The photography industry is competitive. The photographers, whether wedding, pet, portrait or senior, who thrive are those who find and create original products and services.

Holding a pet Halloween costume photo contest is one way in which a photographer can set herself apart from the existing stiff competition. This article offers some photography business tips on how on how a professional photographer can hold a pet photography event.

The pet store will get the prestige of having a quality professional photographer in the store with an event which will drive pet loving traffic into the store and the photographer will have greater access to pet loving customers and a location to shoot the event.


  1. Prepare a place on your blog for the event.


Before posting to your blog, think carefully about the information you will need before you post. You will want to think carefully about the packages and prices you will be offering and the sample images you want to use.

You may think your clients are not thinking about Halloween in September; but remember, you are taking the images in September, it may take (depending on your resources) a week to edit all of the images. After the images have been edited, it may take an additional week for your clients to select their images and make their purchase or prints or cards which they can display send out on Halloween.
