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.
