Hounds & Horizons dog photography specialises in creating lasting memories for adventurous dog parents and their pups in a force-free environment that nurtures the dog's personality and brings out that beautiful dog-owner bond.

Dog photographer Laura Holzner travels worldwide, capturing dog portraits and action photos inspired by nature. She is based in beautiful Squamish, British Columbia, Canada.


Not only have I been surrounded by dogs all my life, I've worked with well over 300 dogs in the past few years. I met dogs of all ages with different backgrounds, personalities and stories in many countries. Observing and listening to their owners has given me so much insight and understanding into working with animals.


I have tons of patience for my pups and their humans. It's my top priority that people and dogs have a good time at the shoot. We will work with rewarding treats and toys, have time for cuddles and take sniff breaks. There is never any pressure or force, and we work with what the dog is comfortable with. The shoot is tailored to the personality of you and your pup.

Embark on a beautiful adventure with your soul dog.

This is your photoshoot - which means it's all about you and your pup. Every shoot is customised, to make sure we find the perfect location. Have you got a water-loving retriever? - How about the beach or lake? Is your dog reactive? - Let's find a spot to ourselves. Do you spend your free time hiking with your dogs?- Off into the mountains we go. As I said, this is your photoshoot, and we can make it about what you and your dog enjoy most. Let's capture the memories you want to frame, the ones to keep forever.

Absolutely outstanding!! Laura was amazing to work with, professional yet incredibly personable. She understood our personalities and my vision and executed it better than I could’ve imagined. We had such a positive experience and Laura turned a great day into such a beautiful memory. Laura went above and beyond travelling to Southland to show me her photos in person. There aren’t words to express my appreciation and gratitude! I can’t wait to work with you in the future! Thank you!!

"Cannot recommended Laura enough! Her photos are absolutely stunning and she always captures the pup’s personality so well. Our photoshoot was lovely and relaxed, she made me feel super comfortable in front of the lens. Laura was amazing with my dog Elmo, she had all the tricks to get him posing perfectly. The photos turned out absolutely stunning!"

Your Photographer

Hi, I'm Laura!

I grew up in a little village in Germany. After school, I decided to travel. That was about six years ago now. Through travelling, I discovered my photography for myself.

Everyone that knows me knows how much I care about animals, especially dogs. When I started photography, dogs were the obvious choice of subject. I love spending time with them and their humans and capturing their unique characters in nature.

 Photography combines my biggest passions in life and lets me bring everlasting memories to people's homes.

When you book a session, you enable me to dedicate time to rescues worldwide, providing them with photos that get pets adopted.

Need more information? Here is a little treat for you!
