SpareFoot’s 2013 Self-Storage Calendar, titled Bust A Move-In, is hitting the presses just in time to add some saucy mischief to the storage world. According to our extensive research, our cheeky take on firefighter-style pin-up calendars is a first for our industry. Click below to start the slideshow.
“We’ve introduced a few firsts to self-storage,” said founder and December photo model Chuck Gordon. “Putting out the first self-storage pin-up calendar is just another in a series of industry innovations.”
SpareFoot is providing storage facility clients with an opportunity to request a free copy of the calendar; additional copies can be ordered for $20.00. We’ll donate our portion of the profits to Kure It, a non-profit dedicated to cancer research.
Almost 20 SpareFoot employees volunteered on a Saturday to shoot at Storage Direct, a local Austin self-storage facility. The scenes were shot over about three hours in a 10′ x 30′ outdoor unit and a 10′ x 5′ indoor unit.
“It was pretty much exactly what I would expect if you gave a bunch of SpareFeet the opportunity to hang out in a storage unit in front of a camera,” said marketing analyst Jeanette DeHay, who appears in the January and May group shots. “I was proud and excited to be a part of such a fun and weird company.”
While some employees, like customer service specialist Albert Hood–see October at your own risk–had no issue posing for the photographer, others, like November’s beefcake and public relations assistant Ross Betts, had to conquer internal fears before their scene.
“I felt empowered and vulnerable at the same time,” said Betts. “I had no idea what to expect, but the photographer really helped me feel comfortable in front of the camera. I have a newfound respect for models and other beautiful people.”
