Photo credits

I've had a couple of photos published recently, and just want to brag a little here. One of them is running related, at least...

I took a bunch of pictures, as I always do at races, at the Silver State 50/50 half marathon. After the race, I was contacted by the RD, who wanted to see if I would share any of them with Ultrarunning Magazine, who were doing a short article on the race. He put me in contact with their Editor, I sent them some photos, and I kind of forgot about it. Just the other day, I was in a running store and picked up their August issue. Sure enough, next to the story on Silver State 50/50 was a crop of my picture, and I had a little photo credit in the masthead...



There's a great blog I read titled The "blog" of "unnecessary" quotation marks. I've submitted a couple things to them, but the last thing I sent in didn't get posted to the site. After a few weeks, though, I got an email asking for permission to use the photo in their upcoming book. I said sure, and again, kind of forgot about it. In a bookstore the other day, I remembered to take a look for the book, and there was my picture:



So, two photo credits (that I found out about) in the same week. New career path? Probably not...

That's awesome. Those are cool pics. Good tip on the non-running blog; I love unnecessary quotations!
