As some of you may know, my wife runs our Mini-Schnauzer Scooter in Dog Agility. Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) Scooter in her first Clean Run of the weekend. Due to a back problem, she has not run in a couple of years and decided to enter the Seattle show last weekend. I generally shoot parts of the shows she is in, and do some haphazard selling. This time I decided to do a bit more, so I spoke with the secretary who was doing the registrations to ask about shooting the show. I was told "no exclusive", which is fine with me, and we chatted about some other shows she works as well. So I show up bright and early Saturday, set up and start shooting. A bit over 1100 images. Sunday afternoon, along about 3PM, one of the show officials comes by to tell me I can't sell anything I have shot. I explain that I had spoken to one of their people, at which time I was informed I spoke to the "wrong person" and we had a "mis-understanding" but that they would try to work it out. A bit later they wander by with the lady who runs the whole shebang, both the Agility side as well as Conformation and she says "no sales, we invited this other person to shoot". I asked if I could shoot a special that someone wanted for their breed magazine which I would then give the gratis, and was told no, the Seattle Kennel Club premium specifically states that they own copyright to all photos taken unless you have express written permission, which presumably the "invited" photographer has. I am trying to work a deal through him to sell, I should know on that score in the next day or two. Lesson learned, be sure to "get it in writing". Second lesson learned, women running these things are just as unreasonable as men. "Mine is bigger than yours" transcends gender. At any rate, it was still fun shooting. Let me know what you think, and if anyone has questions regarding Dog Agility, ask away. This was an indoor show, lighting was certainly not great. As you can see, the overly-noisy D2H truly sucks...........yeah, right....... :wink: Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) Chris, #1 St. Bernard in the country in Agility.

This was her goal, to get both Open Titles this year. As you can see, all breeds can compete and the obstacles are varied. The only bad part is 2 runs a day, and usually several hours in between.
