Photographer Ken Kaminesky Lands the Cover Shot on National Geographic

National Geographic cover

Montreal-based travel and commercial lifestyle photographer Ken Kaminesky recently got in touch with us to share the exciting news of how one of his photos landed on the cover of the Hungarian version of National Geographic magazine – a huge honour that Kaminesky is thrilled about.

On his blog, Kaminesky tells the full story of how he was contacted by National Geographic for the use of one of his photos. While at first they were considering another one of Kaminesky’s images (shown below), he explains why the final decision was made:

“Sometimes a good photograph will not work as a cover, considering the graphics that have to be added. This was why they didn’t end up going with my shot of the Eiffel Tower. In the end, the photograph of the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris at night had the right kind of eerie feel to accompany the story inside the magazine. The story is about the creepy Paris underground and you can read it online in English HERE or, if you prefer, in Hungarian HERE.”
