Finally got my hands on a copy or two of the most recent issue of Fairmont Magazine, along with a nice note from the publication's designer. The publication, put out quarterly by a team in Montreal, Quebec, is the corporate magazine of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts Internationally.
Contacted by them late last spring to photograph recent renovations to their Maui property, I am ecstatic to see the results finally in print, a ten page Design Special spread with multiple full-page photo use.
Equally nice was the note received from the designer:
"Thanks for everything. You have no idea how much i love them. I was scared that this story will visually look like a boring hotel article, but this is stunning. Thanks so much."
Always eager to lend a hand to a worthy non-profit group or community organization, I was contacted recently by the Hawaii Chapter of The Make-A-Wish Foundation . The plan was to capture photographs of young Kenny, a child diagnosed with Sarcoma, and to illustrate his desire to see snow for the first time. The foundation just sent me the latest issue of Honolulu Magazine, sporting a full page, inside back cover ad featuring my photo of Kenny.
