Dog Days of Swansea is a week-long photography event run by Safelight Images. From the 28th August until 3rd September we will be holding pet portrait sessions at our studio in Brynmill, Swansea.

This is all in aid of raising much needed supplies for Many Tears Animal Rescue. As part of the booking fee, we ask for a dog food donation which will be passed onto Many Tears at the end of the event. You will receive an 8”x6” print of your favourite image from the session as well as a ‘Doggy Bag’ full of treats and offers. A £10 booking fee is required to secure your booking with a percentage of all fees going to Many Tears.
