I received a nice surprise yesterday when the UPS man dropped off a copy of Utah, Life Elevated by Kimball Thomson. The 200+ page book is primarily for the State of Utah to use as a recruitment tool for companies looking to relocate or expand into this area.

In February of this year I was contacted by the publisher to see if I was interested in doing freelance photography work for the book. The pay per image was reasonable so I accepted the offer. I am pleased to say that they used 11 of my images including four as full-page section dividers. While digital is cool, I never tire from seeing my photographic work in the physical “hold in my hands” printed form.

Today’s image is my favorite from those used in the book. Not just because of the particular photo, but also with the placement. It is a shot of the Utah Capitol Building at sunset and it is placed adjacent to the book’s foreword written by Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, Jr.
