NIC student's photography appears on magazine cover

|photo1|North Idaho College student Kelly Cox has had the honor of seeing her photography on the cover of a magazine, not once but twice.

Idaho Magazine, published by Idaho Magazine, Inc., out of Boise, selected her photo as the first place winner of the 2003 Photo Contest youth division. Cox was a junior in high school when she snapped “A Cowboy Contemplates,” a shot of her father Paul Cox at sunset leaned up against the barbed-wire fence on the family's 20-acre ranch in Sandpoint.

The ranch proved to be inspirational again recently when Cox photographed her brother and his friend sitting on a fence as the sun descended behind them.

“They had just built a corral and were resting after a day's work,” Cox said of her photo “Ranch Impression,” which placed second in the youth division of the 2005 Idaho Magazine Photo Contest.

The photo was on the cover of the March 2005 issue of Idaho Magazine.

Cox began dabbling in photography about four years ago when she was working at Windward Studio in Sandpoint. Although she's taking photography classes in her first year at NIC, Cox is majoring in education and plans to become a teacher.
