Introducing......Following Mark Mennie


Introducing: Following Mark Mennie

Mark Mennie, International Man of Mystery or just plain busy? Mark bounces around continents like most people commute to work each day...In an effort for me- Charli- (his trusted publicity rep, just like "M" in the 007 movies, but of course much younger!) to keep tabs on his jet setting..."Following Mark Mennie" was developed. A weekly or monthly, blog, which I hope will keep his subscribers (and myself) posted on his whereabouts, give sneak peaks into his latest projects and of course chronicle all his adventures along the way. So subscribe, place your tray tables in an upright position, fasten your seatbelt and enjoy your flight...

Until our next mission- Charli

Rumor has it......

So folks I don’t know much, but Mark has indeed been in Calgary the last couple of weeks shooting the infamous Outriders Calendar.  For those of you who DON’T know already, Mark has been the official Outriders' (Cheerleaders for the CFL Calgary Stampeders) photographer over the past 10 years.  EXTREMELY tight lipped this go around, Mark has given me little to nothing to go by; apart that the team is a buzz about the results after individually selecting their choice from their session with Mark.  I do know however that the team’s portraits should be up on their site hopefully this week, so please check it out: http://www.stampeders.com/cheerleaders.  Besides shooting the ladies for their roster pictures, Mark also shot them for the Outrider’s always sought after and successful annual calendar spreads.  After literally hours of the Spanish Inquisition, Mark gave me the following morsels and “sneak peak”.  Enjoy!


Until next time....

* Rumor has it that the calendar will follow a "Football theme" this year....
* Rumor has it that each Outrider will get her "own" page!
* Rumor has it that this year’s calendar utilizes a new collaboration between Mark and photographer, Waldy Martens.   It was said that Waldy’s art direction has produced some extraordinary results and the Team (Cheerleaders) is all a buzz.
* Rumor has it that the BC Lions' Felions Cheerleader Photographer saw Waldy working on the imagery on his computer in Vancouver and was jealous (or impressed) ...
* Rumor has it could be the best Cheer Calendar in the CFL this year...look out Grey Cup Fans in Toronto this November...this WILL be a hot item!
