I was told by a photographer buddy of mine as I was preparing my first submission to Tahoe Quarterly magazine to not be surprised when my images are rejected, that it takes many submission to finally be recognized. I received a call a couple days later that they wanted to use a couple images for their next printing. I kept the good news quiet and when the magazine came out I received a phone call from my friend congratulating me and asking for advice.
