Pawsitive Shelter Photography ("PSP") is a volunteer organization operating in the Orlando, Florida area. Our mission is to use photography to present shelter animals to the public as appropriate and deserving pets and companions. By maximizing adoptions and emphasizing the need for shelters to better market available pets, we hope to reduce abuse and neglect of domestic animals and lower rates of euthanasia.
Our long term goal is to create an economical photographic system and workflow that is easily transferable to rescue groups and shelters with scarce resources; one which can be used by persons of all skill levels to present their charges in the best possible light.
We use a combination of photographic best practices, speed and hard work to show the compelling personalities of available animals. We endeavor to provide our work product to the shelter at the earliest possible moment so as to give each animal the longest possible time before the adopting public.
Donations of ideas, manpower, money, equipment and supplies are welcome and all donations will be used solely to save shelter animals.
In August, 2014 we went international. Cynthia Vasquez, one of our original photographic mentors and most passionate and enduring participants, who is now a second year veterinary student in the Caribbean nation of Granada, took the Pawsitive Shelter Photography mission to the Granada SPCA, a no kill shelter on the island, and produced more of her usual high quality imagery of available homeless pets.
Guestbook for PAWSITIVE SHELTER PHOTOGRAPHY -- Saving Good Pets Through Better Photography
http://www.fashionforplay.com Well, I loved the concept you people have adopted in order to help the street dogs and thereby creating an opportunity for them to have a proper shelter. I would love to adopt this method here in my state too.
Great site, great job! I would also be interested in a training seminar!
God bless you guys, what you do is so incredibly beautiful, turning shelter dogs into stunning portraits of adoptable dogs that tug at anybody's heart.
I live in Tallahasse and am very interested in learning how to duplicate the success your group has had. Please let me know if you schedule a training seminar so I can attend -- or, have you thought about doing a webinar? It might be a good fundraiser. Your group produces awesome pictures! I believe you'd have a lot of people who would be interested in classes of some kind.
We just had someone offer to buy us a Photoshop program and I'm thrilled! In the Orlando Sentinel video, it looks like you use a white backdrop made out of something hard. Can you please tell me what that is and how it was made? Would it be possible to observe/help on a Sunday sometime?
Hi! I send You like for everyone with photos our homeless dogs! Regards from Poland!
