Keith Sharples Photography climbing:09£12.99, added Oct/2008, see all Keith Sharples Photography news & reviews
announcement by Keith Sharples Photography
climbing:09 is a 13 month, A3-sized full colour, spiral bound calendar which comes with the A2-sized 2009 Year Planner/Poster.
climbing:09 retains all the usual features but has a bit of a different feel to it this year– see the front cover image for a taster.
Ako Shillitoe, the front cover girl was a “bit shy about being on the front cover...” but quickly added “it was worth the fight with the midges though to get a cool shot”. For the record Ako is topping out on Fagin's Ridge, a highball Font 4, at her local crag, Widdop.
Ian Dunn, MD of Ako's local climbing wall and a man never short of an opinion or three, emailed to say it was “great to see an ace photo of Ako on the cover of the calendar. She's a regular at Climb Rochdale and I bet she gets asked to sign lots of copies.”
Top rock-jock and former cover-star, Steve McClure, deposed for climbing:09 by Ako, didn't argue either “great shot on the cover” was his comment.
