I know it is kind of late in the year but by popular demand I am making a 2015 Fiero calendar this is the Mile High Fieros calendar I have been making for years now.
I am sure there are a lot of good calendar worthy pictures out there. I am taking submissions for the 2015 calendar until November 1st. You still have time to take some good pictures, if you have a good picture or two please send them to me at info@milehighfieros.com (Please do NOT click the email link in this thread to email me pictures it is not the one I want you to send them too use the info@milehighfieros.com ONLY)

The rules are:

High-resolution photos only please send one or two no more than two please.
Include your name, Pennock’s handle, and the location you want shown with your picture (City, State).

Things I want to see: Fieros in interesting places, IE: Landmarks, race tracks, beautiful scenery in the back ground or cool settings, urban setting are ok too as long as the content is interesting, NOT in your driveway or a parking lot.

Things I do NOT want to see: People posing with cars like Hooters girls on or around your car, any pictures with scantily clad women will be deleted and not considered. This is a calendar featuring Fieros and in interesting places nothing else. Do NOT send pictures of Fieros in driveways, parking lots or anything you would see driving around town.

You do not need to have a show car you just need to have your car in a good picture with interesting content. If the car has a few flaws and the picture is good, I can touch it up and remove a sign or small items, so do not worry about a small flaw if the picture is good.

I make one or two every year for those of you that have not seen them click the link for my past calendars; it will give you a good idea of what I am looking for. http://www.zazzle.com/mile+high+fieros+gifts

Picture Ideas and suggestions:
I would love to see what people have if it is interesting, I like when people think out side the box when taking Fiero pictures, so be creative and make it INTERESTING. Take pictures from above, below, strange angles, different places and INTERESTING places. I like themes too, look around your area I am sure there are some places people would not think to take pictures, RR depots, old buildings nice or dilapidated, land marks, military stuff, natural wonders, wild life in the back ground, Art like statues of cool or historical stuff, grave yards or cemeteries, airplanes, helicopters, NASA or space stuff, I am sure there are more things I could suggest but I will stop and let you think about what your area has to offer and see what you all come up with for this year.
Remove your antenna before taking pictures some people have even taken the wipers off to get that clean sleek look.
turn you wheels so the face of the wheel in toward the camera and not the bottom of the tire.

Did I mention to make you backgrounds and picture INTERESTING.

Photoshop is allowed and this year encouraged as long as it does not look too fake or sloppy, if you can put your Fiero in front of the Taj Mahal http://www.tajmahal.gov.in/video_clips.html the Eiffel tower http://www.toureiffel.paris/en/eiffel-gallery.html or another landmark and it looks real and good go for it get creative and send it to me I just might use it.

You can submit more pictures later if you get one you like better than the ones you have already sent in. Just let me know so I can add it to you folder if I already made one for you. Just do not send me 10 or 20 pictures in one email please.

Great to see you are doing this again this year! I like the full size images, and the large format of the calendar. Not sure if I can get one in to you this year, but hopefully next year!

Just a thought...would it be possible to do the one large main picture and maybe three smaller pictures on the right hand side showing interior, engine bay, and one other? Some of the Fieros I have seen are just as devastatingly good looking on the inside as they are on the outside!

+1 ! ! !
John, what a fantastic idea! That would be over the top, if you can get the pictures that you need from people. It would make it one very unique calendar for sure! There are some amazing interiors out there, and it would be a great way to showcase them!

That is a possibility but if you look at all my calendars you will see that I try and make the background as interesting as the car in my calendar pictures so it would kind of be just about the car and not about the cool Fiero in a cool location which is what I like to show. I would consider it if I did not get enough Fieros in cool places to fill 12 months.

Maybe I could do that for the cover or the back page? Lets see what I get.

I doubt you will get enough of the cars with 3 interior shots, and in a good location, scenery ect. Maybe just an option for those that supply those images.

I picture a wide format calendar, 3 smaller inlay photo's taking up say the "right column. edge of the page", with a shot of the car with the full scenery stretched to the full remaining space.

The other option would be the full image, with 3 inlays over the top of the image, and obstructing the background / scenery.

It's your calendar, and most certainly your decision. Just tossing out ideas here.

I almost did not do the calendar this year as it takes a lot of time to gather, edit and publish and I work about 10 hours a day take care of my elderly Dad & ancient dog, try and run the local Fiero club and fit in a little time to get my personal necessities done, so if I make some typos, misspell something or miss a question, I apologize in advance as I sure it will happen from time to time as I am just very short on time right now. I will do the best I can.

To make less work for me and to keep it interesting I am adding the following:

If you are good with Photoshop and have a good picture please remove the antenna from the picture and any other unsightly items like litter, signs or blemishes in you cars paint. (or remove the antenna before you take the picture)

Photoshop is allowed as long as it does not look too fake, if you can put your Fiero in front of the Taj Mahal http://www.tajmahal.gov.in/video_clips.html the Eiffel tower http://www.toureiffel.paris/en/eiffel-gallery.html or another landmark and it looks real go for it and send it to me I just might use it.

The photos need to be high res so send them as large as you want but not smaller than 800KB if possible.

As for the deadline to get them in I will say November 15th. I am getting a late start but want to get it done in time for people to get them for Christmas but I am flexible if I do not get enough by then, I will post and let everyone know if I need more or have enough near that date.

I would love to submit some photo's, but I am afraid I do not trust taking the car past the edge of the driveway at this point till I can get the issues I am having resolved

At this point, I am hoping to have it ready for Daytona next year LOL! Are you gonna make it to Daytona again, I hope so! I will contact Iron Man and let him know you are in town

I do not know if I will come out next year yet I will if I can, and thanks for reminding me about Iron Man, every time I think about that guy it makes me laugh he was a very strange man. So bizarre it was!

As far as pictures of your car goes I say take a few good pictures of it against a white wall and photoshop it into a cool background

I got your pictures and I do like them do you have a wider version of the one in front of the neon lights it may or may not fit in the almost square format of the calendar, if not the other might work. I will let you know.

well if you or anyone get the pictures but it is past the dead line I will save them for the next year if they are calendar worthy.

I would like to thank Cliff for changing the title of my post to 2015 so everyone can rest easy and stop telling me I typed it wrong, it is fixed now.

THANKS cliff.

I just want to thank everyone for all the great pictures I should have a good calendar this year. I hope to have it for sale before Thanksgiving so you can get them before Christmas.

Maybe next year for the Texas Fieros take some pictures in the next 10 months and send them to me when you get them.
