A company that creates 3D models of pets has launched a unique package for photography companies and independent photographers that promises to future-proof their services.

Arty Lobster is offering wholesale prices with a 30% discount exclusively to photographers on its new ‘3D Package’. Arty Lobster, which has experienced a surge in growth over the past twelve months and is taking on more staff, says the 3D pet sculpture market would ideally lend itself to photography companies’ existing offering.

After a photoshoot, pet photographers can get the client a unique 3D printed sculpture of their pet in full colour sandstone or bronze. This 3D Package generates additional income from each client, with no extra work. The rights to the photos remain fully with the photography company.

The innovative business, which started trading two years ago, has grown from an initial two members of staff to a team of eleven people, including seven 3D artists. The firm, which was a Finalist at the prestigious Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) London Business Awards, plans to hire an additional three 3D artists in the next 12 months.

London-based Arty Lobster takes 3D tech to the limits by creating items that are truly bespoke and unique. Highly skilled artists create the 3D pet sculptures from customers’ photos of their pet, which are then 3D printed before being delivered to the customer. There are three options, including sandstone, porcelain and bronze with prices starting at £140.

In order to remain at the cutting edge of 3D innovation, Arty Lobster has implemented a rigorous training program to ensure each pet sculpture is crafted to the highest quality and artistic standards.

Lars B Andersen, Founder and MD of Arty Lobster, said: “We’ve launched our ‘3D Package’ as working with photographers is the ideal partnership for us. Photography companies increasingly need to diversify their services to stay current. 3D print is exciting and new and the pet services including photography market is booming with astonishing year on year growth.

 “Many consumers are increasingly adopting a ‘DIY approach’ to photography and at best having their photos processed online, which sadly impact on professional photographers’ bottom line. With the increasing sophistication of 3D, there is now an opportunity to offer a new and unique service. While people can take photos and use them in numerous ways, consumer 3D printing is still very much in its infancy, too expensive for most pockets, and far from being sophisticated enough to produce good results. Photographers can really make their services stand out and ‘future-proofed’ by offering a 3D package.”


Lars added: “In business terms, it’s an incredibly exciting time for us. We have experienced strong growth in the UK and internationally, which has allowed us to take on several new full-time members of staff as well as to add to our team of dedicated associates.

“3D printing is still in its infancy, and as the technology continues to improve, we anticipate significant additional growth in the market.”
