Last Saturday I had the pleasure of spending my day photographing the Splash Dog Dock Diving event at the Lake Arrowhead Pet Fair. This was such a blast to watch and be apart of. There were lots of amazing athletes out there and everyone had a great time! Minus getting a pretty bad sun burn it was a beautiful day and so much fun to watch the dogs enjoying themselves and the spectators applauding and cheering with amazement!
As expected the atmosphere was fast pace and everyone was eager to get their pups in the pool and start doing practice jumps before the heats took place. The cool thing about this event is that spectators that wanted to try with their dogs could, and some loved it and took to the dock instantly while others preferred to just sit and watch.
When I photograph these competitions most of the time my favorite spot is right at the end of the pool to get those head on shots. I also like to go on the right or left side near the end of the pool to get a little side perspective. It was a great day full of action! If you are ever curious on how to get started with your dog in the world of dock diving you can always research clubs in your area and go from there!
