RealShoots Model Application

What is RealShoots?

As well as being a professional pet photographer servicing private and commercial clients, I also teach pet photography to students worldwide.

RealShoots is my latest and most exciting teaching venture to date!

RealShoots is a series of 10 “live” shooting tutorial videos for pet photographers, presented in an online course.

Real life pet photography sessions are filmed by my super talented videographers and made into an instructional video.

How does it work?

If your dog is selected, your pet photography session will run similarly to one of my paid client sessions. I’ll work with you and your dog to shoot a diverse range of images which may include action, portraits, candids, dog & owner and many other styles – check out my Portfolio to get an idea of types of images we might be creating from your session.

The video footage and audio taken at the photo session will be combined with still images, titles and voiceovers, and made into an instructional resource for pet photographers around the world to watch and learn from.

Sounds good, but what do I get?

As you and your dog play the starring role, you will have lifetime complimentary access to watch the video once it has been released.

Since this is a real life photo session, we’ll end up with some beautiful images of your dog. After the episode has been released, they’ll be uploaded to an online gallery for you to view.

You’ll be able to download web resolution, watermarked images to share with your friends and family. You’ll also have $300 in order credit to spend on prints and products!

What’s the catch?

Well, there isn’t really one, but you will need to sign a commercial model release for both yourself and your dog, which allows me to use the footage and images taken commercially. No scripted acting is required, you just need to act naturally while being filmed and photographed.
