When asked to shoot something that could potentially be a cover, every photographer's heart skips a beat; mine skipped several when a local publication recently asked me to do just that.
A crash-course in staying conscious of title-spacing, a quick trip to the grocery store and a few hours later a pitch was born.
While ultimately another concept was chosen for the cover, I'm flattered that I was part of the creative process. I continue to love shooting for local publications (big & small!) and couldn't thank everyone enough for all of the wonderful opportunities & clients that I continue to gain. It might sound trite, but your support means everything to me.
