ShutterMag premieres, calling photographers to innovate
This magazine has all the polish you’d expect from a pro photography outfit. The magazine is chock full of useful and original content (sign-up to get it free). Most important, it’s the type of read you’d find in your Wired or NewsWeek, basically real stories told well. What the market doesn’t need is another “advertorial” type publication that regurgitates basic tips and tries to sell you on its wares. Thankfully, ShutterMag has struck the right balance.

“Spray and pray!” was the shot heard ‘round the world. It has made professionals twitch collectively with anger and angst.
“Innovative.” “Forward thinking.” “Garbage.” “Irresponsible.”
Whatever you might think, dont judge until you listen to this one on one interview between Sal Cincotta and David Jay.
