Unleashed | Fine Art Pet Photography, a fine art photography company dedicated to education on professional pet photography, has added a third full day to its upcoming workshop. The Unleashed | Fine Art Pet Photography Workshop will be held at Landsdowne Resort in Leesburg, Virginia, beginning September 19, 2010. The workshop is designed to provide professional photographers information on key sales and sales presentation techniques.
“Fine art pet photography has been such a rapidly growing niche market for professional photographers across the country, we felt we wanted to add another day focused completely on sales and presentation training,” said Teresa Berg, Partner and Co-Instructor of Unleashed. “The response to our previous workshops in Chicago and Dallas has been incredible - but the one thing that was consistently requested in follow up surveys was more training in sales. By expanding to a full third day, we feel we will be able to cover all aspects of the sales presentation more thoroughly.”
Pet Ownership and pet services reach record levels
According to the statistics from the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association (APPMA) National Pet Owners Survey (NPOS) show pet ownership is currently at its highest level, with 63 percent of all U.S. households owning a pet which equates to more than 69 million households. That's up from 64 million in 2002 and 51 million in 1988 when APPMA's tracking began. Along with more household pets there is naturally an increase in pet services, pet gifts, and pet photography.
Dog and Cat portraiture has moved out of the pet stores and into the boutique photography studios across the country as sophisticated buyers demand better quality and more variety. Unleashed Fine Art Pet Photography Workshops is training professional photographers in the art and business techniques needed to serve this growing market.
The workshops were created in 2009 by photographers Barbara Breitsameter of Chicago, Illinois, Teresa Berg of Dallas, Texas and Bev Hollis of Leesburg, Virginia, to educate professional photographers in the art and business of pet photography. The workshop offers a thorough introduction to marketing, sales, style and technique necessary for success in today's crowded photography market.
