Everything in life changes, including
editors on magazines. We are all living
and working in an industry that is
founded on change.
And certainly for
working photographers we need to look at
change as an opportunity. I am under no
illusion that many of you will not be overly
worried that one of the magazines you buy
has a new captain at the wheel, but I do as this is my life, my
passion and represents more than 75 hours per week of my time.
From my point of view, as the new Group Editor of Archant’s
Imaging titles and Editor of PP, the opportunity is very much to
evolve the magazine, to get to know its readers and to build a
legacy. From a reader’s perspective, the opportunity is to get
involved in the magazine and help to shape its future.
I genuinely mean that: whether it’s in contributing words and
images, sending in your ideas and thoughts or asking us to look
into an element of the imaging business that you need answers
about. After all, we are journalists and should act like them!
Yes, there are going to be changes in the magazine’s content and
look over the coming months, from new feature ideas to the layout
and design of PP, but I believe the changes will be for the better
for readers.
THIS MONTH
There are some exciting things going on this month, apart
from me joining the team, including the launch of our
Professional Photographer of the Year 2011
competition,
a new columnist in the form of
Martin Middlebrook
and
some rants from working pros about the age-old issue of
Weekend Warriors in the wedding business and dealing
with clients asking for free stuff. In addition,
Brian Adams
(no, not the rocker) has shot an assignment entirely on
an iPhone 4 and in a new feature,
What Pros Want
,
a portrait shooter looks at some rather expensive
Bowens lights to see if he can ‘justify’ the
expense. If you are looking for some pure
inspiration, check out
Ben Duffy's
amazing
portraits of the world’s sports superstars
in our Big Interview. Another new
columnist is
Selina Maitreya
,
a US-based
marketing
expert who has
been working with
professional
photographers for
the past 30 years.
We wanna see
how the Yanks do things and if we can learn anything from them.
I hope you enjoy the issue and please feel free to send your
constructive feedback, feature ideas and pitches, picture stories,
thoughts and musings to us here. Have a great month.

FRONT COVER
I love this shot by Ben Duffy
of Rory McIlroy, the 2011 US
Open golf winner. It is perfect
for the cover because of its
fun, yet striking expression.
