Calendar Girls: Shoot # 13 – January

Wine, Women and Song

Introduction, a blog by Flash Gordon Photography

The Final Shoot: We gathered at Jo’s house, the fire was warm, the wine was ready and the piano was waiting for today’s model.

I can’t believe it’s all over. It’s been a lot of work, but such a lot of fun too, with some very brave ladies. I hope we manage to raise some funds for the Stage Door’s chosen charity with our calendar sales.

The calendar is on sale now around Kerikeri. It’s a great way to support both our community and a very worthwhile cause. A donation from the proceeds of the sale of the calendar will go to NZ Child Cancer Foundation, and this is also a great way of celebrating the ladies in our community.   Each month is sponsored by a local business and we thank them for their support. Most, but not all, of our models also appear in the Play. The sponsor for this month is Kainui Vineyard

Calendar Girls: Shoot # 11 – June

Spinning a yarn …

Denise – Miss JUNE

Introduction, a blog by Flash Gordon Photography

Shoot # 11. Sunday – how I would have loved a lie-in today. But no! It’s up and off to the first shoot of the day, set up at 9.30am. I know to many people a 7.30am alarm is already mid morning but not me, and probably not on a Sunday! Julian and I had breakfast together and I set off with a full belly, and arrived just a little before Les. We are, of course, extremely grateful to our sponsors and venue owners who also get out of bed on a Sunday morning just to accommodate us!.   

By the way, the calendar is on sale now around Kerikeri. It’s a great way to support both our community and a very worthwhile cause. A donation from the proceeds of the sale of the calendar will go to NZ Child Cancer Foundation, and this is also a great way of celebrating the ladies in our community.   Each month is sponsored by a local business and we thank them for their support. Most, but not all, of our models also appear in the Play. The sponsor for this month is All You Needle

Calendar Girls: Shoot # 9 – March

Such a pretty flower …

Introduction, a blog by Flash Gordon Photography

Shoot # 9 – Wow! Two-thirds of the way through, just 3 more shoots to go. It’s co-incidental that we have had January, February and March all one after the other – don’t for a moment think we have been THAT organised! After this we will be jumping to August. And just to confuse matters, we’re probably switching January and July!

This is the shoot of the Calendar for the Play ‘Calendar Girls’, being put on by Stage Door Theatre Company this August. A donation from the proceeds of the sale of the calendar will go to NZ Child Cancer Foundation, and this is also a great way of celebrating the ladies in our community. Each month is sponsored by a local business and we thank them for their support.   Most, but not all, of our models also appear in the Play. The sponsor for this month is Puttsgreen Florist.

With each ‘month’ that we photograph I’ll be producing a blog. The months will be in the order of either the availability of the shoot location or the model. Today’s shoot is in the competition for two passes – so take note!
