NEW Pet Photography Curriculum Now Available

More than 67% of American households own at least one pet, and people are spending more money than ever on their four-legged friends. From specialty foods to whimsical clothing, the number of products and services available for pet owners has grown considerably over the past couple years. It’s all part of the “pet humanization” trend, which is a fancy way of saying that people are increasingly viewing their pets much in the same way they’d view a child or close friend. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that pet photography has grown in popularity right alongside these other products and services!

If you’ve ever wanted to combine your passion for animals with your love of photography, check out the brand new pet photography curriculum, now available exclusively on PPA’s education platform.

The online courses are led by Kim Hartz M.Photog.Cr., CPP, a veteran of the pet photography business with over a decade of experience, as well as Arica Dorff, Cr.Photog., a traveling pet portrait photographer who uses a unique, mobile business model. Dig into these online classes, assignments, and readings that help you learn how to:  

  • Plan for a pet photography session
  • Understand pet behavior and safe handling 
  • Pose pets during sessions and select appropriate props 
  • Build a profitable pet photography business
