Dog Agility Show

I know a few of you showed an interest in coming to my agility clubs show in May to practice 'action shots' . The dates of the show are 19th and 20th May and the venue is Ashfeilds Carriage and Polo Club, Green Street, Great Canfield, Essex. CM6 1JU.
My ulterior motive for getting you all there is that I will be putting another charity calendar together for the club this year. Last year's calendar raised £240 for the Essex Air Ambulance but I did struggle to get enough shots of different dogs .... hence where you guys and girls would come in. After the shoot I would like to provide a usb stick to pass around and everyone adds their shots to it. I can then pass this to the club owner who is confident she can identify all our club dogs. This in turn should provide plenty of images for this year and possibly more.
If anyone is interested or if there's anything else you would like to know then please let me know on this thread.
Here's a few examples of what I shot last year.
Hi Jim,
Apologies for uploading only one of your original images but there is a bug with attachments (all but one of them disappear) which will be fixed with next release of software.

From Jim
Competitors normally walk the courses at 8.30 am and judging starts at 9.00 am.
It's a long but fun day. I would recommend bringing a chair but normally there are plenty of refreshments on site.

Hi Jim,

Can do the 19th but not the 20th as we're marshalling the Boxted 10k run.

Evening Jim I plan to attend - could go either day - do you have any recommendation as to which might be better for photography (apart from the weather of course)?

Interested in a car share from Colchester. Can anyone lend me a picnic chair please?

Hi Phil, that's fantastic. Really no difference between either day so it's entirely up to you. I can gladly bring a chair for you

For those planning to attend, my contact number is
07782398465.
Just text or call me on arrival (or if there's any problems finding the venue).
Just a reminder as well should anyone approach is asking to purchase photographs, the official line is that they are not for sale ... we are shooting for Stonebridge club use only.

See you at the weekend.

Jim

Had a great day on Saturday - thanks Jim for the invitation. A bit challenging for me as I don't do much action photography, but I think I got a few decent shots out of it, once I'd photoshopped out all that orange plastic net 'fencing!
