Meet our guests


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!”

Thomas Aaron

Thomas and his wife Linda own one of the largest dog training companies in Denver, Colorado. Their company, FetchMasters, trains about a thousand pet dogs per year and specializes in both high-performance obedience training and solving many severe behavior problems.

Thomas also blogs occasionally for Victoria Stillwell of Animal Planet’s “It’s Me or the Dog” series, and his photography primarily is aimed at social media marketing for FetchMasters, although he enjoys dabbling in portraiture, wildlife, and landscape photography.

What does a Level 1 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 1 event means that the instruction provided will be focused on beginners and intermediates, so no previous knowledge or experience of the topic is expected.


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.
