For Photographers Since 2007 I have taught hundreds of photographers from around the world, in intensive workshops, speaking engagements and mentoring sessions in cities around the U.S.. I also wrote the first pet photography book geared toward those who make photographing pets not just their passion, but their profession. Although I am now retired from teaching workshops and mentoring, I have a resource for you that has helped many photographers in your position. Pet Photography Book: Beautiful Beasties, A Creative Guide to Modern Pet Photography, by Wiley Publishing I wrote a 350-page book geared toward advanced amateurs and professional pet photographers. The book is overflowing with information on every topic imaginable pertaining to pet photography. You'll be hard-pressed to find a more in-depth book on 'how to become a pet photographer'. Plus, it's a fun and easy read, and reads like a good friend is telling you everything you need to know, in an upbeat, casual way. In the book I talk about: -the history of pet photography, -equipment needed, -working with animals from a behavioral standpoint, -pre-session checklists, -photography basics, -composition and creative shoot ideas, -common pet photography challenges including legal needs and pet photography contracts, -post-production work with archiving and software, -developing personal style, -going pro and portfolio building, -expenses, working with clients, -pricing, -products, -branding, -marketing, -strategies to increase revenue and -how to deal with competition and colleagues. The book has been highly rated by readers on Amazon an other sites, and you can pick it up on Amazon here. Happy reading!
