First Published Image

Back in December of 2008 I was contacted by one of the staff at Hambly and Woolley Inc. She was the project coordinator for a publication for Tourism Toronto called Toronto Magazine. She had found one of my pictures from the Beaches Jazz Festival and wanted to use it for a section of the magazine on the Queen St. Streetcar line. At the time the hired photojournalist, Simon Hayter, had started working on the photo essay (I'm assuming late fall), the Beaches Jazz Festival had already passed so they wanted to use my picture to fill that void. Needless to say I was pretty excited about being published for the first time. It's not the front cover but you gotta start somewhere, right?

I picked up the magazine last Friday from the offices of Hambly and Woolley Inc. You'll probably find this magazine at an information centre or some other tourism related office and it's also being distributed overseas by Tourism Toronto.

Here's the front cover of the magazine:
