Dog Sports Photography

Please click on the link below to find and view your photos. Every effort is made to shoot 1-3 images of each participating dog at his/her best possible performance. However, at times there are certain situations that cannot be controlled, such as weather, position of the sun, set up of the test, etc. There are also times when an opportunity for a photograph simply may be missed, or may not be possible at all under the given circumstances. When this happens, the owner or handler may request that photographs be taken after the test is done and the last dog has run. Every effort will be made to meet this request.

Cynthia Lyons attends shows and tests as an independent free lance photographer at no fee or expense to the sponsoring club or organization. Having participated in the sport of dogs as both an owner and a handler, Cynthia understands the purpose of the test or show and works cooperatively with the event chairperson, judges and participants so as not to disrupt the integrity of the event or the performance of the dog. It is asked that the dog owners and handlers please understand that customized photographs and specific requests, such as a water entry, specific jump, etc., cannot be taken. The set up for photography during a live test or show is chosen specifically with the cooperation of the judges and the club, and is done in such a manner as not to compromise the dog’s performance or score. It must remain that way. Any owner, handler, or judge may request that no photo be taken of a dog if they feel it is in the best interest of the dog’s performance.

Cynthia is also available by request. A minimum fee of $100 per day will be charged if requested to attend a show, field event, club training day, or an organized group photo day. Depending upon the location, event or number of days, expenses for travel may also be included in the fee. Requests to photograph individual dogs or customized situations will be happily accommodated. Prints and CDs are not included in the fee and must be ordered separately.
