A group of French firemen stripped off for a scorchingly hot new charity calendar to raise money for Pompiers Sans Frontieres, an organisation that provides humanitarian aid.
The photos were taken by French fashion photographer Fred Goudon, who spent a full year snapping the guys. "For me and for many others, firefighters are heroes. Every single day, these guys are out there saving people’s lives," Goudon told The Local. "And they’re all so nice, so strong… and you can see it in the pictures that there is a kind of pride in them that others don’t have."
