I'm so pumped! Got published...

  1. Well, not exactly published, but for lack of better words, I guess that's what you'd call it! Got a note from an advertising firm a couple of weeks ago. They said they were working on two new kiosks and a brochure for the new Fisherman's Wharf and trail at Conowingo Dam and would like to know if they could use some of my eagle pics. They sent me a PDF of the layouts and bingo - the check came today! I think this is so cool. There will be two enclosures built that will house the kiosks. So I guess it's like being "publicly published"! :biggrin: Anyway, they chose two eagle shots. The image below is the kiosk for the trail which is across the river from the parking lot where we photograph the eagles from. The new Fisherman's Wharf is going to be adjacent to the employee parking lot, up close to the dam. This image shows one of the eagle shots. The other is a head shot. Both images are used in the Fisherman's Wharf kiosk and brochure, with just the one eagle shot being used in the kiosk for the trail. Fellow Cafe Member Nikographer is having some of his images published on these kiosks and brochure as well! I asked the guy how he found my images and he said he just Googled Conowingo Eagles, found a bunch of websites and chose my photographs. Cool!

    Anyway, I'm pumped! :biggrin: Here is the one kiosk (complete with typo's, etc.)

    That definitely counts Jim. Congrats. Did they say when the kiosk is going to be built? I wonder if that will be a good spot for photographing eagles compared to the parking lot.
