Beginners Dog Photography Workshop


Got a DSLR and don’t know how to use it? Still photographing on auto? Do your photos lack that certain spark? Do you want to just be able to take some great photos of your own dogs?

Come and join me for my Beginners Dog Photography Workshop at the stunning location of Paws for Pleasure Secure Dog Field near Exeter. The jam packed morning will take you through your camera settings. Learn some of my top tips for photographing dogs, how to use the light, and finding the best backgrounds.

There will be plenty of talented models in a variety of all shapes and sizes for you to practice on. This workshop will include (confirmed as of writing) 11 of the most talented TV and Film dogs from Put Your Paws Up, show quality Standard Poodles, a few talented Border Collies, Scottish Terriers, a Lurcher, a Staffy and more!

Please note this workshop may involve a lot of sitting and lying on the floor, and the terrain at Paws for Pleasure can be a little uneven under foot.
