Throughout my life, I have worked with many different photographers whether I was getting married and paying a photographer, or was fighting in a war and being 'shot' by a photojournalist. However, the most recent installment was with a local photographer from King of Prussia named David Balick. I came to know him through our shared interest in giving dogs a second chance. His foster Boone, is a tough case. Boone is a great boy, but seems to take his owners for a walk instead of the other way around. He is a stubborn puller who is not bad, he just has a new found love for exploring the world and getting all the 'sniffs' in. I showed up to meet my first client as a professional ready to go to try and offer some of my expertise to help Boone and David. After 30 minutes of reinforcing good leash walking behaviors with Boone we started to see a glimmer of hope in Boone. I passed the leash off to his foster dad and we finally saw a new dog who was walking in tandem nicely and enjoyably. Finally, we had a plan for Boone and the light was at the end of the tunnel. A new day has dawned for Boone and his owner David Balick and hopefully, just maybe, Boone can soon find his forever home as he learns to walk on a leash!
So, if you are looking to support a man who is honest and true who is trying to do some good deeds in the world then look no further. David Balick is a photographer who loves his work and has a passion for helping those in need. I for one, will be using his services again in the future.
