Good friend and Currumbin based adventure photographer Ted Grambeau has an international photographic career spanning 35 years. If you wonder how he has lasted so long, to me it is pretty obvious: he works hard at keeping himself top of mind with his client base. And, of course, he takes some amazing photos.
I've just spent half an hour ogling his website - http://www.tedgrambeau.com/folio - and being amazed at the standard of work. Early in his career, Ted worked for some of Australia's leading advertising photographers and you can see this experience in everything he shoots, from his sense of composition to his ability with light.
And as an advertising photographer, what better way to keep in contact with the people who hire and recommend you than creating a calendar with them involved!
Ted has produced a limited edition calendar for 2014, inviting 12 designer friends to take any of his photographs and design a calendar page. The results were really interesting - some I loved, some were more challenging, and isn't that what design is all about!
Ted described the project as, “A way of celebrating the talent I have had the privilege to work with, as well as revealing the creative depth in our own back yard”.
Whilst the Calendar will serve as a showcase for Ted within the industry, a limited number of only 250 of these collector editions will be for sale to the public - $49 each!
And as Ted says, at 490 mm square, you can take one or all of these pages and frame them if you wish. Postage and packaging is a little more – click here for details.
