Teaming up with GreaterGood’s The Animal Rescue Site and Petfinder Foundation, famed pet photographer Seth Casteel will visit shelters across the nation to teach anyone with a digital camera how they can snap a picture and save a life.
St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center received a grant from GreaterGood and Petfinder Foundation to host the first One Picture Saves A Life Workshop on April 27, 2013. Anyone can register for a free workshop to learn more about how to take an incredibly cute pet photo. Shelter animals will serve as models and photos taken at the workshop will be put online to help speed up the adoption process. Registration is now open at: http://www.onepicturesaves.com/get-involved/
Casteel also will hold a second workshop that day for shelter workers and volunteers from around the region.
In 2007, Casteel began volunteering to photograph homeless pets to help them find loving families. Shelters where he volunteered found adoption rates went up when the animal was presented in a positive way. Now, with the One Picture Save A Life Workshop, Casteel will be teaching others how to improve the lives of shelter pets through grooming, photography, and presenting them with “best paw forward” to prospective families.
In addition to the workshop, participating shelters attending the sessions at St. Hubert’s will receive a digital camera, PhotoShop software for photo editing, and grooming products provided by sponsor John Paul Pet. In addition, FreeKibble will be donating 100 Halo Pets meals per registrant to the host shelter at the workshop.
Anyone can follow Casteel's workshop and admire the pictures through live streaming via Instagram with the hashtag #onepicturesaves on April 27.
