here's a little follow up to an old thread of mine about an assignment i had to shoot an event at a cooking school...

a while back, i invoiced the editor for the shoot. upon receipt, he called me and told me he was going to have to hold off paying me...

because, well, the invoice was NOT enough. he explained to me that they pay more for photos used on the COVER!

so i told him to just tear it up and let me know how much to bill him and when.

i just got my copy of the mag! yee haa!! it's a shame that they didn't include the photos on the website, because they look absolutely killer, both on the cover and inside (where they used four of them). here's a link to the on-line article, with an itty-bitty jpg of the cover:

here's the original gallery i gave them to choose from:

this is the cover photo

Man, Skip! You get "nice little surprises" the way most of us (well me anyway) get stopped at traffic lights! (Which is to say, as a routine occurance in case anyone wonders). Congrats on the cover AND the paycheck. Oh, and by the way, IMO it's all talent and drive mascarading as luck :o) Way to go!
