Meet Emily

About Me (Emily!)

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.

As a former primary school teacher I know how important it is to understand the foundations of any skill, breaking down information and sharing it in a way that is easy to follow. I know as well that everyone has their own favourite ways of learning: whether sitting down and working through an online course, or having the accountability of a time and date to attend a workshop.

I can’t wait to share my passion for creating beautiful portraits of our pets with you.


What our students are saying


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.

Or turtles.
