Commercial Photography: Oak Heart Vet

At Charles Dickens Photography, we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality commercial photography available. The Oak Heart Veterinary Hospital recently reached out to us for some professional images. We were able to sit down with them to develop a plan for the shoot to ensure that we captured everything they needed. Their needs included images for marketing materials as well as their company website.


They recently remodeled their offices and we were able to highlight the new look. They also expanded and opened new locations. There are three conveniently located Raleigh, NC locations. We photographed interior and exterior images of two locations and will shoot the third very soon.

Corporate Head Shot Photography

Here are some of the head shots taken of their veterinary team. You can see how they utilized them on their website here.

Candid/Action Photography

We were also able to capture some candid “action” images with the Veterinarians and technicians. We feel we were truly able to communicate how good they are at what they do and how much they care about their patients.



As a service to all of our clients, we deliver full sets of web and print resolution image files so that our clients have everything they need for both print and web marketing.

If you’re in the local Raleigh-Triangle area, be sure to visit an Oak Heart Vet location for all your pet needs. They’ll be hosting a Grand Opening event for their new locations, cleverly titled “Barktoberfest” on Saturday, October 5th from 5-8 PM. They hope you’ll join them! Visit their website for more information on the event and their Veterinary services. They are also accepting reservations for pet boarding and doggy daycare!

Head Shot for College Portfolio?

We recently had a unique head shot request from a high school senior that was applying to college. She needed a professional portfolio head shot for her application to the theatrical program at Elon. We’ve done lots of acting portfolio head shots as well as professional head shots for grad students applying to med school etc, but haven’t been asked to create a professional head shot for undergrad application before, but it makes sense given the program she is applying for. Just goes to show that professional head shot images are more important than ever now a days. Contact us here if we can help you with yours.

Captain Bill’s – Good times, Good memories!

Captain Bills Backyard Grill in Wilmington celebrated 25 years in March in routine fashion hosting a beach volleyball tournament. We were privileged to join them for great food, fun and volleyball as we photographed the day for friends and owners John and Erin Musser. The day did not disappoint!

We lived in Wilmington for 6 1/2 years after college and became regulars at Captain Bills. Playing ball with friends, enjoying great food and making memories were always on the menu. Speaking of the menu, we had a chance to photograph one of their top menu items for the website when we were down for the celebration. We love photographing food dishes because we get to sample the food, and in this case their custom crafted beers! 🙂

Recently, John and Erin embarked on a new adventure with their daughter and son-in-law. Bill’s Front Porch, just in front of Captain Bills, is a new brewery and restaurant with more great food and atmosphere. Just check out this front porch! It is such a beautiful place and I am sure it will become another favorite place on our frequent visits to Wilmington!

Vet Clinic Commercial Photography

Some recent images from a commercial shoot we photographed for a vet clinic just outside Raleigh. This was a half day shoot to create some new images for the clinic’s website update. The site was a gorgeous historic property converted for the business, so finding nice visualy appealing backdrops was easy this time. Had a great time working with and getting to know the staff and their pets too. Fun shoot!

Fun time with the staff. Not sure if this one will make it on the website though.
