DOG PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE | 2 HOURS | PERTH, WA | $125

The pet (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 nail a great shot you can feel justifiably proud. We also cover Smartphones as they are seriously good at capturing action, Slo Mo and short video clips.

South Cottesloe Beach is the perfect beach for this course. It is defined as that area from the south or small groyne at Beach Street all the way south to Mosman Beach South Cottesloe beach is easy to get to and the lighting conditions are fantastic. The sharp, clean light, reflecting back off the sandstone cliffs, crystal clear, blue water makes this one of the best dog friendly beach for taking great photographs in Australia.

Throughout the course you will receive 1/1 mentoring and guidance from professional photographer Andrew Thomasson who has a enviable record as a professional pet, wildlife and sports photographer. Small groups of a maximum of 6 persons ensures that the animals avoid 'dog fights' and its also a brilliant opportunity for you to get superb photographs of you own pet to post on social media or to blow up as a fine arts print on your wall.
