An award-winning pet photographer is expanding his growing company thanks to a new purpose-built studio in his garden thanks to Rubicon Garden Rooms
Jonathan Yearsley, from Caergwrle in Flintshire, was keen to separate his business activities from his home life but wanted to avoid the need to commute so turned to Deeside-based Rubicon Garden Rooms, which has provided him with the “perfect” solution.
A former Kennel Club Dog Photographer of the Year, demand for Jonathan’s work is increasing year on year, with some clients travelling across Europe to get him to snap their pet.
Jonathan believes moving his base from a loft conversion to an impressive new outside studio will enable him to grow his business further.
Rubicon Garden Rooms create bespoke top-of-the-range units, which are used for everything from home offices to hobby dens, art or music rooms, yoga studios, teenage chill-spaces and annexes for dependent relatives.
Fully insulated, the materials simulate wood, whilst other products simulate stone and slate to enhance comfort, zero-maintenance and aesthetic appeal. The company has just been accredited for its commitment to customer service, under the Buy With Confidence scheme run by local authority Trading Standards teams.
Dog owner Jonathan, who is originally from Prestatyn, said: “I wanted to separate the house from the business but I desperately wanted to avoid a commute.
“What Rubicon Garden Rooms has provided me is absolutely perfect. I basically walk across the front of my garden to get to work.
“Everything is set up now and I just need to make a few tweaks to get it ready for the studio sessions.
“It’s a brilliant internal space and the fact it’s maintenance-free was the major selling point for me.
“My clients generally travel from North Wales, Cheshire and Lancashire but I also get them from Scotland and Northern Ireland. I’ve even had people come from southern Spain and Prague to get their dogs photographed.
