Help guys. WD Calendar 2010 – Photographic Locations
« on: April 03, 2009, 08:05:15 am »
After meeting with our photographer last night, we have sketched , to a large extent, the general idea of what will be done with this project .  Us girls are pretty damn excited about the direction we are to take this project, which is, together with providing you guys with some droolable photographic content, a collection of funds to ultimately be donated to the Wild Dog project in Northern Namibia.   :thumleft:

Now we need your help again.  We are looking for some pretty fantastic  locations where we can have photographic shoots.  Please bear in mind that the location needs to be VERY isolated… due the nature of the pics being taken, it will not be possible if spectators are around.  Also, as we are shooting from Jhb... the locations need to be within an hours radius of 4-ways, more or less (less better).  I’m aware that this is going to be rather difficult, but I’m pretty sure that we will find what we are looking for if we have help here! 

The initial locations required are: 
1. Small Stream with lots of green, trees, ferns, that type of thing…. where a bike can be man-handled (read woman) into the stream bed… if there is a lot of granite in the bed, great…
2. Open grass lands… big acacia tree in area… lots of bushveld behind.
3.  Isolated building, if whitewashed, great… otherwise, just a strong feeling of isolation, with a strong desert feeling… very dry view!
4. – 12… I’ll fill this in later…

If you guys do know of a particular location that you would like to see in this project, please contribute.  If possible, supply us with a pic and the location.  We are very open for ideas. 
If this comes out half as good as we are hoping, we’ll be thrilled with the results!  It’s really going to be something special! 

And here is the bait… The submitting individual of any location chosen to be used in the final calendar, will receive a free copy of the Calendar. 

The pics below give some indication of the types of locations we have in mind….
They call me Judy or Judes...

Dont be a woozie, get the gals together, pack your bikes and go and look for the perfect spot. That would be true WD lady style. :thumleft:

This is an understatement  ;) as it’s going to turn out even better than we are hoping for and for it’s going to be flipping awesome!!  :ricky:

So as Mal said, we would appreciate all suggestions and support  :thumleft:

Ama - a great idea yes, which we thought about, but time and planning is crucial to get this product 100% and if we did that we would  need to make it a 3 weeks trip of it and not sure the men would survive that long without their ladies ;)

A place comes to mind.

The farm I grew up on has some amazing bits of river, and some interesting deserted buildings.

Was on your left at the place we hit the tar on the "Chase the Train" ride.

I have the number of the farm caretaker and I think I could organise a visit there. It has security at the gate, so would be very private - in fact the place is pretty deserted.

Some pics at the end of this fred to give an idea.

Oh, and also the owner of the Koi farm on the next farm invited me to see the river on his farm (downstream of the other farm).

He has a few hundred meters of river frontage - in undeveloped state. I never took up his invite though.
