Meet Diane Costello

“I have been photographing people, places and things for over 25 years, and eleven years ago I found my niche—Photographing dogs. After earning my Master of Photography and CPP through Professional Photographers of America in 2016, authoring “Top Dogs – Portraits and Stories” (available through Amazon) in 2017, Photographic Craftsman in 2018, and both the Master of Photography and Service Medallions from PPC in 2019, I continue to grow and learn and teach as much as I can whenever I can!”

What does a Level 2 event mean?

Each of our events lists a recommended level of experience (1-3). By categorizing our events using this method, we hope to better inform you of what you need to know and how to best prepare so that you can get the most out of your attendance.

level 2 event means that the instruction will be focused on intermediate and advanced techniques. Attendees are also expected to have a good working knowledge of their gear and/or software.

  • i.e. Camera Knowledge – White balance, ISO, lens choice, DoF, flash function, and the exposure triangle.
  • i.e. Software Knowledge – Importing images and software navigation


Please Note: Anyone is welcome to attend any class level, however, the pace and content may not be at your current skill level. If this is the case, please expect to attend with the expectation to observe rather than engage. As with all of our educational events, we will always make every effort to accommodate all attendees regardless of their experience level.
