Every year for the past few years I’ve shot each season according to the Australian Calendar. At the end of Winter each year I make the difficult short list selections from each season. Then the even harder decisions are made culling the sort list down to the final 13 from each season.
Every year I get some wanting the cover image replicated as one of the months inside the calendar but if I did this I’d only be able to select 12 and you’d miss out on seeing one of these photos. As it is there are many beautiful photos that didn’t make the final selection. If you represent a large organisation I’d be happy to share some of these photos with you in your own custom 2024 calendar. Contact me before the end of October to make it possible to get them to you before the end of the year.
One change in the 2024 calendars from the previous years is some extra photos on the date pages. When you think you have worked out how I selected those photos let me know and find out if you are correct.
Although each season is photographed in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia they each have their own unique feel.

I’ll be honest and say I did consider deleting the line about supporting the causes I like to donate to each year. The Sanghaya Foundation helps rescue adults and children out of human trafficking and give them an education and micro loans so they can provide for themselves and their families. The Hungry Children Foundation helps provide food, self sufficiency and medical assistance to those needing a hand up. With my family losing almost everything in a fire in September many would understand if I used the money to support them instead. If it wasn’t for them no longer calling me their family it’s possible these photos could have been ashes. I still love and care for them so if you include anything extra with your purchase I’ll make sure to pass it on to them.
The past four seasons have been difficult for me to live let alone shoot enough to produce this collection. Breaking my collar bone badly and then getting a severely frozen shoulder has led to a very limited year heavily relying on the assistance of others. I’m grateful to the friends and family that aided in being able to shoot enough to share with you these beautiful photographs. I did wonder along the way if any of the seasons wouldn’t happen. Unfortunately the yearly marshmallow farmer collection which I shoot across all seasons didn’t get shot. If you want to give me some extra incentive to shoot a 2025 collection pre order now.
