LE Phillips Furry Friends 2015 Fundraiser Pet Calendar

Earlier this year I was commissioned to do thirteen themed pet portraits for the Friends of the L.E. Phillips Memorial Library. The pet portraits would be used in a fundraiser calendar to raise money for the “1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program”. The pet portraits were themed after various events in each month including Wisconsin ArtsWest, Senior Americans Month, Banned Books Week, Teen Read Week, Give a Kid a Book, among others. Each themed pet portrait was taken throughout the library with the coordination of some of their staff. Pets can sometimes be unpredictable, but they all smiled for the calendar. My two personal favorites are; Shadow the Black Lab that dressed up as a lumberjack and Wiley who really pulled off being Max from How the Grinch Stole Christmas!.

I. Love. Photography. I love it. It lightens my heart, fills my soul, and allows me to capture life the way that I see it. I constantly yearn to show life in a way that hasn’t been seen before, to bring images to people in a fresh and innovative way. My favorite focus in photography, my specialty I guess you would say, is Railroad Photography & Art. Something about the rumbling of these great, big, beautiful machines. The way they shake the earth beneath you as they rumble by, how they invade your chest and you can feel the rumble inside you. The plumes of heat on a hot day represented in a heat wave. Snaking through a western valley, void of trees or any other distracting element. Just the train, by itself, in it’s own inexplicable beauty and power. From the time I was a child, they have captured my imagination. I’ve recently gotten into portraiture a bit, and I want to bring some of my experiences with trains to that arena. To capture the power of a person, the sadness, loneliness, omniscience, pride, love, & carefree spirit in a way that hasn’t been done before. I want people to look at themselves in a photograph I have taken, and see a side of themselves that they think no one else has ever seen. Dewitz Photography is all about capturing a moment in a way that has never been seen before, capturing a beauty that some never knew was even there.
