It all started when I posted a couple of my landscape photos onto DLSR Magazine’s Facebook page for their Weekend Warrior feature they run every week. The editor Matty Graham then responded to my photos asking if I would email him a small portfolio. It then snowballed from there. He was interested in publishing a couple of my photos as a small reader feature which I said yes and was flattered. He gave me a call and I had a 20 min phone interview and then said he would send me a rough proof.
A couple of weeks later I get a proof with 5 of my images in a 6 page spread article and now I was featured in their Reader Hero section. Wow – they were impressed with my portfolio enough that they dropped the small feature and went with the Reader Hero feature! He called me to take about each image and how I shot it etc which got added to the last page. After reading the article I was both embarrassed and flattered if that is possible at the same time?
