I submitted my haboob picture (“Skylines”, May 20 2010; ranked 112th with 5 votes) to the local paper and they printed it–in a 2″ x 1.5″ thumbnail in the ‘Your Weather’ spot on the back page of the local section.
But I’m still happy about it. It’s a first for me.
I’d be interested in knowing if other farktographers are published (I can’t imagine someone like U-man or Soosh not making some money on the side with their awesome shots).
I’ve had one photo in Discover magazine, one in a magazine from New York, an album cover in the UK, and a few breaking news things in the local paper. My local paper doesn’t pay, either, or I would submit a lot more.
Congrats on getting in the paper even if its a freebie.
The closest I can claim to being published is My friends got married last December and I took all the photos for them including the picture in the paper announcing their wedding. I apparently got a lot of compliments on that picture from family members of the bride. The grooms family only had one or two members that showed up for it and I don’t think they really payed much attention to the paper.
Very nice, congrats ravnostic! I’ve had a couple of photos published in the local alt weekly, one of which made the cover–very thrilling to see your stuff in print, eh?
Indeed. Even if it’s only 240×150 pixels. Or so. This is my third publication; first was a computer program in 1984, then a short story in 2004(ish). I never thought a photo would make it, though. I submitted the dragonfly w/cameo spider to the Nat’l Geo photography contest. Won’t win, of course, there’re ‘real’ photographers entering. But I’m still proud of that shot. Some of yout’s ought to enter; you all have a serious chance there (there are some really excellent shots, but I’ve seen as good in farktography.)
