Perfect portraits for pooches - Thereís more to great animal portraits than a bit of bribery with a pocket full of Bonios. So the team at Contemporary Photographic Training (CPT) has launched a brand new course to help you take stunning images of Manís Best Friend.

Often considered the most important members of the family, pets are treasured by their owners and clients often want a portrait of their furry friend to cherish.
How to Photograph Dogs is a brand new one day workshop, taking place on 30th October 2008 at the CPT training centre in Staveley, Cumbria.
Ideal for dog-loving photographers, Philip Egan will show you the secrets behind capturing compelling images, without sending you barking mad.
Designed to help you work with dogs in and ordered and effective way, this seminar will help you gain awareness of canine behaviour - delivered by Philip, who has years of experience working both as a photographer and dog handler.
Suitable for all levels of photographer, the course will cover what to expect when working with dogs and how this knowledge can be used to your advantage. With an uncomplicated approach to the technical aspects of the camera, the team at CPT will free you to interact with both the dog and client, teaching you how to direct and anticipate the dog's next move.
You'll also touch on canine psychology, the importance of your own body language when working with dogs and overall, how to use the tricks of the trade to capture stunning images!
The cost of this inspirational workshop is just £150 +VAT.
