Published Photographer-good soft or drop in the bucket?

Postby DavidYurman85 » Mon Jan 04, 2010 7:39 pm

I was an on-set photographer for a pretty popular cooking show and the host just emailed me that she would like to feature my photos in her new cookbook.

Is this worth a line on the resume?

absolutely. how many food network photographers do you think adcomms get?
also, that's an interesting tidbit. last time i checked, most people like interesting tidbits. and adcomms are (mostly) made of people. so check and check.

Being a huge fan of food network (I even wrote about this in my DS), I'm interested to know what show (if you are allowed to divulge)

Anything that makes you stand out (in a non-negative way) is helpful.

Dude/Dudette, that's wicked cool!

Imagine how that'll stand out amongst the sea of congressional interns and UG club presidents!

While I don't think it's good enough to get you in somewhere where you otherwise have no shot, it's definitely cool, makes you stand out a bit, and is certainly worth a line on your resume.
