As you can see by the image on the left (Thank you, Kimber Wallwork-Heineman for the use of this image), there is a new online (PDF) magazine, Shadow & Light, which will debut to the general public September, 1, 2014, with two free issues. It has been a long time since I published a magazine, and it just wouldn’t let me wait any longer. Shadow & Light has been in the planning stages for more than six-months, but in the thought process for a much longer time.
Granted, I have been delivering Red Dog News to your inbox for almost seven years… issue #140 will be out this Friday! Who knew?
As I conducted a great deal of research on the web, I was unable to locate a what I considered was real photography magazine. I saw many beautifully laid-out publications that had great content, excellent writing, and had great images; but they weren’t close to what I wanted to create.
In the list below you will be able to see the initial sections of the magazine, which will (of course) evolve over time. I hope you like Shadow & Light, and will purchase an annual subscription ($10/year) or individual copies ($2.25/each), beginning January 1, 2015.
