Tip of the Day

Bite-sized pet photography tips freshly delivered daily

Are you the kind of person who likes absorbing little pieces of information at a time? Maybe you don’t have time to sit down and read an e-book, or perhaps an international pet photography retreat isn’t in the budget?

I have the perfect solution for you!

Every weekday, I post a new pet photography tip on my super popular Learn Pet Photography Instagram account. I cover all kinds of topics such as shooting action, working with various types of lighting and dog handling. Each image posted is usually accompanied by the full camera settings.
