SHELTER SHOOT: Hempstead Town Animal Shelter, LI

I had a great shoot at Hemsptead Town Animal Shelter! First experience in a municipal shelter. They are doing great work but unfortunately overwhelmed by pit bulls. Some of their resident have been there for over 2 years. The called me after they saw my Flower Power series, wondering if I could do the same thing to help promote their dogs.

Thanks to a very well organized shoot, and a wonderful handler (Nick), we were able to photograph 33 dogs in about 4 hours! My personal record. 24 of them even wore flowers...
