This week’s show is all about pet photography. We will be discussing everything you ever wanted to know from getting your first shoots, walking through some recommended equipment, approaches to the shoot, how to deal with unruly animals, initial marketing ideas and sharing some cool stories along the way.
Firstly, joining me this week is Lesley Wood from Lesley Wood Photography in Cheshire, UK. Lesley was honoured to have been awarded the “UK Pet Photographer of the Year” in January 2009 by the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers) and is also a member of the SINWP (Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers). Also a degree qualified biologist, Lesley has a love and understanding of animals and their behaviour.
Then we have the fantastic Gary Wilson from Bow Wow Photography in Essex, UK. Gary has a fantastic, modern take on pet photography which has proved hugely successful in a relatively short time.
