Thank you for viewing our shelter photography. In October, 2011, we started taking pet portraits - using whatever resources were at hand - at the Orange County, Florida, Animal Services Pet Rescue and Adoption Center, located at 2769 Conroy Road, Orlando, FL 32839-2162.

Available pets from Orange County can be viewed at http://www.ocnetpets.com and at the Facebook page maintained by the shelter, found at http:/​/​www.​facebook.​com/​orangecountyanimalservices.

In May, 2013 we began working with Osceola County Animal Services, located at 3910 Old Canoe Creek Road, St. Cloud, FL 34769. As they expand their public outreach to place more of their animals in good homes, their adoptable pets can be viewed here: http:/​/​www.​osceolacountypets.com. Please help them by publicizing the excellent work their staff is doing to put the focus on live animal release. Our relationship with Osceola County Animal Services ended as of October 31, 2019. We were pleased to have been of service to them and to have helped re-home many animals over the six-and-a-half years of our mutual relationship. We donated our working materials to the shelter when we departed.

Our volunteer photographers are of many skill levels, from professionals to enthusiasts to point-and-shooters, but all participants have a common desire and passion to pawsitively present shelter animals to the public as viable and desirable pets. As our collective experience grows our methods (hopefully) will attain a consistently higher quality and rate of success. 

We have posted a few short tutorials about various aspects of how we do what we do. One is a short, comprehensive video on how to process photos to achieve best results for the pets we photograph, with a main emphasis on Photoshop. It is found here.  Two others explore both Lightroom and Photoshop and explain topics such as cropping, exposure, catchlight, and leash removal in one video, and in another video, how to resize and export from Lightroom.  A fourth discusses another method of cleaning a white backdrop using adjustment layers in Photoshop.  We hope that this information is of use to all of our volunteer photographers and anyone who wishes to emulate our work elsewhere.

If you have specialized photographic or retouching skills, or are an experienced animal handler and wish to work with us, please contact us using the contact links on this website or via the Facebook or Twitter links provided.

We hope you will share our pawsitive vision and our inspiration. Pass the word, adopt a pet, make a friend, save a life.

Please note that we are not offering goods or services for sale through this website, which is used primarily for storage of photos of animals we photograph, and a location where the shelter(s) we service can access and download the photos we take for them.


About
Contact Info

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.  You are welcome to use our photos as long as the use is not commercial in nature, you include an attribution to Pawsitive Shelter Photography and include a link back to this website. Also, you must keep at least the same quality as the original photos.  We invite bona fide rescues to use our photos to assist in placing the animals we photograph. 

Over the years we have been the subject of many articles and stories. A lot of these have passed out of circulation, which we take as a testament to the longevity to our organization. A few items about us remain online, including:

In July, 2015 Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs honored the collective dedicated and hard working members of Pawsitive Shelter Photography with Orange County's 2015 "Distinguished Citizen of the Year Award."

In February, 2016 Orlando Weekly ran a story about our good works.  We were humbled  and touched by their story.
