Amazing Greicy is back! Short film starts as we are driving to the beach at 5 am. Everyone is really tired but we get great shots! And then there is a quick glance into shooting in the afternoon on a public beach.

3750 calendars were put on a truck today. This truck is leaving from Billings, Montana to go to Texas. From Texas these calendars will get shipped to Iraq and Afghanistan and eventually find their way to the troops on the front of the lines.
This shipment is the first of four shipments going out in the next four weeks. This brings the total Girls of Brazil 2009 calendars donated to the troop at 20,000.

2009 Girls of Brazil participant, Marcia Spezia, is a Playmate of the month for the January edition of Brazil Playboy Magazine. Marcia was one of 18 participants in the making of the 2009 Girls of Brazil calendar. And although she was not chosen as one of the 14 girls displayed in the calendar then it was more because I could not get a great photograph then because of anything about her. She was a true professional and I am gratefull she was able to participate.

It has been a crazy time the past months in Floripa. My project was scheduled to start in November. But during November then the region suffered epic flooding. It literrally had rained everyday for months. And unfortunately 128 died as a result of the flooding problems.
By the time the island cleared then it was approaching the Christmas Holiday and New Years. I was able to squeeze in one model shooting. Then my camera broke.
Breaking a high end camera in Brazil is not a good thing to happen. Actually it is a Canon 40D and in the states then this camera is $800 but here you cant even find a store that carries it.
So I had to order a replacement from the States. The Canon 40D arrived here yesterday and I am now getting ready to start up shooting again – woohoo!.
I expect to shoot about 20 models in the next two months. I will be posting sample pics to the main website. I hope you enjoy and also let me know if any particular photo is your favorite.
Tchau from Floripa
Jennifer Hayes & Jeremiah Thompson,
the photography was very excellent. I am currently just about finished
my tour in Iraq however; the shipment of calendars are being passed off
to the Company Commanders to hand out to Soldiers. I am going to try to
have a/or picture(s) taken of the calendars with a Soldier or couple of
Soldiers if possible to send to your organization as a small token of

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Amateur Photographer Donates Portion of Calendar Sales to Wounded Warrior Project
“Girls of Brazil 2009 Swimsuit Calendar” profits to help support and empower injured service men and women
MISSOULA, Mont., Sept. 10, 2008 — Within the next two weeks, thousands of soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan will receive an out-of-the-ordinary gift: their own personal copy of the “Girls of Brazil 2009 Swimsuit Calendar” (http://www.girlsofbrazilcalendar.com). The calendar’s photographer and creator, Jeremiah Thompson of Missoula, Mont., has put aside 5,000 free copies for the soldiers serving overseas. What’s more, Thompson is donating a portion of every calendar sold to the Wounded War Project (http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org), an organization that strives to support and empower injured service men and women.
“We are currently collecting soldiers’ addresses, and the calendars will go out within two weeks,” Thompson says. “We hope this gift brings a small bit of happiness to a monotonous and difficult place. When they look at my calendar, they won’t just see 15 breathtakingly beautiful women, but a reminder of my support for them as they serve in the line of duty.”
The “Girls of Brazil 2009 Swimsuit Calendar” was born out of a dream — Thompson’s desire to become a professional swimsuit photographer. When he traveled to Florianopolis, the capital city of the Santa Caterina State in Southern Brazil last year, he found himself shooting gorgeous Brazilian beach babes who loved to be photographed, even without compensation. Donating to the Wounded Warrior Program is Thompson’s way of “giving back.” The son of a retired Lt. Colonel, who served in the Army Corp of Engineers and several tours of duty in Korea and Germany, Thompson grew up in the United States military family. This upbringing fostered a deep respect for U.S. soldiers, their sense of honor and amazingly steadfast loyalty.
“I wanted to give some portion of my calendar sales to a worthy cause, and it was just natural for me to give back to the military based on my childhood experiences,” Thompson says. “I watched military men and women unselfishly give of themselves, and how their families supported and defended these soldiers alongside them. I can’t say enough about these people, and actions do speak louder than words, so that’s why I’m donating to the Wounded Warrior Project, contributing in a way that I can.”
Founded as a non-profit organization, The Wounded Warrior Project provides tangible support to service men and women, helping them heal both physically and mentally. It provides services and programs that directly assist the wounded and enable severely injured service members to aid each other. In additional, the Wounded Warrior Project raises awareness of and enlists public support for injured service members.
“The Wounded Warrior Project is effective because it gives these injured soldiers some hope,” Thompson says. “It inspires them to help themselves and each other, and this approach is vital to their lifelong success.”
