Having photographed more than 1000 Adelaide dogs since 2013, I’ve certainly explored a few pet-friendly photoshoot locations in Adelaide!
These are my favourites!

Warriparinga is especially great for those dogs that can be reactive or easily over-stimulated
We hardly ever see other dogs (or even people) there so it’s a great option for those dogs that may be re-active or over-stimulated by other dogs. The creek acts as a bit of a barrier to make it semi-secure for off-leash action shots. For those of you whose dogs need to stay on lead.. that’s cool too, we’ll just use a long one and remove it in Photoshop.
The location changes with the seasons, but you’ll always find a small vineyard, an old stone wall to add some texture to your background, an open, yet semi-secure space and the sun setting behind the gumtree installation.
This is what else you’ll find depending on the time of year..
Dogs are allowed in some sections of Mariolta Conservation Park. I’m often down the bottom along the creek beside the nature playground for photoshoots, which by the way is one of my most beautiful backdrops if you want neutral tones in your images. You can follow the Fourth Creek Walk from there to the First Falls carpark as long as your dog remains on lead.
Why I love it for Photoshoots?..
If you’re after a beach photoshoot with your dog in Adelaide, Grange is my number one pick!
It’s less hectic than Glenelg and Semaphore, there’s a small grass patch to start at before risking wet dogs, it has a nice little wall alongside the footpath that photographs wonderfully.. the path through the dunes looks great at sunset and the long stretch of sand in both directions allows plenty of beautiful backgrounds too.
Check out these recent shoots at Grange for an example of what we might create for you!..
