(Wink, wink!!)
GoShiggyGo Photography giving back.

I was asked by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health if I was interested in donating my services and do pro-bono work for the
"Healthy Pet Expo 2015" in El Monte, CA.

 The Expo would offer free and low cost vaccines, spay & neutering as well as offer pet adoption.
(My PSA: Adopt don't shop. Thank you!!)

This was the first expo held, so we didn't know what response we would get from the public in terms of crowds.  I set up a black backdrop, in Whittier Narrows Park, yes, a park, (you couldn't tell by the photos that we were in a park!!!) set up my professional ProFoto® strobes Profoto 901054 D1 Studio Kit 1000/1000 Air -Black
and between you and me, I was expecting to photograph just 

15-20 dogs and cats MAX throughout the day.

Holy moly, the response from the public was out of this world.  From 10am to 3pm I photographed not 20, but waaaaay over 100-150 dogs and cats!!!!  A couple of thousand attendees made for a wonderful expo for its inaugural year!!  My friend Tamerin was so kind to get me lunch, but I was swamped with taking pictures that I barely had a second to eat!!!!!

A line even formed with people waiting to have photographs taken of their dogs and even cats!!!! I almost took a photograph of the line with my iPhone, 
which at one point was 20 deep, but
I was too busy taking photographs of doggies.

No joke. I was totally surprised by the turnout!! 
It was amazing, great and exceeded everyone's
 expectations by far!!
Results? Lots of doggies and kitties got adopted!! YAY!!!! 

the reason why you are probably on this blog....
