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:

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 :-)
