iPhotographer Magazine launches on the Apple Newsstand with a free Preview Issue today, Friday, August 16. You can find free download information here.

This is more than just a PDF rehash of a traditional magazine. This feature-rich publication includes interactivity and multimedia in a format designed from the ground up for the iPad. The design of the magazine is slick and high-end.

The preview issue draws from the eye, knowledge and experience of a top-notch group of iPhone photographers and artists, including Jack Hollingsworth, Knox Bronson, Dan Marcolina, Maia Panos, Elodie Hunting, Rudy Vogel, Natali Prosvetova, Lanie Heller and many other top artists in the field. Many of iPhotographer’s staff are early movers and shakers of the iPhoneography movement. The knowledge shared in this publication’s pages (panels? I’m old school…) come from years of experience in helping shape the art form. We’ve got some preview pages in the gallery below.

iPhotographer Magazine targets a broad scope of iPhoneographers and artists. The editorial scope ranges from the casual user who shares on Instagram to globally-recognized artists who use their iOS device to create intricate and amazing works of art. Content ranges from Jack Hollingsworth’s gear talk to tips and tricks from high-profile artists to galleries of world-class iPhone art. Published monthly, iPhotographer will be able to keep up with current iPhoneography trends in both style and gear, but be able to explore these topics in the greater depth that a periodical can afford. I’m on the phone regularly with Editor Knox Bronson. There are some great stories and features on the board for upcoming issues. iPhotographer is going to be a great-looking, exciting, educational and useful publication!

Grab the free preview issue now. It’s about a third of the size of a regular issue and there’s plenty of great content in the preview. Future issues will be available for $3.99 each, a monthly Apple Newsstand subscription of $3.99 per month. Right now, you can order an annual subscription for $18.99 — that’s 60% off the cover price.

There’s more info and an App Store link on iPhotographerMag.com.

Here’s the rest of the press release:

Publisher Petr Palan of Fast Track Magazines and Editor Knox Bronson of P1xels—The Art of the iPhone have joined forces to launch an exciting new magazine, iPhotographer, a lens focused on the vibrant and exciting world of mobile photography in a beautiful, fully-interactive, multi-media publication for the iPad. Along the way, they have assembled a stellar crew of writers, editors, curators, artists, and photographers in order to produce an amazingly original, informative, and extremely entertaining magazine.

The preview issue is generous in its content, about a third of the size of the coming regular issues, to reveal some very clever features unlike anything else in the traditional photography, mobile or otherwise, magazine format, such as The Secret Smartographer, Appstrology, Mike Sweeney’s Playground, and much much more.

Beautiful regional and city galleries from around the world, video interviews, audio to delight and educate, detailed tutorials, expert gear reviews by award-winning photographer and gear-hound Jack Hollingsworth, an advice column, the best of Instagram galleries in every issue. Add to this the always amazing art selection and curation, along with informative articles, at times off-beat and funny, always geared to enriching your life as both a maker and lover of great pictures, and you have the most exciting photography, art, and lifestyle magazine on the planet.

As we take pictures with our phone and shares them with friends, family, and the world, we are creating a revolution, a global phenomenon unprecedented in human history. iPhotographer Magazine strives to capture and focus that amazing energy every month.

Three core concepts guide everything iPhotographer brings to its readers: CREATIVITY—SIMPLICITY—INSPIRATION.

Along with the unspoken one: FUN!

iPhotographer’s goals are simply to  enliven, illuminate, and create a monthly snapshot of the global moment in iPhone photography: what people are doing with their phones, their amazing pictures, and the technological developments enabling it all.

The magazine is aimed at the global community … taking pictures and bringing out the magic in them … for ALL levels of interest, experience, and expertise.

Every month it will feature art and artists, tips and tricks, the newest tools, hardware and apps, in capturing the magical moments of life.

iPhotographer Magazine is for anybody who loves taking pictures with a phone, anybody who loves beautiful pictures and is interested in the people making them, anybody who is interested in the cutting-edge technology of photography, and anybody who is interested in cultural movements such as the uploading of one half a billion pictures a day to social networks!

    What an irony, a magazine about iPhone is not available for iPhone!

    • psztrnk

      My thoughts exactly. This way it’s totally useless for me.

        As a start-up, we had to pick out spot for launch, and we believed that the many images need larger presentation. The interactivity of the magzine is best served on the iPad as well. You will remember that it took a long time for Flipboard, Apple “App Of The Year”, to port their magazine/site/app to the iPhone. We are of course looking at how to do that at some point.
        As Steve Jobs said, “Real artists ship.” I hope you can find a way to look at our generous free preview issue on an iPad.

        • psztrnk

          Unfortunately, no. I do not own an iPad, nor does anyone I can borrow from.

        • Akhil

          yes, if I win an iPad, then why not :-)

  • Tina Rice

    I felt then should of given a full free issue, not full of promos and a few articles. I feel and not alone on this that why should I pay for a magazine that I’ve read about the same artists for FREE on WeAreJuxt, AMPt, The App Whisperer, iPhoneArt and here (Life in LoFi). What’s sad is there are so many talent artist who’ve evolve and those people are stuck reading about the same ole people over and over again. It’s time to change and find some fresh iPhone artist. Eventually you’re going to have to step outside of the box and venture out, stop using the same people that all do the same style of editing or close to the same style. I don’t know about you but I’m kind of over grunge textures and painterly looking photos !!!

    Since this medium has grown so fast, there should be bigger number of artists out there…It’s like Dan Berman said that the iPhoneography blogosphere is a big sandbox and there’s room for everyone. So why are we stuck with the same old artists when there’s a huge sand box out in the world to play in !!!

    I know some people aren’t going to agree with me but there are a lot of people who do agree with me. They just won’t come out and say it, like me.

    End of story.

    What’s funny is the irony comment down below…touche Akhil !!!

      What same old artists? Colin Brown? Maia Panos? Our Instagram people as curated by Lanie Heller? Elodie Hunting? Ashley Callaghan? Nicole Dalesio? You can’t find them anywhere, except maybe on P1xels (and instagram). Our content is all fresh, all original, and exclusive, and more beautifully presented than anything else out there.

      With iPhotographer, we are moving completely out of the “virtual” and into mainstream culture, which has always been my goal since the launch of P1xels in 2009, which paved the way for everybody who followed. I have never cared about the “blogosphere” at all, as everybody knows.

      Have you even looked at the magazine? We’ve raised the bar for every photography and art magazine out there, not just iPhone-centric publications.

      You are free, along with Akhil and psztmk, to start your own magazine. In fact, I heartily encourage you to do so. Seriously. It’s the next big sandbox. Step up and ship!
