Unlock the secrets of creating a mood, telling a story, and capturing your pet’s unique personality with dynamic and engaging portraits.
Do you take photos of your pet, or for clients? Do you always feel like something is missing, or that it could “pop” more? In this course, we will break down, discuss, uncover, and delve deeply into the elements that make up a photo.
The more we can peek “behind the curtain” of photography, the more you can begin to define and reliably create your style, whether that’s dramatic, moody, whimsical, or joyful, creating photos that move and engage your audience with that “wow” factor.

Most people believe that editing is the key to a great photo, when in reality, it isn’t. What makes a truly great photo is a cohesive collection of different elements, brought together to create a mood, or tell a story, guiding our audience through our image in a way that engages, surprised or delights them.
I’m Emily, and with me are Journey and Loki.

Welcome to “Next Level” pet photography. This is, for me, one of the most exciting courses. Yes, more exciting than the Photoshop course.
I sincerely hope you enjoy the elements of this course as much as I do. It combines everything I have learnt about pet photography and how to create stunning, engaging and dynamic images, and reveals them for you in a series of lessons packed full of information and examples.
A: Although it covers many of the foundation skills required to take great photos, it is not designed with the beginner photographer in mind. You would be much better checking out the Improve Your Pet Photography course and starting there.
A: Of course! In fact, the majority of the lessons focus on elements of the subject or the scene. That being said, the kind of photos that I take, and that I believe are most moving, dynamic and engaging are those taken with a DSLR or mirrorless camera.
A: Of course! Although it might be a bit more difficlt to make your cat pose in a certain way, or to get certain expressions from your cat.

No. This course focuses on elements during the photoshoot, as I strongly believe this has a much greater impact on the quality, mood and impact of your photo (or at least will save you hours and hours in editing to try and achieve that mood!)
