This week HeARTs Speak, the nonprofit I volunteer with that supports artists, animal welfare organizations, and communities using art to help homeless animals, chose to make Michael Bagley Photography their Featured Artist. I’m excited! You can check out the feature on the HeARTs Speak website by clicking here.
Paco and Susie share a hard luck story. And though I don’t know all the details, the short version is sad enough: abuse, neglect, poor socialization, etc. Fortunately they were saved by the caring folks at Stray from the Heart Rescue who placed them in a great foster home. But they need a great forever home.
Two weeks ago Stray from the Heart contacted HeARTsSpeak, the nonprofit organization of which I am a member, seeking a photographer in north Jersey to help make images of Paco and Susie to facilitate their adoption. Part of HeARTsSpeak‘s mission is to be a resource for shelters and rescues to help them find photographers for their animals. After a series of emails and text messages and phone calls, the networking came together and I met Susie and Paco. I didn’t have much time for the shoot, and they didn’t have much interest in modeling, but all things considered we did pretty well together. Here are their shots.
