Gonna talk about my alter ego now. Y'all know I have been working with my local shelter taking dog pictures. In fact, look at this precious boy I took a picture of yesterday....
I could have stuffed this guy in my shirt and snuck him out! So 4 Paws Project has been doing very well. My shelter rocks and they are so supportive of me.
But get this...4 Paws has gone international!! I was contacted by a photographer in Calgary AB if she could be a 4 Paws photographer for her local shelters and rescues! How awesome is that?! After I quit doing the happy dance, I told her "of course!" So now I have a 4 Paws Project Calgary. You can find it on Facebook, along with my 4 Paws Project. She is just getting started and I wish her all the luck. Now we are looking for other photographers in other cities/towns willing to volunteer at their local shelters. I never even thought about making a 4 Paws network until now. Maybe we'll have 4 Paws Projects all over!
AND...I have teamed up with Painted Paws Pet Portraits. This awesome lady is digitally turning my photos into works of art. She has my permission to sell them and a part of the proceeds goes directly to my shelter! We are discussing tee shirts too!
How cool do these look....
You can find Painted Paws Pet Portraits on Facebook too! We are trying to get a canvas company to either donate or give us a discounted rate for printing. We want to hang some in the shelter's lobby. It's a work in progress. But I'm very excited.
AND...I ordered 4 Paw Project silicone bracelets. Will be selling them for $2 to anyone interested. All proceeds will go to the shelter. They should be in next week or so. I'll post a link on the side bar once I get it set up.
My only purpose was to help the animals at the shelter by taking better pictures, I never thought it would go this far.
