My picture was published in The New Yorker magazine

Some months ago I was contacted by an employee at a magazine called The New Yorker. They had found one of my pictures on the world wide web and wanted to use it in collage that were to illustrate a fictional story. The picture they found was of some clouds hugging a mountain. I didn’t think the picture was my best, but it probably was perfect for the artist at The New Yorker.
It is very nice to get recognized like this and of course get paid for your work. It makes it worthwhile to get out and take more pictures of all the beauty around us.

Here is the picture The New Yorker used:

Now the story is published in The New Yorker and if you want to check out the story and collage with my picture check out this link.
You can see my other photographs of mountains here.

    The New Yorker is a very prominent magazine. I dont read it much, but it certainly catches the eye of real artist types. You may be getting more calls in the future

  6. Bravo, Thomas! That is really excellent news. The New Yorker is a prominent, well-respected magazine, and a very worthy place for your work to be published (in whatever form). Given the quality of your work, this is probably just the first of many top publications that you will be able to include on your c.v. over time. I’m really proud of you.

  7. That is so great! Congrats! I am not surprised though. Your photos are marvelous and it just goes to show they have good taste at the New Yorker. πŸ™‚

  8. Seems like it depends much on what they are gonna use it for.

    I was actually contacted last week by a small Norwegian magazine that might want to use one of my shots on the front page of their next issue. They were using standard freelance prices and that meant about $400 for that shot too. Hope I get more deals like that πŸ™‚

  9. I’m just new to your blog, so, this is belated congratulations for having your photo published in one of the prestigious magazines. You great photos deserve recognition like that.
