With a camera in your hands, a furry subject that won’t stay still, changing light conditions, and the expectant owner standing nearby – it’s tough to apply everything you’ve learned! Watching RealShoots will help you put all the information together – simply, easily, seamlessly. (Prepare for everything you’ve learned to make a lot more sense.)
What to do when you arrive, how to greet the dog, where to begin
How to solve specific problems with specific pets
How to capture expression - not just photos of “a dog” but photos of that exact dog and their unique personality
How to structure a session to get a variety of images, and also respond in real time when things don’t go according to plan
Soft skills like how to talk to and involve owners (even if you’re not a people person)
RealShoots are a complete window into how to run an actual shoot, including all the X factors that reading alone cannot prepare you for. This is education you can’t get anywhere else!
"Charlotte, I loved watching the shooting video, the dog is gorgeous, you were awesome, the images are breathtaking and I feel totally inspired to try out some of the things you did. The guide that accompanies the shoot is great too, as is the post processing video!"
Craig Bullock, New Zealand
"When it's not feasible to travel half-way around the world to learn from one of the best dog photographers, this training series is the next best thing! The quality of the videos is top notch, and Charlotte talks you through the entire session, explaining how she chooses locations and settings based on the light and environment and how she interacts with the dogs and their owners. The session videos coupled with the editing tutorials show the entire story from setting up the shot and taking the photograph to editing to achieve the final vision."
Megan Murray, USA
"Loved the ability to watch the session as it was being photographed and really appreciated the culling process video. Excellent editing video. Charlotte really has an eye not only for photography but also for bringing out the best in the photo. She's enjoyable to watch and listen to and you can tell she really loves what she does. This course is excellent and covers a lot of material!"
Debby Herold, USA
"I'm not a great learner when it comes to online courses but seriously Charlotte's courses are the best I have ever seen. They are so great and informative and have helped me improve my photography skills so much!"
Alicia Ralph, Australia
