"Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.”

-William Shakespeare

Basking in the glory of finally getting recognised for your hard efforts and photographic skill is pretty awesome and at the start of this week I took the opportunity to enjoy georgewjohnson's after he got published in a UK Photography Magazine. It's really nice when something like that happens and the knowledge that across the country - and because of deviantART and other networks - across the world, people are looking at your work. And if you're me, smiling! I once stumbled across lauren-rabbit's work in Black and White Photography Magazine and was truly proud that somebody I had found here on deviantART was here in my mag! So have you been published? Has your work received any recognition that makes you proud? What are your tips to getting out there and having your work showcased? Congratulations georgewjohnson!

Photography Books

Whilst seeing the light by Clyde Butcher is quite pricey, I'm currently immersed in it after my parents brought me back a copy from the USA last year. Clyde is an inspiring photographer located literally in the Everglade Swamps of Florida. I'll be talking more about him and his work at a later time but if you do get the chance to read up on him, his techniques and so on - then do!
