As I write this article there are five calendars hanging on the walls of my office. They provide year around photographic inspiration. Each year I choose a few calendars for my office, mixing up the locations and photographers from one year to the next. I also choose an extensive selection of beautiful landscape, nature, and astronomy calendars for my photography store (which is powered by Amazon.com) so photographers like you (and anyone else who loves beautiful images) can choose one or more calendars that will inspire you throughout the year.
The excellent “Wild and Scenic” series by BrownTrout are beautifully produced. There is a calendar in the series for almost every U.S. States and Canadian Province.
For those of you who like to point your eyes, cameras, binoculars and/or telescopes at the night skies, there are several astronomy calendars.
So order up some inspiration for yourself. Have fun in the calendar section at my photography store. Scenic, nature, and wildflower calendars (mostly featuring photos in the U.S.) start on page 1 and continue on page 2. Astronomy calendars start on on page 2 and continue on page 3. Individual U.S. State calendars in alphabetical order start on page 3 and continue on through page 8. Canada and Canadian Provinces are on page 9.
Are you curious what calendars are hanging on my walls right now? Classic black and white images by Ansel Adams. Landscapes by Tim Fitzharris. Scenes from the Rocky Mountains by various photographers. Scenes from Yosemite by several photographers. And finally a calendar from Bali which my daughter bought for me while she was there on a trip.
This is one in a series of articles that will guide you to the best of all things photographic. The rest are here: Buyer’s Guide: Recommendations For The Best Photography Equipment, Software, Books, Magazines, DVDs, Online Photo Labs and More.
