I'm pleased to announce that I have been interviewed for B&W Magazine's January issue. ALSO - The issue will be featuring 14 photographs from APUG members!
It was really tough requesting entries from so few of you. Myself and B&W chose members mainly based on their APUG Gallery work. Around 30 photographs were submitted to B&W, and the editors of B&W selected 14 for the article.
Photographers selected were:
Eric Rose (article center piece on page 1, way to go Eric!)
Francesco Cicoli Abad
Please do not be discouraged if your work was not selected. I feel some worthy of selection may have been passed over to show a variety of subject matter in the article. If some of you are scratching your heads thinking "hmm, why wasn't I asked?". It's possible we simply overlooked you and are sorry for that, we did our best in the selection process. We had to move quickly and with everything on my plate lately I'm surprised we were able to pull this off so well. I've never been involved with anything like this, and was caught of guard at the amount of work that goes on behind the scenes. The publisher and writer at B&W were a pleasure to work with.
A HUGE HUGE THANK YOU TO BRIAN McGUINESS!! He was my right hand man on this project. Brian fielded all of the image submissions from around the world to his office in San Fran. There was a lot of material for him to organize and get to B&W and we could not have done this without Brian, thanks man!
Also, thanks a million to the members who took time, effort, and expense to send us your best work. It is such a honor to have you involved in this.
The article should be about 6 pages, 2 of those are mostly text. I can't wait to see it.
