These photos were taken on November 2, 2019, at the Valley Oak SPCA in Visalia, CA. This place has a special place in my heart because it is where I have gotten every dog I have ever had; my first dog, Scruffy, who I had for 15 years, and my current dogs, Scout and Ranger.
In total, I photographed close to 40 dogs that day who were all hoping to someday soon find their forever homes. I hope that these pictures bring you joy and maybe even inspire you to check out your local animal shelter.
SLO Climate March
These photos were taken at the Climate March in downtown SLO on September 27, 2019. I took a photojournalist approach to this and tried to focus on capturing the atmospheric emotion.
All images were taken on black and white 35 mm film with my Minolta Maxxum 50 which I later developed in the Cal Poly photo lab
