Photography workshop helps shelter pets find homes
Thursday, September 17, 2015 by Nora Ankrum
The nonprofit Shelter Art Foundation is hosting a free workshop later this month on taking studio-quality portraits of shelter pets. The idea, according to an announcement about the event, is to make sure that pets featured on adoption websites aren’t overlooked because of poor picture quality. “With an increasing number of potential adopters searching online for pets, high-quality pictures are more critical than ever to help animals get out of shelters and into homes,” said Deputy Chief Animal Services Officer Kristen Auerbach in an announcement about the event. The workshop will be hosted by the Shelter Art Foundation’s professional photographers, who travel around the country to teach photography skills and donate studio equipment to help showcase shelter animals. The event will take place Sept. 28, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at the Austin Animal Center, 7201 Levander Loop.
