Published in the October issue of Popular Photography magazine!

Image by Thomas Shahan
Tell your friends, rush to the stores – a photo I took of a female Maevia inclemens jumping spider is in October issue of Popular Photography magazine! When I sent them the image, I didn’t expect them to print it for a two page spread!

Not only is this is a substantial honor for me – it’s fantastic publicity for salticids! According to Wikipedia (obviously not the most reliable source) this magazine has a "a total audience of 2,085,000". If true, that is ridiculous! I can only imagine the thoughts going through the minds of folks out there that have never seen a salticid before.

I apologize for the incredibly sparse and infrequent uploads recently, it’s just that I have been incredibly busy as of late. But, no need to worry – I have plenty of great shots on reserve just waiting to be edited and uploaded!

This modest newfound fame has brought something to my attention – it’s really a shame that Popular Photography had to list my flickr address as a way to see more of my photos. It’s just simply too long and makes me seem a bit amateurish. To be clear – I love flickr, but I really should have my own domain at this point for situations like this.

I’ve been thinking of possible domains over the past few days… any ideas?

There’s several other exciting things that may be happening for me in the near future – the possibility of being in "Popular Science" magazine, featured in the artwork for a major videogame, exhibited in museums, and more… I’ll keep you guys updated if anything major happens! It’s certainly an exciting time to be a bug photographer!

For more things Thomas: – my vintage guitar website. – my videos over at youtube. Lots of spider videos! – some of my more recent artwork.

Do térreo parte uma rampa helicoidal, também de concreto armado, que conduz o visitante ao foyer do teatro, espaço que tem 580 metros quadrados.
