Each girl on their own bike, simulated riding shots with them in bikinis would be pretty sweet, can use a fan to get their hair moving.

Unzipped leathers with nothing underneath are win.

Oh ya and oil. Use lots of it. kthx.

and the main pic being the focus sounds good, the pics with background look good, but the 3rd one looks like the best type of layout to me. statistics/bio not really needed, maybe just a name/yrs riding or name/bike, if you have to put something. i doubt this is in the budget-or even if a budget exists, but how bout if you take a few different pics in the same location, but diff spots? make one the main one, and then shrink and super impose the other pics into that one big main pic? kinda like looking at quadruplets, the one big pic, and then sorta towards the corners you see her again, in dif poses/outfits etc, but on the fourth corner, probably the lower right or upper left, put the name/bike/yrs riding blend it all together and voila! badass calendar! a different location for each lady of course. hows that for a actual idea instead of jackassery?

You could also go for some different theme shots,

Examples, by the look ofthe bike of the moth pics Rae has done some work on hers, so a grease covered "mid action shots" may be the go ???

The next logical step could be cleaning it, ,,,, ah yea thats all i got

I am not a fan of the statistics either. Thats just my opinion. I follow KISS though.
Actually not a bad idea...

Yeha I think a couple of us are working on "grease monkey" shots.

Twinks the #2 & #4 layouts are more appealing to the eyes; they draw your eyes to the focal point on the page while the other images add substance. The #1 doesn't work because the pictures and the back ground conflicts with each other and the pictures looks odd shaped, distorting the overall picture. As for the # 3 there is too much clutter in that layout it may work for the collage page but not a single target.

Good work over all.

for those giving ideas, any chance you can kinda jumble something together in photoshop to give an example?

Great ideas so far, thanks guys!

move the strategic pics around and number of them depending on available areas in the background pic, keeps to what is selling the calendar. Anymore and it just looks cluttered.

I think any of the members who post a layout should be put on the "Calendar Committe" they obviously have shown an interest in the project... More than just looking at the very nice pictures.

Of course now that I've said that more may do that in hopes of seeing the nice pics so only ones who posted a layout till now... So that'd be Trip and me.


Hey you all stopped teasing I have to start teasing myself about the pictures you have.

You've seen enough to tease yourself for a very long time! Use your imagination, you'll be just fine.

Here's an idea, find one you can touch. You can get those tonight. It's done wonders for me.

Totally valid, very good points. Jackass.

I liked the third layout the best, although it was pretty cluttered. I was thinking the edges between the pictures could be softened. I like the second one too. Ultimately I really think it depends on how many poses/pictures are included for each girl. If she only submits one pose, #2 would be the best... if she submits two poses, neither 2 or 3 would work. If she submits a chitload of poses then Trip's KISS method would work well, as would option #3.

Oh, and what's to say that EVERY page has to have the exact same layout? What works well for one, might look like chit for another.

OK like I said. I was just playing. Quick things I threw together for ideas. Showing other ways to cram more pics in . I agree with OSP 100%
I didnt use any brushes or anything on what i threw together. Heres another idea and the space at the bottom would be for the bio or whatever

Which Format is going to be used for the Calendar it self?
The Type makes a difference of the Image format?

Single Page (A couple of Ideas)




Disregard the language...



The Over - Under



I like the table top Idea...
