During past workshops I've talked about getting your work out there. Last summer we even added a panel discussion on getting published, with help from Resource Magazine's Aurelie Jezequel and Adam Sherwin. How many times have you looked at an image in a magazine or on the cover and said to yourself, "I could have done that!" Well, here's the difference, you didn't submit your work to the magazine. You didn't network with the editorial staff. You chose to watch the parade go by, when you should have been in it!
Well, a big congrats to Scott - he just got the cover shot of a national issue of Sports Illustrated, with work that most photographers couldn't have done. Plus, he got the cover last year of the regional issue. Like I said once before, the only thing that would make me prouder is if it was my shot! LOL
Way to go buddy!
