The Secret Sauce to Making Your Pet Photography Shine.

Discover my Secret Sparkle Sauce that allows me to deliver FLAWLESS pet portraits to my clients every single time

Over the past 20 years of photographing pets, I have tried, tested and fine-tuned my editing skills to create my own special secret sauce of editing techniques that I apply to each and every photograph.

I call this “SPARKLE EDITING™”.

These techniques, actions, checklists and cheat sheets allow me to streamline my workflow and craft unique show-stopping images that stand out from the crowd.

AND I want to share it all with you.

Introducing my brand spanking new Masterclass “Sparkle Editing™: The Secret Sauce to Making Your Pet Photography Shine”.

Inside the Masterclass is over 30 videos, 6 Plug & Play Photoshop Actions for instant sparkle and 5 checklists and cheat sheets to streamline your workflow.

Here is just a snippet of what we cover:

  • My editing workflow and how I create great images every time
  • Watch over my shoulder as I edit an image from start to finish
  • How to remove a dog lead
  • How to make a pet’s eyes sparkle
  • Enhancing textures of the fur
  • How to get great looking black dogs and white dogs
  • How to isolate fur with photoshop masks
