Denesa creates each photograph with reverence and respect for our Earth from a deeply embodied state of connection using solar-powered equipment. When you order your calendar, you're supporting your wellbeing for a year AND supporting our planet. 



We give 50% our profits to our Earth in celebration of her majesty so that she may continue to inspire our depths for generations to come.


It’s hugely important to the entire team that our work has a positive impact on our planet, from being carbon-neutral to planting trees with each calendar, to supporting targeted, meaningful environmental projects that help the ecosystem or species in each image. 

Draw nature inside this year with a calendar that celebrates our Earth's majesty.

We have the power to fill our days with vibrancy, majesty, awe and wonder.

We choose what we marinate in.

We choose how we see the world.

We choose how we give back.

Heidi Rhodes, Actor, Director, Interior Designer

Denesa's work keeps drawing me in, and it hasn’t stopped. My imagination just goes and goes and goes on what I’m seeing. It keeps creating different layers of questions, considerations. The light is continually alive. And those are to me, some of the hallmarks of real art. You live with it, and it keeps living with you. It keeps growing and changing with you.

Anna Yosin, Actress, Stunt Woman, Producer

Denesa Chan has an uncanny gift of capturing the most exquisite natural truths. That, coupled with her passionate heart, that is uniquely open and capable of perceiving deep hidden beauty, creates perfect blend of profoundly majestic photographs. Her photography invites us to see life through a magical lens of expansive clarity. Denesa has journeyed into the depths of the wilderness to unveil occult treasures and capture the energy of them so that we all may experience touch of heightened, more colorful and mystical reality. There is a saying that no camera can ever capture the full beauty of a sunset, but Denesa comes pretty damn close, because her most important ingredient is love indeed.

Not many artists can transport you to deep, emotional places. Not many people care about our world and everyone in it to such a degree that they focus all their insane amount of talent into championing the environment for its own sake and in doing so inspires everyone around them. Not many can do and be all these things and more, but Denesa can... and she does!
