    I signed up last year and it took 4 months to get my first issue. I never found out why, but they came consistently after that. Good luck!

    View Camera is a very small operation. They don't have the depth of resources as a Condé Nast, or Time Life. Next to driving over to New Mexico and knocking on their door, I suggests patience and a few more phone calls.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    There seems to be all sorts of problems with magazine subscriptions these days. I'm also trying to get the people at Focus (as well as another small magazine) to send my issues in a timely manner.

    I had the same problem getting my subscription going a couple of years ago. I didn't renew.

    Guillaume,

    As others have suggested, a phone call or PM will probably get your question answered in short order.

    Keep in mind View Camera is published bi-monthly. It usually ships to subscribers between the 1st and 10th of the month. How long it takes en route is a function of the US Postal Service and out of the control of View Camera. It doesn't go first class (I believe it's "Media Mail", which used to be called second class). So, the shipping times are longer, especially to get to the west coast (the publisher is located in New Mexico, but the magazine is printed back east and shipped to subscribers from the printer).

    It sounds like you missed the June/July issue (which would have shipped prior to ordering your subscription) and will likely be receiving the Aug/Sep issue within the next week or so (assuming it shipped on schedule and the Postal Service gets it to you with reasonable dispatch).

    subscriptions are out of house...

    I've learned that subscriptions to even the most wonderful little magazines are often handled by a specialized service located who-knows-where, and their indifferent service may not be a reflection of the nice folks who do the publishing.
