Welcome to sanctuary! I am honored that you have come to my Patreon page! My name is Cameron and I am the traveling sancuary photographer behind the Yoga Animalia Project.

I started the Yoga Animalia Project in December of 2013 after many months of dreaming. I was visiting Ching Farm Rescue & Sanctuary in Herriman, Utah, showing up with three rescued turkey friends who would live out their lives at the sanctuary. I stepped out into the hard-packed snow in my Vibram toe-shoes (my Southern California roots obviously showing), and I fell in love with the residents and that place. I started creating portraits of the residents and the first glimmer of the project was realized: I did not intimately know Costailo, Clementine, and the other residents yet, but I was able to create meaningful images that celebrated their personalities and individuality.

Fast forward to today and I have traveled to 85 sanctuaries all over the United States. I have done this fueled by savings, frugality, sales at festivals, and the overwhelming kindness of many people. There is no true "end" for the Yoga Animalia Project, as it seems I learn of a new sanctuary every other week, and I would like to continue traveling and creating portraits, spreading stories and compassion. I can do this with your patronage.

Becoming a patron gives you access to the community of sanctuary I am building, and it fuels my art and ability to share the voices of sanctuary residents. This work is my life purpose, and I am truly grateful for those who have and will join me in this journey.
May joy find you,
Cameron
