It's not a really big deal but I got a Magazine Cover.
23

I've been shooting a bunch of promo shots and interior design for a client. And low & behold one of my shots was picked as the cover for a magazine promoting the area. It's not a big time thing but none the less, I felt happy all day since I found out last night. Better still it's part of a much larger marketing plan and I am going to get a lot of fun stuff to shoot.

It's been so much fun I can't express it completely.

Everyone here should get to work on a project like this, it really does light a fire under you creatively. Of course losing my bag of gear the day before Christmas was not fun...thankfully I did not notice it until after Christmas. But we're gonna replace it soon enough.

Here is the cover:

Here is the magazine:

They tightened up the crop a tad but otherwise didn't edit it at all.  I also shot the inset over the TOC on pg 4.  There are a few more of my shots in there as well.  I never think of people actually liking my photos, really I don't.

I can't share more right now until the selection process is done then I have some freedom to share a lot more.  It's the old NDA thing...but it's still FUN.

thanks so much for your thoughtful comment.  It is exciting for sure...and I'm glad you enjoyed me talking about it a bit.  You know how it is, only your photo pals "get it".  At least we can all have some fun with it.

As I get shots I can post that are interesting I'll share...since it's the good folks here who have always been helpful at keeping me playing at this.  And actually a lot of the shots I've shared recently here and on Flickr were shot during my trips to the area.

I was actually at a pretty low point motivation wise for a couple years almost, just did not want to put out the effort to go shoot...and out of nowhere this opportunity showed up and I feel so engaged again it's great.

I've got an interesting shoot on a loose plan with a former Miss Florida USA from the mid-70s to do a very artistic shoot.  I mean here is someone who modeled all over the planet for decades and shot with Guy Bourdin in his famous catalogs and Polaroid shoots, she was a fav of his, and she asked me to shoot her!!  I'm so looking forward to learning from all her experience as I've never done much with live models, well no dead ones either but that is a given I suppose.  But most of all it has been about having fun doing this again.

Re: It's not a really big deal but I got a Magazine Cover.

Great work brecklundin. Did they ask for particular images, or did you just send them stuff? I ask because I am interested in how the magaziine cover format requires different composition - I mean you need space at the tope of the image fr the magazine title etc. I read somewhere that stock photography requires this sort of thinking too.

More covers for you!

.... it IS a big deal. You're obviously very pleased with yourself and as "happy as a pig in mud" as they say - and so you should be.

That you don't need a Canon or a Nikon to get a front cover or even 36 million pixels as a few years ago I also got a front cover shooting with a istDs
