    The Art and Business of Pet Photography
    with Jen Hargrove, M.Photog.Cr., CPP

    Animals are a huge part of most peoples lives – from the dog of a little girl to the adults who only have 'furry kids’ – and usually are the biggest personality in the family.  Yet capturing those personalities is often more difficult than just a click of the shutter. 

    Jen Hargrove’s photographs are often defined by her simple compositions and authentic moments.  Join Jen as she demonstrates how she combines the personalities of her furry clients and image competition into her marketing, why she prefers to photograph animals 'off leash,’ and what products she suggests for the biggest sales.

    Jen entered the photography industry in September 2012 and opened her studio in Big Piney, Wyoming in 2014. Jen specializes in pet (mostly dog), high school seniors, and children photography.

    Jen has been a member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA) since January 2015 and is also a member of multiple PPA affiliates including Intermountain PPA, Colorado PPA, PhotoPro Network (Kentucky), Texas PPA, and Washington PPA. Jen serves on the Board of Directors of the Intermountain PPA as well as the Colorado PPA.

    Jen strongly believes in the importance of continuing education and the role print competition has along with education in growing and evolving as a photographer, as well as a business owner. She also believes that all photographers have a responsibility to help educate other photographers as well as clients.

    As a follow-up to this discussion, join Jen for a hands-on, full-day workshop on Thursday, October 3, and get the opportunity to watch and photograph a dog session from beginning to end. Space is limited, so register online today. Cost is $99 for the workshop.

    As a follow-up to the monthly meeting, join Jen in this hands-on workshop where you will get the opportunity to watch and photograph a dog session from beginning to end. Jen will begin with the initial consultation, that all-important “meet and greet” with your canine clients. Discover how she makes both humans and dogs comfortable while they get familiar with you and your studio. Also covered is camera and lens selections, lighting, background and props as you learn what to use and when. Explore how Jen photographs dogs for their humans and for print competition. Before the day is over, she will also discuss in person sales, products, pricing, marketing, and the post processing of images. Be sure to bring your camera, lenses, and a laptop with Photoshop installed.

    In 2015 Jen made decisions that would have a ripple effect through her business, art and personal life. She joined the Professional Photographers of America, competed in her first IPC, opened a storefront studio and began photographing pets. This journey has led to her obtaining her CPP, Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees, as well as numerous awards. More importantly, it has provided her the opportunity to speak and teach around the country, allowing her to share with her peers and make wonderful connections along the way.
