Happy new year folks!
We saw a great response again last year to my new RFDS Kimberley and Gibb River Road photography calendars for 2018. The larger format and extra images seems to have made them very popular with locals and visitors alike.
Amazing to think this all started with a small batch of 10 calendars printed for friends and family back in 2013. To now have them selling through 35 outlets across the Kimberley, to have the photos on people’s walls around the world, and to be able to raise money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service in the process is all pretty staggering.
Two words. THANK YOU!
We ended up selling more than 2800 calendars this year and officially raised $13,855 for RFDS Western Australia. With a number of outlets also donating their calendar profits directly to the RFDS the real total raised was more than $18,000 in 2017. This brings our overall fundraising total for 2016-2017 to more than $30,000 thanks to everyone’s generosity and support.
I’m also pretty stoked that after last’s year’s 6 week Kimberley camping trip I’ve got more than 60 new photos that I will be featuring in next year’s calendars, available for the start of the 2018 tourist season.
I hope your own photo adventures are treating you well. Stay creative. And stay curious.
Til next time,
