Giving back

On photographing Staffordshire Bull Terrier rescue dogs.

For over 6 years I have photographed Staffordshire Bull Terrier rescue dogs for Stafford Rescue Vic.Inc. It’s exhilarating to know a photograph you have taken helps these unfortunate dogs find a new and forever home .

There will always be the ones that really pull on the heart strings in particular the ones that have had a really bad start to life or get dumped as seniors.The majority have been dumped through no fault of their own and while there are often genuine cases for surrender there are many that are not; this saddens me greatly.

Pounds,wretched places that they are, are in no way conducive for good photos.Staff are unequipped,most likely time poor therefore making it impossible to get a good clear shot which is paramount to show the dog to it’s best advantage.

My wish is for more photographers to give their time .There are endless opportunities with so many dogs and cats in need of a good home,so get out there and help these unfortunates get a second chance at life.May I add it’s also very good practice for anyone who photographs pets !
