I met Iowa photographer, Ty Smedes, last year while volunteering at Hitchcock Nature Center in Honey Creek, Iowa. I woke up to an email from him today telling me that he received his copy of next month's Iowan Magazine. He said he saw my image in it and told me congratulations. Very excited to hear that from a photographer I look up to.
Some of you might have read my blog post about it last month. The Iowan had asked to use on of my images of the Merry Brook schoolhouse (located in Woodbine, Iowa). After Ty had told me he received his issue of the magazine, I went and checked my mail box and saw that The Iowan had sent me an issue as well.
When I had started photography, one of my goals was to be published in a magazine. I hope to continue having images published for everyone to see. There's nothing I love more than sharing my work.
