In the midst of all this craziness with my busy holiday schedule, a few weeks ago I received the news that one of my images will be published in this months issue of Professional Photographer magazine as a result of a cover contest I entered earlier in the year. While I did not make the cover, I did however receive one of the 18 Honorable Mentions.
I am not only “honored” to have been selected amongst the 50,000 entries, I am delighted that the image which was chosen out of my five submissions is none other than my very favorite portrait of my daughters. The girls are excited that they will be in a “magazine” and are already talking about taking it to school for show & tell, too funny.
Some of my personal friends and family know this image all too well, it is one of the first things you see when you enter my home; last year I ordered it as a 30×40 canvas…it makes me smile.
I am looking out for the mail-lady for my copy of this months issue. To read the article regarding the cover contest click on the following link: http://www.ppmag.com/current_issue/pdfs/0811/0811_covercontest_web.pdf .
