At last

Originally uploaded by argusmaniac.
At last, my anticipated photographic debut in a glossy, slick magazine. Traverse magazine used three of my photos for the article on Hine's Emerald dragonfly. That was cool. I never expected the article to include a fair amount about me, so that was a pleasant surprise. I was at Barnes & Noble yesterday to get the copy hot off the newsstand, and told the clerk how excited I was to see my photos in the magazine. She agreed, but probably thought I was pulling her leg.

Traverse is one of those magazines where it would be a delight to be a staff photographer. Really upscale articles mixed with touristy stuff and beautiful homes, etc. I'm pleased with the article they did on Hine's Emerald, and hopefully it will boost public awareness of the endangered species in Michigan.

Congratulations, Mark! I'm an occasional Traverse reader and I think it's quite the coup to have one's photos published in that magazine. It's very upscale. Sort of like Condé Nast's Traveler. I'm going to have to make sure I get a copy!

Thanks. I am pretty tickled by the issue, and the article is well-written. Now there is a magazine to work for -- CN Traveler!
