Animal Planet: Confessions Animal Hoarders

This job takes me to some pretty interesting places and I find myself in some of the oddest circumstances. One such story is when I was called to photograph poster images for The Animal Planet for a show they were filming. The story was about a lady who spent her inheritance of sum $200,000 on rescuing stray dogs which sounds noble and nice but you see she didn’t find them homes. They lived with her. Now in jeopardy of loosing her home, completely out of money, and not working. Something needed to change.

I was on location for nearly 8 hours and much like my other experience shooting for The Animal Planet I had a total of 10 minutes with her to shoot AFTER they had tried to do an intervention. PERFECT conditions for making portraiture, but we pulled through and got the shot.
