For those who want to combine their passion for both animals and photography, pet photography is the perfect solution. Photographing pets can be a fun-filled and incredibly rewarding experience, but it has its challenges, as well. Like any kind of portraiture, there is both technical knowledge and aesthetic skill to acquire, including knowledge of your equipment and subject, and the ability to create strong and creative compositions for images with maximum impact. Additionally, pet photographers need to learn how to communicate and collaborate with a variety of animals (with very different personalities!) to produce compelling imagery.

What Students are saying:

At first, I thought this course would be something I would watch for awhile but not the entire thing. Boy, was I wrong! Every segment was jam packed with such valuable information, and Norah's candid style was invaluable in working through the decisions about whether (and how) to wade into pet photography. I found myself madly scribbling notes, but ultimately bought the course so I could re-visit the segments not easily captured via notes. Well worth it!
