The number of professional pet photographers has grown substantially over the last decade. The Pet Photographers Club connects pet photographers around the world through podcasts, education, and a community of other pet photographers. Cofounders Kirstie and Caitlin, interview experts to help pet photographers grow their businesses with higher sales, creative marketing, and business strategies.

Those are amazing photos! What a great way to celebrate our pets.

Wow these are all beautiful photos. Judges will have hard time deciding who will be the winner.
Wow, these are incredible! I would love to do a photo session with my cats but given that they’re cats I’m just not sure how well they would cooperate.

How fun! These pictures are gorgeous. I love taking photos of my dogs (usually dressed up in adorable costumes), but these are way beyond my skill level. Maybe I’ll give it a shot and enter anyway.
What beautiful pictures! Love them all.

What fantastic photographs and good luck to those that enter these competitions. There is nothing like amazing photos and only wished I was able to take such good ones.

These photos are so amazing. I particularly admire those with high shutter speed; the action ones such as underwater dogs, or dogs catching a tennis ball … those are unbelievable.
