Guest blogger Mingo – How to behave on a photo shoot

January 18, 2016 by becca.lazar 1 Comment

I have had a busy week, with walks on the beach, chasing the post man, and I modelled in a CHC photo shoot for a brand new holiday cottage coming soon. It’s not easy being a model; sitting still, looking at the camera, keeping out of the way, not things that come naturally for a Jack Russell. Anyway I thought I would put together some top tips for any other models out there dreaming of their ‘big break’…

  2. One – Make sure your beard is all going in one direction, there should be a human on hand to help with this, if not bark a few times and someone should come running (you are the star after all).

  4. TwoPerfect the art of lying down, a bit like Derek Zoolander it’s good to have a few different lying down positions under your belt. I call this one ‘Long Legs’.

  6. ThreeEat on demand, its a hard job but somebody has got to do it.

  8. FourThe art of sitting, it’s not about comfort, here it is about looking good.


Well, I hope that has helped create a few budding stars, it seems I may be roped into a few more of these shoots so watch this space! I have also rather enjoyed the spotlight here on the blog, if you’re lucky I will tell you about my favourite local dog friendly pub next!
