216 – Let me be quite clear: There are no cats at a Fast CAT event. Not a single feline to be found, I swear!
Nope, Fast CAT — fast coercing ability test — is all about dogs. Dogs of every size, dogs of every color, dogs of every breed and dogs of every origin.
In fact, FastCAT, which is essentially the 100-metre dash for dogs, might be the most inclusive events on the planet.
So how much fun would it be to travel around the United States photographing Fast CAT competitions?
We get to find out in this week's Hair of the Dog podcast when I sit down with Brian Batista of Brian Batista Photography. Based out of Birmingham, Alabama, Brian left behind a 24-year career in information technology to chase dogs with his camera.
What to listen for
3:56 Why Brian learned to create a safe space for rescue dogs
9:15 When he got addicted to dog sports and photography
15:05 How to get started in dog sports photography
19:24 The challenges of managing event photography
34:43 If you don't like road trips, this may not be the gig for you
There's so much more than Fast CAT when it comes to dog sports photography. You can get into dock diving, lure coursing, flyball or agility … and all of it brings the biggest grin to Brian's face.
Are you interested in this niche of pet photography? Tell me on the ‘Gram.
