Photography is a key element to help a host truly showcase their Sniff spot and attract new guests.

Photography for smaller spots
Small spaces will be the most common and rented Sniff spots within the community. Making sure you are showing clear images that showcase the entire area is key.
Wide angle shots that show all aspects of the available area.
Shoot from a corner - this technique shows a broad range of space and adds dimensionality to the photo. Shooting flat can make a space seem smaller than in real life, while corners help give a sense of true perspective.
Photography for large spots
Large spaces are for the adventurous, and the images should help support this.
Large wide open shots showcasing just how vast the Sniff spot is. We want to show everything that is possible and all the fun that can be had.
Highlighting aspects such as creeks, woodlands, tracks are a great way for future guests to see and plan their visit.
Time to set yourself apart from the rest. This is where you can show what makes your Sniff spot a higher quality space.
Amenities can be for both the owners and the dogs. From benches for guests through to dog agility training equipment.
Dogs are encouraged in secondary images and we recommend having shots of them running wild and enjoying the space.
If the Sniff spot has amenities this is another great opportunity to show them off.
These shots can be guest submitted to help show a variance in dog breeds to we are not being selective.
