We want to thank everyone who has so generously given their time and talent to helping the North Shore Animal League America by buying their 2012 calendar.  The calendar would not have been possible without the help and support of  Beth and Howard Stern.

To commemorate each month of 2012, Beth and Howard Stern have generously donated their time and love in support of creating a one-of-a kind calendar showcasing the precious, healthy canines and felines that can be found in local shelters.  And thanks to the thousands of people who ordered the calendars, now these pets will be able to find warm and happy homes.

With each turn of the calendar page, animal lovers are welcomed by colorful and fun images of Beth and many adoptable and lovable Animal League pets. Each year, the Animal League rescues, nurtures and adopts nearly 20,000 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens into permanent and happy homes.

Adoramapix is so proud to be a sponsor of the 2012 calendar. The support has been amazing and the calendars have been flying off the shelves. So thank you again  for supporting such an amazing charity. Due to the extreme high demand, any orders placed after December 6th, 2011 can not be guaranteed to arrive by Christmas Day. However, please know that your continued support is very important in helping save the lives of thousands of pets and we appreciate every single order. Thank you again for the support.

‘Tis the Season of Giving. What better way to give back as a photographer, than by giving someone your time and talent? Adoramapix is proud to be involved with Help Portrait which is set for tomorrow, Saturday, December 10, 2011. Help-Portrait is a global movement of photographers using their time, gear and expertise to give back to those in need.

Help Portrait was founded by Celebrity Photographer Jeremy Cowart. Tomorrow, photographers from around the world will be grabbing their cameras, finding people in need and taking their picture. When the prints are ready, the photographs get delivered.

Yes — it really is as easy as that.

 

This is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. The portraits are not for portfolios, websites, or for sale.  This holiday season, we all  have the chance to give a family something they may have never had before—a portrait together. It’s as simple and as moving as that – a moment in time captured forever and lasting a lifetime.

Even if you are not available  tomorrow to take portraits, your donations are still needed. If you would like to donate please click Here.

Welcome to Member of the Week!  This week we meet Gordon Brugman of Smoky Moments Photography. 
Gordon has been photographing for over 30 years. I asked him what he loves to photograph the most, he replied, ” Landscapes and wildlife of the Great Smoky Mountains, using HDR photography, Ortonization and Photoshop techniques to share the beauty of my backyard with the world. “
Gordon says he gets his inspiration from the natural beauty of the everchanging Smoky Mountains. I asked him what was in his bag, he said, ” I shoot pretty simple, believing the eye is the most important photographic equipment at my disposal. My go-to camera is a simple Nikon D5000 using either an 18-55 Nikon zoom lens or my Tamron AF 70-300 Tele-Macro zoom lens. A 25 year old Slik Tripod (old school!), polarizers and a Nikon remote shutter trigger pretty much complete the package.”
I asked him if he could go back in time and give his younger self some advice, what would it be? He replied, “Consider every image an opportunity to hone your skills, learn techniques and advance your art, but not until first appreciating the moment in time you are about to capture. “
Thank you Gordon your work is beautiful and so are your words.
