Stuck for ideas for the perfect Christmas gift, look no further the 2017 Fire Fighters Calendar is it! Shot, printed and produced on the Gold Coast as well as featuring Gold Coast locals Jeff Leech, Ty Hopson (lookout July) and Mark Saunders, it's a gift idea that can be given all in the name of good.
The Fire Fighters Calendar has been causing hot flushes since 1993, taken over by David Rogers in 2014, the calendar has now reached worldwide stardom. Featuring on the likes of the Drs. TV show in America and five different Japanese talk shows, these firies are showing no signs of cooling down any time soon, so much so, that they have even released a Fire Fighters Calendar app which allows you to pick and choose your own puppies and Firemen.
The best part about the calendar, aside from the photographs (which our Inside Gold Coast art department is lucky enough to edit), is that it's all done in a name of a good cause. Money raised from the calendar is donated to a variety of charities around the country that are in desperate need of support. Telethon, RSPCA, animal shelters, children's burns units, funding for facility dogs for children's hospitals just to name a few.
On the 3rd of December, Channel Nine will be airing a TV show on the making of the 2017 Fire Fighters calendar, following the guys on their 17 day shoot and giving us a look at what actually goes on behind the scenes. Firstly airing Australia wide and then launching internationally. You can have a sneak peak here.
