Beach Dogs Pet Photography Workshop

Have you always wanted to learn how to capture fast-moving dogs at the beach? Then, join me in the summer months for this fun pet photography workshop and learn how to freeze motion and capture the personality of your subjects.

Capturing dogs at liberty can be tricky, but it’s not all luck. Learn how to direct your subjects to increase your chances of capturing great images. We will look at camera settings, shooting angles, and getting your exposure right. Learn how to alter your settings for multiple subjects.

You won’t be required to get in the water but be prepared to get a little wet and sandy! I can guarantee your models will put a smile on your face.


  • How to choose appropriate aperture, shutter and ISO settings.
  • The different types and uses of exposure metering modes.
  • Shooting action/moving subjects by using continuous focus modes.
  • Selecting single or small group focus points to track your subject
  • Shooting angles to enhance the impact of your images
  • Tricks for directing your subjects to get high-impact shots.

  • Preferable telephoto/zoom lens between 200mm and 400mm
  • Circular polarizer if you have one
  • The manual for your camera.
