The April issue marked the 5th anniversary of Street Photography Magazine. What began as the test of a new publishing technology grew into an amazing community of passionate photographers of all nationalities and skill levels. It has been an amazing journey and I have you to thank for it.
I also have to give a big shout out to our editor Ashley Hunsberger who has done a tremendous job finding new and diverse articles and keeping me on track. We wouldn’t have made it this far without her. Thanks kiddo.
One of the benefits of publishing a magazine is the opportunities it creates to meet some very cool and creative people. Our guest today is Ayash Basu, the founder of Loculars. In short, Loculars is an online marketplace for unique short-form (2-5 hour) photo experiences let by some super talented photographers in several cities around the world. It’s sort of like an Airbnb for photo experiences
I’ve reviewed every experience on their website and was blown away by the depth and breadth of options.
Ayash was nice enough to offer our community a special 10% discount on any of the photo experiences on the website. If you’re interested just enter the code STREETPHOTOGRAPHY10 in the order form. The offer expires on May 31, 2018.
