Don’t think it’s possible to see a reindeer in LA? Wrong: you can—go to the LA Zoo! Starting today and on view through January 2, there will be *reindeers* at the zoo. There will also be little holiday fairs on Saturdays and Sundays, starting November 30 and ending December 22.
Are you in the need for a Northeastern LA pet service? That is green powered? And ran by artists? Look no further: LA Dogz is for you. The fairly affordable dog walk, cat care, in-home, and house sitting service is something you need to check out. We’ll have to have them take care of our pups, too.
A few weeks ago, artist and teacher Ophelia Chong invited us to speak at her Art Center class on self-marketing and promotion for photographers. It’s a late college course intended for seniors and upperclassmen to learn about putting themselves out there and getting work. We spoke about our experience working with artists and how we put ourselves out there, for better or worse. There was also a critique element where we helped give feedback on an assignment they had for interpreting local denim makers (Who we love!) Sinclair‘s work in their own style. There were some incredible offerings but one I quite literally had to take off the wall since it was a photo of a dog poking its face out of a pant leg. The photos were by young photographer Joy Hsieh whose main focus is on dog and pet photography—and she has quite a creative spin on this artistic subgenre.
Okay, pet people: want your animals to have a holiday photo? Yes, you do. November 14 is the kick-off of pet Santa photos at the Beverly Center and you’ll be able to indulge in this through the holidays. We are loving this—and so should you!
Did you know that there are a lot of dogs at Amoeba? We didn’t! What a crazy surprise. Check out this blog post on their site that lets you meet the many Amoeba dogs.
