POD – 160913

In order to share the progress of WOD Dogs, I have decided to create a Facebook Page. The aim of the page is not only to update you on the Photo-Book, but also to showcase the community spirit of the project and give the opportunity for ALL athletes of all sporting disciplines to share their love for CrossFit/Sport/Fitness/Health and their DOGS! I want to make this a world-wide collaboration and pay tribute to all the dogs out there that shape your well being, make your box a happier place to train, never miss a game, are a mascot to your team, bark and cheer you on to get you through a gassy METCON or heavy set, that make your world the best world… That are your world. I want you to share your best, funniest and most creative pics with me and the followers of this project, to give inspiration and happiness through the amazing things you and your dog can do together!

This week has seen me chatting with some BIGTIME athletes (who I am busting to announce very soon), as well as some amazing sponsors and supporters; all contributing their expertise, time and good will to WOD Dogs and ultimately, RSPCA Qld. All will be revealed in the coming week! I thank everyone for their contact, support and assistance to date. It has been quite overwhelming, but I am looking fwd to chewing my way through this, sharing the process and end product, and making a pile of $$$ for the RSPCA Qld.

No, it’s not a spelling mistake; I am now including Movies of the Day (MOD’s)…

This was a little trailer I put together after Hotshots 19 yesterday morning at CrossFit Mitchelton. This ‘Memorial/Hero’ WOD is dedicated to the Firefighters who lost their lives on 30 Jun 13 while fighting a fire in Yarnell, Arizona. The fire was ignited by a lightning strike and overran and killed 19 Firefighters with the Prescott Fire Department’s interagency Granite Mountain Hotshots. It took 10 days for the fire to be contained. Those that died were:

  • Jesse Steed, 36
  • Wade Parker, 22
  • Joe Thurston, 32
  • William Warneke, 25
  • John Percin, 24
  • Clayton Whitted, 28

Dear followers, friends and family.

I am about to embark on a (rather large) photography project. The project is a photo-book (hard copy and electronic versions) consisting of athletes and their dogs… named: ©WOD dogs. The book will feature select athletes and their dog/s in various training settings and poses. It will also consist of a short story about each feature athlete and their dog, outlining why health/fitness, and their dog are so important to them. ALL PROCEEDS from the book will be donated to RSPCA Qld Inc. (Inspectorate) to assist them in continuing their fight against animal cruelty with limited resources and support.

I am calling on everyone’s help to make this a success, and as such, I ask that you all share this with your networks and those you feel would be suitable features. I am also looking for sponsors for the book. Sponsors would have the opportunity to display their business logo on an athletes page and be credited also. Features are open to everyone through application. The application just needs to be a photo of you and your dog/s and a few words on yourself, your sporting/training background/achievements and why your dog, health and fitness are major parts of your life. Applications are to be emailed to me at: trav@thefitographer.me

The successful applicants will be contacted within 2 working days of receipt of their application and individual shoot details can then be arranged.

So, if you are an athlete, passionate about animal welfare and want to be published for the world to see… Here is your chance to do it and aid in the work of the greatest charity to ever exist.

Get sharing/applying… I’ll time you… 3, 2, 1, GO!!!
