1. What inspired Gooseberry Prints?
Gooseberry Prints was inspired by a love of storytelling and animals. The artist wanted to create a body of limited edition artwork that brought to life lovable characters who would not only compliment a wide variety of home decor styles for all ages, but also become a cherished family heirloom.
Gooseberry Prints work is intended to inspire an understanding that no two animals are alike and that much like the creature characters who populate our books and imaginations as children, real life animals are also truly wonderful friends.
2. What is it like to work with animals?
Working with animals is a tremendous privilege and as such every animal-centric photoshoot is orchestrated with the deepest respect, patience and understanding for the creatures involved.
Gooseberry Prints always ensures the safety, well-being and comfort of the animals at all times above anything else. However, we would be lying if we said there was never time for animal snuggles when circumstances allowed for it.
Follow us on Instagram for a peek at what it is like working with animals in the studio.
3. How many collections does Gooseberry Prints release each year?
Gooseberry Prints releases three brand new, all-original collections each year. However, once in a while a special ‘bonus print’ becomes available at a moment’s notice. The best way to keep informed of our new releases is to regularly check in with the Gooseberry Prints website, follow us on Instagram or Facebook, or sign up for our adorable newsletter.
4. Are the props Photoshopped onto the animals?
No. Each final Gooseberry Prints print does undergo an extensive post production process (of course, any professional image does) but the props incorporated into each shot are not in any way falsified. What you see in each shot is actually what happened in studio during shooting. Each print presents an authentic moment and scene. *
*the animals’ well-being is always top priority. No prop is used that stresses an animal or makes an animal uncomfortable.

Gooseberry Prints ensures that every print is beautifully coloured and impeccably presented to mirror what is viewed on the Gooseberry Prints website. However, please be advised that due to various monitor calibrations prints may not look exactly as you see them at home.
This means that what you see on your smart phone may look very different from what you see on your home computer due to each monitor’s individual settings. However, we promise that every Gooseberry Prints print will look stunning when it arrives!

17. When I receive my print can I photocopy or duplicate it?
No. Each Gooseberry Print is copyright protected and strictly prohibits any replication of any kind. This means you cannot by law photocopy, manipulate or reproduce any Gooseberry Prints even for personal private use. The print will always remain the intellectual property of the photographer and may not be replicated in any manner.
Think of it this way – when you purchase a novel you own the physical book, but you do not own the story. It is illegal to copy, print or reproduce the story in any manner; doing so is called plagiarism. Similarly, copying, printing or reproducing a photographer’s work/imagery is also a form of plagiarism and it is strictly against the law.
