An appeal is being made for people to dress up in Victorian costume for a new calendar.
The appeal has been made by James Woolley, who lives in Kingsley, and who is aiming to produce a calender with any profits being given to charity.
James, who has produced similar calendars previously, explained: “It’s a project for the coming year over a period of several months.
“The ladies and gents involved will be dressed and photographed in Victorian costume.
“The dresses will be provided, although, if you have anything Victorian or anything that simulates Victorian we will be pleased to use it.
“This is not an obscure project that will be seen by a few people, rather a calendar that will be looked at by hundreds over 12 months or more.”
The photo shoots are set to take place at various places across the area and James is looking for 25 to 30 people to take part.
Participants will not get paid for the photographic work but will, instead, receive a published calendar and a number of large prints of their own choice, and a few location documentary prints.
James said: “On the other hand, a local charity, yet to be defined, will receive a sizeable donation from the calendar sales.
“When all the costs have been accounted for, the remaining profits from the sale of the calenders will be offered by myself and the photographer and probably some of the cast to a charity of our choosing.”
For anyone interested in joining the calendar cast, there will be an informal interview on an individual one-to-one basis.
James continued: “Perhaps even meet one of our already affirmed cast members – and a right friendly group they are too.
“If you are comfortable with the interview, a head and shoulders photo will be taken and you will be a member of a well-respected group of ladies and gents.”
The deadline for people to enquire to take part in this Victorian Calendar is mid to end of July.
James added about the project: “It is a really good enjoyable thing to do.”
