I photograph a lot of stuff that I never get paid for. Most stuff actually. It’s not a business model they would teach at Harvard.
This photograph is just one example of why I do. A few months back, early one foggy morning I was out wandering and stumbled upon Katy and her dad and their two dogs. They graciously gave me about 30 minutes of their time. We photographed, and chatted, and then I moved on. Less than two weeks later their dog Duchess (on the left) suddenly passed away.
