About the event:

Join Jay Collier from Canon Collective to capture action packed photographs of your dog running on the beach and through the water at Sandringham Dog Beach.

All guests will have shared access to a range of Canon cameras and lenses both telephoto and wide angle to help capture a variety of images over 1.5 hours from high speed action shots to portraits.

On completion of this workshop guests will understand:

• how to capture high speed action photographs of your dog
• how to work with light to capture stunning portraits
• understand exposure, shutter speed, ISO, aperture and focus modes

Each guest will be required to bring the following items:

• Canon EOS camera and wide angle and long zoom lenses. (loan gear will be available to all guests also)
• Plenty of memory cards and charged batteries
• appropriate clothing for outdoors at the beach, hat and sunscreen. You can shoot in the shallows so consider board shorts and thongs.
• Your dogs favorite ball to throw on the beach and into the water
• A towel and change of cloths as you will likely get wet

A little knowledge can make a world of difference. Check out our pet photography tips from Jenn Cooper.
