Individual coachingIN PERSON OR ONLINE
New perspectives & adventures
Need to see something different? New images for your portfolio? Each personal coaching is tailored to your wishes and needs. Of course, I adapt to your level of photography in order to give you precise advice. During a private coaching, you will be able to ask me all the questions you might have. I will share with you my experience in dog photography, from preparing a session with an owner and his dog, how to capture and create emotion in your images, to my post-processing workflow on Photoshop.
options to choose from
What you can learn during individual coaching
I will share my knowledge about my vision of dog photography. We will talk about basic topics such as the parameters I use for different situations, contrast, composition and light. I will explain how to create emotion in your photographs, what postures and expressions I look for during my sessions.
During our outdoor shoots, I will take the time to accompany you during your shots. We will see together how to guide the owner to get the best out of our subject, how to use natural light and make specific composition choices to create visually appealing images.
I will explain my complete Photoshop workflow and show you the following things: importing photos, sorting and selecting, basic adjustments (colors, contrasts), creating the dog’s selection, improving details, tone processing, dodge and burn, exporting for print and web…
These mentoring sessions and the shared topics will be tailored to your level of experience.

What they thought of their mentoring
“A beautiful meeting with an accomplished professional. She knew how to adapt to my needs, to be reactive to last minute constraints, to show patience, adaptability towards everyone (canine models, their masters & me) and total mastery of her subject. I learned a lot at her side. The most : she remains available afterwards to complete this beautiful experience. A passionate professional and a great investment to make! I also received her book very well done and very complementary to this face-to-face training, as well as her online courses regularly completed to continue to deepen the knowledge and acquire beautiful skills over time.”
“I participated in the Valensole Workshop in July 2021, a great evening spent with this young, talented and dynamic photographer, Audrey Bellot, who helped me learn a lot about dog photography! I recommend her 100%! And thanks to Audrey I now have beautiful pictures as a souvenir of our dogs! Audrey is a lovely person who takes the time to explain and her online coaching was just perfect. I would definitely recommend her!”
“It took me 11 years of self-taught photography to get past the workshop. Well, I think I couldn’t find a better way, especially for this canine specification. In addition to being overflowing with talent, Audrey masters her discipline, exudes calmness and humility under the cover of a sharp pedagogy that is attentive to our needs and questions. I can only recommend to others to use her services, 200% satisfaction guaranteed.”
“I was able to participate in a workshop in January 2020. I was able to learn how to manage and apprehend a dog shoot from start to finish, to improve my shots, to know how to highlight the dog in different types of environments. And all this in beautiful locations that she knew how to select wonderfully! For the post-processing, I didn’t know anything about photoshop and she was able to be patient to explain it all to me. With these two days, I made huge progress and I never thought I would get to this point.”
Sarah M. Photographie
“A talented young photographer. If you are a photographer and you want to improve your skills in the field of wildlife photography, then the Workshop is for you. In one day, you will learn a lot of things with her, which will allow you to learn new techniques and improve your shots… Shooting or Workshop, you will have a great time with a lovely person, full of humour and animal lover!”
Corinne RD Photographie
“I had been following Audrey’s work for a while, hoping one day to attend a workshop with her. Since February 2021, it’s done! Audrey is really passionate about her work and transmits her know-how with professionalism and kindness. She does not hesitate to answer all our questions and also gives some tips. After this day between theory and practice, we finished our workshop with the retouching module on Lightroom and Photoshop. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, Audrey adapts to your level. To sum up, I can only recommend Audrey’s training courses which have taught me a lot and allowed me to evolve in my work.”
