Dog Photographer Workshop reviews:

Hi Steve, just a quick note to say many thanks for the one day Dog Photography workshop I attended with you in May 2018. A very professional coaching day that clarified existing knowledge but more important expanded on new ideas and settings for me to use going forward. Once again many thanks and would recommend these workshops to anyone looking to understand more about the technical requirements for dog photography. Regards Stuart.

I would highly recommend the dog photography workshop with Steven. He was patient, knowledgeable and clearly enjoys helping you improve. He taught me about my camera, how to use shutter speeds and white balance to create stunning photos. I’m really pleased with how a couple of the shots I took have turned out. I’ll keep practising! Thank you Steven.

I joined Steven and his 3 gorgeous German Shepherds for the photo workshop on 12 Nov. I wondered if I was mad when my alarm went off at 6am & I started the trek from London. Well it was 100% worth it! Not only is Steven a patient & encouraging teacher, he is also an excellent dog trainer. I learned tips about dog interaction as well as focusing, picking the best shutter speed & recognising lighting. I have a great selection of shots that I’m proud of from the day
The 3 dogs are so well behaved as well as being massive cuddle bears who will sit patiently while you try to get your perfect shot then photobomb you with no shame � They love their day out & so you get wonderful shots of natural behaviour. Steven doesn’t do posing or use treats to get them to comply, so it’s great practice at just “being” with the dogs & capturing their best moments.
All in all it was so good I suspect I may find myself heading back towards them at 6am one of these days!

The next workshop is Sunday 30th December 2018 at £100.00 per person.

The workshop will be a full day and the guide itinerary is as follows:

The morning will be spent working with you to make sure you are getting the best out of your camera and lenses and understanding your photographic knowledge, we will of course be working with our four legged models whilst we go through the essential preparation making sure you are fully ready for the afternoon activity which will start off with still and slow moving dogs so we have the time to build up your focussing skills, your panning skills and keeping the focus point where it needs to be, on the dogs eyes!

For the rest of the session we will simply speed up the dogs to make sure you are properly challenged and tested! We will of course stop at anytime to work with you on any questions you may have, it is a full on day!

In this workshop you will have the challenge of trying to photograph a greyhound cross lurcher running at full speed!

Places are restricted to six dog photographers per workshop, lunch is included but any accommodation you need is at your expense. I can recommend a range of nearby lodgings to suit. We will be working with a range of dogs of all shapes and sizes and colours so your use of exposure will be really tested and improved.
