Portrait of Walter


Walter was a photographer for over 20 years and stopped being a professional photographer in 2001. At the time of this portrait, he was taking photography classes at Antelope Valley College because he wanted to bring himself “up to date” in digital photography techniques; Walter’s entire career was devoted to film photography.

Walter was originally from San Fernando Valley, in the Los Angeles, California, USA area. He graduated from Granada High School and came to Antelope Valley in 1999.

Portrait of Peggy


Peggy was a groomer at PetSmart for a year-and-a-half, but was was a professional groomer for over 20 years prior to this portrait. Peggy was originally from San Fernando Valley and went to Cleveland High School. She studied grooming in the Valley from an individual who had been a groomer for over 30 years. She believed that was the best way to learn. Peggy at the time of this posting, lived in Palmdale, California, USA. She had two children and two grandchildren. She only had one dog, a Yorkshire Terrier.

Peggy hoped to get more dogs, and was affiliated  with Halfway Home Dog Rescue, who came to adopted out dogs on the weekends to PetSmart in Palmdale, CA.

What I like about this picture is the shape of Peggy’s body as one arm is up with elbow bent and the other down with elbow bent. I also like the Schnauzer in the back photobombing the pic.
