Limited Class Size!


  • DSLR or mirrorless camera body system with at least 24MP
  • Lenses- I would suggest an 85mm 1.8 at the shortest, and anything longer with an F stop of 1.8 or wider
  • Comfortable around dogs of all breeds and temperaments
  • A camera that has 12+ frames per second is ideal for action shots
  • Clothes and footing that are able to get dirty
  • Tick/bug repellent
  • Laptop with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop
  • Moderate Photoshop knowledge at minimum. I wont be doing any basic teachings of Photoshop functions, and my images sometimes have 20+ layers so an adequate knowledge in photoshop is key!
  • Wacom tablet helps, but I edit on a track pad a lot of the time
