A Photo Contest and an Announcement

***Calendars for sale are no longer available except via request on my contact page***

Photo Contest!!!

I am very excited to announce the very first ever photo contest on Brendan’s Adventures.  The reason for the contest  in celebration of the launching of the new addition to my website, a photo shop.  In my shop I have a couple of photography related items for sale.  I have begun selling custom made calendars and photo books.  The ones that are listed at the moment are just the beginning, I will be constantly updating and increasing the number of items I have for sale as time goes on.  Check out the shop here.

The Calendars

The Calendars that I have created use all of my photography, but will be made specific to you the buyer to make this a

little more fun.  Upon purchase you can list any special dates that you would like added to the calendar and I will plug them in.  You might want to throw in all the birth dates of your family members, personal anniversaries, or anything.  One of the calendar types that I am selling relates to the art adjusted photography that I have been doing lately: the first of the series is called “A Cartoon World.”   However, the calendars don’t always have to be my creation.  If you would like, you can send me in photos and I can create a calendar for you using your very own photographic creations.

The Photo Books

Much like the calendars these books include my very own photography.  They come in 20 page varieties and along with the photos contain descriptive articles written by me.  But for me the most exciting aspect of these books will be that a little bit more of my personality will be thrown into the mix.  I will be doing creative writing for each page of the books.  Like the calendars, if you would like you could send me a number of pictures as well and I can create a personalized photo book for you.
