Welcome to Shadow & Light Magazine

Shadow & Light MagazineI would like to introduce you to Shadow & Light Magazine, a PDF-based bi-monthly publication covering all aspects of the art of photography.

This issue, September/October 2017, is all about Route 66 . We took a singular portfolio we new we were going to feature, and added a few more photographers and voilá we had another Special Issue. Italian photographer Donatella Davanzo is working with the University of New Mexico on a project about that famed “Mother Road,” and accepted our invitation to share her images and story with you.

The issue also features Pat Berrett, Martin Smith, Rob Atkins, and Rhonda Spidell, whose family owned a gas station in Arizona, along Route 66, for a long time. Rounding out this issue Alain Briot further explains Abstractionism, and E.E. McCollum offers us his thoughts on Western Highways. Tim Anderson took to the keyboard to review Arthur Myerson’s new release, “In Color,” and Andrew Darlow shares some tips from his new book, “Focus and Filter.”

The magazine will be released to subscribers September 15, 2017.

We began Shadow & Light Magazine with only 78 pages, and that page count has now increased and settled in at 100 pages full of compelling writing and wonderful portfolios.

Our annual (six issues) subscription rate is $14.50, a savings of $5.00 off the single issue price of $3.50!

Throughout our 19-issue run we have featured portfolios from more than 142 photographic artists (many of whom are having their work published for the first time), as well as single fine art photography images from more than 110 photographers. As a result of the emphasis on the image and along with quality essays, our world-wide subscriber base has been growing significantly.

We regularly have insightful and informative articles by writers like George DeWolfe, Brooks Jensen, Alain Briot, Helen K. Garber, Tim Anderson, Andrew Darlow, Beate Chelette, Alyson Stanfield, Andy Ilachinsky, E.E. McCollum, and Sandra Djak Kovacs, among others.

The majority of the photographers featured in Shadow & Light Magazine come from our submission process, which is simple and very easy.

If you click on the “Submissions” tab above you will discover all the information you need to know in order to submit your work.

Just hover over to the “Purchases” tab at the top of this page, and you will be able to pick up single issues or sign up for an annual subscription. Note: You will not be able to purchase single copies of the current issue until after the 15th of the release month.

There will also be no more deadlines for submissions for future issues. Once you submit your work it will remain in our archives. If you didn’t qualify for a “Showcase Portfolio,” we might choose one of your images for the “Single Image Showcase.” That’s why submitting a portfolio makes great sense! All fees for submissions will remain the same.

Thank you for your interest in Shadow & Light Magazine, and we hope to be able to serve, educate and entertain you for many years to come.
