Daily Foto: Co-founder’s Birthday Today

Phodographer is Austin Lane in Huilloq, Peru, Nov. 2008

In late 2008, Austin co-founded Dog Meets World with his mother Carolyn Lane. He took the project to Peru while on a hiking-biking adventure trip and took time to wander off the beaten path to this village to practice the new concept of Take & Give Photography. He’s shown here printing pictures on-the-spot and for many it was their very first photographs. His engaging and rewarding experience as a photo diplomat while traveling confirmed the vision and value of DMW. Austin has been instrumental in the success of DMW and we all wish him a very Happy Birthday!


  • happiest birthday, austin!

  • Hope you have a wonderful day, Austin. Happy Birthday!

Best Foto of the Week!
