For the last five years, I’ve been photographing the Sandton SPCA’s annual fund raising calendar. The theme this year was ‘Best friends’ inspired by the idea of encouraging people to adopt multiple dogs rather than just one (I have five). I photographed the 2016 calendar in my studio and to say it was challenging is an understatement!! Photographing multiple dogs and trying to get them to sit still and look at the camera is not easy. To get an idea of what’s involved with a project like this, you can watch the video documenting the making of the calendar here:
I am very pleased that we have sold out of calendars now which means that funds in excess of R240,000.00 will have been raised for the Sandton SPCA as a result of this project and I’m currently in the process of coming up with the concept for the 2017 calendar!
All the animals featured in the calendar are rescues, so these images should give you an idea of the range of animals available for adoption at your local shelter. If you are looking to add a pet to your family, I would always encourage you to visit a shelter rather than buying one.
