    Am disappointed at the distribution situation but not wholly surprised. We don't control distribution, but I wish we could. Increasingly these days people subscribe to specialist titles such as ours in order to guarantee delivery. A wholesaler will take a view on the local market and will decide for themselves if a specialist title is warranted in its portfolio to offer newsagents. If there's little or no demand then its replaced by something else more mainstream - sad state of affairs I know
    I guessed ist was so. The situation though is that all the copies on display are sold each and every month so............... And not all photographers are online or read about the mags on the web so the only way for them to know the existence of a magazine is to see it at the newsstand so Im really disapointed by the decission. Hmm see if I cn find the money to subscripe.
    Kind regards

    For really big and influental businesses there is no such thing as small market. Only small companies have fear of small markets. If you have only one reader in one country, you have to find a way to keep him/her happy. What is most known brand in history (excluded religion). I think it is Coca Cola. Because where ever you go, at middle of deserts, at top of muntains, if there are only 2 villages with 10 people in them, you can find refrigitrator with red labelled bottle in it... They are big because there is no small markets for them. I don't use their products, I don't like them at all, as company, but that is fact.

    But, then again, businesses are like bureaukracy. At one point they start to act like people are there for them and not they are there for people. So, you should be gratefull that they exists and you should work hard to get their issue/product, instead they should work hard to reach you as consumer/reader. That is total switching of values. Well, world is like that today

    December is issue 79, Christmas is issue 80, January is issue 81.
    Therefore Christmas is the extra 13th issue.

    Okay, David, thanks for the offer. From memory, the last two Christmas issues have also been a tad late.

    I'm a bit disapointed with you guys. Distribution of the mag has been terminated in DK and all you care about is which issue is which
    Ok I can easily subscribe to the mag if I decide to but not all danes can. I know several who either don't have a computer or can't pay online. having the bank taking care of the payment is just to expensive. Then there is the question of how to gain new readers.... Arh never mind were to small a market anyway.
    Thats a bit more money to use on film.
    Kind regards

    Søren, have you thought that perhaps the distributor in Denmark is also at fault, if they were prepared to take a reasonable number on the basis of no returns, paying for the full number then things might be different. Usually magazines are sold on a returns basis, unsold magazines are returned by shops to the distributor.

    Another option which happens with some magazines is private import and sales through photographic galleries, this happens in the UK with some US, Japanese etc photographic magazines.
