Chrion Studio is a small purpose built photographic studio specialising in pet images in Warburton located in the Yarra Valley, Victoria, 1 ½ hours from Melbourne. Owner Julie Wilson has been a professional photographer for 25 years specialising in equestrian photography. Over her career Julie has travelled Australia and overseas extensively, photographing at all major equestrian events. During this time she has been asked to photograph many pets. With limitations to obtain the best images possible using natural light and outdoor locations Julie is offering pet owners the opportunity to have their small animals photographed in a professional and safe environment, to produce images that capture the animal’s personality at realistic prices.
Julie’s aim is to allow all pet owners to possess a wonderful memory of their animal for years to come and to be treasured long after the loved pet has gone. She also wants to keep the process as simple as possible, offering just one basic package. This package can always be added to but everyone who attends Chiron Studio will walk away with one framed image and some photos for social media. Over the years photographing animals Julie has come to realise that often the best photo of an animal is the first one. Time to take this image cannot always be put into minutes or hours; it is really just how long it takes. If the pets sits up perfectly, looks at the camera and smiles in the first five minutes asking it to do it 50 more times will only make it bored and lacking in enthusiasm. However, some animals need a long time to relax in the new environment and feel comfortable. So there is no time limit put on the photographic package. An hour is an average time for most domestic pets. In the Chiron Studio it has been built with animals in minds, so they cannot escape, if your young dog wants to mark its territory, or if your pet bird takes flight, it is not a drama.
