The Rim Country Photography Club has once again assembled a breathtaking scenic calendar to raise money for area food banks.
The club is selling the $10 calendar all over the area, with the support of local businesses — who also bought ads to cover the cost of the printing. That means every dollar paid for the ideal, stocking-stuffer Christmas gifts will go to food banks.
The 2017 edition, featuring photos from around the Rim Country, benefited from the careful photo quality control applied by Nick Berezenko, an Arizona Highways photographer. The project drew the attention of a new graphic designer, Neil Fox.
The calendar features more photos and photographers, with not only big scenics but inset photos on the calendar itself.
Photography club President Greg McKelvey, remarked that “the level of quality photographers in our area is increasing. The Gila County college classes and the club develop more people interested in photography. Thanks to better quality and more top-notch photographers, the Rim Country is fast becoming the hot bed for photography.”
The club printed 500 calendars, with the help of 26 sponsors. If the run sells out, $5,000 will go to local food banks.
The club also offers anyone the opportunity to purchase a 11 x 14 or larger frameable print of any image in the calendar for a $10 donation. Half of the donation will go to the photographer and half to the food banks. Some images can be printed at a larger size, while some of the smaller insert images may not be quality enough for a frameable print.
