Press Release Summary: Calendar comprises a collection of spectacular photos taken
during Michael’s recent trip to the Masai Mara, Kenya

Press Release Body: Alton, Hampshire: Michael Huggan, the gold medallist and
Associate of the Royal Photographic Society (APRS) proudly announces that his
African Wildlife Calendar 2009 is now available.

The calendar comprises 13 breathtaking shots - one for each month of the year plus
the cover photo.

“The images chosen for my 2009 calendar are from a trip to Kenya, early in 2008.
This was a turbulent time for Kenya as political unrest and riots resulted in a huge
impact on visitor numbers to the country. However, determined as ever to go, my wife
and I travelled to the Masai Mara, staying once again at Governors main camp.

“This was the first time I had ever experienced the Masai Mara with green grass, not
brown! This was a result of the tremendous rain and thunderstorms that frequently
deluged the plains, and our tent!” recounts Michael.

“Fortunately for us, the heavy rains came at night. However, during the day the
build up of storm clouds dispersed with sunshine bathing the plains and animals in a
truly spectacular light. January’s image of the hippo and November’s image of the
tree and elephants show the quality of the outstanding light.”

Michael Huggan’s 2009 African Wildlife Calendar – the ideal Christmas gift - is
exclusively available here: It measures
42 x 29 cm (A3), is priced at £10 plus postage & packing (only £3 for delivery to UK
addresses) and includes stunning shots of lions, cheetahs, African buffalo,
hippopotamus, giraffe, elephants, leopards and impala.

“Africa has a special place in my heart and I hope some of the passion I share for
this magnificent country is conveyed through the images in my 2009 calendar. Each
month tells a story, and I trust you will enjoy the journey throughout the year
