Dog Adoption Photography: Geronimo
A pet photographer’s tools? Let me see… camera, lens, tripod, memory card… Yes, all that is needed. But don’t forget the essentials: harmonica, squeaky toy and treats! My photo bag is stuffed with all kinds of toys that make high pitched squeaks and sounds to get a dog’s attention! And it usually works.
Geronimo was turned in stray to the animal control shelter on April 10, 2019. After six days, no owner had come to claim him and no adopter had expressed interest. So it was time for some outdoor glamour photos!
Geronimo was a calm boy that didn’t have too much facial expression in the first photos. But pulling out my trusty dog squeaky toy, I got some decent head tilts out of him. The expressions must have worked because Geronimo was rescued the next day by Atlanta Lab Rescue! His rescue was sponsored by generous donations to the rescue from Polly, Lorraine and Anne.
