Calendars now ready for pre-order

It’s that season again. Bears fatten up, birds fly south, and Austin stresses about having 12 photographs to perfectly represent every month of the year.

Luckily, I have over 25,000 photos from January 1, 2020, to today, to choose from.

And all you have to do is sit back, pour some eggnog, and reserve your 2021 Conservation Calendar.

Curious which photos will make the cut?

Check out my gallery, Facebook, and Instagram. Leave comments—they may or may not influence my decisions.

Chances are, a few never-before-seen photos will don those magnificent pages. And don’t sleep on those waiting in October, November, and December.

Happy fall!

Calendars are back for 2020!

Last November, I started a new holiday tradition: poring over thousands of my latest nature photos to nominate 12 favorites to adorn the pages of a luxurious wall calendar.

Friends loved the calendars so much that I had to bring them back for 2020.

2020 Calendars

  • Full-size original bird and landscape photographs matching the seasons with descriptions and locations included

  • Flip style wall calendar, 11″ x 17″, printed on thick, premium paper

  • Special holidays included like World Water Day and National Public Lands Day (when you can visit National Parks for free!)

  • $30 each

A holiday gift

Last season, these calendars sold out before Christmas.

To keep prices down, I order calendars in batches. I’ll have two batches: one placed on December 5 and one in mid-January. If you want your calendar for the holidays, order before December 5.

Spread the love and get $10 off

Ordering a calendar for a friend or relative and one for yourself? Don’t feel guilty. This year, if you order more than one calendar, I’ll give you $10 off your order.

Ordering more than 5 calendars? Contact me and I’ll give you a discountspreading kindness and the value of conservation is more important than money.

It looks and feels great—the extra-large pages, the texture of the paper, and the detail in the special days—the calendar was a favorite all year long.

To calculate your payment, multiply the number of calendars by $30, add the cost of shipping, and subtract $10 if you ordered more than one calendar. You will receive an order confirmation within 48 hours.

New Cards!

The past few months I’ve been perfecting the art of the photograph card. How thick should the card stock be? Where do I order supplies? How do I cut out a hole for the photo? Does the spacing need another eighth of an inch? My family and friends gave helpful suggestions to improve the design from the first not-so-perfected cards to the final product.

After much ado, I finally made the ideal card.

Austin making cards
The labor-intensive handmade card process.

In the convenient form of a blank note card, these fine art photograph cards are handmade and the highest quality—an impressive medium to send your own thoughts or congratulations to your friends, loved ones, or anyone who loves the outdoors. Now you can send a physical copy of your favorite photographs, on premium card stock, with your handwritten message.

Card details

• Photographs are printed on high quality 4 x 6 inch glossy photo paper.

• Cards measure 5 x 7 inches.

• Off-white, premium, smooth card stock cards are blank inside for your personalized message.

• The card back includes the photograph subject and location handwritten by Austin for a personalized touch.

• Matching envelopes are included. Cards need only one stamp to mail.

• Cards are protected in a rigid envelope for mailing. I’m proud to ship with environmentally responsible plastic-free packaging.

The back of each card includes a handwritten title and location.
