The PAWsitive Action Alliance is so fortunate to welcome Valerie Bruder Photography to our list of members! Her talent is matched by her passion for animals. Read her personal account below:
I have always had a love of photography. As a teenager, I saved up my money and bought my first camera, a Minolta X-GA. I took that camera everywhere! My photography career started when I received a digital SLR as a gift in 2004. I began shooting landscape images in local parks while walking my dogs, Blondie and Holly. After a few years and a few print sales, I started participating in local art festivals in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York. Eventually I tried my hand at portrait photography and today, I am full-service photographer based in Burlington County, NJ.
I love animals and a large part of my photography passion is devoted to the world of animal/pet photography. In my spare time, I photograph homeless animals for several local rescues/shelters in order to increase their chances of being adopted. In 2012, I was accepted as a member of HeARTs Speak, a global network of animal photographers, artists, authors, graphic designers, and advocates who believe in the power of collaboration and dedicate their time and talent to improving and saving the lives of animals.
Wisconsin Voters for Companion Animals is a grass roots, not-for-profit, bi-partisan, companion animal advocacy group that is self funded. Check out the issues they are targeting to move forward in Wisconsin and share with those in Wisconsin you know to support them and get involved.
Members of the PAWsitive Action Alliance are included for their pawsome efforts. Approaches to rescue and advocacy may sometimes vary, so members included are not necessarily endorsing other members. They all, however, share the spirit of advocating for animals, working to improve their lives and the bond of humans with them, and share PAA’s effort to educate and empower the public to create change.
PAA believes that synergy and broader education/advocacy can be attained through our collaborative efforts.
