Learn how to take better photos of your dog outdoors in natural light

About the event

Want to know how to take better photographs of your dog but don't know where to start?

If you want to learn how to get the best out of your camera for photographing your dog, then this workshop will cover the basics for you and get you on your way to improving your pet photography.

In this workshop you'll not only learn my top ten tips for how to take better images of your dog, but you'll get hands on experience putting them into practise photographing dogs outdoors here on the farm. 

With post workshop image review and feedback to help you with your development.

To attend you must have a basic understanding of how to navigate your camera's menu and change settings.

PRACTICAL: Hands on workshop - Saturday 10th April 2.30pm to 6pm (approximately).

ONLINE: Image review and feedback - Monday 12th April, 7pm to 8.30pm, via Zoom.

Saturday 10th April from 2.30pm 

We'll spend approximately one hour on theory covering my top ten tips and basic recommended camera settings and two hours outdoors getting hands on practise with dogs on Saturday afternoon.

Please Note: Sunday 11 April is the back up date in case of bad weather, please make sure you can attend both afternoons if you book this event as there will be no refunds given if you are unable to attend the rescheduled afternoon. In the event both afternoons are unsuitable to spend time in the outdoors to capture some dog photographs, a full refund will be given. 

You don't need a Sony camera to attend this event, but a selection of Sony cameras and lenses may be available to try during the afternoon.  Please message me if there is anything specific you would like to try.

Monday 12th April 7pm to 8.30pm

This will be followed up by an online image review and feedback session via Zoom on Monday 12th April from 7pm to 8.30pm, to give you constructive feedback on your images taken at the workshop and discuss what went well and what can still be improved on.  With a short Q&A at the end to cover off any additional questions you have.

Zoom meeting link will be provided to attendees after the practical workshop.

No open toe shoes will be permitted due health and safety.
