From April 26-28, 2013 we’ll open up the studio for anyone who would like to have a custom photo session to create unique art with their pets while helping the animals at MaxFund. Your donation of $75, $150 or $200 earns you a session.. 100% of all donations go directly to MaxFund. In 2012 Mark Stevens Photography raised just short of $10,000 for MaxFund, please help us break the $10,000 barrier this year!
Just added – more slots on April 26. Call now before they’re all gone.
Call 303-562-5536 to reserve your spot.
Frequently asked questions
What do I get? – it depends on the level of your donation:
$75 – a lite session (20-30 minutes, ideal for one well behaved dog. These sessions have limited availability.)
$150 – standard session (60 minutes, ideal for one not so well behaved dog, two dogs or one puppy or your dog(s) and children)
$200 – standard session and a mounted and matted gift size print (8×10 or equivalent)
All sessions include a reception for you to come in and enjoy a glass of wine (or soda) while you choose your favorite photographs from the experience. Unless listed, sessions do not include prints or digital files from the session.
What if I want to give more than $200? – If you decide to give more we’ll reward you more. During your session ask about prints, art cards and canvases that we can create for you to help benefit Maxfund.
Can my kids/family be in the pictures? – Yes, please! we would love to have your family in the photos. Please note that it is, however, often easier for the pets to pay attention without their kids present if the kids aren’t going to be in the photos.
I have more than two dogs, can I bring them all? - Please tell us about your dogs so we can determine if we can get everything you need within the standard session. We may allot more time and ask you to increase your donation accordingly.
Who can come, only dogs? – Any well socialized dog is welcome and we’re happy to have your cats or lizard as well. Please note that cats are not always thrilled by the process and their tolerance will determine the extent of your session. We’re unable to have farm animals (including pigs, even if they’re house pigs), however if you’d like to arrange a special session where we travel to you we’ll be happy to discuss it.
Can I help? – Yes, please tell your friends about the event or get your boss to make a donation. We are determined to raise $10,000 this year and we need 60 people to meet that goal.
What if I want something more than what’s listed above with the donation levels? – You may purchase additional products as you desire, there is no requirement for you to do so. A portion of any additional purchase will be donated to MaxFund. We have options for all budgets.
Are there any special rules? – Yes, because the available sessions are very limited you will be required to reserve your spot with a credit card. If you fail to show for your session or cancel your session with less than two weeks notice your card will be charged for your pledge. For everyone’s safety we have a few studio rules that must be followed and also require you to be liable for the behavior of your pets at all times. We do our best to make everyone comfortable and relaxed, but any pet exhibiting aggressive behavior will be asked to leave immediately with no refund of any session fees paid.
