I have subscribed to Outdoor Photographer many, many years – since my days as a beginning amateur. Back then I would devour every issue as I was so hungry to read and learn anything and everything about outdoor photography. I still subscribe today, now mainly to keep up with trends and friends – I am friends in one way or another with the authors of every major article in one recent issue.
So given this history, I must say I was very excited when they contacted us before my recent Antarctica trip looking for a high-res comp of an image for cover consideration. That would be cool! Days before leaving, they told us they would definitely use the image, if not for the cover as a Showcase image. I had my fingers crossed!
As you can see, it wasn’t selected for the cover, but it is still a nice honor to have been published in the Showcase section – so close!
