Dog Photography Workshop South Wales
Learn how to master taking posed or action photos of dogs with my Dog Photography Workshop

I love animals, love photographing them and capturing their unique personalities. I have not got the patience to be a wildlife photographer sitting around quiet for the perfect moment, but over the last 20 years I have thrived on being in the moment photographing dogs and horses.

Do you find taking dog photos tricky to do? I have created a very quick 2 hour fun and relaxed workshop to help you have an immediate improvement to enable you to take better photos of your own dog or to be able to start taking photos of clients dogs and start earning money from your photography. The skills you learn in this workshop can also be used in many other genres of photography.

The tips and tricks I will teach you, will be done as real life dog photography outdoors not on a lead or in an enclosed area or studio, my handsome dog Pluto will be the model so you don’t need to bring a dog with you. Pluto is a Collie x Greyhound and can behave both erratic or quiet and well trained depending on my instructions, giving you the perfect challenge or the ability to just concentrate and master your camera settings.

Here is what my Dog Photography Workshop will cover:

  • How to engage with the dog
  • How to utilise the outdoor lighting
  • Best camera settings and focus tips
  • Take a mixture of action and posed photos
  • How to take photos with dogs that must stay on leads
  • How to take photos of owners with their dogs
  • Explain editing tips to improve photos

What camera equipment do I need?

The most basic dslr or mirrorless camera with a kit lens will do. I do highly recommend a 70-200mm f2.8 lens if you have one.

How much does it cost?

I work with a group of 5 people at £30 each for 2 hours. Please contact me if you are interested to book and then I can set a date, if you don’t have 5 people I can then advertise the date so others can join and make up the group of 5. Or if you wish to have a private one to one session, I can offer this for £100. Gift vouchers are also available.
