Photo Shoot For Charity

A behind-the-scenes look at the super hero photo shoot for the 2014 calendar being sold to raise funds for Brown Bagging It For Calgary Kids.  The 2 day shoot involved 22 models, 3 photo assistants and 1 stylist working at a Calgary photo studio. The most difficult shot required suspending a model upside-down from the 26′ high ceiling of the studio, but on a full stomach even that was pretty easy. Imagine putting in a full day on an empty stomach.

Because thousands of kids in Calgary try to learn on an empty stomach we are working with our partners to help BB4CK feed lunch to 10,000 school children in Calgary, that’s just 5 days of lunches for BB4CK. BB4CK works in partnership with Calgary schools to make and deliver free healthy lunches for students who would otherwise go hungry. Through the work of community groups and volunteers, BB4CK provides about 2,000 lunches each day. 

100% of the proceeds raised from the calendar sales will be donated to BB4CK. Calendars will be available in December. Be a super hero and order your calendar by contacting Gilmour Photography studio, 403-540-5530.  These will be an awesome gift for your clients, staff and friends.
