I have brought this up in the past and it came upon dead ears. :(

I'd like to do a 2017 Calendar. Was going to be EBOM, but that program fizzled. There are great looking Mustangs on here and would make for a great calendar.

Here's my proposal.
  • I'll do the work, submission and editing.
  • Cafe Press will do the printing and the mailing. There are multiple formats available, usually it's the 11 x 8 landscape 12 month flip calendar.
  • You'll do the ordering and paying.
  • Up to 13 entries and each gets their own month (or the cover)
  • Over 13, we'll have to do some sharing or something.
  • Pick a month, that'll be your "theme." I could be your birthday month or something favorite or a favorite holiday. Submit to the thread, and I'll make a list here.
  • Go out and take your photo(s)
  • Submit them to me, and I'll put them together and submit the calendar.
  • It'll be on the Cafe Press site and available for you to order.
Thoughts?

  • Looking to submit by the middle of October, so that all of November and December are available for ordering, shipping etc in time for Christmas and the new year.
  • Another good thing about Cafe Press, you can start your calendar whenever you want, so if you don't order until Feb, it can run Feb through Jan 2018.
  • If you have a current (High Res) photo, you can use that if you like it - it doesn't have to be new or never seen.
  • Note - everyone is welcome to submit/request/be involved. The more the merrier!
  • Pictures will need to be high resolution -- at least 3000 pixels wide. We want the clarity to be up there for a quality calendar.
  • The "Complete" photos are in an album on my photobucket site:

Normally I would jump on October for tree colors but, with the drought we are having in upstate New York, I am not to confident in getting great colors this year. Though I could do a graveyard shoot...hmmmm....pencil me in for October.

When is the submit date? I would like to wait until October or good tree color (which every comes first or at all) to do it.

Thanks! Yeah, if I get enough interest I can pin this or make it news to get more visibility.

Pencilled in for October. October can be Halloween themed or even no real theme.

I can do you a custom individual calendar if you'd like. We can discuss off-line.

Original post updated.

Few months need volunteers to fill 'em!

If you have picked, no time like the present to go out and start plotting and executing your shot(s)

I've got a CMC Mustang cruise going to a state park this coming saturday. I'll be trying to get some sweet photos on that day for something more updated. I love my "stock" photo that you see in my avatar, but that just kinda boring considering the headway I've made since then.

A good theme for September would be football. Anyone have a favorite NFL/college football team out there? Use props or find a field you could photograph your car on with goalposts and such (ask permission, please!). Maybe have a local youth football team pose with your Stang.

Or how about cheerleaders? Now there's an idea for ya! :D

E-mail. I'll PM it out to people who volunteer. Thanks! Got you on the list for February.

Only thing to remember that these will be on display in workplaces, homes with children, etc. Please remember to keep the photos "family friendly" or "work safe."
