Everybody loves to take pictures of cats

Cats are very nice subject for picture. When you see a small kitten, with a head coming under the blanket, it's not possible not to like it. If you search for a cat picture, Dreamstime will give you 7880 pages (!).As a subject, they are not so demanding as long as you are ready to catch them in the right moment. There are most probably "one billion" training movies on Youtube on how to make settings on camera for fast moving subjects, indoors and outdoors.... continue reading

Dog Rescue Photography: Max

With his home-cropped ears, tough guy look, and being heartworm positive, “Max” was going to be a hard one to get out of the shelter. No ordinary quick kennel shot was going to work, so I took Max outdoors for a glamour photo session on September 27, 2018.He was surrendered to the Walton County Animal Control shelter by his owner who cited that number one excuse for dumping their pet: “moving.” So Max’s only hope of living a longer life was to be adopted or rescued.... continue reading

Dog Rescue Photography: Skinny Stormy

Skinny, in heat, flaky skin, fly bites and ticks on her ears, never been to a veterinarian before… poor “Stormy”. While I hate to see dogs surrendered to the shelter, some dogs will have a much better life away from their current owners and into new homes!“Stormy” was surrendered to the Walton County Animal Control shelter in Monroe, Georgia, USA on August 15, 2018. She didn’t appear to have had the best care, but was a true submissive sweetheart! She was just a medium-sized dog... continue reading

Humane Society Photography: Rocky

Rocky the Rottweiler was surrendered by his owner to the local animal control shelter. Sadly, his owner said that he no longer had any place for him. (I understand the situations of life, but I also long for the day when it is understood that pet ownership is a life-long thing.)After six days in the shelter he still hadn’t gotten any attention from rescues or adopters. So it was time for some “glamour photos”! Rocky was kind of in rough shape. He was a bit underweight and was... continue reading

Pet Adoption Photography: India

It is so sad the prejudices that people have. Not only can we unjustly despise other nationalities and races, but these inner biases can also play out against certain dog breeds. There are some dogs that are a bit harder to get adopted simply because of their breed. That is where the dog rescue photography comes in!“India” was a 5 month old puppy that was picked up by an Animal Control Officer on July 16, 2018. She was cute…! She was playful…! She was just a puppy…! So what would it... continue reading

Pet Adoption Photography: Jack

“Jack” was a 4-month-old Beagle and Terrier mixed puppy that was surrendered to the animal shelter by his owner on June 28, 2018. They had surrendered two of his littermates earlier in the summer, but thought they’d keep him. Well, when it “just wasn’t working out”, the shelter had to find a home for “Jack” too. No problem. A super-cute pup like “Jack” just might find a better life elsewhere anyway!Besides being irresistibly cute, he was one-hundred-percent “I wanna play with... continue reading

Pet Adoption Photography: Reggie the Black Lab

“Reggie” and I had to get out early this morning! I love the beautiful warm days, but summertime poses a challenge to the animal shelter photography. Summer means longer daylight hours. This computes out to higher animal intake and fewer shady hours to photograph them.Springtime triggers most animals to come in season and begin breeding. That means a bunch more animals to photograph than we experience in the winter. We call it "kitten and puppy season". This, coupled with the longer... continue reading

Dog Rescue Photography: Grady

It is that time of year and love is in the air! A gaggle of boy dogs were hanging around the household of an “in-season” female pup. (Hey folks, get your dogs spayed and neutered and this won’t happen!). When the animal control officer showed up, “Grady” was the only one to stick around and unfortunately ended up in doggy jail for stalking! Grady probably wasn’t too well socialized outside of his owner’s home, but was a tender boy at heart. After getting him out of his kennel,... continue reading

Pet Adoption Photography: Bocephus the Coonhound

“Bocephus” was a handsome hound dog picked up stray by a Walton County Animal Control officer on May 8, 2018. He had a hunter orange collar and dragging a 5 foot black leash, so he had to have belonged to somebody. Not sure if he was a lost hunting dog, or got away from somebody’s house. As is my luck when I really like a dog, he tested heartworm positive. But thankfully Anne, Lane and Audrey had already posted pledges for his rescue before his hold even expired. And not long after posting his... continue reading

Pet Rescue Photography: Bigsby

Bigsby the Boxer DogIt is strange how it seems that dog breed impounds run in spurts. “Bigsby” is the fifth Boxer to come through the Walton County Animal Control shelter in Monroe, Georgia in the last few weeks! “Bigsby” was picked up stray by an animal control officer on May 14, 2018. The officer had no trouble “taking him in” when he ran right up to the truck looking to go for a ride! In the shelter, he was a bit of a barky and excited boy, but it must have all been to get outside.... continue reading
