I have just received an email from Archant (I used to be a subscriber to Professional Photographer as part of payment for an article but I didn't renew) which starts with: Sadly, we've taken the difficult decision to cease publication of Photography Monthly and Professional Photographer magazines. The rest was about the alternatives for subscribers. Its a pity but PP had seemed to be struggling for a year or two. So more print titles fall by the wayside but the UK market is probably over-served by newsstand photo magazines especially now so many people are using phones. It will be interestiong to see if any others follow suit - most seem to be similar and stuffed with listing adverts by the major dealers who must also be feeling the pinch if they are not selling pallet loads of compact cameras etc. Surely there is a limit to how many dslr dealers the country can support? Might it also mean that there will be fewer camera users seeking to earn pin money or the ego trip of publication? Might the stock photography market be splitting into two (or 3 with video) markets. Might high-end stills just be beginning to move back to a more niche offering albeit with a smaller market (at least while the smartphone look fad works its way out). One can hope

Just as a matter of interest, this could be a location to note down as a search for licensed images. They publish a monthly spreadsheet of their spending (listing on their website going back to April 2010). Unfortunately, the spreadsheets don't contain togs names, just details of amounts paid monthly to Alamy, so I guess it's down to a search of their Website or their publications. Just a quickie to start - from the Planet Earth Winter edition 2013 (link to pdf) The full archive listings for the planet Earth mag. (back to 2008) are here.
