January - Alvin Lawuharja


Gordon’s Bay, Sydney, Australia
Alvin and Niki, both look after IT. Once Niki submitted and got accepted, it was only natural to get Alvin to have a go. Life is more than just zeros and ones, right?

February - Hugh Fraser


Lake Wakatipu, near Glenorchy, New Zealand
Hugh has a thing about New Zealand, doesn’t he! Unless you go there, you don’t realise that it’s bloody hard to take a bad shot of the place. But, Hugh is GOOD… He’s even taken
Dave under his wing.

March - Alex Papamanuel


Kokkari, Samos Island, Greece
Paradise on earth has a name and its name is Samos! Last year was the only year, in the history of the calendar, that we didn’t include a photo of Era’s birthplace. I couldn’t let it happen
again this year. I took the original shot of Kokkari a few years ago. So Alex is following in his father’s footsteps, right?

April - Brian Dennis


I think that this is Brian’s second time in the calendar. He’s good, very good. He has skill, patience, and an “eye”.

May - Craig Kennedy


Uluru, Alice Springs, Australia
Some people call it Uluru, some Ayres Rock. It’s big. It’s beautiful. It’s Australian. When Craig isn’t taking photographs of rocks, he’s busy taking photos of floors for our next Floor
Coatings Brochure.

June - John Eve


Yabuli, near the city of Harbin, China
Gee, three “snowy” shots this year. What’s going on? Global warming… maybe! John, by the way, spent 20 years in Asia. Hence the Asian flavour to his photos.

July - Rob McLean


Christchurch, New Zealand
Rob actually went to Christchurch to sell a couple of buckets of polyurethane… But it snowed… This is NOT typical for Christchurch. So what could he do when the appointments
were cancelled?

August - George Papamanuel


Don and Bonnie Barge’s backyard, Portland, Oregon, USA
Gardens like this only appear in magazines, right? Five acres of magnificence at its best, so how could I resist!

September - Niki Sutisna


South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, USA
Niki is another one of our new photographer stars. We’ve done the “Bean”… so anybody who is prepared to stand in the middle of the road and click, deserves to get Chicago in again!

October - Nicolas Dolmaire


Sydney Cove, Sydney, Australia
Nicolas, like Emilie, comes from France. Superb photo huh! He tells me that this is the best shot of 15 that he took. I agree.

November - Dave Weir


Sunrise at Lennox Head, NSW, Australia
Dave gets to go to all sorts of esoteric places, like the Ukraine, Sweden, Finland, Dubai, Korea… and Lennox Head! Nice one Dave.

December - Emilie Degoue


Wineglass Bay, Freycinet National Park, Tasmania, Australia
Emilie is another new member of the Era family. She comes from France, has a wonderful eye for a good shot and the skill & the patience to make it work.
