Quality editorial, and great "how to" content, have already made this magazine one of the leaders in supportive publishing for the aspiring and working professional photographer. Sal's additional new feature, starting with the premiere's cover image, "How I Got The Shot," is a great example of the quality of information you can expect in the future.
Besides great content and staying true to standards of color reproduction and printing quality, it's a new size, just about 8x10. Perfect to travel with. In fact, mine, right now, is in the sleeve with my Mac Air.
Blair's article this month is all about "Senior Glam Sessions". Over the last ten years, senior photography has become one of the fastest growing specialties. Blair's helping you take it one step further, adding glamour to the mix and going into plenty of detail to help you consider the concept for your own business.
On several podcasts and videos, noted beauty and fashion photographer, Matthew Jordan Smith has talked about the importance of clients feeling beautiful. In fact, one example he's talked about came out of a session with Vanessa Williams, who, even though she's one of the most beautiful women in the world, doesn't always feel beautiful.
Well, Lori has taken the time to give you plenty to think about. Making a client feel beautiful isn't as much about your technical skills as it is about your communication skills. It's about building a relationship with each subject and as Lori points out, making each person feel special. She's even given you ideas of conversation starters you might use during a family portrait session.
Articles by other industry notables include Laurin Theines, Joe Switzer, Justen Hong, Sal Cincotta, Craig Lamer, Alissa Zimmerman, Vanessa Joy, Moshe Zusman, Michael Corsentino, Dustin Lucas and yours truly. I couldn't be more proud to be working with this crew of dedicated professionals.
In one of the first few pages of the new magazine you'll find Sal's "Launch Point" message in his role as Editor-in-Chief. This pretty much says it all...
Y'all done good!"
