Welcome to the first edition of your new, restyled society magazine, Professional Imagemaker. In keeping with the gathering pace of developments in both the Society and the technology, I was invited to freshen up both the graphic design and the content. I hope you like it.
All photography is changing rapidly and it should now be apparent that digital is rising on a steepening curve. You may be faced with the decision to either move with the times or jeopardise your client-base and profitability. We hope as a Society to assist you to move forward in whichever way you choose; you don't have to plunge straight into the digital pool, you can paddle about in the shallow end for a while yet. However at some stage we think that the water wings will have to come off so you had best start to pay attention!
It is Phil's intention to exploit your Editor's 25 years of experience in digital imaging (yes it's that old, it began before PhotoShop was even a twinkle in Adobe's eye). We would still love to showcase your work, so keep sending material in, especially for the competitions. For the rest of your education you could do worse than attend one of the Society seminars, they are unquestionably the best way to get a flying start into developing your skills in whichever direction you choose.
The Societies of Photographers Convention and Trade Show at The Novotel London West, Hammersmith ...
