Surprisingly, I got a great news at a sleepy, exhausted night, mid of January 2012.
One of my photos, called
, will be published as a cover of the
!! This amazing magazine is renown among Nikon users world wide. Richard Liewellyn, Art Editor, told me that it would look great on the cover, and would be fantastic coverage with the magazine going internationally, both in print and digital.
Needless to say that, at midnight, I thought I was dreaming. Someone were trying to pull my legs in my birthday, 16 Jan. I couldn't sleep til the morning. Trying to identify the reality, I checked all related website of N-Photo Magazine to make sure that it really happened. Did a fake guy try to defraud me, or else's? Very confused as well as excited. If it was real, I would be very happy, I thought. Next week, Richard mailed me a commission with a Purchase order number on it (PO No.). It was real!!
In retrospect, it is a great honour to me, who is an amateur photographer, received from Richard and his magazine. In addition, another two photos of mine were also featured in its content--full image across the spread. It was the best gift I've ever received in my birthday : ))
Last but not least, this story is intentionally created to note my impressive memory as well as to inspire my friends who are also (serious - persistent) amateur photographer. Keep going, my friends. Preparing yourself for incoming luck and chance.
