I'm currently back in a very cold and wintery U.K., but something that warmed my spirits today was when I came across my first published photography work in print at a bookstore when looking for Christmas gifts.
The photo was for the recent re-release of the Titanic movie snapped along L.A.'s infamous Sunset Strip, which was used to illustrate a font style called 'Trajan' by Carol Twombly.
It's always exciting to see anything of yours published in print and even though I had very little to do with the production of this book aside from proving a photo, I still felt great pride buying a copy at the sales counter.
My Daily Billboard blog is going from strength to strength visitor wise, and I've also had other images printed in trade and business publications, plus I have it on good authority that my work is being used in big studio and agency presentations, so let's hope this trend continues.
In fact the entire book series collection from the Design Museum is really quite fascinating, with everything from 'Fifty Shoes That Changed The World', Fifty Cars, Fifty Dressses and more (you get the idea).
I've often toyed with creating my own book full of billboard images, so you never know what the future will hold...
