BASEMEANT WRX’S FIRST GALLERY NIGHT WAY BACK WHEN IN 2015 WAS LOCAL NJ PHOTOGRAPHER ERIC DELMAR. ERIC’S PHOTOGRAPHY JUST MAKES YOU FEEL CALM. HIS SUBTLE TECHNICAL ABILITY ALLOWS THE FAMILIAR SUBJECT MATTER TO SHINE.

BEING THE GOOD SOUL THAT HE IS, ERIC DONATES HIS TIME TO PHOTOGRAPHING THE RESCUE PETS AT THE MONTCLAIR ANIMAL SHELTER. HE HAS BEEN INVOLVED WITH HELPING TO SHOWCASE THE DOGS & CATS THAT ARE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS. HIS PHOTOGRAPHY REALLY CAPTURES THE RESCUE PETS’ SPIRIT. AND THE GLAMOUR SHOTS HELP TO CATCH POTENTIAL ADOPTERS’ ATTENTION & INCREASE THEIR CHANCES OF FINDING A FOREVER HOME.

SO OF COURSE, US BEING VERY PROUD OWNERS OF OUR RESCUE DOGS STEW AND LUCY, WE 100% SUPPORT AND LOVE ERIC FOR USING HIS TALENT FOR GOOD.

AND ISN’T THAT THE BEST KIND OF VOLUNTEER WORK? THE KIND THAT ALLOWS YOUR SPECIAL GIFT TO SHINE AND HELP OTHERS AT THE SAME TIME?

SO, IF YOU ARE A PHOTOGRAPHER THAT IS INTERESTED IN HELPING YOUR LOCAL ANIMAL SHELTER, CHECK OUT ERIC’S LATEST POST ON HIS SITE FOR A HOW TO GUIDE.

ERIC MAPS OUT FROM A TO Z WHAT YOU NEED TO GET STARTED & HOW TO CAPTURE AND EDIT GREAT PHOTOS OF DOGS & CATS IN ANIMAL SHELTERS.

IN OUR SOCIAL MEDIA WORLD, BEING ABLE TO SHARE GREAT IMAGES OF THESE ANIMALS IS KEY TO FINDING THEM GOOD HOMES.

BARN UPDATE OCTOBER- ALMOST DONE!

Chris took a video of the Progress of the barn at this point, 10/9. We have windows, electric installed, waiting on Power company to hook up. We have insulation and the contractor is planning to put up the walls this week. So Chris will move some of his machines this weekend so we can get started on our list of pending projects.
