The magazine! (finally!)

I've been trying for a few weeks to get my hands on a copy of the magazine I did the photoshoot for in December and I was finally sucessful today!

For those of you who are just joining us and weren't around for my December freak out, here's a quick recap. I got a call from a car audio magazine in December and they wanted to hire me to shoot the cover story on a car audio business in Boise. I've never done a magazine before, so it was a HUGE big deal for me. It was a little out of my comfort zone, but somehow I managed to get through it. I turned the photos into them around the middle of December and then I waited and waited for the February issue to come out!

When I got the job the guy from the magazine said that he'd send me a copy when it came out, but he never did and he didn't return my e-mail when I asked for a copy. So today I happened to be driving past the place I photographed so I stopped in to ask them if they had a copy. They had 13 copies! I finally got to look through it and I'm SO relieved to say that it turned out great! They seemed really happy with how they turned out as well, which was really good to hear. I actually saw a couple of the photos on the magazines website and I wasn't super happy with how they looked so I was really afraid to see the actual magazine for fear that I wasn't going to be happy with it. The magazine looks a lot better than the small internet photos though, thank goodness, so I was pleasantly surprised.

They let me keep one of their magazines so I've scanned all the pages to share. I actually hesitate to share it though, because we have a crappy scanner and the scans aren't good. The scanned pages look kind of washed out and blah, which is not how the actual magazine looks. But I really want to share them, so you'll just have to take my word for the fact that the actual magazine looks a lot better than that scans!!
