Welcome to Shadow & Light Magazine

Shadow & Light Magazine: EncausticI 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, July/August 2017, Is all about the encaustic process in photography. Our editor-at-large, Helen K. Garber took the reins and created a Special Edition of Shadow & Light Magazine that is filled to overflowing with compelling imagery and very informative text.

But the really big news is that this issue is the first official that is also available as a print issue, as well as downloadable PDF.

The encaustic astists feature in this issue are: Helen K. Garber, Jeri Eisenberg, Patti Russotti, Robert Cook Medina, Susan Rehmer, Lori Van Houten, Jill Skupin Burkeholder, Marybeth Rothman, Carol Mell (cover artist), and Wayne Montecalvo.

Take a journey down the creative lane that is encaustic, and you will be surprised how these photographers blend a few creative touches into something that is at once compelling and visually wonderful.

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 16-issue run we have featured portfolios from more than 135 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 90 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, 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.
