Some time ago I had -another one of those- issues with a magazine that I had ordered but never got…
Maybe you remember

Photo Paper

Seriously… I would still be interested in getting the magazine, and that’s why (for some reason, yeah, I know…) I keep on visiting back to that website. But I keep on getting -more and more- this icky feeling that there’s something dodgy going on with this whole thing.
I checked it out again today, to see what was going on, and now the first issue is supposed to be published in August 2011.
That’s over a year later than the initial publication date of the first issue. Now is that weird or not?
I doubt if they’ll even make it to publishing the thing in August 2011.
Heck… I doubt if they’ll even publish the thing AT ALL!! And I wonder if I’m the only one who was impatient enough to claim a refund, which, by the way, I actually did get. So no complaints from me there 😉

A week and a half or so ago I was contacted by UK new agency Caters News with the request to give them some background information on one of my images, because they wanted to do a story on it. If you’ve been reading this blog, you may recognize the picture:

Siberian tiger leaping out of the water of a shallow pond

D200, ISO100, 1/1000 sec @ f/2.8, Nikkor 70-200mm

I of course happily obliged and I got to read the copy and with some changes (I did really tell them that tigers love water, but they haven’t changed the header of the article) I okay-ed it. A day or so later I got a mail from the contact person saying that probably it would take a week or maybe still a few before it was published on their website, because there was still another article running involving tiger(s). No problem for me.
It was a nice surprise to find a Google alert on my name (yeah, I have those) in the Daily Mail. It appeared that the agency had offered the article to several news papers and the Daily Mail was the first one to take it on. You can read all about it here!

I’ve got some stuff published before, but never this prominent in such a big paper, so I was quite excited.
You can imagine my increase in excitement when, that same evening, I got a mail from the Times, that they were also interested in doing a piece with the picture.
And you can imagine my excitement went sky-high, when the next day I got a mail from the agency telling me that the images were also published in the printed editions of – next to the Times – the Telegraph, the Mirror, and the Record.

Good stuff going on!
So jumping on the band-wagon, you can now order your own canvas print for on your wall.
