    Jim & Roy both lament the demise of Camera & Darkroom magazine.

    The first magazine I ever wrote for in 1989, was Camera & Darkroom.

    I, too, lamented the demise of that magazine, so when I was asked to edit the new publication, Photovision, C&D was my model, which is probably why so many people see a similarity.

    Hi Steve,

    What's better for you, if I buy from a newsstand or via subscription?
    If it's the same, I'll get a subscription, I like getting things in the mail :-)

    He is asking for subscriptions. If the magazine business is anything like the record business, the distributors and stores are taking a major chunk of the newstand price.

    Also, it's my understanding that advertisers look primarily at subscriptions in deciding where to advertise and how much to pay for ads.

    A Russian scientist and a Czechoslovakian scientist had spent their whole lives studying the majestic grizzly bear. Each year they petitioned their respective governments to allow them to go to Yellowstone to study these wondrous beasts.

    Finally, their request was granted and they immediately flew to New York and then on west to Yellowstone. They reported to the local ranger station and were told that it was the grizzly mating season and it was much too dangerous to go out and study the animals.

    They pleaded that this was their only chance. Finally the ranger relented. The Russian and the Czech were given cell phones and told to report in each and every day.

    For several days they called in, and then nothing was heard from the two scientists. The rangers mounted a search party and found the scientists' camp completely ravaged. No sign of the missing men.

    They then followed the trail of a male and a female bear. They found the female and decided they must kill the animal to find out if she had eaten the scientists because they feared an international incident.

    They killed the female and cut open the bear's stomach… only to find the remains of the Russian.

    One ranger turned to the other and said, "You know what this means, don't you?"

    "Of course," the other ranger nodded.

    "The Czech is in the male."

    I received my complementary copy this morning. Thanks Steve. All this including Howard Bond ! Just like old times. Give me a chance to have a flip through the mag. It looks as though another sub. may be in the offing.

    Yesterday I was in the New York subway and saw a copy of _American Photo_ at the newstand. Unusual that a photo mag is featured right out front at an ordinary newstand, so I looked more closely and read the tag line: "COLLECT ALL FOUR J-LO COVERS!"

    I think there's the solution to _Photovision_'s subscription problems. You've got to admit, we live in a culture of celebrity. I can see the headlines now:

    "UNCHARACTERISTIC CURVES: J-Lo on BPF 200 in Rollo Pyro!"

    Or maybe you want to market to a more upscale, Merchant-Ivory kind of crowd:

    "JOYCE TENNESON CAPTURES THE BROODING FACE OF HELENA BONHAM-CARTER"

    And if all else fails, you might as well go for the centerfold:

    "KIM WESTON REVISITS THE AZOTEA WITH SALMA HAYEK"
