Workshop with Ria Putzker and Audrey Bellot

I got to know Ria Putzker through social media and I have always admired her work. This year we decided to organize a dog photography workshop together for the first time. It was a very great experience!

Dog photography workshop

For those who do not know the meaning of Workshop, it is simply a training where we can learn about a specific field, as far as we are concerned: dog photography. Our workshop took place over two full days in Fontainebleau and Paris with 9 participants, beginners, amateurs and professionals.

Ria Putzker has been a professional photographer since 2017 but has been photographing dogs for many years. She has her own style and knows many techniques both in shooting and in image processing. She is located in Vienna, Austria.

Our workshop

It was my very first workshop over two days and the last one of 2019. As always, we started with a theoretical part where we shared the themes with Ria, then we went to the forest of Fontainebleau to realize the first shooting of the practical part!

For the shootings we selected several models of all breeds, colors and sizes. It was important for us to have a great diversity of dogs for the participants, because the work is never the same depending on each one, although they all ask for one thing: their treats!

Here are some results from this first part:

The next morning, we had another practical shoot, but this time in the heart of Paris: at the Louvre Museum and the Royal Palace. We had new models, all as beautiful as each other. Here are some results from our participants:

After this last shoot, it’s time for us to go back to the venue in order to edit these photos. We showed with Ria our ways of retouching our photos, also taken during this workshop, on Lightroom and Photoshop. Here are some results of photographs we took this weekend:

My 10 best photos of 2019

This year was very strong in emotions, trips and meetings. I discovered what my universe was, what I wanted to say through my dog pictures.

My first shelter dog

When I started taking dog photos, I never thought of having my own dog. I think it’s like everything, you have to feel ready. When I got 21, I decided to adopt a shelter dog. Yes, but why in a refuge? Here’s the reason.

How I became a dog photographer

Two questions that I am often asked, by what means I managed to be a photographer but also why I chose this job in which I have flourished for almost 2 years!
