I want to take a moment to say a special thank you to everyone who preordered my 2018 Calendar - the amount of support and excitement for this year's calendar has been incredible. Round 1 of preorders completely sold out but Round 2 of calendars is In-Stock and shipping now!
This year I decided to "ask the audience" and a bunch of friends, family, and great folks on Facebook responded. The vote was pretty much unanimous that the 2018 calendar should feature a mixture of sunset and night sky images. I've sorted through every sunset and Milky Way photograph in my catalog and I'm excited to share the final product with you all - can't wait!

Just like last year's calendar, the 2018 edition is more than just a collection of images to me - it's blood, sweat, and tears. It's the culmination of years of late nights shooting for hours on end, dragging my kids (sometimes kicking and screaming!) to chase the sunset, late nights editing, and then snoozing early alarms to go work day-job.
The journey to this point was never about making a calendar or selling a canvas. It was about experiencing the vastness of nature, capturing images of that, and learning how to do it in my own way. It was about experimenting with techniques, discovering new wonders, and trying to tell that story with a single static image. And sometimes it was/is just about being outside, in the cool air of the Central Coast with the silence of the stars being interrupted only by the crashing of the waves.
Join me on a photographic journey of the Central Coast of California, featuring sweeping sunset scenes and glimpses of the sea under the night sky.
This 12 month calendar is individually wrapped, UV coated, and features a saddle-stitched binding. I chose the saddle stitching so that multiple calendars would lay flat and stack nicely inside shipping envelopes. My primary goal for the project design was to simply highlight the images. Since I'm not a graphic designer by trade, I kept the page layout simple and the information at the bottom of each image unobtrusive. Each month's image features a bottom caption area featuring my logo, the image title, and my website address in the event you would like to order a print. Below is a sample image of last year's back page.
If you have a moment and feel inclined to share this project, I would be incredibly grateful. Thank you for stopping by!
