Local Love for Tomlinson's of Austin, Texas

It’s time to share some local love! I really enjoyed having the chance to create commercial photography for Tomlinson’s, an Austin, Texas based pet food and supply store. This project was so much fun, and I want to share with you a little bit about this company and my experience working with them.

Tomlinson’s has multiple locations in the Austin, Texas area. This is a family run business which was established in 1946. I have been shopping with Tomlinson’s since I moved to Austin over 7 years ago. Part of what I love about this company is that I trust the quality of food and products they offer. In addition, Tomlinson’s gives back to the community in huge ways. This really matters to me! They are constantly raising money for animal welfare groups, donating tons of pet food to those in need, and are currently making efforts to support the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.

This particular project’s assignment was to photographically illustrate Tomlinson’s core values. I had the chance to photograph real customers and employees -- I even got to connect with some dogs via Austin Dog Rescue. These photographs were printed and displayed in large scale throughout multiple store locations, as well as in their headquarters. Fun stuff!

If you live in Austin, Texas and haven’t had the chance to check them out, I highly recommend stopping in. Thank you, Tomlinson’s, for all you do for the animals and the people who love them in the Austin area. Here are the core values that Tomlinson's represents: trust, rescue, growth, expertise, team, quality, delight, health, and display. I'm honored to have photographs that depict such values.
