Ruediger Photography

Louie ruediger


Louis B. Ruediger is an award-winning photojournalist whose singular and evocative images have appeared around the world.

His expertise in documentary photography harmonizes with his love and enthusiasm for dog breeding and shows, which began when he started working at his uncle’s kennel raising and breeding Cardigan Welsh corgis in the early 1980s.

In 2002, Louie became the owner of Ace, a bull terrier. With Louie’s training and handling, Ace earned championships in obedience and rally. Along the way, his mentors in training and others in show circles began asking him to photograph their dogs. He has photographed dogs for Jane Messineo Lindquist (Killion) for her book “When Pigs Fly! Training Success for Impossible Dogs” and her Puppy Culture projects, for Eukanuba on its promotional and advertising campaigns, and for every major dog show in the United States.

Louie’s style combines artistry with an eye for capturing rare and fleeting moments, honed through nearly three decades in photojournalism. Louie began his career in newspapers, and his photos have appeared in publications and with many news services. He currently works for the Valley News Dispatch outside of Pittsburgh, Pa.
