Join the Embark Round of the Unleashed Challenges!

Picture this...

You’re heading out to a photo session, feeling confident, inspired and excited.

Tucked away in your brain is an entire library of possible shot ideas, with a solid knowledge of exactly how to create each type of shot.

You'll instinctively know how to find the perfect spot, how to use the light, how to handle the dog and which exposure and focus settings to use - plus what to do when things don’t go according to plan!

This is the outcome we want for you after completing our dog photography Unleashed Challenges. Never again will you stop in the middle of a session, client waiting expectantly, completely out of ideas and struggling to know what to do next.

We’ve put our many years of dog photography experience into creating these world-first interactive dog photography challenges. And for the very first time, we're sharing them with you!

- Charlotte & Craig

"Move beyond the mundane and expand your dog photography horizons with our revolutionary Unleashed Challenges!"

How does it work?

We don't just spring you with a new theme every two weeks and leave you to your own devices.

Instead, we guide you step-by-step through the creation of each shot, with an instructional video, plenty of real-life examples and stories, a downloadable cheat sheet and daily encouragement and inspiration.

Follow the bi-weekly submission timeline and get your images submitted on schedule for the chance to be featured on our social media accounts.

Get valuable exposure for your website, blog or social media accounts if your submission is selected for our Top 10 blog post, published every two weeks.

And to extend your experience, we’re running the Unleashed Challenge Awards! At the end of the 6 month round, a special guest will be judging all completed image portfolios and choosing an overall winner. There’ll be prizes, prizes, prizes!

There will be a pop-up Facebook group for support, inspiration and feedback from your fellow community.

Improve your skills and get your photo-mojo back with the Embark Round of the Unleashed Challenges!

About your teachers

Charlotte and Craig

With 34 years of combined experience as working professional pet photographers (Craig is actually celebrating his 20th year as a pet photographer in 2021), we have a wealth of knowledge to share with you. We’ve spent years shooting for both personal and commercial clients, creating award-winning images in the process. We’ve both completed personal projects and have firmly established (but constantly evolving) styles of our own.

We’re not primarily teachers or business people who have decided to teach photography to make money. We’re photographers first, who also share a passion for helping pet photographers around the world to learn, grow and succeed in their chosen field.
