Seattle, WA, July 10, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Famed pet photographer Seth Casteel and "Cat Daddy" Jackson Galaxy will visit Los Angeles County’s Baldwin Park Animal Care Center on July 13 to teach anyone with a digital camera how to make a cat or dog waiting for adoption into an online picture star as part of GreaterGood's One Picture Saves A Life tour.
Teaming up with The Animal Rescue Site, GreaterGood.org, John Paul Pet, and Petfinder Foundation, Casteel has been criss-crossing the country this spring to teach rescue groups how to enhance their adoption programs through simple photo techniques that anyone can learn.
At the Baldwin Park event on July 13, Casteel will be joined by Galaxy, cat behaviorist and supporter of One Picture Saves a Life. The star of The Animal Planet’s “My Cat From Hell” and author of bestselling Cat Daddy, Galaxy will discuss cat behavior in relationship to photography and volunteering at the shelter.
Earlier this year, Baldwin Park Animal Care Center received a grant from GreaterGood.org and Petfinder Foundation to host the One Picture Saves A Life Workshop on July 13, 2013. Anyone can register for a free half-day workshop to learn more about how to take an incredibly cute pet photo. Shelter pets from Baldwin Park Animal Care Center 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: www.onepicturesaves.com/register/.
Space is limited and early registration is recommended for the free July 13 workshop. Previous workshops in New Jersey and Nevada quickly hit capacity when registration opened.
Casteel also will hold a second workshop that day for shelter workers and volunteers from around the region. Representatives from Open-Ended Response, Doggie Protective Services, Feline, Countryside Rescue, Lifeline For Pets, West Los Angeles Animal Shelter, Carson Animal Care Center, Los Angeles County Castaic Animal Care Center, Agoura Shelter, Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, and Pet Project Foundation will take part in a special one-on-one training for shelter staff with Casteel on July 13.
The animal shelters and rescue groups participating in these One Picture Saves A Life workshops receive a digital camera, PhotoShop software for photo editing, and grooming products provided by sponsor John Paul Pet.
