Top Gear Cover - May 2012 by notbland Top Gear Cover - May 2012 by notbland
Thought I would share my biggest accomplishment in my career so far with you guys, my dA fans... I made the cover of Top Gear Magazine.


Starting out all those years ago, I had a handful of goals to try to accomplish in this field. One of them was to somehow get on the cover of Top Gear before I turned 30. Just turned 28 last week. I'd say I nailed that one. :)

This is the cover for several international editions, so it should be on newsstands scattered across Europe. I'm not sure about the rest of the world, as I haven't heard feedback from fans outside of Europe, so if you see it where you live, let me know! And fans in the US- we get issues one month after they go on sale in the UK, so you'll have to wait a couple weeks before you see it, unfortunately!

Also... I may or may not have three individual series in this issue. Just saying... ;)

Kudos, what a fantastic achievement! :hooray:

Must've been truly awesome, ticking one of your life's boxes. Becoming a Top Gear photographer itself is already a badge of honour for many – they seem to take aesthetics very seriously. :clap:

Alas; retail copy. If you subscribe, they strip away all the sales pitches for the cover and just let you enjoy the photography. A nice little perk. :)
