BC: Bernie Welch III Welch3 Photography 614-467-0097 Welch3Photography@gmail.com www.welch3photography.com Find and "Like" us on Facebook - Welch3 Photography | This project would not have been possible without the support, encouragement and positive reinforcement from all of the family, friends and fans of Welch3 Photography. Big, super, extra thanks to my Artistic Director and smokin' hot wife Jessica, who without her support and eye for detail, would have had the fellas on less than their A1 game (That's a A with high effort by the way). I want to thank the girlfriend's, wives and significant others who were willing to lend me their husbands, boyfriends and fiancés. I know its hard lending your man to be eye candy for hundreds of people to look at for a year, but trust me, it's definitely for a good cause. It has been a real pleasure to shoot this calendar and can't wait to see what the 2013 calendar has in store. | Welch3 Photography.com | You Envision, We Deliver.
