This is always an area of excitement and nerves and I will not confess to how long my first published photo in Practical Photography remained unopened on the coffee table before I dared to open it! It’s a fantastic feeling when your work is accepted by a group of experts in their field and to receive such great comments on my first ever submission was brilliant. Since then I have been lucky enough to see other images published in a variety of other magazines including Digital Photo, Digital SLR Photography, Amateur Photographer and Digital Camera.
The Elephant Texture was nearly cut from my contact sheet sent to Practical Photography as I didn’t think it made the grade. I am my own worst critic – share your work and passion as you never know where it will lead and its a great confidence boost.
