My First Photos in Print!

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 6 March 2009 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

I saw two of my photos appear in magazines recently...the one at the top, Southport Pier, was published in 'Restoration' magazine and the B&W one of L'Institut du Monde Arabe' appeared in last weeks 'Building' magazine.

It's quite a strange feeling seeing your own photos in print.

Thanks Beth and Astrid!

These are the two photos by the way:


I've decided to have another go at the 'Cool Photoblogs' annual competition this year so I'd appreciate a vote from any of you who like my blog and who feel up to going through the registration process:

FUJIFILM FinePix F31fd 1/180 second F/2.8 ISO 200 8 mm

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

For purchasing high quality archival prints of any of these photos you can send me an email by clicking here or by going to my website Ian Bramham - Fine Art Photography where prices are listed in the gallery sections under each individual photo.

613photo from Dallas, United States

Great job. Both are excellent photographs. The one on the bottom was published on your blog not too long ago if I remember right. I used do some stuff for an ad agency so at one time I was pretty used to seeing my stuff in print, but not in this way. I remember the first time I saw mine I was like "how f'n awful is this?". It's great that you got photos you WANTED to take published. That must be an entirely different feeling. Great job.

6 Mar 2009 12:47pm

@613photo: Thanks!....yes it's great that they were both photos that I'd taken for myself (not that there are many of the other variety :-)

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

Wow, if a guy like you has only two photos in print with your body of work, what chance do the rest of us have? Congratulations.

6 Mar 2009 3:06pm

@Twelvebit: Thanks!....If someone had told me 18 months or so ago when I started this blog that I would eventually see some of my photos in print i wouldn't have believed them so it's a great feeling :-)
