Wuan’s Malayan Tiger Photo Sold For US$275

Malayan Tiger at Lok Kawi Zoo, Sabah

Maureen, an agent for a book publisher in the USA, got in touch with me a while back to buy the North American rights for the above photo that Wuan took at the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park in Sabah. The offer was US$150 for one time rights or US$275 for future rights. We opted for the latter for all print and electronic ancillaries. We used the earning that amounted to RM876.29 (RM887.95 before deducting bank commission) for a 38L Aipo dry cabinet to store the Nikon D60 and a Lowepro Fastpack 250 backpack that can accommodate the DSLR and my notebook.

  1. cool.. the tiger photo sure got some people attention yeah. better if you able to sold the photo. 😀

    I like the photo too. First time seeing a tiger up close.

  2. that’s a really good photo. congrats, wuan.

    peter, the lowepro fastpack can store a notebook too? i thought that was just for cameras? was looking at their compu trekker range for both notebook + camera storage. however, if the fastpack can store notebooks then i guess i’d go with that (when i buy my dslr which is going to be real soon) cos of the price difference

    The Fastpack 250 could take my 14″ Acer notebook without problem. It is a worthwhile investment if you are going to travel with a notebook and DLSR often.

  3. Now if only I could remember where I crapped last night, hate to spoil the day stepping on your own turd.
