My Photo featured in "Menara KL Towering Excellence"

"Menara KL, Towering Excellence" is a book which talk about the KL Tower, the highest tower in Southeast Asia, highlighting the unique and historical aspects of its construction. This 254-page book, “Menara KL, Towering Excellence”, was launched by KL Tower Chairman, Datuk Othman Abdul in early March 2014. It was aimed at supporting the efforts of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture to promote interesting places in the country in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year (VMY 2014).

The success and achievements of the KL Tower and international events carried out have been compiled into a book of memoirs which also informs the public the idea behind it and the history of its construction. The book is selling at RM120 and can be bought at all major bookstores.

The reason I share about this is because one of my KL Tower photos is featured in this book!! Let's check it out! *bangga*

Basically the book publisher saw this photo on my blog and emailed me, asked if I can send him the high resolution photo for them to compile to this coffee table book - "Menara KL, Towering Excellence". Since this was my first time receiving this enquiry, I was more than happy to accept it with the terms that they will mail one to me when it is printed.

You may find my image in "Menara KL Towering Excellence" at pages 110 and 111
I am not sure how much I can sell my image to a book publisher, hence I decided to let them credit me in the Menara KL Coffee Table Book instead. Not sure if I am the only Malaysian featured in this page haha. All other names are either from organisation or "ang mo"'s name.

The first book was torn at the side but I get another new one. Thankfully
I still remember when I received the first package, it was broken and the book was torn at the edge. Fortunately, the publisher agree to send me a new one after request to compensate that and the packaging is definitely better with bubble wrap this time.

If a book publisher approach you to buy your photo, usually what's the rate?? Should I consider publish a Photobook/ E-Book and sell to people who are interested?? If yes, what kind of photobook would you want to see in store??

Last but not least, I would like to thanks CD Communications Group Sdn Bhd for the opportunity to get my photo featured in this meaningful and memorable book about Menara KL (KL Tower). If any of you interested to have the extra book I have now (although it is torn at side), let me know =)
