I must admit I'm not so keen on the "new" AP.
It's a pity Roger's been reduced, and also that Ivor Matanle's section has been somewhat decimated.
I was rather looking forward to his article a couple of weeks ago on the Bronica SQ series - and when I got it, it was barely half the length of his previous articles.
I always used to enjoy reading the "Maloney Live" features too. I think they were the last regular film-only articles in the magazine.
I'm rather disgusted at the new contributor's fee model you point out.
And "AP love my pictures"?????? then surely they should pay for them!?
Not to mention that they have put the price up significantly in the last couple of years. They must be raking it in!
