1. When Somerset photographer Jason Bryant decided to shoot an American Beauty inspired charity calendar, this is the kind of shoot he had in mind.
“Need a model to recreate the American Beauty picture,” he posted on Facebook. “Over 18 and blonde please.
“Contact me if you fancy it, the shoot will be in two weeks’ time.”
2. Instead, he ended up shooting Michael Eavis, the 78-year-old founder of Glastonbury, stark naked.
You see, Jason’s Facebook friends suggested that instead of featuring sexy babes, his calendar ought to focus on old, naked, bald Somerset legends.
And, like an absolute champion, Jason agreed.
And so the Legends of Somerset calendar was born.
The Legends of Somerset calendar costs £10, and its proceeds will go to Macmillan Cancer Support. Click here for more information.
