So many great resources available to pet photographers!

When I started as a pet photographer, there were TWO books available for me to learn and grow from. NOW there are SO MANY great people teaching and sharing their pet photography experiences!

Here you can find a little of everything! Technical camera skills, business and marketing skills, EBooks, mentoring, and some of the best workshops around. You will find legal downloads, and some of the software I use in my workflows.

LEARNING is the very best way to grow! Be sure to check out these fabulous resources and tell them Holly The Introvert DogTog sent you! AND be sure to come back often as I will be updating this page frequently.
