Professional fashion and portrait photographer Albert Lewis loves dogs—shelter dogs, show dogs, household pets, and the Alaskan Huskies of the 1000-mile Iditarod race that he portrays in his book, “Born to Run/Athletes of the Iditarod”.
Alumafandango attendees, you’ll have the rare opportunity to have Albert capture the personality of your own pet in a professional photo session. (All breeds welcome, even cats too.)
Alumaevents is excited to announce that Albert will be conducting several charity pet photoshoots during Alumafandango week. Your $20 donation includes a 15 minute session with Albert and his camera, and a high resolution digital file of the image you select from his website. (A donation of $30 includes a lovely 8×10 print for framing.)
Proceeds will be donated to the Toby Fund of Wolf Creek Oregon, an organization dedicated to protecting animal life in the Sunny Valley area of Southern Oregon. Look for the sign up sheet at the Alumafandango registration desk.
Passionate about helping animals, Albert uses his work to elevate awareness of pet overpopulation, and volunteers with animal shelters and rescue organizations. He photographs dogs and cats in shelters to boost their chances of being chosen for a new home. (His subjects have a 100% adoption rate.)
“It is my mission to help find homes for as many homeless animals as I possibly can,” he said. “Taking photographs is just a small part of what can be offered. This is my deepest passion. We have a voice, we have the means, we owe it to these homeless animals to do our best to help find them a home.”
“They are self-less, loving and forgiving—qualities I think human beings can admire and only hope to replicate,” he said. “We need to show these creatures that we are grateful for the amazing beings that they are.”
