Jun 21, 2008
Making money with pet photography is a small business that easy to start and has low start-up cost. You could start making your beautiful photos of cute pets with a digital camera. You could make easy money by combining your love of photography and pets by becoming a professional pet photographer. You have a camera, know how to use it and can snap a pretty decent photo, and that is about it to get started.

The trick to becoming a top notch pet photographer is to the practice the 3 P's of patience, practice and plenty of pictures. More pictures taken means that you could choose the best shoots and the best angles and surely would give you space to experiment. The more you practice your art and the more pictures you take the better you will become. Patience in this business is truly golden. You will need it especially when working with young children and pets because quite often they both have very short attention spans and often won't hold still for very long. However a squeaky toy or treat can go a long way with capturing a pet's attention long enough for you to squeeze off a few shots.

Setting up joint ventures with pet groomers and pet stores alone can give you all the business you can handle. A good pet groomer can easily book you with 20 to 50 pet photography sessions on a weekend. Determine your prices and show your customers some picture packages they could avail and your all set to earning money with your artistic creations. Post your work samples at their location so customers can see your work. The samples will also get them thinking about how they should do the same with their own pet.

So there you have it. You just need lots of patience and practice setting up and taking pet portraits using a minimum of equipment and props and it won't be long before you become better at your craft and learn the best ways to approach animal groomers and pet stores with an irresistible joint venture proposition. Even without doing a single joint venture with pet stores or groomers you can still earn a great income by offering to shoot your portraits in the comfort and privacy of your client's home. You can even keep your day job and still earn a fantastic second income by shooting one or two portrait sessions per evening.
