THREE amazing individuals Brendan Bromfield, Leigh Emmy Eggars and Shane Doyle are the contributing photographers for the 2016 and#039;Contrasts of Africaand#039; wildlife calendar which raises funds for the Centre for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (Crow).

The calendar is produced by a voluntary organisation and#039;Under an African Skyand#039;, a Compass Medical Waste Services initiative, and the 2016 edition features black and white photographs.

According to Eggers her passion for wildlife goes back as far as she can remember.

“I recall our first family trips to Kruger and from a young age I was the one with a camera in hand taking photos of what we saw,” she said.

“Photography is a way for me to capture and share the beauty of what I see and Iand#039;m enjoying the journey of discovering how to improve my images and tell better stories with them.”

Eggers said it is a pleasure to be involved in the Under an African Sky (UAAS) calendar campaign and get behind the support of Crow. “I love their passion and how they go about caring for our treasured wildlife.”

For Bromfield the work that Crow does for wildlife rehabilitation is an inspiration to him. “It is amazing and an honour to be able to use my talents to support such a worthy cause,” he said.

“Although most of my time on this project is spent behind a computer designing the calendar, the part I enjoy most is being out in the wild looking for opportunities to capture these awesome scenes of nature. Every day in the bush is different and unpredictable - you never know what the day will bring.”

He said the 2016 calendar is the seventh calendar he has designed for UAAS.

“Every year is a challenge to try and better the previous years and produce a calendar that is unique and creative with top quality photos.

Doyle said that having grown up surrounded by a menagerie of animal life, he has always felt a strong connection to the furry and feathered creatures, so getting involved with Compass Medical Waste Services and Under An African Sky seemed like a natural progression for him.

“It has been heart-warming to see what the calendar campaign has done for animal welfare over the last six years.

“My only wish is that the project can grow to new levels to continue to help towards the much needed causes of Crow,” he added.

Each photograph of South Africaand#039;s wildlife has been bordered and is logo free so that the images can be framed after use.

The A2 wall calendar is printed in matt on high quality paper and presented in a striking gift box.
