The calendar concept came about 7 years ago when he decided to get involved in producing his own calendars, initially looking for sponsors to put the calendar together, however that didn’t turn out too well, so he decided to work a different angle where everybody who was involved does it to gain exposure, talented artists, fresh models hungry to get onto the scene. Over the years the calendar has built up momentum and has now given him the ability to command as it has placed him in a league of elites.
