So what exactly is RealShoots?

The RealShoots Complete Course is a series of 10 episodes, each featuring a real shoot.
Basically, I walk you through real-life pet photo sessions with clients and their dogs!

You'll watch over my shoulder as I shoot a full-length dog photography session. I explain each step of the process and give you a unique insight into how I deal with challenges to create effortlessly gorgeous images every single time.

This high quality training takes you step by step through a range of different situations and locations giving you practical instruction on what to do in any scenario, ways to work with all types of dog personalities and even how to handle those pesky humans, too!

"Thanks to RealShoots my editing skills have improved dramatically along with my understanding of how to assess the natural light when shooting. RealShoots is the next best thing to in-person mentoring - perhaps even better because you can rewind and replay episodes again and again and for a fraction of the cost! "

Frequently Asked Questions

RealShoots is focused only on the art of photography - the shooting and editing side of things. If you need assistance with starting or running a photography business, including branding, marketing, pricing or sales, I highly recommend signing up to the Hair of the Dog Academy.

Once you’ve made payment, you get instant online access to the entire course. You can watch it anytime, on your computer or tablet through a web browser.

Nope, this course is entirely self-paced. Watch the episodes in order, or jump around and watch whichever ones are relevant to you at the time. Students have told me they watch or re-watch relevant episodes just before heading out to shoots in similar locations or with similar dogs.

There sure is! Available for iOS or Android, there’s a free app called Kajabi where you can watch courses and save your progress, no matter where you are.

When you purchase the course you’ll be asked to create an account with your email address and password, if you don’t already have an account. You’ll receive a welcome email with a link to log in to your account on Unleashed Education. Or from any page on the website, just click the Login link at the top right to log into your account. If you’re already logged in, you’ll see a little circle at the top right instead (you can upload your profile photo to appear here) and under the dropdown menu, select My Courses. You’ll see the RealShoots Complete Course along with any other learning resources you’ve purchase previously.

The course is entirely accessed online through your web browser - no special programs are required on your computer. Inside the course, the content is divided into sections - one for each of the 10 individual episodes of RealShoots. In each episode, there’s the main shooting video where you can also view and download the Learning Guide PDF for the episode, and sign up for free daily tips relating to the episode, plus a link to the final image gallery. Each episode also has at least two editing tutorial videos plus a fun quiz that you can complete online.

Yes! All videos (shooting and editing) in the course have English closed captions, so you can catch every word or watch the videos with no sound and still follow along easily.

The professionally produced videos included in the course are very shareable, so to ensure the content is not distributed illegally, the videos are not available for download and must be watched online in the course. If you have very poor internet connectivity and are struggling to stream the content, please let me know and we can work out an alternative solution.

Yes - you are more than welcome to print out the PDF downloads from each episode. Some of my students have had the downloads printed and bound and they look fantastic! They’re a great printed resource to accompany the digital content.

Unleashed Education caters to a worldwide audience, with the vast majority of our students residing in North America. Unfortunately the platform we use doesn’t allow for multiple currencies, and since US dollars are more universally familiar to our student group as a whole than Australian dollars, that’s the currency we use.

Visit or just type into Google “convert x USD to YOURCURRENCY (i.e. AUD)” for an instant and easy conversion.

Sure - just send a message through from the contact page!
