As previously described, my brother Chris had his photo on the cover of the January issue of Popular Photography, as part of their annual photo contest . If you remember, the magazine actually prints two covers, one for the newsstands and the other for subscribers. His cover photo appeared on the subscriber’s issue. At the time, Chris had asked me to put a call out to see if anyone I knew had a subscription to this magazine, with the hope that I could beg, borrow or steal a copy. My search turned up empty, but Chris was able to get an issue for himself, by subscribing. That was in early December. Come Christmas, and what do I find under the tree for me? A gift from Joanie, she bought a copy of the magazine on e-Bay. I would have never thought of doing that. I counted and his picture shows up not once, not twice, but five times in the magazine. There is the cover photograph, of course and the photo is also printed in the contest article, without all of the writing, where it is featured as the Landscape/Nature winner. It is also included in a mosaic of select contest winners that appears first in the table of contents and then again on the contest article’s title page. The fifth time that it appears is in a review of an Epson printer. It is the sample output. The editors must have really loved his picture!
way to go Chris!!!
