Have you been trying to take a photograph of your dog? Tricky, isn’t it.
But don’t worry because my fun and relaxed workshops are designed to deliver an immediate improvement.
This is real life dog photography - not in a studio and not in an enclosed garden with a dog on a lead, this is all-out dogs running free and happy with all the distractions and difficulties that can entail! This will teach you how to deal with all of it. It's not supposed to be easy but with a few tips and tricks you will get far more than you think.
I’ll show you easy-to-use techniques that you can start using straight away. You don’t need a posh camera. You’ll learn skills and ideas that work with any type of camera, even your mobile phone.
I run two workshops: Essential and Advanced skills, each lasting 3-4 hours and for up to 4 participants and their dogs (you do not need to bring a dog).
Here's what they cover:
Making the best of lighting
How to engage your dog and keep them interested
The use of angles
The importance of background, setting the scene and the rule of thirds
Shutter techniques – capturing dogs at speed
Aperture techniques – creating beautiful portraits
How to photograph more than 1 dog at a time
How to photograph dogs with people
How much does it cost?
£95 for a half day group workshop covering aspects of both courses.
£175 for a half day 1-1 which covers aspects of both workshops
£325 for a day’s one-to-one workshop, covering all content from both Essential and Advanced workshops. A day tailored to your exact requirements. You also get access to my ‘Mastering Outdoor dog photography’ facebook group, exclusive to 1-1 participants, for unlimited ongoing support.
Dates - (group workshops do not run in Dec/Jan/Feb). 1-1s run all year round.
The below workshops are half day workshops, that combine some elements of the Essential and Advanced workshops.
Beginners and people who have previously been on any of more workshops are very welcome.
I don’t have any dates planned at the moment but come back for updates, or follow my Instagram or Facebook pages as I always post dates there. In general, I am only doing a few group workshops a year due to high demand for my 1-1s and my tours, but if you let me know you are interested I can add you to my email list and will let you know as soon as I put up a date. Group workshops are done in Devon or Brighton.
