About This Class

This course is for you if you have a dog or cat and love to take pictures of pets.

This course is for you if you have just started out taking photos and your DSLR camera still feels a little bit like a technical mystery to you.

This course is for you if you mainly use your cell phone camera for taking pictures of your pet.

This course is for you if you want to learn how to dramatically increase the quality of your photos with little effort.

This course is for you if you want to learn how to make some money from your photos.

This course is for you if you want to create that special picture of your pet that will remain an everlasting memory.

I created this course to be as easy as possible in order to encourage my students to be more creative. There will be some sections on the technical aspect of your DSLR camera, because you need a basic understanding of their functions, but there are many more aspects that deserve our attention.

I will teach you the most important rules for developing your creative eye and how to bring your photographic visions to live. You will learn some fundamental rules, tips and tricks about how to take that perfect picture of your dog or cat. 

I will also show you how to set up your own photo studio in your living room, in order to take amazing photos of your pet.

Last but not least, you will learn you some simple but powerful image retouching skills using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

I am looking forward to seeing you in the course – and so does my little co-host.
