Meet pet photographer Jason McCoy. His work is proof that it’s not the gear - it’s the photographer. His shots are beautiful. You’ll discover: how he started with an entry level camera and kit lens + $250 lighting set up; how he reached out to rescue shelters and started shooting for them just three months after picking up a camera; how he prepares for a shoot; his lighting set up and lens choice. the techniques and tricks he uses to calm, pose, and direct dogs. a fantastic tip using google maps to scout and store locations and much more.
