GRCA Commerce Quarterly Fall 2020 - 23

GreaterReading.org

I've always wanted to start a pet photography business. I am
the annoying person who has to stop and pet every dog that is
remotely close to me. I try to befriend every stray and even feral
cat I see in Reading. It doesn't stop at dogs and cats, I've rubbed
noses with llamas, gotten into a stall to cuddle a day-old calf and
allowed a cockatoo to sit on my head. My newsroom colleagues
remember when I laid down in sheep poop to photograph two
lambs snuggling in a field.
While still working as a photojournalist, I assembled what
I thought were the necessary pieces to the start-your-own pet
photography business puzzle. I had a business name, business
cards and a not-yet-published website. I saw the need for more
affordable pet photography in this area, and I thought I would
just be able to roll it out and customers would line up to pay me
to photograph their beloved pets.
Sadly, I waited until 2020 to put the plan in motion, and
that plan came to a grinding halt. Photography is a luxury
expense and who is going to spend their money on a luxury
during a pandemic? Very few people at best; not to mention
the state was on lockdown for most of the spring, which is the
perfect pet-photo-business launching season. So, I did what
any sane photographer would do: photographed my own pets
every chance I could. My dog has her own Instagram account,
madmadmadeleinethechi. Go ahead, follow her.
