Nationally Recognized “Not So Heavenly Bodies” Calendar of Bismarck Photographers Continues to Raise Funding for North Dakota Organizations
BISMARCK, ND (KFYR) – Bikers are known for their motorcycles, rallies, and tattoos, but most aren’t scary.
“Okay, give me a little daring,” said Beth Nielsen, creator of the Not So Heavenly Bodies calendar.
Beth Nielsen is in her element.
This secret photoshoot at Hermanson Ranch is for her upcoming nationally-acclaimed calendar, Not So Heavenly Bodies. We were asked to hide the identity of the model so that his audience would be surprised.
“It was literally a joke. We were sitting in a bar, and I was bored, and I said, “You guys, wouldn’t it be fun if we did? [a calendar]? ‘ Here we are three years later and a third timeline, ”Nielsen said.
The model, which we will call ‘Mr. May 2022, ”Beth contacted with ideas for the annual tradition.
“I said, ‘I’m just going to run something through you.’ I said, ‘How about a sombrero and a live donkey’ and she said, ‘Oh my god, yeah,’ ”Mr May 2022 said.
Each rider models his own month. This year, money raised by Not So Heavenly Bodies will go to Sporting Chance, an organization that helps people with disabilities experience the outdoors.
“Guys always show up 110%. So it doesn’t really matter what I do, they always go for it, ”Nielsen said.
Dave said he looks forward to having fun and hopes they will come back for another photo op.
“There has been a lot of crazy stuff here, but this could be the best of the cake,” Hermanson said.
Beth and her models will continue to create new image themes. However, the idea of next year is a secret.
Nielsen said she was almost halfway through designing the calendar. It should be available for sale in August.
