Pictures for a Trigger | Westway Studio


My life’s mission has been to do good and put pleasure again out into the world by means of my pictures. I’ve all the time had this unwavering willpower to do… to realize… to make a distinction… and I knew from a younger age that working with and for animals was my calling.

I imply, who wouldn’t need to spend their complete profession mastering the artwork of getting soiled simply to seize a single second of pet life? (Can’t we agree that animals simply have extra enjoyable?)

As photographers, we’re in a singular place to make pets (and other people, too, I suppose) comfortable and enhance the world by means of our artwork. At this time, I need to spotlight a couple of methods Westway lives out our “pictures for a trigger.”

That is Why We Do What We Do:

To Make Homes Hotter…

“I had seen Terran’s work with my pal’s canine. The photographs have been lovely! When my vet advised me to contemplate my superior little buddy of 16 years as being on hospice, I knew instantly I wished to do a legacy shoot with Terran and Westway Studio.

That is why we do what we do: to make good moments good recollections… and good recollections good reminders… of the enjoyment it’s to like a pet.

Dwelling Out “Undertake Don’t Store”

It’s superb what a very good picture can do and much more superb how deceptive a nasty picture will be. Contemplate, for a second, a senior rescue canine who’s scared and confused in an unfamiliar place. The setting hardly makes for a cheerful topic, proper? Now consider an animal-loving — however maybe photographically-challenged — volunteer with a cellphone in dim gentle and you’ve got the recipe for a not-so-great adoption image. That is the place Westway’s pictures for a trigger is available in!

By way of our pictures, we’re serving to adoptable senior canines discover their perpetually properties. Exhibiting them off in skilled imagery and spreading the phrase on the advantages of adoption.

Giving Again to the Group – Educating Model

I L-O-V-E instructing! Right here’s what I really like most about instructing others the enjoyment of pictures:

Serving to aspiring photographers obtain a-ha moments of their photographic abilities and enterprise methods — critically, watching these lightbulb moments when every little thing simply *clicks* is probably the most rewarding feeling!

Lending assist to others who’re having hassle seeing the forest by means of the timber. Generally an outdoor perspective is all it takes to assist issues come collectively

Sharing information about finest practices for operating a profitable enterprise. I really like serving to others discover ways to make a residing by means of their very own exhausting work and willpower. Dwell to work, not work to reside.

Serving to others put their very own influence on the world by means of the issues which might be essential to them.
