060 – Even if you're an experienced pet photographer, commercial animal photography is a whole different beast. This week I'm reviving an info-rich Facebook Live conversation from 2018 with Jamie Piper, the OG of commercial animal work.
If you've been curious about shooting for businesses—and doing it the right way—this is a must-listen. Jamie drops plenty of truth bombs (plus a few well-timed swears) learned over her 17 years as a commercial photographer.

- Who you need on your team to be successful in the commercial world
- The four elements your image licensing agreements need to define
