WD Girls Calendar… Please guys, read!
« on: April 07, 2009, 11:18:25 am »
The momentum is increasing!  We are starting to seriously move on this project…  We are thrilled to have Chantal on-board as our photographer, she has come to the table with some outstanding ideas and her style is perfect for the project.  (And she is a WD) The fact that she is a lady will certainly allow us and the other girls to explore undiscovered territory with regards to exposing ourselves for the type of pics we are looking for…   Another Lady, Stavvie, is going to be arranging for all us girls to look incredible. 

The search for outstanding locations is progressing, we are however short a few really exceptional places… so please guys, if you have access to, are aware of, or possibly know of a place that represents Africa in it’s rawest form, please let us know.  We are still looking for something like an old broken petrol pump in the middle of nowhere, a baobab not too far from here, an old windmill, accessible cliff faces, etc…  without and entire village to observe proceedings of course.  Photography starts this Saturday and Sunday, so we should have some really exceptional material to start working with from next week already!  Wow!

Also, we really need some help with a few different bikes… Suzuki’s, KTM’s, Yammies… we have too many BMW’s in the girls stables…  Pistol has offered his KTM625, which is perfect for a particular shot we have in mind… any of you wanting your bike in this calendar, please step forward soonest, shooting starts in 4 days… and we need REAL DS bikes… with character! 

We also have our graphic designer on-board, Carlos will be part of the team and assist us in turning this into something really exceptional. 

Just to really get the grin factor going, we were fortunate enough to meet Mat from 2Wheels and Clinton from the SA Biking Academy last night and they have offered to sponsor us advertising in the magazine and a number of other things!  So the ball is rolling! 

Misty is currently putting a proposal together for advertising in the calendar, if you are interested in getting involved, please contact her for more information, this shall be available by this afternoon.  All wishing to contribute in anyway to the final product, please also contact Misty.   All those graciously donating time, resources, etc will be given credit in the final product. 

I shall update this thread as and when needed, and thanks too all the guys that have already assisted us… this is a big project and we do thank you all for your support and assistance.

We don't have the funds to transport the team across country yet... and due to the time constraints we need to get the shooting completed by the end of next month... if this project is successful, and we are anticipating it will be very successful, then we can use the Cape as a location for the following year and get the cape guys totally involved...  :thumleft:

The fact that she is a lady will certainly allow us and the other girls to explore undiscovered territory with regards to exposing ourselves for the type of pics we are looking for…

My KTM can be used, but it is black/grey and not very photo-freindly. I also have access to a boat club on the Vaal River, if a venue is needed. The river makes a nice backdrop.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Dakardrix, love  your idea... Wil chat to the girls...

Miles... we are looking at banking accounts at the moment... as soon as this is organised, you can pay for the whole calendar, it's not going to be a huge amount.  We are looking at launch date Beginning October... and yes, you guys will get a few voorsmakie pics... photo shoots start this weekend!   :thumleft:

Kurt, will chat to you later...
