One of our club committee members has struck up a good relationship with our local weekly paper, The Bury Free Press. They quite often do features on our photographs and what we are up to, it all helps keep up the profile of the club.
This Friday they featured a selection from our recent portrait competition and chose to use one of my self portraits as the front cover of the Culture section, which meant it also featured on the front page of the paper. Fame at last!
It didn't print too bad for newspaper.

Ah, congratulations. Well deserved. It would make a great, large format poster :p

I have to ask if you got your inspiration from Edvard Munch ?

Better self portrait than your avatar

Good work and congrats on the publication! Now, that Avatar is indeed a work of art .... I think it would be very hard to replicate

The straight answer, no.
If you Google Gregory Heisler 50 portraits, the front cover will give you the answer I think. It is a great and inspirational book, well it inspired me. The inspiration for me glancing at the fruit fly was a dog portrait by a fellow club member whose photo depicted the dog looking at a Butterfly. The different bits and pieces we pick up over time.

Super piece of success! I recall that image when you first put it on here. I recall it was also a winner then?
