Tips and Tricks for a Successful Pet Portrait Session
Register Here.

Course #MI03
Angela Lawson, CPP

Portraits are not just about the people. More and more, you're seeing man's best friend, the family cat or another animal included in the photo – after all, pets are family too. As photographers, you're called upon to capture those special moments and the people – and pets – who create them.

This workshop teaches you how to go beyond the technical aspects of photographing animals and gives you some tried-and-tried tips on working with the family pet. Discuss how to feel comfortable, and make everyone else comfortable during the shoot. Explore the challenges of our furry friends and learn how to overcome these.  

Pet photography, either by itself or as part of family portraits, is a growing niche. This class is your opportunity to master the art!
