Re: AIS Calendar photos
Please, no, please, no!!!! The last thing in the world that anyone should do
is aggressively promote their own irises for placement on the AIS calender.
Most, if not all, of the photographs on the calender are taken by George
Waters, who is internationally acknowledged to be one of the finest plant and
garden photographers in the world.
George is invited by botanic and horticultural organizations all over the
U.S. and Europe to give programs on plant and garden photography. He IS the
expert. The most certain way to get Olive Rice-Waters and George Waters
turned off doing the calender is to solicit them to put pictures of one's
irises in the calender. These are wonderful people who are scrupiously
fair...and they will not react positively to any such solicitation. Clarence
