Informative and very useful

This podcast shares a wealth of useful and practical information for all photographers. I listen to many of the Podcasts several times and take notes.I highly recommend it for all photographers, not just pet photographers.

So Helpful!

Nicole and her guests really break it down so a new pet photographer (or even one that’s been around awhile) isn’t overwhelmed and feels like this really is something you can achieve. Definitely a good listen. :-)
