Samy’s Camera and Black Rapid are pleased to support the G2 Gallery Pet adoption event on Sunday July 24th from 12-3PM . Jo and I will be representing Samy’s Camera and Ron Henry will be shooting dog street portraits for anyone who adopts a pet or comes by with their pet.
Ron travels the world for his company Black Rapid Straps and I noticed that his facebook page was full of great shots of dogs. When Sarah from G2 asked me to sponsor the 3rd annual pet adoption by sending a photographer, I immediately thought of Ron and his street style dog shots. I’d only met Ron briefly in the airport after WPPI earlier this year but I gave it a shot and asked him if he was interested in participating. To my surprise, he agreed and is coming down from Seattle to be our primary photographer for the pet adoption.
Come by the G2 Gallery to see the dogs and cats up for adoption and bring your pets for a street style portrait. We will be posting the photos online for you to download. Here are some more of Ron’s dog shots:
