Using inspiration and photography to aid those in need this Christmas | Northern Light Calendars

Updated: Nov 1, 2022

The 2023 northern lights inspirational calendars are now on sale, with sales benefiting a local food bank and charity in Regina this holiday season.

Over the years, I've created calendars for a number of purposes. In 2017, I donated 100% of the proceeds to Pinehouse Lake Saskatchewan families in need for Christmas. We were able to put on a community Christmas supper for families in need, complete with free haircuts, free photos with Santa, awards, donations, and gifts for the kids, thanks to the earnings and the workers at the local health center, who cooked and helped arrange!

We sold a record number of calendars in 2018, due in part to the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses and the Collage of Nurses for their support of our work with the local youth photography club. And we invested all of the proceeds in the Pinehouse Photography Club.

I haven't been able to put together calendars in a few years due to carbon monoxide poisoning, among other things, whilst living in the north. But, happily, I survived to see another day. The past is the past, and I'm pleased to inform that we will be selling calendars again this Christmas.

Many hours were spent gathering photos from the thousands collected during the previous year. I had to tweak the graphics and quotes a few times until we got it right.

Dre has a true passion for photography, but his night time photography is what really sets him apart from the rest. It takes a lot of patience, planning and instinct to have a successful aurora chase! Highly recommend this photographer as the qualities listed above, cannot be bought nor can they be faked

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. That is what happened for me today as I viewed his once in a lifetime shot of an Aurora Borealis that spoke to me in an extremely meaningful way of a Butterfly and Angel. Delving into his long (and continuing) list of talents and accomplishments, I look forward to following Dre Erwin’s photography and life’s journey. It is a good day!

By putting cameras in the hands of these youth, a nurse literally is saving lives in the north.

Love Dre’s photography! It is breathtaking and vibrant - life affirming! Recommend following his photography as it provides calm and peace at the end of the day!
