Studio ATG Gives Back to the NSPCA!

Sun. Dec 18. 2011Studio ATG Gives Back to the NSPCA!

Saturday morning was a big day for us as we were hosting our annual Studio ATG Gives Back event at one of our favorite charities, the NSPCA.  
How does it work? We'll....each year, we select a charity that we feel will benefit from our work as photographers, so we pack up our studio and staff and take everyone to a location and then boom! We let the photo magic begin:)  
In selecting the NSPCA for our project this year, we chose them because of an unusual incident we had last summer where they came to the rescue.  
There has been a crazy amount of stray cats in our neighborhood since the foreclosure crisis began. We had always thought people had moved and just left them behind out of convenience, which made us both very upset...we'd constantly hear them fighting and hissing in our backyard, which was just kind of crazy.  
Then, one hot summer night, when we had our windows open, we were awoken by the sound of kittens in our back yard. We waited til morning, then went outside to check in the brush and boom, there they were; three kittens in our garden. We put on some gloves, got a little box and then spent about 20 minutes trying to capture them.  
We tried to find a shelter to take them...spent about an hour making phone calls....and no one would except the NSPCA. So we packed them up and brought them down. In going to their facility, they informed us that at that time, they were housing something like 740+ animals....most of them victims of the foreclosure crisis. We decided right at that moment, that as so many of the "Dogs of Foreclosure" have been caught up in the shuffle of what's been happening in our town with so much housing turn over and the economic conditions being so challenging for so many people, the NSPCA would be the perfect fit for our Studio ATG Gives Back project for 2011.  
As everyone knows how dear to our hearts our dogs Bob and Jibby, a former stray himself, are to us, we thought we'd like nothing more than to see some of the beautiful adult dogs of the NSPCA become adopted into wonderful, loving homes.  
After being there for a while, we both realized that there's nothing more amazing is than their hard working staff, dedicated volunteers and foster parents. These people spend tons of time working with these animals so they can live happy and healthy lives with a new family. But the love these people put into these animals is just incredible. They are so gentle with each and every one of them, treating them all like little treasures.  
In getting to see and be with these animals, I wanted to take them all home with us....but Jared wouldn't let me... I did my best to love and give treats to every dog we photographed....These animals need a good home, and all deserve to be loved. So, if you feel you can help financially or by providing a home, don't be afraid to give the NSPCA a shout. They are a no-kill shelter, and of course every little bit counts. Please help if you can and thank you again to the NSPCA and all these wonderful animals.

More Snapshots

Fri. Jul 22. 2011More Snapshots

Had a crazy night last night, Trish was getting run down by a beaver and Jared was playing leap frog. Strange, but just another day at the office....

Goal, 2000 snapshots by summers end, printed...

Wed. Jul 13. 2011Goal, 2000 snapshots by summers end, printed...

The Goal is to create 2000 personal snapshots by the end of the summer (calling it 2000 Images of Summer) here's the kicker, I'm going to print every single one of them. We've off to a good start so I thought I'd share a couple fresh ones. Who wants to join us? maybe at the end of summer we can all get together and share our images, but they must be printed.......


Sat. Jul 9. 2011Snapshots

Snapshot: : a casual photograph made typically by an amateur with a small handheld camera. via Webster  
Couple weeks ago we were reminded the strong importance of taking snapshots of our life, family, and friends. As professional photographers we often don't point our cameras at each other and we have been trying really hard to change this, it is our new goal to create snapshots of our life, our relationship, our journeys, and our surroundings. We don't consider any of these images to be professional they are just simple fun snapshots......  
First up Trish and her niece Kasey taking part in a pie eating contest on the 4th of July, they didn't win but both got a ribbon...

The next 2 groupings of pics were shot with our Polaroid 300, a small fun little instant camera that creates tiny little gems.

Just enjoying life....

22" brown trout, yum, yum.... From time to time we'll start to post more stuff like this, we encourage all of you to create images of your friends and families, and remember a picture is nothing if it's not printed and enjoyed.....

Caption This...

Tue. May 24. 2011Caption This...

In light of bring something new to the blog along with our new 4 pics, we present you with "Caption This". Every once in a while (hoping once a week) we will post a random pic, a pic that is need of a caption. The pics we post in this section will be what we call snapshots, guessing they will be out of focus, maybe the subject matter might be a bit tasteless, or maybe they'll just be shot with our phones, who knows.  
We're also hoping that Stesha our studio manager will step up to the plate and help us provide snapshots in this new section on the blog "Caption This".  
This will not be a success without YOU, we need your help, we need you to provide the most interesting caption you can provide of the snapshots we post, the captions can be simple, complex, or whatever your feeling. We'll also be posting these to our Studio facebook page, but we really want the captions placed in the comment section of the blog. Who knows maybe we'll compile them all and make a book, sky's the limit, mostly we're looking to have a bit of fun.....  
First pic in "Caption This" is below. Again we need your help, the viewers, the readers, the stalkers, bring on your captions, I'll kick it off.....
