Join us for our inaugural Animal Care and Photography classes.
In the animal care portion our founder Brad King will discuss proper care of factory-compromised animals. We will cover appropriate feed, cleaning, health risks, common health problems, genetic design, health monitoring, general maintenance and crisis management. Animals raised in industry have very special needs and cannot be treated like animals of the same species who have not been genetically altered, we will explain why and what to do about it. This course will be hands-on and dirty!
In the photography portion you will learn how to get amazing photographs of the sanctuary animals. Talented professional photographer and VP Carol Slater will show you how to capture animals in a way that expresses their personalities and interests. Carol will teach you about light and focus, and will even cover methods of photographing animals in accessible areas of the food industry in order to achieve photographs full of compassion and meaning. It doesn’t matter whether you have an expensive professional camera or an iphone, Carol will show you how its done.
This course is a must for anybody wanting to help farm animals in a hands-on way. Whether you want to set up your home for the care of farm animals, be able to take photographs that truly reveal farm animal personalities, or even if you just want to be completely knowledgable about farm animal personalities and issues, you will leave this course with serious skills which will make you a better advocate.\
