Published Photo

I have had many photos published in the past, and some bought at auctions.

Last year I was approached by an author’s representative asking for permission to use one of the photos from my blog for a book to be published in 2021. I approved the use of the photo, if I could receive an autographed copy of the book.

This week I received my autographed copy of the book, Rescuing the Planet by Tony Hiss. Tony is the author of fifteen books, including the award-winning The Experience of Place. You may recognize his name from being a staff writer at The New Yorker for over 30 years.

The photo of the stotting mule deer used in the book came from the following that I posted in 2012.

Clarno Unit

I spent five days in the John Day Country in October. Early in the visit I drove to the Clarno Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.

Mule Deer stotting (unique style of running to mule deer and black tail deer)

On the way I spotted several hundred mule deer. Most of the land is privately owned and hunting is either not allowed or is allowed only by those who pay a hefty fee to the land owner. But, it was fun seeing the deer in any event.

Did they spot me?

  1. John,

    I’ve enjoyed reading your blog. It’s inspiring me to get outdoors, beyond the golf course, more. Love the pic of the mule deer you captured. I’m sure you have your hands full with both Oregon and Washington sessions. Can’t say I miss it! Miss the people, but not the grind… 🥴
