People are their truest selves when they are with their self-care. No matter how experienced or nervous someone is about being photographed, interviewed or even frequent, as soon as they are in their care, everything changes. The “In Good Company” the coffee table book of fine art representations, features notable people from a wide range of fields (arts, science, literature, performance, music, etc.), with their concerns. A portion of the proceeds go to the Apex Conservation Project, a Los Angeles-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization created to preserve the wolf species through education, rescue and advocacy. Unlike traditional portraits, these unique portraits depict the relationship between people and their loved ones. They describe everyday moments between them that are intimate and mundane, often humorous, playful or touching, and always genuine. Each one gives me the details of their relationship with their pet, so that I can see a concept that is special to them.
