Marianne Posted February 7, 2020 Share Posted February 7, 2020 PDN Magazine is closing - and as this blog article from Photoshelter mentions, that leaves us with very few photography magazines. The blog article and interesting commentary I remember when I took photography back in college, even the magazine racks out in western Massachusetts were crowded with so many offerings. Of course that was 40 years ago...what a different world we live in now ...but even a decade ago, there were still so many options... and there were bricks and mortar bookstores where you could stare at the racks and pick from scores of beautiful magazines on any topic that took your fancy. It's amazing that some of the oldest stock photo agencies left weren't even around 15 years ago. Anyway, I didn't see any discussion about it here so thought I'd start one. PDN runs two of the biggest photo trade shows in the US - PhotoPlusExpo in NYC - where I've taken some amazing classes by world-class photographers, and you get to play with all the new gear too. - And WPPI for wedding photographers. They are still going to be running the trade shows ... but who know for how long? I used to belong to the Professional Photographer's Association (a nationwide group of local county and state-wide associations) and it got to the point where they couldn't get some of the major Photo giants to come to their trade shows even in the NY metropolitan area and so attendance suffered - I just wonder what will be left for those who want to learn this craft - will it be all YouTube videos?
