Where do you take your shelter photos? Do you normally do them onsite? Do you have space setup as a studio or do you just the animals outside and see what happens?

Oh my.. that is terrible that the shelter was closed. But it is pretty amazing people there have started volunteering their homes!

Have you ever seen the Purina ProPlan performance team? They are amazing. All the dogs they use are shelters/rescues. They sponsored an event for our shelter during the Pittsburgh Marathon weekend. I have never seen anything like it. It's all dog agility and really was amazing. I totally over shot it and it'll take take me forever to process all the images I got.. a few good ones and a ton of crap :-) ..ah the life of a dog photographer, right.. lol!

Thanks so much +Melody Henkel .. A friend of mine designed that logo over our evening coffee & Pie meetup.. He's a gifted designer! I just started using that on my facebook page (www.facebook.com/pawsofhopephoto) and have been trying to work it in my regular workflow.

Do you all have helpers to work with?
Just about everything I shoot is on my own, unless there are special dogs that need GQ photos (i.e Fighting dogs, Deaf, strays in bad shape). Those dogs have to be handled by one of our specialized trainers.. other then that.. A big bag of treats, a squeaky ball and me

The community here at first didn't get off the ground so I tried something a little different at Facebook... Www.facebook.com/PawsofHopephoto
It was good in the fact that I can showcase dogs needing adoption and it works. We've heard a number if stories of dogs getting adopted because of what they ended up seeing on my Facebook page.. But I do miss connection from my photo peers.
I learn so much from you guys!

I've been trying out a new setup for my upcoming shelter/rescue dog photos.. I think it's a good start, but still have a ways to go to be more portable an effective.

I have a barley standing background stand.. thank goodness for gaffers tape and some hose clamps from the car part store :-)

The from the home construction store:
 I got 4:  99 cent A-clamps and a 4ft x 8ft bamboo privacy material (about 12 bucks)

The bamboo was see though so I clamped my giant 5in1 reflector on the back, using the black side.. this won't work.. so I'm thinking about just some very lightweight black fabric.

I have mixed feeling about the chair.. some of the dogs were very tentative so I'm thinking it might be too narrow.. but have no idea what to replace it with.. I got the chair from free, my neighbor was getting rid of it.

I also shot these in the full shade.. I have to think how I'm gonna do this in full sun as where I shoot for the Animal shelter it is all open sun with no shade.. I was thinking about a white popup canopy, but those things are actually kinda pricey

This was my first before/after. Austin was a stray brought in off the streets. I didn't think about it till much later, but I want to start using this to help promote the amazing work that the people of the shelter actually do. 
So I have been coordinating with the Adoptions manager to try to make sure I get some of the before shots.
