One of my photos is finally gracing the cover of a magazine. :D

A week or two ago, the editor of a Polish gun magazine entitled "Strzał" contacted me, to request permission to use one of my HK45 photos for the cover of their May 2009 issue. Of course, I gave them permission, and I was also glad that they made the effort to request permission, which tells a lot about their character. Anyway, they just posted the cover image:

Here is my original photo:

Of course, they used the high-resolution (3000-pixel) version of the photo, not the 1000-pixel version shown above.

They are sending to me two copies of this issue as a token of their appreciation. I will need to open a bottle of wine when I get home... But then again, that's no different than any other day. ;)

that's cool. I had one of my buggies in Sand Sport magazine once (not on the cover though). But it's pretty cool to be able to tell your friends you've been published! Rock on! :thumbsup:

That is so cool. The cover!! Blade Magazine once published some pictures I took of knife maker Gary Hicks and Mr. Conrad Ben Baker together. We can thank Mr. Baker for the real CIA,SOG and SOG Dive knife.

Congratulations, Ken! Too bad they didn't offer some Zlotys for the use of the picture though. :D
