On the run up to Christmas I was asked by a friend if I could help him shoot a calendar for his girlfriend, sounds normal enough. Well, not quite. Apparently my friend and his better half have a running joke about how he eats and they kept joking about getting photos of him filling his mouth with food and he decided a calendar would be perfect for this. As soon as the brief was described to me I was on board, this sounded like fun.
So we met for a pint to go over ideas. We quickly agreed that we should theme the months where we could, so that sorted out a few of months and some other random ideas we liked. We figured out what foods we wanted for which months and even coordinated some clothing to match. A few days later it was off to the studio, here are the results.
I have to say; this shoot was a lot of fun. It was messy and there was a lot of cleaning up to do afterwords but it was a great laugh. This was all shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M5, M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm 1:2.8 lens and a up to three studio strobes.
