BLOKES at the Maroochydore Men's Shed were proud to unveil their first professional calender last Tuesday, featuring pictures taken by their very own photography group.
Michael Ballinger, who has been learning the basics of photography along with a handful of his peers at the shed, said he was pleased with the end result.
"I was really pleased with some of the ideas that came out of the guys,” he said.
"For me, the best thing was to see them come together and working as a team on the project.
"Quite a lot of time and effort went into the photos, and we all believed it came out exceptionally well.”
The Maroochy shed, which sees about 70 members regularly congregate within its walls, has recently been involved in making toy-storage boxes for nearby kindergartens and constructing new scarecrows for the Alex Headland community garden, but this is their first calender.
Secretary Terry Welch said being able to work on such projects boosted the men's self-esteem and self-worth.
"A lot of men come here suffering depression, but these things really do help,” he said.
