Hi everyone-

Here is a second Monday post to announce that The International Association of Firefighters 2009 Burn Foundation Calendars are now available.

My image, Burn Day, shown above was selected as this years calendar cover image.

The following is a paragraph from the Burn Foundations website for those of you who might be unfamiliar with the program:


Every year, the IAFF Burn Foundation sponsors the IAFF National Children's Burn Camp in Washington, D.C. The Foundation draws a young burn survivor (ages 13 to 15) along with professional fire fighter/counselor from each of the more than 40 regional burn camps throughout the United States and Canada to attend the National Camp. The chosen individuals are brought to Washington, DC for week-long, once-in-a-lifetime trip where they tour the monuments, memorials, and museums; visit the White House and the Capitol; meet national leaders; and spend time with local fire fighters. Since its inception over a decade ago, the IAFF National Children's Burn Camp has earned an international reputation as a model for burn survivor support.

Get a glimpse of the National Children's Burn Camp by viewing the Camp Video. “

I am posting today to provide you with the link and address so that you might purchase one of these calendars. A majority of the proceeds of the sale go directly to support the Burn Foundation Program. The calendar features IAFF firefighters in action from across North America.

Your purchase would support a great cause. Please consider purchasing a calendar for not only your self but also as a gift to someone you love or your favorite firefighter. Your purchase will certainly help change the life of a young burn survivor.

Here is a link to the website where you can purchase the calendar:


Thank you for your time and generosity!

On another related note my image "More Pressure Here" won an honorable mention in the 2008 IAFF Media Awards Competition. That image is shown below:

It is one of your most powerful images Brian. You have transcended some earlier images where technique was sometimes a tad too apparent. Here you are working in the realm of pure story teller... You're communicating both ideas and feelings. Wonderful how this image needs not word one to make it resonate. And the authenticity which your own experience brings to it will make it particularly powerful to the firefighters themselves.
