“Know Your Subject” has always been one of the Photographer Core Knowledge Pillars along
with Camera Basics and Composition. Canine Structure and Movement in addition to Breed
Type are subjects that can take years to develop an eye for. This presentation will give an
overview of some of the defining points and terminology used. We will compare differences in
form and function in several purposefully bred dog breeds. Once you learn some of the key
points you will start to observe dogs in a whole new way.
Knowledge of proper structure and movement will also be useful in photographing all pets to
help them look their best in creating memories for their owners.
I have been a photographer since my college days but converted to digital and went “professional” in 2011 specializing in dogs, dog shows, and performance events. I am a retired Registered Nurse after a long career at the University of Washington Medical Center. I have had Basenjis since 1981 and have competed in Conformation, Obedience, Rally, Agility, Lure Coursing, and have tried Barn Hunt. I am an AKC Breeder of Merit, active member of my National Breed Club, and strive to be a Preservation Breeder including the use of native African Basenjis in my breeding program. I enjoyed attending the FIRST AIM Conference in 2019.
