It’s another Friday and that means another professional pet photography Project 52 blog circle post. It’s Week 32 and our theme is “service.” At first, I couldn’t figure out how to relate this topic to a photography challenge as our themes are supposed to challenge us creatively and help us grow as photographers. Yes, as pet photographers, we provide a service to our clients but I didn’t necessarily see how to relate that to a photograph. On Tuesday, I photographed eight rescue kittens for Save Our Shelter Dogs Rescue, a small local rescue that I help out from time-to-time. That’s when it hit me as to how I could relate the topic of “service” to a photo or, in this case, many photos. As a pet photographer, I like to give back by providing my services (there’s that word) to area rescues by photographing pets in need of adoption. I provide the rescue with a service that might not be available to them, professional photography, and I provide a service to the rescue animals by helping them get seen to find a home.
Generally, when I photograph rescue pets, I give a few digital images to the rescue so they can post them on their website, social media, and adoption sites. In this case, these kittens were so darn cute and I had such a fun time photographing I couldn’t narrow down the number of images to just a few. However, for the purpose of this blog post, I’ve chosen a couple of my favorites of each kitten. So here are Gizmo, Finn, Otis, Nala, Theo, Milo, Nero, and Inky Rafiki:
For more information on the kittens or to adopt, contact Save Our Shelter Dogs Rescue.
