Volunteer Shout Out
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Barks!
Great photos are crucial to getting animals into good homes. Whether posting adoptables to Petfinder, Adopt-a-Pet or the FFL website, jazzing up their cage card or advertising an animal in a local newspaper, having excellent photography is invaluable. Often times, a photo is the first thing the public sees about Friends For Life.
Luckily for us, we have Roy Krisanto on our volunteer team. Although busy with a full-time job as a software engineer and owner of his own company—Roy Image Photography, he still manages to capture Friends For Life’s key moments through countless volunteer hours.
Roy donates his photography skills free of charge to take “glamour shots” for each dog in our program. With just the right setting and angle, Roy finds the perfect way to portray our deserving animals to potential adopters.
In addition, Roy attends every major Friends For Life fundraising event to obtain social photos for the press. These photos have appeared in such reputable outlets as Culturemap, Papercity Magazine, 002 Houston Magazine, and Houstonia. With high standards for photography, these news outlets give Friends For Life a platform to introduce our organization and mission to thousands of readers across Houston.

We give a huge thank you and the November Shout Out to Roy for all he does for Friends For Life.
