Collaboration : February Education Workshop

Collaboration  |  February Education Workshop
Thursday, February 17th at 10:00 am at Studio 557


Join us for our February Education Workshop focused on COLLABORATION! Vend itself was born from the idea of women working together to support and encourage each other as we grow as entrepreneurs, so this topic feels so special to us. Our Education Workshops are all about gathering together as a community to learn about each other and learn from each other. This month’s workshop will feature Joanne Wetzel of Five Freedoms Photography. She has has built her pet photography business around her love for collaborating with shelters and rescues in order to help harder-to-adopt dogs find their forever home. You are going to love the insight she has to share with us!

This event will be in-person at Studio 557. Learn more about how we are keeping our community safe with our policies and procedures in detail below.

This FREE EVENT! Please RSVP below so we can save you a seat.


Meet the Workshop Leader

Joanne Wetzel

Joanne Wetzel is a Dog + Rescue Photographer at her company Five Freedoms Photography. She specializes in soulful dog photography for crazy obsessed pet parents and loves capturing and curating art pieces that you can cherish for years and years to come.

Using those same skills and abilities, Joanne lends her photography services to animal shelters and rescues in need across North Carolina to help more animals, especially harder-to-adopt, be seen, valued, and loved among the millions of animals available for adoption. It is her goal through rescue photography to reduce animal overpopulation, euthanasia, and homelessness in our state.
