Photographer Anthony Helton works with people and their pets in the Greater Sacramento and San Francisco Bay area. These photos of Pembroke Franklin demonstrate Anthony’s marvelous eye and talent for capturing the special essence of the individual animal and the bond between people and pets.
Anthony donates his photography services to the local SPCA and has worked with a local Veterinary Technology program at Cosumnes River College to photograph their dogs and cats for an upcoming adoption event. He also took photos of the CRCVT dogs for a fundraising calendar (see photos here), generating a lot of interest in the animals and making the event the program’s highest grossing fundraiser. “People were ready to adopt the animals in November even though the adoption event isn’t until late April” writes Andy. “It’s incredible the difference something as small as a photograph can make in a homeless animal’s life, and I’m very happy to be able to contribute in any way I can to help animals find loving homes.”

Carly Bowden is a self taught artist living in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley with Piper the Corgi and Lacey the Beagle. She is currently learning how to train dogs at a local canine resort and training facility.
“I received scholarships in high school to further my artistic skills, but turned down offers from schools and instead started working here” writes Carly. “My art hasn’t taken a back seat to my chosen career, however; working with these wonderful creatures hands on helps me capture their true spirit. I have an undying love for dogs. Lately I’ve been working on pieces to donate to a local animal rescue organization, a few of which I plan to enter in art shows; I hope to have an exhibit of my own work in the area. My goal is to capture my subject’s heart and soul in every drawing. Everyone who has commissioned a custom portrait from me has been happy to have a forever piece featuring their best four legged, wet nosed, tail wagging friend.”

Claire Holloway is budding young Oklahoma artist whose favorite subject is (of course) dogs — especially Corgis! She blogs about her lovely little Corgi Maura, who happens to be Daily Corgi alum!
Her love of the dogs is touchingly alive in her work. Although she mainly draws canines, I do believe I’ll be commissioning a custom portrait of my Kitten Girl soon!
See more of Claire’s work and commission your own special portrait at her blog.
thanks for sharing this with us! I love meeting Corgi artists!
Wow, those are all really great, but that photographer is really amazing.
