Jody Miller featured in upcoming Cowboys and Indians Magazine
What a perfect match! My Horse and Cowboy photography with Cowboys and Indians Magazine. Here’s the story…
Two weeks ago I was contacted by an Advertising Sales Rep for Cowboys and Indians Magazine.
Matt Russell was offering me advertising space in their magazine to compliment my “being featured”. Matt works in sales and does not create the editorial content but had seen my name on the list for an upcoming feature. Needless to say I was very excited but also a bit skeptical. Could Cowboys and Indians Magazine really be featuring my photography in an editorial article and have not contacted me yet? I kindly asked Matt to check into how I was going to be featured in the Magazine.
Then a few days later I received this email…
Here is a sneak peek at what you’ll see in the
February/March Western Photography Special issue!
Cowboys & Indians ’ annual photography issue promises the visual splendor of the American West, through stunning landscapes, poignant portraits of people and animals, and amazing action shots from the world of rodeo. Every year we ask our readers to submit their best photo works for consideration, and every year we’re blown away by the scope of talent and vision that ends up in our pages. Look for the February/March 2018 edition to see this year’s crop of winners, and to see the inspiring work of our professional judges — Erika Haight, Tony Stromberg, E. Dan Klepper, and Jody Miller. You’ll also find inspiring photo essays on the historic (the legacy of Edward S. Curtis) and the modern (Native photographer Wendy Red Star. )
Well, now I was really confused. Seeing my name right alongside of Tony Stromberg (the number 1 Equine Photographer), it started to feel true! As many of you know, a few years ago I completely revamped my website and have been dedicated to routinely blogging and keeping on top of the Google Search engine results for Horse Photography and Horse Photographer. Could this work have “paid off” in a whole new way I had not even thought about?
After receiving this Sneak Peak email I decided to reach out to Cowboys and Indians via their Facebook page. Here was their response….
“Sorry for the confusion, but it is just a coincidence! The judge in our contest is a landscape and equine photographer based in Oregon and Palm Springs, and she has agreed to judge. The pictures on your profile do look great, though — keep us posted on your upcoming projects!”
Who is the real Jody Miller?
I always new there was a female singer named Jody Miller and a male real estate agent from British Colombia named Jody Miller. I knew from my google research that there was another photographer named Jody Miller but I didn’t make the connection right away, after all what are the odds.
Photographer, Jody Miller featured in Cowboys and Indians Magazine
So the other Jody Miller, Photographer is a landscape photographer from Astoria Oregon and doesn’t take horse or cowboy photos at all. Hopefully, others will make the same mistake that Matt Russell made and when Jody Miller continues to be promoted in Cowboys and Indians Magazine. And I’m sure this is a sign of things to come for me as I expand my career as a Horse Photographer!
