Paper Antler: The Fifty Nifty Project!

Attention Photographers // This post is for YOU! I absolutely LOVE making new friends in the photography industry and, more importantly, coming across new work that is AWESOME! My new friends, Michelle and Jonny are the incredible artists behind Paper Antler! They are currently based here in Minneapolis, but have a super cool project in the works!

Michelle and Jonny are all about giving back! They have a philosophy that no matter how much or little you make, you are still able to donate and give back to others! They support an organization called She Dances, which is a non-profit that focuses on finding help for victims of human trafficking. The organization just built a safe-house for women in Honduras and Paper Antler is trying to raise $50,000 to help sustain the safe-home!

Here's the scoop:

For the 2012 season, Michelle and Jonny will be going on a giant road trip! Their goal is to photograph 50 weddings in 50 states over the year, $1000 from each wedding being donated towards their cause.

How can you help? As photographers, we all know that there are many dates that we get multiple inquiries for!  If you are already booked for a date, and think Paper Antler might be a good fit, feel free to send along your inquiries to them to help them reach their goal! Simple as that!


Personally, I think this is a super cool call-to-action that Michelle and Jonny are doing and we have an amazingly supportive industry! How cool would it be to see them accomplish this?!?! The best part about what we do is the fact that we get to inspire the world on a daily basis with our images. This project is super inspiring to me, so I thought I would share! SPREAD THE WORD!!!
