๐ŸŽ‰ PARTY ANIMALS (free photoshoots)๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿท. Hello neighbors! โ€‹โ€‹ โ€‹โ€‹I'm a local photographer who's bored out of their mind. I'm one of those types that need to keep the ball moving in terms of creativity/new-work in order to get anything done. Essentially, I need new stuff to continue work on old stuff. โ€‹โ€‹ โ€‹โ€‹Soooo, I'm posting here to see if there's any interest in y'all coming out to shoot free portraits of your pets in the park. (Iโ€™d eventually be down to schedule outdoor shoots individually, eventually, but seeing if I can make this format safe and workable). โ€‹โ€‹ โ€‹โ€‹It will be totally free. I'm testing out some different proofing sites and working on logistics, scheduling, and timing for doing a bunch of individual shoots whilst maintaining safe social distancing, and not forming a large congregation. โ€‹โ€‹ โ€‹โ€‹So the requirements would be: that your pet is: well behaved, on a leash at all times, able to sit/stay, able to wear an article of clothing (party hat, sunglasses, scarf, etc); you be within walking distance; and everyone attending to wear a mask and maintain safe social distance. Oh and you'd need to bring something for your pet to wear, Party vibes, but those cones are ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผtoo. โ€‹โ€‹ โ€‹โ€‹I'd be hitting different neighborhoods for different days and plan to circle back though for Party Animals I wasn't able to schedule/shoot that day. โ€‹โ€‹ โ€‹โ€‹If anyone is interested, just reply in the comments with your nearest park. I'll be starting in Virginia Park. Dates are TBD by times of lower density. โ€‹โ€‹ โ€‹โ€‹Walking distance is highly recommendedโ€”both for traffic reasons and in worst-case scenarios, (dead batteries or some other catastrophic failure) you just took your pet for a walk. I know this type of format highly favors dogs, but I donโ€™t know how to do much else with the current conditions. โ€‹โ€‹ โ€‹โ€‹You can see some of my old work here. โ€‹โ€‹ โ€‹โ€‹https://photos.okpebbs.com/DOGS โ€‹โ€‹ โ€‹โ€‹[New camera since, and post-processing is similar to โ€œpaint in a new placeโ€โ€”it can be changed easily, try to focus on the composition/lighting.] โ€‹โ€‹ โ€‹โ€‹Just post here if interested. Then I can work out safe timing protocols and build an intake/RSVP/scheduling system. So far itโ€™s looking like 5 mins of shooting with 10 minutes of overlap. So ideally everyone would be 10 minutes distance apart. So max 16 slots per day based on flash battery power.
