Woohoo...my picture made the paper.

Well my aerial picture of the mis-spelling on our town's water tower made the local paper. Granted it is only a small paper for a town of 12,000 but hey....people in my community are getting familiar with seeing aerial shots of city stuff. This is the second aerial image I've had in the paper in the last 6 weeks.

Here's a pdf of the front page right from the Paper's site.

They have a 5 year anniversary of our towns devastating tornado coming later in the year and the editor had mentioned hiring me to duplicate stills that were taken right after the tornado. I'm hoping that comes through.

Great to have a good working relationship with your local press, just make sure you get paid. (Speaking from experience!)

Cheers

Andrew

Yea, our little Norwegian community got a good laugh out of it. If we can't laugh at ourselves life is no good. Was lots of fun but hey...I may as well take advantage of their screw up. I was talking with the freelance photog that took the other image from the ground. He gets $25 for every pic of his they use. He used to work for the newspaper so he knows how to make them pay. I am going to maybe get a few more for them and get them hooked then start charging a small fee like the $25. It won't be free much longer. They want me to do some aerial shots showing our town 5 years after a tornado ripped it up. I already quoted them a price for that. No way that half day of work will be free. I'm still in ramp up mode, get the word out mode but won't be much longer. I've already started one business that pays the bills so I know when the time is right.
