Image in use: “On His Honor” Book Cover

by on Jan.05, 2012, under Photography

Well look at that – I have one of my pictures on the cover of a Harlequin boddice-ripper! This is another use of my most popular “Hamilton Pool” image, the same one used on the telephone directory last year. Harlequin added the people in the foreground and cropped the image rather dramatically. By my reckoning, the models they used are about 3 feet tall but I guess they didn’t have much idea of the scale of those rocks in the foreground 🙂

Top 11 of 2011

by on Jan.05, 2012, under Photography

I was rather honoured this week to find that my top 11 images of 2011 were one of Younes Bounhar’s 20 top picks from the photographers on Google+ who submitted a link to their work.
The set linked to his post is basically the same as my “Best of 2011” set with the addition of 1 picture since I needed 11 shots for Google and had only picked 10 for my own post.

It’s great to find that people appreciate your work but even better when the person paying the compliment is a photographer whose work you already very much enjoy. Younes is an Ottawa-based travel and landscape photographer. You can find his portfolio here and his blog here. Both are definitely worth a look.

While I’m writing, I should apologise for the fact that this blog has been rather quiet lately. I’m still posting to my photoblog daily but time that I would otherwise spend working on a couple of tutorials I have planned for here has been diverted to organising two new workshops (one for beginners in late February and another HDR class in March) and setting things up for an exciting project that will be seeing the light of day some time at the end of this month. Once these are done, I promise I’ll give this site a bit more attention than it has had for the last few months!
