I’m excited to share with you the new issue of Berthon Lifestyle Magazine, a handsome publication produced annually in the UK by Berthon International. That’s my photo on the cover, and inside (pages 16-21) is my article, a six-page feature spread titled “A Photographer’s Story“.
Berthon is a comprehensive yachting service center located in Lymington, England, and has been in continuous business building and repairing yachts since 1877 (not a typo)! The Berthon Yacht Sales Division has an international presence with offices based in France and the USA as well as England.
We’ve known Sue Grant, the managing director, long distance for several years after she was recommended to us by Dashew Offshore to help us sell our sailboat Raven when AVATAR was nearing completion. Under Sue’s guidance Raven was sold quickly and efficiently – even though physically the boat itself was located in New Zealand, our broker was in the UK, we the sellers were at home in Arizona, and the buyer and his agent were based in Florida. All the logistics were handled by long distance phone calls, emails, and Fed Ex. Truly a modern-day international transaction!
Sue is a fan of The AVATAR Logs and she asked me to submit an illustrated article to include in the September issue. But I wasn’t expecting a six-page spread and the cover! The layout is beautiful and I am so flattered to be represented.
I hope you all take time to read it and enjoy. I’m monitoring the mailbox for hard copies being shipped to me from overseas! Here’s the magazine in its entirety – that’s my image from the Cook Islands on the cover, and the feature article, “A Photographer’s Story“, starts on Page 16.
