I subscribe to Australian Photography Magazine, and the first volume for next year arrived today in the mail. Imagine my delight when I opened it up and saw this:-
I submitted this photo of Maggie to the magazine a couple of months ago, as an entry into their monthly competition – I did not win anything, but it is the first time a photo of mine has made it into print and I’m rather chuffed to say the least!
Thanks to those of you who continue to say good things about my shots, and for suggesting I should try and sell them online. I had never thought of this, but have now followed up by doing a bit of research into those companies that sell stock photos, and how one can submit your images for sale. I’m not convinced that one might make much money from the sort of pictures I take, but I think I might give it a go…..watch this space!
PS – A few days after this post, I received a phone call from the Publishers, to advise me that they would give me a six month extension on my subscription for the publication. How good is that??
