Photographer Focuses His Camera on Homeless Pets

Photographer Focuses His Camera on Homeless Pets

Kenneth Clark, a professional photographer in Forsyth, recently found a way to expand his portfolio: taking photos of homeless pets at Monroe County Animal Control.

A far cry from the often heartbreaking pictures of hopeless dogs imprisoned behind in dreary steel kennels, Clark's photos show the dogs at their best.

"I had seen on the news that another photographer in some other state had taken pictures of shelter dogs and it helped," Clark said. "So I decided to do my part here in Monroe County."

Clark, who owns KC Professional Photography, said he plans to return to the shelter whenever new dogs come in so he can take their photos.
