The Best Camera Lenses To Capture Great Photographs Of Your Pets!

It is no secret that there has been an absolute explosion in the pet photography niche over the last few years, especially on sites like Instagram. Not only has this new trend enabled pet owners to share their love for their pets as well as the crazy stuff their pets get up to with the world but it is also a potential income stream.

At the time of writing, Instagram accounts like itsdougthepug (3.8 million followers at the time of writing) have managed to turn into a primary income source for the pet owner with them being able to quit their jobs. The majority of accounts like these earn money via paid sponsorships with the larget accounts like itsdougthepug actually being approached by pet brands to launch their own lines.

Since news started to break about these regular people being able to quit their job and essentially earn a living by capturing cute photographs of their pets a few years back, interest in being able to do this has spiked. Although most people tend to get started by taking photographs of their pets with their smartphone, popular accounts quickly advance to actual mirrorless or DSLR cameras with fancy lenses in the battle for the best possible image quality.
