First Magazine Cover

I was going to add the Day 4 of the Cape Breton Experience here but while at the airport in St. John’s Newfoundland I saw the new Popular Photography Magazine had just been released. I had to pick it up as I had heard that my photo was going to be in there.

On the cover of Popular Photography November 2010

As I grab the magazine I quickly notice my image on the bottom of the front cover! My first magazine cover! Anyways, here it is. You have seen the photo before . . . my self portrait on my little planet. I posted the blog as an ad for a Workshop on how to create the image.

My Little Planet - Self Portrait

It is times like this when you realize your passion, hours of shooting and editing and lots of trials and errors are finally paying off and improving your work.

  1. Congratulations Francois on your first cover. It's an awesome image!

  2. Congrats on the cover and the article. I have played with the polar photos before but love your point of view from above. Can you tell me what you used for an extension on your tripod? How high did the camera end up? Thanks and congrats again.

    1. I used the Casey Enterprises Camera Pole Adapter. I reviewed the product here: Great product. They also make a standard Studio Light Pole Adapter now which I also use.


I value thoughtful comments and suggestions. If you like or dislike this post, please let me know. If you have any ideas or suggestion, comments or corrections (I do make mistakes) please also let me know. Thanks.
