You'd think after all these years in the industry, and almost ten of them in publishing, the novelty of getting a magazine would have long worn off! Well, it hasn't and every month when my issue of Shutter Magazine arrives I come bounding in from the mailbox like a kid on his birthday!
This month's issue is loaded with great content and coming in at 212 pages, it may well be the largest magazine in professional photography. And, yes, I do write for Shutter and have a monthly column on the building blocks of business, but my passion for this publication has nothing to do with my articles. It's about the enthusiasm and focus of the team involved, starting with Sal Cincotta and his dream of publishing a solid "how-to" magazine.
If you're not tuned into Shutter Magazine, just click on this month's baby edition to check out the website, and subscribe to both the online publication as well as in print.
Personally, I still love a magazine I can hold. While today's online technology offers convenience, I still like to look at great images and kick back and just read something I can hold.
While you're checking out the magazine, check out Project Lunacy, a hands-on boutique conference coming up in November. It's a spin-off of the most talked about new show in our industry, ShutterFest and promises to be another amazing experience for those who register in time!
Meanwhile, I'm going back to reading my new Shutter Magazine!
