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"
* 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
