The French String Continues

January 20th, 2009

D20 4450 The French String Continues Thanks to my friend, Chris at Univers d’Artistes I’ve learned that once again I have a photo in the Jan/Feb issue of French PHOTO magazine. I’ve had a real run of good luck with that magazine, which some consider to be the best general circulation photo magazine in the world. I first sent photos to their annual contest, the largest photo contest in the world, in 2002. One of my photos was chosen for the Jan/Feb 2003 issue. I’ve had a photo in every Jan/Feb issue of the magazine since that year. One year they ran another of my photos in the following issue.

This year the photo they chose is the one above of Brooke Lynne taken in a frigid mountain stream near Rocky Mountain National Park. Thank you Brooke.

Why I’ve had such good luck with French PHOTO is a mystery to me. I don’t have any special insight to the magazine. I don’t know who the judges are or what they are looking for. I don’t shoot with the magazine in mind. I don’t speak French. I can’t even pronounce most French words. I’ve never been to France, though I’ve traveled through most of the other Western European countries. I just pick my favorite photos of the past year and send them in before the contest deadline. Every time I’ve sent in photos at least one of them has ended up being printed in the magazine.

Of course I’m pleased, happy and proud to be included in such a quality publication. Maybe I’ll try again next year if I’m still shooting this kind of work.
