On-line Pet Photography Course at the Bryan Peterson School of Photography

Ready to find the light and take your pet photography to the next level?  My class will show you how to use light, perspective, the environment, composition, color and mood to create compelling and beautiful pet portraits. Capturing the personality and spirit of a pet with a touch of artistry is key to creating memorable portraits. It’s all about slowing down, connecting with animals and telling a story.
