EVERY MONTH SHOULD BE
There are so very
many animals awaiting adoption in every area of this country -- purebreds
and mutts, boys and girls, puppies and seniors and everything in between
(and don't forget cats, rabbits, small mammals and horses too!). Please
consider ADOPTION as your first and only option.
I am proud to say
that over the last several years I have photographed adoptable animals
reaching into the thousands (spanning across a number of different
rescues). Currently, I shoot primarily for the Charleston
Animal Society as a weekly activity and for their events as requested,
but am always willing to work with other rescues as well. I have been
a Service Professional and Artist Member of HeArts
Speak since 2012. If you volunteer with or officially
represent a rescue organization and wish to discuss having your fosters
or shelter pets photographed, please contact
me. I am happy to support your efforts and there is no
charge associated with this service. (And if you are geographically
out of my area, I will refer you to someone who can assist you in
your region.) Note: Rescue/foster photos may bear either the HeARTs
Speak watermark or your shelter and my studio mark, depending on what
works best for your organization. See watermark samples below.
I also have a relationship with
a pet locator app service where they post photos of adoptables
on their site - additional positive exposure for your shelter and the animals
in your care is NEVER a bad thing!
It should also be
noted that rescue and foster photos receive the same time, effort,
care and attention as client projects do. This is an important part
of my work and I take it quite seriously because I know these furry
lives literally are at stake as they sit in shelters awaiting adoption.
If you are
interested in adopting, please visit
my Facebook page where I routinely post adoptables along with
whatever impression they may have made on me. (It's a much quicker
proposition for me to update Facebook with adoptables and statuses
than this site!)
