International Publications

In our foyer, Ken arranged the magazines from around the world (excluding the United States) in which I have my images published. Some of these are covers (China, South Africa and Poland), others are images inside the magazine or small "mug shots" on the cover (Japan, Brazil, Denmark, Sweden, and Russia).

It took me around four years to start getting published abroad. And to those aspiring cat photographers out there, I can tell you that it started by letting my images get published without remuneration, just to get my name out there. If you are looking to get published and be paid for it, I suggest you first start by qualifying when you are willing to donate images for a one-time use (Photo Courtesy of "your name here") . And don't forget the Internet -- another way to get your name known.

Good luck! The world can always use better cat images.


  1. Hello Helmi

    I am so pleased to see my cover-shot on All About Cats magazine here in your journal :-)

    You are very inspirational to me and I'm honored.

    Kindest regards from South Africa
    Irene McCullagh

  2. Congratulations, Irene, on the cover of All About Cats in South Africa! To those of you who can't see the cover, it is a shot of a darling kitten and makes one want to pick up the magazine and read it.

    Kudos to you, Irene, and thank you for the kind words about my photography!

  3. That's really kind of you :-)
