If you have found this page the chances are you have a passion for dog photography. It can be challenging at times, right? Overcoming those challenges and taking your photography to the next level is exactly what you will find with the CatsDog acceleration coaching.


For the first time ever, Cat & Michael – the duo that make up CatsDog – are sharing their secrets with you. After nearly 7 years in business, their international experiences of photographing every kind of dog, in every imaginable weather condition, are being packaged into this jam-packed day of learning and adventure. This fun and engaging workshop will start at the CatsDog studio in Preston and finish up at one of Lancashire’s beautiful local parks, where you will have the opportunity to be guided by Cat and Mike, while you put your learnings into practice.
