Atlanta Man Calendar

la fin | by +elaine

look, I know no matter how awesome a thing might be, too much of a good thing is…too much. I’ve already told you how incredibly fun these Atlanta Man Calendar shoots were. how great it was to see places in atlanta I never knew existed. how great all the gentleman were to let us drop into their lives for a couple hours, and not only convince them to pose in embarassingly suggestive ways, but also to allow us to document it with photographs. and then print them for mass consumption. I might’ve even mentioned the drinking at morning shoots (which happened more often than you would think). so really, there’s no need for me to extend this out into another blog or two. so we will close out the Atlanta Man Calendar with this last blog post wrap-up. and then I can move on to things like Art is in the Blood, and some fantastic weddings, a product shoot at Good Karma Bakery, and 1-year-old’s birthday party, plus all the other awesome things heading down the pipe.

for the last time, I present for your viewing pleasure, the remaining gentleman of the Atlanta Man Calendar:

Carlton Mackey, Artist, Activist, fellow Trashwater Nicaragua traveller, and all-around good guy

Raymond Carr, Ninja Puppeteer

Cousin Dan, Musician & Performer

Damon Moon, Musician

Grant Henry, Artist, and owner of Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium

Jonathan, Jeff & Joel of Monday Night Brewing

and finally, our cover-gent, Gerry Brown, 2012 London Games Olympic Torch Bearer

but the Atlanta Man Calendar shoot is not really done. because the reason behind it was to raise funds for the trashwater trip to nicaragua. and that’s about to happen. soon. so buy your calendar HERE. and then get ready to hear all about the nicaragua trip once we get back.

tonight is the night.

after months of work, over a dozen metro atlanta locations, a bunch of good-sport man models, and so much laughter it should be illegal…it’s finally here! the big launch. the “Greaser’s Ball” release party. the unveiling of The First Annual Atlanta Man Calendar to benefit Trashwater.org, at Fallen Arrows, and co-sponsored by Native Crave.

there were two categories of models. good sports, and not-a-drop-of-shame-over-the-top. tito and andrew of fallen arrows were definitely in the latter category. I can’t show you most of the images I ended up with, because…well, just because. but here are some:

and also for your visual enjoyment, the man candy that is Chris Appleton of WonderRoot, and the visual artist PLF.

have you ever been part of project that was wonderful and fulfilling, and once you get to the other side of it, you’re happy and satisfied, and proud of yourself and your work and that of everyone who was there to help make it happen (people like the season 9 interns)? yeah, that. it was awkwardness and awesomeness. it was epic. and the calendar ended up being just as incredible as we had hoped it would be all those months ago.

so come to fallen arrows tonight. dress up in your best greaser costume. sample the yumminess of native crave. have fun, and ultimately support some incredible people and a great cause.
