Who is Dog Shots for?

For the hobbyist or enthusiastic amateur

All the recipes in Dog Shots are rated for difficulty. While some focus on easily understood concepts such as location and lighting, higher rated recipes move towards more technical considerations. Dog Shots is designed to grow with you – as you grow and learn you can attack the more difficult concepts to take your skills to the next level.

For the aspiring or startup pet photographer

Dog Shots will give you stacks of new ideas and fresh recipes to aid in you creating amazing shots that will totally WOW your clients. And we all know that tapping into this wow factor really assists in getting your clients to spend big and importantly, rave about your amazing skills to their friends – which are all potential clients themselves!

For the professional portrait photographer

If your focus is usually on people, you may need a little help to shift into a different mindset when photographing dogs. Dog Shots will help you move above and beyond posed portraits, with some great tips on capturing action and seeing your subjects from new angles and engaging in different activities.

Whether you’re photographing your own dogs as a hobby, volunteering at shelters or pet rescue organisations or shooting client sessions, chances are you may find yourself stuck in the habit of taking the same set of shots at every session. Dog Shots introduces a host of great new ideas to help improve and expand your dog photography skills and portfolio.

What exactly is inside?

Dog Shots is set up just like a recipe book, with each of the 30 “recipes” including crucial information you’ll need to know to implement the shot. Some shots are geared towards technical expertise, while others concentrate on elements such as utilising the location and environment, working with light or interacting with the dog.

"Are you are looking for a fantastic resource to help you create dazzling variety in your pet photography sessions? Look no further than Dog Shots. Charlotte has broken down 30 different shots in a way that is easy to understand and implement. I am certain that photographers of all levels will find useful information in this book."

"One of my favorite things about Charlotte Reeves is the way her photos tell a story. The wide variety of her images shows us the beauty of the dog as well some of its unique personality. In her brilliant new book, Dog Shots, Charlotte shares her recipes for getting the shot right. She breaks down 30 types of photos with amazing ease and offers distinct key points for replicating each of these categories.

About the author

My name is Charlotte Reeves and I started my pet photography business – Charlotte Reeves Photography – in mid 2007. After over 13 years of being in business, I’ve built up my skills and business model to be the successful, internationally renowned pet photographer I am today. I have a steady stream of clients and am at the stage in my career where I get a real kick out of teaching people to discover their potential within a niche area of photography that I personally love and feel has real value to society.

When not hanging out with my Australian Shepherds Fletcher, Opal and Enzo, I love to read historical fiction novels, explore new destinations through travel and immerse myself in nature. A self-confessed techno geek, I also thrive on finding time to disconnect from technology and spend time with my amazing husband, friends and family.

"Whatever stage you're at in your journey towards better dog photography, I guarantee there will be something in Dog Shots that will help you on your way and assist you in capturing amazing photos of our canine friends."

"Dogs grace our lives for such a short time, that capturing high quality, professional photos is now a must-do for any pet owner. Fetching Photos is the go-to guide for amateur and seasoned photographers alike. Filled to the brim with technical lessons, professional photo shoot planning, and tips on working with dogs, Charlotte Reeves has drawn on her years of experience as a professional pet photographer to create the ultimate resource in dog photography. It's a must for any dog loving shutterbug."
