People never tire of viewing photos of animals, and the market for pet portraiture is hot. If you love animals and photography, pet portraiture is the perfect marriage of your passions.

Whether you are interested in starting your own pet photography business or are an enthusiast who wants to take better pictures of your pets, this book is for you. Taking pictures of animals requires a skill set different from that used in other forms of photography, and in this book, author Nicole Begley (Wexford, PA) introduces you to the tips and tricks you need to succeed.

You’ll learn how to prepare for your sessions (in-studio and outdoors) coax picture-worthy behaviors from pets (they don’t take direction quite as well as human subjects!), create lighting that shows the animal’s eyes and coat to best effect, incorporate people in pet portraits, and create a variety of looks to boost your sales.
