Last week, I had an opportunity, through the PetValu pet food store in Thorold, to put my hard-earned photography skills to good use - doing a fund-raiser for the Niagara Falls Humane Society. People were invited to bring in their pets, in a costume for Hallowe'en if they wanted to, and I would take their portrait. For a donation to the Humane Society, they received a 5x7 print.
What great fun it was! I had dogs and cats, a rat, and a lizard. I had a set with a black backdrop, pumpkins, colourful leaves and corn stalks, arranged in a corner of the store, and a table ready for the smaller pets. All the pets were very well behaved, and I was delighted with the results.
I delivered the photos on Friday evening (a day ahead of schedule) and many people have picked up already. I have a few shots here to show you, of the ones who have signed their model releases, and I hope to have a few more in the next week. I'm already looking forward to the Christmas shoot!
