My First Photo In The Paper!

My photo of Gregor and The Martians in the paper

Was reading the local newspaper this afternoon, and stumbled upon a photo that looked familiar…a shot I had taken of local cornwall band, Gregor and The Martians! Needless to say, I was pretty thrilled to see one of my photos in print. Yes, it’s pretty tiny (it’s top-right, above); yes, it’s a local newspaper (the ‘West Briton’, found in Cornwall); and no, I didn’t get paid.

But it’s my photo. In the paper! Yay!

By the way, the photo they used is this one:

  1. Well done. Photo credit would be nice or your watermark left on(first and only time my watermark was cropped out…)
    Keep it up.

  2. Cheers! A credit would’ve been nice, but still so happy it got published anyway!

    How did they get it? :)
    Great shot btw!

  4. Thanks :) I gave the disc of images to the band, they then let a journalist have a shot for the piece.
