Magazine Cover

About a month back, I had blogged about how a friend had asked me take a couple of pictures that he wanted to use in a magazine cover that he was designing. The magazine is now printed, and not only has the photograph been used, I have been given credit for taking the photograph.
To say that I am pleased, is a little bit of an understatement. I don't remember a time when I have not been taking pictures, and being 'commissioned' to take a photograph was the ultimate high for me. To see the photograph in use on a magazine cover, and me being acknowledged as its photographer is beyond my wildest expectations. As a photographer, I couldn't really ask for much more.

Thank you, Joris, for giving me the chance to do this.

Congratulations, that is a wonderful experience for a photographer. Your photo looks great.

No, Natash', thank YOU for taking up the idea and helping me out!! =)

Last week I came across a wall were they used your cover as a poster -- they're spreading the love ;)

Also, I think one of the niceties of being part of the History department is that they're doing everything to beat the principles of 'intellectual honesty' into you, which principally means crediting your sources ;)

@ Mason - thank you. And it is wonderful feeling.

@ Joris - anytime. I now love the idea of doing things on commission, so the next time you need anything you think I can pick up, shoot.
And it's fantastic about the cover being used as a poster. Do you think you can take a picture of that for my collection. I'm loving the idea of a photograph of mine being printed by someone apart from me.

This is great, Natasha! How fun to be in print in yet another medium and using another skill, eh? Wonderful!

Ann Elle Altman said...

Wow, that's awesome and it's a wonderful picture. You should get it framed! If you haven't already.

What a swell feeling that must be!

Faith Pray said...

That's great! You have such nice photos, it's not a surprise though!

@ Dipali/ Faith - thanks.

@ Tami - it does feel fantastic, specially since it is a medium I love, but which I never took too seriously

@ Ann - I haven't actually, but maybe I should

@ Jan - it is a fantastic feeling

Congratulations. I agree with Ann, that cover belongs in a frame. You do beautiful work.

Rayna M. Iyer said...

Thank you, Patricia. I think you are a fabulous photographer (anyone who can take pictures of flowers as pretty as the ones you do is amazing), so coming from you, it is especially precious.
