“Why does watching a dog be a dog fill one with happiness?” wrote novelist Jonathan Safran Foer. If you’ve ever watched your faithful four-legged friend go about their day, you’ll understand just what he meant! But for those exhibiting at The Photographic Dog Show, 20th – 23rd June 2019, they’ve taken it a whole step further, they’ve captured that happiness.
What is The Photographic Dog Show?
The renowned photographic editor and curator, Zelda Cheatle, has brought together a stunning exhibition of works from some of the world’s finest photographers, who also happen to share a love of dogs.
Hosted at Christ Church and St. Stephen’s on Battersea Park Road, London, all photographs sold at The Photographic Dog Show will raise proceeds for Battersea Dogs Home and Canine Rescue.
Feel Inspired by The Photographic Dog Show
Love photography? Love animals? Maybe pet photography is the career you’ve been looking for! Included in the exhibition are works by Magnum superstar Elliott Erwitt, legendary fashion photographer Bruce Weber, Hoxton Mini Press founder Martin Usborne, and many others.
The beauty of visiting exhibitions is the unique opportunity to take in technical and aesthetic inspiration from the pieces on display. If you’re a Semi-Professional Photographer looking for their niche, or a budding Amateur Photographer that’s keeping their options open, spending an afternoon at an exhibition that focuses on a certain aspect of photography can help navigate what kind of photographer you strive to be.
Making the initial leap from amateur to professional photographer and setting-up your own business can be daunting, so it’s important to harness your skills and build an awesome portfolio in your chosen area. After all, you’ll want to be the best freelance photographer you can be!
If you’re interested in pet photography, we’d thoroughly recommend popping along to The Photographic Dog Show on 20th – 23rd June at Christ Church and St. Stephen’s on Battersea Park Road, London, SW11 3BF.
