Your Individual Coaching

Learn dog photography by my side

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 session, you can ask me any questions you may have. I will share with you my experience of dog photography, from the preparation of a session with a dog to my post-processing on Photoshop.

Mentoring session

My personal coaching offers

Prior to the coaching, we will discuss your level and what you would like to achieve. My mentoring sessions are all outdoors, with times varying depending on the season and how much time you want to spend with me. With my many years of experience, I will be able to guide you through the photo session where I will give you my best advice so that you can understand the process of making dog portraits. After your coaching, you will probably have questions that you didn’t think of on the day of the course, but I am always here to help you, whether online or in person.

Online coaching

The session will be an informal discussion of two hours, during which we will cover the aspects that are most difficult for you. The session will be recorded so that you do not forget anything.


Here are some of the topics we can discuss:

  • Working with clients in dog photography
  • How to run a photography business
  • Dog body language, poses, expressions
  • Equipment and settings for dog portraits
  • Workflow and preparation for a photo shoot
  • Composing a portrait and working with natural light

Kind words from my clients

Olivier Jouaud

“It took me 11 years of self-taught photography to get past the workshop stage. Well, I don’t think I could have found anything better, especially for this particular 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 others to use her services, 200% satisfaction guaranteed.”

Marieke Hoeijmakers

“I attended the Stockholm workshop on 10-11 September 2022 organised by Tuss and given by Audrey, and it was GREAT! Our group consisted of 9 students and Tuss opened their house to us so that Audrey could do the theory parts. The two days were divided into two parts, the theory and the shoot. The theory and the shooting were very instructive and interesting. We had models of very different breeds, but appropriate for the two shooting locations. Audrey has great didactic skills, she can explain things clearly, calmly and in an interesting way. I particularly liked that she invited everyone not to be shy about asking questions during the theory and to ask for help and feedback during the shooting. The workshop days were packed, about 12 hours a day, but they went by so quickly! I learned so much and had so much fun!”


“I had already been following Audrey’s work for some time and I was tempted by her workshop! The organisation is perfectly conducted with a steady but human rhythm, a good alternation of theory, practice on the field and on the computer. The shooting locations are very well chosen and easy to find. She is also keen to help each person develop their own style, so she makes all the tools and know-how available so that participants are able to produce beautiful images that are their own and not just a copy and paste of Audrey’s work! The summary booklet is invaluable in order to be able to take back the methods learned during the workshop in a calm environment.

“I discovered Audrey’s photos on Facebook and immediately loved her work, so when she organised a workshop in my area, I jumped at the chance! I am a dog photographer, but only as an amateur, not a pro at all, nevertheless I managed to follow the day without any difficulties. Audrey is a very talented photographer; available, she takes the time to see what each participant is doing, and to explain what works and what doesn’t… She has an extraordinary eye for making the right setting, she is patient and gentle with the dogs, she teaches you all those little tricks that will make you a better photographer and that you don’t necessarily think about at the beginning, whether it’s during the shooting or in post-processing. I looked forward to this day, I had a great day with a lovely person, full of humour, and learnt a lot!”
