Melissa McDaniel Photography
Writer and photographer Melissa McDaniel travels the country photographing dogs for the photo book projects. An avid supporter of animal rescue, Melissa donates time and money to rescues, volunteering to photograph their dogs and donating 30% of the proceeds from her photo books to rescues around the country. After adopting her deaf border collie mix, Sadie, and learning that thousands of deaf dogs are put dog each year simply because they are deaf, Melissa became involved in deaf dog advocacy and rescue. Clover, the bull terrier in her Paws for Charity entry, appears in her photo book Deaf Dogs. Melissa currently lives in Philadelphia with her dogs Sadie and Bella (a Brittany) and her two cats, Fuji and Bjork.
Melissa's photo "Clover, Deaf Bull Terrier" is featured on page 60 of the 2010 Paws For Charity Art Book. You can purchase this image on blank greeting cards in the Paws For Charity Etsy shop. We also featured an outstanding "Paws" photo by Melissa on the back cover of this year's book.
Melissa is involved in her own exciting book projects. .. "Rescued In America" and "Deaf Dogs". She has been travelling around the US photographing rescued and deaf dogs, with proceeds being donated to shelters and charities. Read about her project here.
