place than a warm ray of sunshine coming through a kitchen window. Maybe chasing their favourite stuffed toy across the living-room is excitement enough, and curling up on the couch next to their favourite popcorn wielding human is truly the highlight of their day. If going outside is more a chore than an adventure than this is the session for them.

The perfect choice for very young puppies who haven't quite got a handle on the outside world, older dogs who are passed their prime, or dogs and owners that just really like to cuddle up at home.

This is also the session for non-dog owners. Whatever they are. Be it cats or bunnies, snakes or reptiles, even fish or birds, we'd be happy to capture lasting images of the creatures you love.

In this session we'll come to you, so that we can photograph your companion in and around the home and yard where they are most at ease.



Mini Session

A quick fifteen minute photoshoot at the local park. Typically results in 3-5 images that can be downloaded or ordered from your own personal gallery.
