Pet Photographers have unique challenges and opportunities... Where are you at?

  • Are you interested in getting better at adding people into your pet photography?
  • Are you consistently take high-quality images of pets without too much worry about settings?
  • Do you need a bit of improvement in low-light situations (especially indoors)?
  • Are you interested in adding commercial pet photography to your business model?
  • Would you like to add passive income to your business by selling your images as stock? 
  • Are you trying to get more consistent with your marketing?
  • Could you benefit from having a more regular stream of new inquiries and bookings?
  • Would like to have a PLAN so you know exactly what needs to be done, when?
  • Would you like more systems in your business give you a bit more freedom?
  • Is this possibly the year your hire or grow your team?

If you answered YES to one or more of these questions - you probably better keep reading...


The reality is... at the moment no one else is teaching courses on commercial and stock pet photography! 

Why? Because in commercial work we are all direct competition! It's not a hyper-local business like pet photography for pet parents, so no matter where we're located (certainly within our own countries) we're all competitors.

If you know me at all, you know I think this is bullsh*t. The INDUSTRY is WAY better off when those of us who have learned how to navigate the weird and wild world of commercial, licensing, and stock SHARE knowledge with those who are just starting out. 

We are better together ❤

The Animalhaus Masters series are workshops for photographers who want to shoot and sell commercial and stock pet photography. At these events you will learn the basics and pro tips to successfully shooting and selling commercial and stock photography. As well as contributions from the event organizers, each workshop will also feature a guest Master on their own turf, who will be sharing their special skills, secrets and shortcuts.  

April 2018 Workshop attendees who are interested in joining the Animalhaus Media stock pet photography website will be granted 'Master' level access - which will include higher commission rates on their images and other perks that help them sell more and earn more with stock and commercial photography.

Was This Right for Me?

"I was not sure that I would have the same level of readiness as everyone else. Was this right for me? It was. I loved it all. I realized that I am not alone in my challenges and I am leaving feeling energized and motivated plus I now have some really awesome images."

- One of Nic's 2017 Workshop Attendees

1 + 2 + 3 = Intensive Growth  

This intensive year will be an intimate experience. We keep the groups small (around 18 or less) so you know you'll always be in a safe space to learn and grow. We ask all applicants to fill out a short application so we can meet these goals for you and for the group as a whole. We will review your application and be in touch with next steps.

What is all of this actually worth?  

  • The value of accommodation, transport, meals for each reterat + extras is over $6,000

We wanted to make this event as affordable as possible so that we could help as many of you who need this as we can, while still delivering the level of quality, access to experts and learning opportunities that is necessary to get the results you'll need to succeed as a commercial photographer...
