New Calendar Project – Get Involved!

It’s a while since my last post and I’ll explain how the new site will work and the type of articles and blogs that I’ll be writing next time up, but first, and for reasons of expediency, there’s a new project I’m involved with that can get everyone out there photographing and for a very specific reason, a chance to get your work into print!

In conjunction with Caerphilly County Borough Council I am currently working on an exciting and innovative calendar project.

The successful series of photographic walks that we have carried out over the last couple of years  have matured into this new initiative. Images produced on the walks by those participating will form the basis of a calendar to be produced for 2012. We kick started the project with a talk outlining out aims and how we would both set about both taking and collating the images. The presentation is available below.

We want the calendar to be a little different from those traditionally produced and have commissioned a graphic designer to work closely with us in its layout, design and production.

The more images we produce the more we have to choose from and the more experimental the photographs the greater the chance of creating a ‘new feel’ to the project and a calendar that inspires rather than one that is simply functional in telling us the days weeks and months ahead. Anyone can participate so book on one of the forthcoming walks and get involved!

Kind regards to Tim Padfield for allowing me to reproduce the image above.

  1. Hi Tim
    Been some time since we last had contact with you, I did not think from the last email you wanted to continue with these day trips! What has changed your mind.

  2. Hi Trevor,

    Lovely to hear from you again! What have you been up to this last few months? – About the courses – I’ll not be advertising any specific day trips but if small groups, max 4 want to get in touch then I’m more than happy to talk through bespoke courses and of course I’ll continue with the 1 to 1’s.

    I’ve always loved working with small groups and want to continue with this side of education along with the more formal university side of things.

  3. Hi Tim, nice to see your page up and running again! I missed your posts and your photography a lot! I love idea of creating calendar, let me know when it will be ready so I could buy a copy! :)
    all the best

  4. Hi Tim
    Good to see you back with your new look site – very clean and crisp. Keen to assist with your Calendar project, and as live in the Borough have emailed James to book a space on one of the walks – hoping I haven’t left it too late.
    BTW I got some cracking Red Kite images from Gigrin after – thanks for the earlier tips!
    Good luck with the Project and hope to meet up with you again sometime soon.
    Kind regards

  5. Hi Julian,

    Good to hear from you. Be great having you on board with the project. If you’ve any images from around the area already taken that you think may be relevant then bring them along on disc to the next walk. Look forward to meeting up again.
