A magazine published four of my images. Now that's exciting!

Drapery & Design Professional magazine, a trade publication in the custom drapery industry did a feature story titled "Peek Inside a Workroom" about Diane Preston's business "Diane's Interior Creations" in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The publication, Volume 2010 Issue 2, included four photographs Diane submitted with her story and one of the images was used for the magazine cover. Who was Diane's photographer? Yours truly, Ambler Brown! Landing my first magazine cover is pretty cool!

Speaking of Diane, in addition to the magazine feature, she also won a major award. "2010 Window Fashion Vision" Ingenuity Workroom Competition - Top Treatments 1st Place: Diane Preston, Diane's Interior Creations, Murfreesboro, Tennessee The images she submitted to enter the competition? Again photographed by Ambler Brown!

I don't know if I can stand all these accolades at one time, but it does make one feel that it's worthwhile when you get some recognition. Thank you Diane for submitting the images and congratulations on your outstanding and AWARD WINNING work!

Friday evening was fun! Bridgemore is a great place to go for portraits, especially when the subject is a docile pet like Spooky. Thanks Tammy for sharing your friend!
