Ever since I was bitten with the photography bug, my dream and goal has been to get published in a book, magazine, newspaper, whatever medium it didn’t matter. This past spring a local shop in town called Downhome (the biggest promoter of Newfoundland art and photography) notified me that they were putting out a book within the next few months that was to represent Newfoundland through pictures. They had told me that they were considering using 2 of my images… well I was sooooooo excited and I couldn’t believe it. As the spring came and went and the summer faded to fall, I had completely forgotten about the book. I hadn’t heard anything more about the book or my images. It wasn’t unitl I was browsing through a local shop in town just before Christmas that I saw the book on shelves and immediatley I started flipping through the pages to see if just by chance my shots were there. The suspense was killing me. Well I got halfway through the book and then I saw it ON GUARD my first published image… what a thrill! I continued to look through the book and towards the end I saw another of my images CITY OF COLORS I was in awe and sooooo thrilled. I ran up to my wife and showed her, her excitement almost matched mine. It was such an awesome feeling. Days later the mail came and with it a parcel arrived… I opened it and to my delight the company had sent me a copy of the book.

It has been such a fantastic experience to have some of my works published. It is a tremendous honor that others find my work appealing. I find the support of the community on this site a real motivation and it really brings out the best in my work. So I thank all you Redbubblers that have stopped by and looked through my portfolio. Your comments are always welcome and your advice is much appreciated.
