I have long admired the nature images found in the Sierra Club's calendars. They publish a large, monthly wall calendar and a spiral bound, notebook sized weekly engagement calendar. I decided quite a few years ago to make it a goal to become one of their photographers and I am ecstatic to say that goal is being realized very soon. I found out last summer that they had chosen one of my images to be included in the 2012 Engagement Calendar, but since it was subject to final proofing, I waited to make the announcement until it cleared all the necessary hurdles and became official.
The calendar will be on sale in July. Having sold over 8 million copies, it is easy to see why they are the most popular nature calendar published. That is a big audience!
I have always loved photographing nature. Here is one of my first landscape photos, taken when I was about 12 years old.
And here is a landscape photo I took a few years ago. Combining the skills of landscape photography with architectural work is a definite plus to creating exterior images of architecture.
The Sierra Club photo? You'll have to pick up the calendar in July. I'm pretty excited to see it myself.
I am a photographer who lives in Minnesota. I blog about Minnesota, photography, music, food and miscellaneous topics.
