PPC Workshop: Unleashed! 8/13/22

Jen Hargrove, M. PHOTOG. CR., CPP

Unleashed! Pet Photography (Posing, lighting, marketing, sales) with Jen Hargrove, M. PHOTOG. CR., CPP

Get the opportunity to watch and photograph a dog session from beginning to end. Begin with the initial consultation, that all-important “meet and greet” with your canine clients. Discover how to make both humans and dogs comfortable while they get familiar with you and your studio and learn why we prefer our clients Unleashed.

The class will cover:

  1. camera and lens selections,

  2. lighting, background

  3. props as you learn what to use and when.

  4. explore how to photograph dogs for their people and for print competitions.

Before you’re done, we’ll also discuss in person and zoom sales, our traveling/on-location and pop-up studios, products, pricing, marketing, and what we do to thank our canine clients and their humans.
