I got published in Popular Photographer Magazine!

One of my classic images was selected for publishing in the pages of international photography magazine Popular Photography (November 2012 issue).  Although I  have been published thousands of times, it is always great to be published in magazines outside the sport.  This time, the picture was accompanied by a short article resulting in 1/3 page coverage!  On a funny note, read how the article ends, it makes it sound like I stay in the plane and shoot from the door LOL what is up with that?  The whole thing is not quite skydiver oriented but, to me its no problem, working with people outside our sport is alway difficult in that manner, still, the overall effect is positive :) 

I have always been drawn to photography as a form of sharing the general beauty in this world with others through my pictures, sharing our sport is no different, so when a magazine outside our sport selects one of my images for publishing, I know it is not because of it's skydiving value but for it's artistic appeal to general audiences, to me that is a triumph in it's own.

I hope that through these efforts our sport gets more positive exposure to help it grow :)

Hello Mr Kent. I know you don't remember me. You were at Skydive Sebastian's Keys Boogie in 2006. I had been dating a skydiver, to be nameless haha, and was helping coordinate with the airport for the boogie. I had a terrible back with lower lumbar fusion. It was my dream to be able to jump just once. So Lyle Presse, Kazu aka Big Jap and Jason had thought the perfect jump would be out of the Cooper, landing on the beach at sunset after most everyone had landed. You had come over to help get me rigged up to have the least amount or no jarring if we pulled within seconds of jumping. It was one of the greatest days of my life. I had been at skydive Sebastian for a year helping with parties,beach jumps etc. So when coming in on the beach and seeing all the people with their cameras cheering me on, it made my heart full of love. Most of the regular jumpers at Sebastian knew what my story was. So they were so happy for me.
I've thought of you over the years, having only met you the one time. Sometimes guessing your first name until I finally came across your production page here and seeing the pics from Sebastian and others with people I know that visited Sebastian. I wanted to find you and say Thank you for keeping me safe and making that day in my top 5 of my life. May you always stay safe in the clouds doing what you love.
Jennifer Morgan, Sebastian
