Well needless to say my first visit to the city of sin was pretty good. I got a lot of great photos of Hoover Dam, but not much of Vegas proper since I was busy having fun. Since the phrase What Happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas means a lot to all the parties involved this weekend I’ll leave out the weekend recap, but there was one pleasant little surprise for me when I arrived. Friday morning I woke up to my first Vegas hangover and an email from the Downtown Sacramento Partnership.
About a month ago I heard via twitter that the Downtown Sacramento Partnership was looking for photos of downtown Sacramento for a calendar they would be putting out for 2011, and naturally I submitted a couple photos because lets face it, Sacramento is charming and I love to photograph it. I was excited but cautious when I submitted the photos and when I didn’t hear back for a couple weeks I just let it go and moved on with my life. Well it turns out they would like to use one of my photos- one which is actually one of my favorites… do you know what this means???
People other than my own friends & family are going to see my work.
I’m going to be published.
I know its kind of small-time league because lets face it Sacramento gets overlooked constantly, but at least tourists will see this!!! Any exposure is good exposure, and I’m really excited I get to be part of this calendar. I’m glad people are going to get to see how beautiful my town is and how I see it through my lens.
Anyway I’m actually on my way out the door as I post this to go reprint the photo from a negative and get it scanned in hi-res quality so I can send it right over to the Downtown Sacramento Partnership. I’ll of course keep everyone updated on when and where they can get this calendar, because I know my personal cheerleaders (mom, sister, Liz) are going to want copies of this bad boy.
I just wanted to share my exciting news with all 5 of my readers. ;)
