Hobo Hotel is a no-kill shelter for cats. It is one of my favorite organizations in Lake Charles. They do such get work saving the lives of abandoned cats. It was a pleasure to shoot a few photos for them in 2012. I just wish I had more time and money to help.

My photo calender has been filled with a bunch of head shot shoots lately.
Social media makes a good head shot extremely important to any business professional. A quick Google search surfaced many articles on the value of a good portrait.
This article in Dynamic Business discusses the reasons you should outsource to a professional photographer.
Adding to my head shot portfolio this week - Jody Miller is a real estate agent in the Atlanta In Town market.
Cathe Hall Payne is one of my most talented theater friends. She sings. She Acts. She directs. I spent a little time with her and the cast at On Stage Atlanta as they prepared for their Christmas production of Nuncrackers and put together a video for social media. Also, shot portraits of the cast for the theater. http://www.flickr.com/photos/fotokew/sets/72157631922538812/
