After reading comments made on this and other forums, many people seem to be 'unhappy' with the photography magazines out there - often citing the increase in articles of digital equipment reviews and Photoshop how-to's.
I decided to create a new magazine - one that deals with traditional image making, whether that's 35mm HP5, glass plate negatives or cyanotypes. Although I've only been working on it for a matter of days, there are several interested parties and offers of support and articles.
It is the intention to provide articles online at http://creativeimagemaker.blogspot.com on a weekly basis and then to provide a paper-based copy once a quarter. Several people mentioned that they prefer to sit down and read a real magazine - it's hard to relax in your favourite armchair with a cup of tea and an Apple Mac perched on your lap ;-)
The first article is due to go live in mid-January and I hope that you'll visit the site and lend your support - this really is supposed to be a magazine for the traditional photographic community, written by us, for us and directed by us. The direction, success or failure of the venture is in the hands of the community, so really hope you'll take a look, subscribe to the RSS newsfeed and maybe even submit an article or two.
The site is up and running right now, providing daily updates on progress as we head towards our real go-live date.
