Budapest – grand and glorious

Door number two of our Calvendo Advent calendar opens up to a stunning sight: Budapest’s stand-out parliament building, beautifully captured in Lance M. Griffin’s Danube River Nightlights calendar. Which is, by the way, full of beautiful shots of the Hungarian’s capital great landmarks by night. Take a look! And discover many unique perspectives …



Kick off for our 2016 Advent calendar!

Hooray, it’s that time of year again: 1st December, we’re seriously getting into the mood for Christmas now and are launching our very special Calvendo Advent calendar, opening one door every day until Christmas to reveal great images and, of course, calendars. Don’t miss our creative treats! You’ll meet a lot of our fab self-publishers along the way and maybe even find some inspiration for a unique Christmas gift ….

Opening door number one and we’re saying hello to this lovely little fella from Alan Tunnicliffe’s Popular Garden Birds in the United Kingdom wall calendar. A great one if you enjoy birds! (Obviously :-))




CALVENDO self-publishers in conversation: Terry Hewlett

No matter if power- or narrowboats, Terry Hewlett has it all covered in his Calvendo calendar portfolio (and more!). The Wiltshire-based photographer, who also runs photography workshops, has more than 40 years of professional experience. Working as a wedding photographer, he has had many a (hopefully) happy couple in front of his lense and now intends to concentrate more on his “old love” landscape photography in future. Learn more about the Royal Photographic Society associate in our interview and don’t miss his really good advice on the process of creating calendars!


Terry, can you talk a bit about your background as a photographer and how and when you took up photography?

My passion for photography extends way back to my teenage years when I left my then current employment and started a 2-year full time photography course. During my two years I won a Royal Society of Arts Bursary competition. I then ran a commercial photographic studio in Northern Ireland.
