I am pleased to announce that we have received final approval from Apple to launch Street Photography Magazine. It is now live in the Newsstand and can be found by clicking here.
Although it’s been live for only two days we have seen a large number of downloads and a huge level of interest from the street photography community. Best of all, it was featured in the What’s New section of the Newsstand on day one.
Initially, SPM will be published every two months. Once we get our publishing chops down, we plan to publish monthly.
The single issue price is $4.99 US and the subscription price is only $1.99. During our launch period, the first issue is free when you subscribe, so there’s no risk if you want to give it a try.
Each issue will include an interview with at least one featured photographer with samples of their work. We also include a number of how to articles that will be of interest to photographers of all levels.
Our first issue features London based urban photographer, Ronya Galka. Don’t miss it. I’ve know her for several years through her active participation on Flickr and was thrilled that she agreed to be in the inaugural edition. She’s a prolific photographer who had some compelling work in and around London.
For those seeking to create more compelling image, we have a feature article about using an ancient composition technique and show how the masters have used it over the years.
Tristan Jud, a pro shooter and instructor from Perth, Australia shares his street photography quick tips and Edi Caves has an excellent guide to using the iPhone on the street.
Although our focus is on the art, new gear is always of interest to most of us. And in this issue Peter Adams does thorough review of the new Sony RX1 full-frame mirrorless camera.
What I love about the iPad magazine format is that it gives us the ability to stream video and audio along with text and images. It enables the artists to tell their stories and share their techniques in a way that printed magazines can’t. Our objective is to take full advantage of this new medium to help you take your street photography to the next level.
