"Calendar Girls" style calendar, taking shots of the local people to Dpix for a charity calendar
VILLAGE COMES TOGETHER FOR FUND RAISING VENTURE: “STOKE PRIOR BARES ALL”
Towards the end of last year a few friends from our local pub, the Boat & Railway, in the village where the studio is based in Bromsgrove, came together in support of a popular local lady – Kim Chandler.
She regularly attends the ‘Gals Group’ at the Primrose Hospice in Bromsgrove but it needs funding. So, in support, a 2023 calendar was proposed and initiated by Kim’s friends and acquaintances living in and around Stoke Prior, that reflected the ‘Calendar Girls’ story. There could be no better way to acknowledge the fun and friendship that is so important to her.
As photographers, here at Dpix and Julie King Photography we were the natural choice to take the shots for our dear friend.
‘Stoke Prior Bares All’ includes its villagers, local stores, Kim, and of course the Boat and Railway where the whole idea was conceived. We not only took, and spent many hours in Photoshop editing but also took some “behind the scenes” images to be used as teasers in the run up to the launch of the calendar.
