I have been keeping a little secret. Ok, I have hinted just a little bit about it, and a few people already know, but now that the contracts have been signed and I actually have the check in my hands, it is time to let the cat out of the bag so to speak. If you have followed me for any length of time there is a good chance that you have already seen this image of Multnomah Falls before, it is one of my most popular images, but now A LOT more people who have never heard of me will be getting a chance to see it, in jigsaw puzzle form.
I was contacted about a month ago with a request to license this image to be used as a jigsaw puzzle that will be sold in a lot of retail outlets not the least of which is Hallmark Stores all across America, and will be available sometime in the spring of 2013. Not only will my name be on each and every box, but it will be on the puzzle itself, how cool is that? This is the largest single image license deal I have ever done and I can’t begin to tell you just how excited I am about this. Truth be told, I wanted to tell EVERYONE a few weeks ago when I signed the contract, but being the type that sort of believes in an occasional jinx, I kept it as secret as possible.
What you may not realize about this image is that I actually made it back in 2007 with a Nikon D40 using the kit lens that came with the camera. If anyone ever tells you that it is all about gear, ignore them, you can sell images made with entry level gear, this image is proof.
