Dogs and The Business of Pet Photography
An exclusive four part presentation by one of North America’s premier dog photographers, Margaret Bryant
Join us for an exclusive four part series. You will discover the insider secrets to starting and maintaining a successful dog portrait business.
Margaret knows how to create high impact and creative portraits of dogs that clients love. When it comes to creating portraits that sell, Margaret explains that you have to give your clients something they can’t buy elsewhere.
This is the key to success. Make your style unique and separate your photography from the pack.
Not everyone knows how to create portraits of dogs that stand out. Join us and Margaret will show you how to blend personality, interaction and art.
“Dogs fill my heart. They have humor, whimsy and a joy of life. They live in the moment. They want nothing more than to eat, to play and to be with us. They make our lives more meaningful. I started my photography business in 1998, and in that time have photographed hundreds of dogs (some cats and horses too). Margaret.”
