The dog photography course covers the gear and technique needed to take great shots. It requires a fast, trained eye to capture the action using varying depth of fields, shutter speeds, freezing and capturing motion and incorporating the right light and composition to create a great image. Animal photography is challenging, rewarding and highly satisfying. When you take a great shot you can feel justifiably proud. Many factors come into play such as lens perspective. For instance, shooting with a wide angle lens, a dachshund become a 3 foot long frankfurter and a long lens flattens a bulldogs face further.

South Cottesloe beach is the perfect place to run this course. This beach is one of Perth’s more peaceful, uncrowded beaches – perfect for swimming, long walks, wind surfing and playing with your dog. The sharp, clean light, reflecting back off the white sands, blue water and shallow waters makes it a photographers paradise. You will get superb photographs of your dog in action as the background is so clean, fresh and uncluttered.
