Do you need intelligence to qualify for that title.
The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.

Aiming for October for launch... we have been given some bikes to use in the Photoshoot that will only be launched then, so unable to launch earlier.

Fortunatly, this does allow us sufficient time to do re-prints, as we are expecting an unusually high  demand for this particular WD product!

Standards are pretty much the same... we have up to 3 photographers on site, all the lights, generators and power packs, make-up artists, hair people, etc.

The quality of the pics are very high!  :thumleft:

We are really trying to do something that you guys will actually want to have... we are printing full colour glossy, large format.  We even have graphic designers working on the final product! 

We felt that it should be something that could be marketed internationally... and that would be the basis for our standards!

Entirely different concept...

Locations are playing a huge part in this, we are striving to represent Africa, and then obviously the bikes and girls too... think on the lines of those Executive Calendars, Africa's beauty, together with the other two elements...  I'm sure you guys will be thrilled with the results... think Perelli calendar... think "Naughty but Nice" the theme for the girls...

Does this create imagry you guys may just be proud to purchase and display, even if you do not personally know all the girls involved?

Also, remember this is for the PAW project, so none of us are gaining from the project... all funds collected go to re-introducing packs into the wild!

Where did you get 12 WD girls? 

From the WD forum of course - we wanted active, WD girls that ride their own bikes and that's what we got as there are plenty around :)
