Photography is another hobby Luke Buchanan enjoys and he has a great eye for it. Because his skills are so advanced, Luke Buchanan has become a volunteer photographer for PetFinder.com and HispanicLink.org. His favorite topic to photograph is pet adoption events in the D.C. area. “My goal is to update their pictures for petfinder so that they can put their best paw foreword in their struggle to get adopted,” says Luke Buchanan. He also syndicates their petfinder pages through his blog in hopes of driving more traffic to their pages.
As a volunteer, he takes photographs for different pet adoption events and political events. On the Hill, Luke Buchanan covers anything pertaining to the Hispanic population in America. “It is very interesting. Recently it has mostly been about the Immigration Reform Bill. I even got the chance to sit in on Department of Homeland Security Senator Janet Napolitano’s five-day testimony on immigration reform,” says Luke Buchanan.
