I got a cover shot!

  1. Okay, this isn't exactly National Geographic magazine, or even The Star, but...its a cover, and its being published by the Federal Government (US Fish and Wildlife Service), so I'm pretty psyched. They approached me to use some of my photos in some of their literature and since its not-for-profit and for a good cause I gave permission. I figure it is my way of "volunteering" and giving back for environmental causes.

    And it was taken with the "old" D100 ;-)

    (BTW they gave me permission to post this on my site.)

    I am usually very modest as you all know but, I think this looks pretty WOW! Now if only I could find someone that would actually pay, LOL.

    Wonderful shot, Janet

    Congratulations!
     
  7. Congratulations. This is a nice shot. You should be happy. I know I would be. Making money in nature and wildlife photography is tough, perhaps tougher than ever with the proliferation of digital cameras and good photographers. We all probably need to be more creative and aggressive in finding ways to make photos pay. My experience in doing free photography is that it generally leads only to more opportunities to do free photography. I bet Fish and Wildlife has to pay for buildings, vehicles, supplies etc. I would at least try to use this as leverage to get special privilege to photograph some interesting critter or place that your Fish and Wildlife contact could help you with. Building relationships with the right people can be worth more than money down the road. Keep up the good work. This could be a stepping stone to bigger and better things.

    Congrats again,
     
  8. I think you should be very proud... it's a charming image and perfect to wrap around a book cover.

    Well Done!

    That's terrific, and the Horseshoe Crab brings back memories of Long Beach and Jones Beach (not to mention Coney Island Beach)....

    Hi Janet,

    Please accept my sincerest congratulations, I am so happy for you. Nope, it isn't National Geographics, Time Magazine or Cosmo...but it's your image on the cover of something that is published and delivered to readers across our nation...and that is pretty darned outstanding. I hope that this is only the start of more great things to happen for you and our other members who submit their work for possible publishing. Great shooting, Janet.
     
  19. Janet, I am so happy for you. The shot is beautiful and you should be justly proud. Way to go.
