The links below feature websites and organizations we recommend visiting:


Everyone Loves Elwood – This website covers the adventures of Elwood and his “Mom” Karen. Elwood and Karen have helped countless pets find new homes and they have helped raise a lot of money for a range of charitable organizations. Karen and Elwood also wrote the Foreword to my new book. Pet Photography 101. You can download the Foreword, Table of Contents and more here.

Pets with Disabilities – This is a great organization dedicated to rescuing pets who have become disabled in some way. They have a wonderful story about how the organization was founded, and they do incredible work. I met them at a Super Pet Expo years ago and included a photo of their booth in my new book, Pet Photography 101.


The Doggie Chronicles -A fantastic podcast about dog-related products and services. Listen to my appearance on the show (I cover pet photography tips).

SELECTED PHOTO WEBSITES (Tips, News and Podcasts)

• – This website has a lot of useful information from professionals in the fields they cover. This excellent article is a safety guide that covers common household hazards for pets, food safety for pets, pet-proofing, and other helpful resources for pet owners.

The Portland Metro Photographic News – Though focused on the Portland Metro area, much of the information on the site covers general photo information. The website has a Portland, Oregon area photo events calendar, plus many great news stories about photo shows, camera club news, and much more. One standout page on the site is a photo essay from Photolucida (a biannual photo event held in Portland) by Tom Hubbard, founder and publisher of PMPN.

Thomas Hubbard runs other sites as well that are definitely worth a look. Some, like Hubbard’s Camera, have a lot of solid, basic info
about photography. An overview of them can be found here.
