Maybe some centralized organization that tackles issues that are pertinent to everyone? Like maybe something that fights BSL? That's an issue that crosses national and continental boundaries.

Yup. And we can pick one later. Could be anything. And it just all depends on how much we want to pay for the calendars and what kind of deals we can get.

One thing that would help is if people called their local printers and found out what they charged. I think it would be cheaper to go that way then to get one of the bigger online sites to do it. They charge quite a bit.

I just think that people who don't have their dog pic in the calender, are not going to buy it.. Just a thought!

We'll need an idea of the quantities involved. Nothing concrete, just a few figures - 500? 1000? 2500?

I buy calendars all the time that don't have my animals in it! Mine aren't going to be in it. I'm not entering but I'll still buy one of all my dog friends!


I think since this is the first year we should keep the numbers lower.

About cameras...

I'm not saying that a high quality SLR style camera doesn't help. Guaranteed it does. But don't let that stop you from taking as many pics as you can and learning the most about what your camera's abilities and limits are.

My photojournalism teacher is VERY skilled. When she was just starting out she had a little point and shoot and ended up on a football field with all the hot shot reporters. She got the shot of the night when she caught the action from between the legs of one of the refs.

Creativity more than anything makes a good photographer. That and acting quickly! You have to recognize the moment and that can be learned.

Here is one of my fave pics that have been submitted so far. It was taken by a HP Photosmart so it has limits. But it's a cute shot and it works. There's some shadow on the face but hopefully that can be lightened a bit in photoshop.

So don't limit yourselves! If you don't know much about the camera you already have then go online and read reviews on it. Find out what it's good at and what it's not good at and then work with it

If we wanted to save on costs we could also go black and white. Just throwing a random thought out there
