p.1 #1 · Good day for me


Hey, folks, been away for quite a while, but I wanted to share a nice little surprise I got this morning. Received an email from a buddy and fellow photographer that an image of mine taken during a game this past New Year's Day made the cover of 1 of 4 regional Sports Illustrated magazines.

Below is the original then the cover. As you can see, the original is just a "meh" capture, with a busy background, and I cut off part of his foot. Just goes to show ya that you never know……

Edit: the text in my original post got hosed up and I had to fix it…FM used to allow for quick edits - not anymore, apparently.

That's great, Dennis!

They did a nice job with the cutout and color correction for the cover... the drop shadow and the slight gradient looks good.

Congrats! Not sure about USPW, but I wish there was a better way for agencies to track what gets used. Getty does a pretty good job, but only on the contributor stuff.

Sweet Dennis! It is interesting sometimes which shot makes someone happy. Does look good the way they prepped it though!

Thanks, guys. Michael, it's a little odd. For online sales, I can see downloads on a daily, almost real-time basis. Print sales are more of a challenge. We get an itemized listing that shows where and when an image was used, along with how much I got paid for it, but this comes out quarterly and is often several months after the shot was published. I had a photo of RGIII on the cover of the USA Today Sports Weekly a couple months ago, and had another shooter not seen it and told me, I would have probably never known. In any event, though, the money still works.

Nice Dennis! Although the USA Today cover looks really washed out, hope thats not the actual print copy!

Geoff, I agree. This is a screen capture from the online USA SW web site. Might look for it tomorrow to see.

Dennis,
Nice work as always. And to think we all worry when a limb is cut off in our original shots. :-))

You should have shot it a little tighter. (first shot) All that extra space at the top and bottom doesn't add anything to the shot.

Nah, I'm just messin' with ya...That is possibly the tightest shot I have ever seen.

Any way, good for you and it's good to see you are still kicking.

Marty
