If you’ve fallen in love with taking photos & know they could be better, but don’t know where to start?
You’re in the right place.
This self-guided course can be taken in your own time, with lifetime access.
It has been designed for anyone wanting to master the very basics of pet photography, even if you’re only using a phone and just want some nicer photos for yourself, or if you got a new DSLR and have no idea what all the settings do.
Our photography courses are designed to help photographers across all skill levels to perfect the fundamentals.
Here’s what the course offers:
Move the slider to see photo comparisons, showing the kinds of photos you (might) be
taking now, compared to the kinds of photos you could be taking by the end of the course.
Then you will find invaluable information in this course.
I’m Emily, and with me are Journey and Loki.
I am a dog-obsessed former teacher (with a Masters degree in teaching) who fell in love with photographing my dogs, and then other people’s pets, and it seemed only natural to combine my love for teaching, with my love for photography.
I designed this course with you in mind. As a former primary school teacher I know how important it is to understand the foundations of any skill and when I saw many friends on Facebook taking photos of their dogs that could be so much better with just some small tweaks and changes to the way they used light, or their composition, or their perspective, I built this course.
Yes! Maybe even more so than if you have a fancy camera! Because there are some limitations when using phone cameras, knowing about using natural light, composing your scene, getting the right perspective, and even basic editing techniques will be much more important in creating stunning photos.
Definitely. I cover the most important camera settings in the course, from focus settings to getting off auto or priority modes, and into manual mode for complete control.
Yes! There are suggestions and advice for dogs without a stay and puppies, as well as a complete “stay” lesson and a bonus lesson to edit out a leash, just incase you need to leave your pup on leash.
Actually I’ve never been asked this but I’m pre-empting the question. Of course you can! Many (if not all) of the concepts apply to other animals. Using natural light, perspective, composition, even getting expression, can be applied to the majority of our animal companions.
Maybe not snakes.
