Training and Workshops

Paul has qualified to the highest level (Fellowship) with three of the main photography organisations and with a string of significant pet photography awards behind him, his training programmes are always in demand.

Advanced Pet Photography

By invitation only, (typically for those photographers that have attended a previous 2 day workshop)

1 Day Workshop - Pet Photography for Absolute Beginners

This 1 Day Workshop is aimed at people new to photography with a real interest in taking better pet photographs.  It will cover camera basics, animal pyschology fundamentals and lots of tips and tricks to really get the most out of your pet subjects.  It is aimed at more the hobbyist/beginner rather than the professional.

2 Day Workshop Creative Pet Photography Training

This intensive course is aimed at those professional photographers or keen amateurs that want to enhance their creative pet photography skills and covers many areas including camera techniques, pet behaviour patterns, choosing and maximising environments, pet strategies to name just a few. Pet models (dogs, cats and horses) and chocolate biscuits are provided. Numbers on the course are strictly limited to ensure that animal welfare is taken into consideration and in the interest of those attendees. Waterproofs and old clothing essential! Please see our UK and International pet dates for availability or phone for further details or to make a booking. We are conscious that these courses do get booked up quickly, hence, if you would like advance notification of future training dates please send through your details on the request info web page and you will be notified in advance of any training dates being listed.

"Why not learn from one of the most respected pet photographer's in the UK? There are very few photographers that have consistently been awarded for their pet imagery year upon year, both within the UK and internationally and even fewer with a Fellowship distinction to their name in pet portraiture.  I attended one of his early workshops and gained an immense amount of knowledge over the two days and would not hesitate in recommending one of his workshops."
