Over half the year gone already and I hope that those who bought my 2021 Snowy Mountains Calendar are enjoying the photogenic qualities of the seven monthly images that they have seen so far. And, there are still five to go! My Snowy Mountains Calendar for 2022 is being prepared right now with thirteen photos showcasing the beauty of our home area for you to hang in your own home or office or to send to family and friends so that they can share in the photogenic qualities of where we live. The calendar will again be printed in Australia in A4 size (21×29.7cms) on glossy paper and will be available in August. Its price will be $17-95 which includes postage and packing to Australian addresses. If you can order by 31 July, the pre-publication price is $15-50. (Total refund if for any reason publication does not proceed.) I am a resident of the mountains and a regularly published photographer who has qualified as a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS). My fine art prints hang in private collections in Australia, The United Kingdom, Canada, and the Cayman Islands. My images for publication are sold through a major on-line photo library.
If you love the mountains you might be interested in this article that was published in the Australia and New Zealand magazine in the UK some time ago. I hadn’t moved to the mountains then but had visited them in winter and summer for decades. Now they are my home and have been for ten years. As a photographer I am overwhelmed at the beauty of this place and my files are filled with images of its ever-changing scenery.
I love using my photographs to promote the area among my friends and family. This year I have branched out by publishing a wall calendar of the Snowy Mountains for 2021 and have been pleasantly surprised with the sales which shows there are many who, like me, believe this part of Australia is worth supporting.
“As we round the bend and catch the first sight of Lake Jindabyne it feels as if we are coming home. Below us the hilltops that used to surround the old town of Jindabyne poke through the waters as islands. Beyond, the main range of the Australian Alps stands as a sturdy backdrop against the deep blue of a cloudless sky.”

Australia Post is doing its best under difficult circumstances but it will only get busier as on-line orders increase with the approach of Christmas so do be prepared for longer delivery times than normal.
Talking of gift ideas, as well as the posters, there are many in my on-line shop including photographic prints, e-books, greeting cards and, of course, my calendars for 2021 both wall and desk. https://davidbigwoodpublishing.blog/shop/
There are still 5 days left to take advantage of the Spring special promotion. The image above has just been added to the Snowy Mountains category.
As a special promotion my A3+ (48.3×32.9cms) prints in the categories of Snowy Mountains Australia, Home Décor and Glamour/Boudoir are being offered with a 40% discount for the month of September 2020.
I have also published 2 Desk Calendars (Snowy Mountains and Wildflowers of the Snowy Mountains) which come in a 12x14cm plastic case that converts into the stand for the calendar. It is not only suitable for use on a desk but also slips easily into a brief case or handbag. For the 2021 calendar we are also offering a refill for those who have previously bought the calendar and still have the plastic case.
