Calendar Stories – 2017 Edition

Griffiths-Priday Ocean State Park, Copalis Beach, Washington

Every December my day-job company, Robinson Noble, puts together a calendar to send to clients. I provide all the photos in the calendar. This year is no exception, and our 2017 calendar will be mailed out probably next week. As part of the process, I annually write a post on the Robinson Noble blog telling a bit about the photos in the calendar. It is always interesting picking the images to be used in the calendar, which I do with the help of our business development manager. We select images from throughout the Pacific Northwest, since that is where most of our client are from. But it can be a bit of a challenge to pick images that not only represent differing parts of the Northwest, but also represent the months and seasons. Plus, you don’t want too many sunset pictures or too many images of Mount Rainier (I’m not sure, but the 2017 edition may be the first one without any images of Mount Rainier).

I took the image above at Griffiths-Priday Ocean State Park, which is located at the town of Copalis Beach on the Washington coast. In the calendar, it is the April photo. Washington has a lot of broad sandy beaches, and I always struggle to capture interesting images of them. Thanks to the curving stream on the beach at Griffiths-Priday, I think I succeeded in finally getting a good image of a sandy Washington beach.

2016 Calendar Stories

Washington State CapitalI haven’t posted in December, largely because I was off on vacation in Europe (more on that in a later post). But one post I do every December involves my day job at Robinson Noble. Every year Robinson Noble produces a calendar for clients and friends which features my photography. It has become my tradition to tell a little about each photo on the new calendar in a post on the Robinson Noble blog. I just posted my annual story. Some of the photos I’ve posted on my blog before, but some have not been posted here. If you want to see and read about the 2016 calendar images, click on this link to the story behind the photos.


2015 Calendar Stories

 

Rainier MorningIn my day job, I work at Robinson Noble. Every year they produce a calendar for clients and friends which features my photography. It has become my tradition to tell a little about each photo on the new calendar in a blog post on the Robinson Noble blog. The calendars were mailed out this week, and with the mailing, I just posted my annual story. Some of the photos I’ve posted on my blog before, but some have not been posted here.

Calendar Stories 2014 Edition

 

Dungeness Light and BakerAs I’ve written before, I work for a company called Robinson Noble, based in Tacoma, Washington. Each year, Robinson Noble produces a calendar for clients featuring photos I’ve taken. We limit the photos to scenes from the Pacific Northwest (where the majority of our business takes place). The calendar is always well received and appreciated. I recently wrote a post for the Robinson Noble blog that highlights the 12 images in the 2014 calendar and provides a back story to each image. Though I’ve shown many of the photos from the new calendar previously on this blog, there are several ones I have not shown. The photo above (of the Dungeness Light House with Mount Baker in the background) for example, is featured on the July page Robinson Noble’s 2014 calendar. If you get a chance, visit my Robinson Noble blog post about the 2014 calendar and tell me what you think.


Calendar Photo Stories

Haystack RockAs many of my regular readers know, I have a day job as a hydrogeologist. I work for a company called Robinson Noble, based in Tacoma, Washington. Each year, Robinson Noble produces a calendar for clients. Many companies do something similar (so far this month, I’ve received two calendars from engineering companies, one from a well driller, and one from a trucking company). We differentiate our calendar from all the others by making it large and useable (when open, it is roughly 16×24 inches, with room to write appointments on the days), but especially by using my photography (a principal in the company) rather than stock photography. We also limit the photos to scenes from the Pacific Northwest (where the majority of our business takes place). The calendar is always well received and appreciated.

I recently wrote a post for the Robinson Noble blog that highlights the 12 images in the 2013 calendar and provides a back story to each image. Though I’ve shown many of the photos from the new calendar previously on this blog, there are several ones I have not shown. The photo above (of Haystack Rock at Pacific City, Oregon), for example, is featured on the cover of Robinson Noble’s 2013 calendar.
