Although I no longer work at The Bellingham Herald one of my last projects there was putting together a 2015 calendar. I am in Seattle now I haven’t seen the physical calendar yet, but I have heard it turned out well and they are selling the calendars for $3 at The Bellingham Herald customer service office or you can buy it online by CLICKING HERE.
The Herald released the 2015 calendar featuring 11 of my photos along with the cover (Fellow photographer Phil Dwyer snagged October’s fall color photo).
Below you can see all the photos that ran in the calendar categorized by month with the description the editorial staff at The Bellingham Herald wrote.
