In the midst of the pandemic, Karen Banfield chose to focus on all the good surrounding her.
Her focus shifted into the creation of the Good Guys Calendar, which highlights twelve different men who showed a "generosity of spirit and open hearts."
Banfield told Good News Network: "I focused on men because the news has been full of negative role models, and I believe having positive role models is essential."
Banfield photographed the twelve men selected for the calendar in their natural environments and interviewed them, highlighting their stories in a way that "conveyed their motivation for bringing kindness and goodwill into the world."
"These men, from diverse backgrounds, have touched many lives in small, often unnoticed, ways with compassion that made me smile—and just as often brought me to tears," she said.
