Next month there is a workshop being held in Pennsylvania to learn how to start a pet photography business. The workshop starts on September 14-16 in Hershey (great for all my fellow chocolate lovers!). But seriously, I don’t have any experience with the team holding the event so I can’t make any recommendations but they do seem to cover some very practical topics. Here are some of the subjects they plan to cover in their 3 day course:

  • Learn from our team of professional photographers how to turn people’s urge to pamper their pets into a profitable income-earner that’s not just fun, but lucrative, too.
  • Discover the secrets to photographing animals — how to put them at ease, how to make them look their best — and how to create photo packages pet owners will love.
  • Find out three more ways to turn a profit on every pet photo you take — with virtually no additional work — and triple or quadruple your pet-photo income.
  • Learn how (even with no technical savvy) you can quickly, easily, and affordably set yourself up to look — and sell — like a pro… so you can enjoy the freedom, flexibility, and independence that comes with being your own boss.

The course is quite pricey at $1597 but you can get discounted tickets for $1397 before August 13th (just a few days left).  You can find the full schedule at their website along with hotel details and course testimonials.
