Photographing dogs is a book all about how to get the best out of dog photography.
Aimed at professional digital photographers, the book assumes you have some background knowledge of photography, and have studio facilities that are dog friendly to be able to shoot in.
The book begins with how you should gradually ease into the canine market, and re-iterates that you should never fully lose touch with the human client, as of course these will be the main source of income for your business.
We are then walked through how you can achieve your own dog portrait style, to make yourself stand out in the market, before leading on to explain how a good marketing plan â€“ including your website and business cards â€“ can make all the difference in whether you are a success or not.
Author Lara Blair shows you what equipment is best to use, as well as showing you how an average portrait session with our canine friends will pan out. Lara also gives advice on shooting on location with your dogs, how to prepare your shots and what to offer as extra products for the client, such as framing and printing options.
Overall, this book is full of great pictures of our four legged friends, and provides an insight into the working life of Lara. The book contains lots of useful advice on how best to shoot dog images and how to get them to behave, too.
