    A while back I mentioned that I had photographed Ronald McDonald with Kevin Hanson of the Motor City Mechanic hockey team for a billboard and other promotional items.
    Well Saturday night I finally got a chance to see 1 of them (I think there are 3 of them total), so I set up a tripod and snapped off a couple shots of it.

    So it might not be Star magazine cover like Jonathan got, but still it is pretty cool to me. :cool: 
    (I just wish it had paid even 10% to what Jonathan earned for his shot :biggrin:

    This is the post on the shoot.

  2. I'll bet that is really cool to drive down the street and see one of your pictures staring back at you from a billboard. congratulations for sure.
  3. Congratulations Dave. I think it is a high honor to have your picture on a billboard so don't sell yourself short because it is not the Star magazine. This could lead that way where your pics will one day be in a magazine.

    Well I don't know about motor sports magazines since I don't really photograph any motor sports... :biggrin:
    I have had some other "Hockey" photos published in the last year too in small magazines, but my guess is that more people have seen this than those magazines since it is on a very highly traveled road.
    Thanks Melissa for looking.

    I mentioned that I had some other hockey photos published in a magazine, this is link to the online version

    I just wish they would pay me the money they own me for the 2 pictures they used.
