Pets and People Photography


Class Description

Discover a whole new market for your photography business: Pets! Vicki Taufer will teach you how to bring in new work by including pets into your child, family, and portrait work. This course will show you how to work with your clients and their furry (or feathery or scaly) friends to make fabulous pictures. Vicki will demonstrate how to bring in new clients with her Dog Days of Summer program, a charity event she runs to help local animal shelters. You'll learn how she created a new market for pet photography in her town, and how YOU can do the same in yours.
