Your pet deserves beautiful photos...

Does it feel like no matter how many presets you use, or YouTube videos you follow, you just can’t get your photos to look…. right?

About Inspawration Photography School

Journey, Emily (me!), Loki

Four years ago, I quit my job as a primary school teacher to fly across the world with Loki and travel Europe while living in a van. 

During that time, I took thousands of photos, my old Australian Shepherd crossed the rainbow bridge and I added Journey to our adventure. Throughout all of this I realised how incredibly important all the photos of my dogs are. 

And how many mistakes I’d been making along the way. I set out to create photography courses and classes for every pet owner, whether they ever want to go professional or not, to help them take better photos of their pets.

I didn’t stop there. As a teacher of children, I know we learn better together, in a supportive environment where we are encouraged to play, explore, create, make mistakes, get feedback and celebrate our achievements. With this in mind, I built the Learning Community. 

My goal, for all my students, is for you to

  • feel more confident with
    • camera settings
    • lighting
    • creating a mood and
    • developing your own personal style
  • have  a range of editing tools and rationale for why you might edit certain ways
  • grow creatively, to be inspired and in turn inspire others
  • capture and create beautiful images of your pets (and the pets of your clients!
