A calendar in celebration of our love of chocolate and the classic American pin-up model.
Once upon a time, Wil Wheaton and Joel Watson got excited and made something. That inspired us to do the same! Photographer Eric Fiallos, Artist Debbie "Bobuta" Redfern and Chocolatier Extraordinaire R-Chi London got together, got excited and then got our friends involved.
Here's a sneak preview of some of the models we'll be using...
The Sweet Temptations 2012 Calendar is a work of love by a dedicated group of volunteers and is in support of local business in Arizona - models, make-up & hair stylists, photo studios, chocolates, artists, printers, and retailers. The theme for the photos in each month is based on one of R-chi's chocolate creations. We've amassed an incredible pool of local talent, planned out every last detail and somehow, through it all, managed to get even more excited in the process!
Of course we want to show our appreciation for your support, so take a look at the fabulous donation rewards we are offering. Every penny helps!
When we reach our goal, we plan to head immediately into the studio with the finished calendar schedule to ship November 1st. It will be available for purchase at select local retailers and online at the Official Sweet Temptations Website.
And if you have any questions, please feel free to use the contact form below.
Thank you so much for taking the time to check out our project. We hope you're as excited about seeing the finished calendar as we are in making it!
***PLEASE NOTE: Wil Wheaton and Joel Watson are the inspiration behind the creative spirit and energy that went into this project. They are in no way connected to or associated with the Sweet Temptations Calendar project.***
The classic American pin-up is an art form in and of itself. The Sweet Temptations calendar is a work of love by a dedicated group of volunteers and something that we hope you will admire for more than the next 12 months. This project is also about supporting local business in Arizona - models, make-up & hair stylists, photo studios, chocolates, artists, printers, and retailers.
We want to put forth a quality product from start to finish, which means renting professional studio space to shoot and working with a local print shop to produce the physical calendar. The models, makeup and hair stylists and production staff, however, are all volunteering their time and expertise to make this project a success and we would love to be able to thank them with more than a free copy of the finished product.
The photo shoot starts with a conversation about where you’d like to do the shoot and what kind of shoot you would like to do. Eric has worked with models who have no experience in front of the camera and will give you all the information you need to make your shoot go as smoothly as possible. On the day of the shoot, Eric will arrive to the location with backdrops, lights, props and anything else needed based on the consultation conversation. Depending on the complexity, the time of the shoot, from set up to break down, is between 2 and 3 hours. Within 2 weeks after your shoot, you will receive digital copies of your photos on a disc, along with a copyright release form that will allow you to get prints made at any photo processing center. The shoot is intended for an individual, but if you want to have someone there with you, that is more than okay.
