We’re making things better, so we need to press pause.
Enrolment re-opens in June
The Premium Membership is temporarily closed for new sign-ups. We’re still 100% up and running for the hundreds of MTog’s already inside, but as we change some bits and pieces over the next month, we’re closing the doors just for a short time to ensure we give our existing members the best service possible. It won’t be for long and we’ll be back very, very soon! Pop a note in your diary if you’d like for June 2023, or you can ask us to email you instead:
Simply pop your details in the box below to be the first to know when we open the doors once more…

Frequently Asked Questions
Your Title Goes Here
Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.
How long do I get access for?
Membership access rolls monthly in nearly all cases, so the second you join the community, your access begins. Everything you need will be on the Members Home Page, linked in the main menu above. You get access from this point onwards unless you decide to leave us, in which case your access will stop immediately.
It’s kind of that simple – you have access for as long as you want it!
How is the educational content delivered?
Yep, you guessed it, video. Monthly premium webinars are all recorded and uploaded to the Members’ Home Page. Additional educational content is also available here, as well as your monthly critique if you choose to enter.
You will need to be logged in with an active membership to access the Members Home Page though, so please triple-check that you are before you head over there!
Can I access past content?
Yes. Monthly webinars are available for at least 12 months in most cases but if the content is something particularly timeless, vital or otherwise, the content will remain indefinitely. We roll the content with the months to ensure the membership is fair for every single member, old or new!
If you’re really stuck on something, just let us know and we’ll probably have a recording of that to hand that we can share with you 🙂
A magazine? What!?
Well, sometimes things are better if they’re in print. In the magazine, we’ll be preparing info-packed educational resources, interviews, news and behind-the-scenes bits into one volume every 3 months. The printed magazine will be posted to you, wherever you live in the world, and you don’t need to pay a penny extra for it.
As with all of our posted bits, please recycle the packaging and the item when you are confident you no longer need it.
Magazines are shipped out on standard economy shipping, please visit the book FAQs for more information on estimated shipping times.
What is a certification?
The certifications are benchmarks for standards within the community and they follow the tried and tested industry-wide process that every photography organisation has in place. They consist of a panel of images and a supporting photographers profile submitted at one of three levels, BTog, STog and GTog. Successful certification submissions are published on the Find a Photographer page for the general public to view, however, you can opt to have yours hidden if you prefer.
Do I get direct access to Jess though?
Yep. The monthly Q&A is the unrestricted time to jump in and ask questions. You can also submit questions in advance with supporting files if needed.
What are the in-depth critique things?
You may know of the monthly challenge over on YouTube which contain a short, brief critique of some of the entries. This is kind of like that, only more in-depth, focussed and directed to you as an individual in your stage of your own journey.
For example, you can opt to enter an image and receive feedback on it at one of the three certification levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. If you request Gold, for example, your image will be critiqued very firmly and strictly in line with both technical and competition points, in your own style of work.
In this way, members get the best critique possible for their work at the level they are working at or towards, and nothing else.
Deep Critiques are only available for Premium+ Members.
Can I switch from Premium+ to Premium (or visa versa)
Yes, if there are spaces in Premium+ you can upgrade from the Your Account page. If you want to downgrade from Premium+, provided your 3-month minimum membership is complete then you can also do this from the Your Account page too!

I can’t say how beneficial this membership is if you are wanting to improve your photography and editing skills. The content is plentiful and amazing. Jess is a wonderful instructor and mentor. I’m so glad I jumped on the opportunity to be a part of this community as soon as was it opened last year. I couldn’t ask for a better way to improve all of my skills as a photographer. Since joining I have started my own portrait photography business and I can’t wait to see what the future holds with Jess’s continuing support. Highly recommend!

This membership community is worth every penny and more. Being ran by photographer and marketing guru means you are learning from someone who is doing it everyday and can evidence that. Not only are you learning how to shoot and edit, but also getting advice on much more.
The quality of the information provided is exemplary. Everything is beautiful; from the colours, to images to the writing style. Topics are so easy to find and it’s not annoying or clunky to navigate. It’s really professional and so clean.
In the social media group, Jess is very present,, not passing it over to a team and gives really informative advice. It’s extremely welcoming and supportive; a must for anyone wanting to improve their hobby but also a must for anyone wanting to make their hobby and income source.
It’s undoubtedly been the best investment I have made in my photography.
Thank you team tog spot! ????

During the first lockdown I “met” Jess and was amazed about the quality and quantity of knowledge she shares.
The moment I had the opportunity to become an MTOG member signed for the membership and feel that I am receiving even more than expected.
Undoubtedly the best resource for those who are dedicated or love dog photography.

The membership is just amazing! such a great community with very kind and helpfull people, where you can ask for CC without being burned to the ground.. that is for me just so important. next to that, all the info is sooo good and helpfull. i personaly as a premium+ member love the deep critique’s the most. I always learn alot from them. Jess is really good in explaining and teaching. Even for people who don’t have english as there 1 language, it is not to difficult to follow the tutorials and lessons.
