New magazine: Fast Media Magazine
Some more info on my Blog

When looking though the magazine and their website, I am sure that I have seen before some of the stock images that they have used. Who can identify the photographers?

... looked more at the images on the flash slide show ... looks like they are also all in the magazine.

Congratulations RT and Nicemonkey!

Hi there,

First of all, great you picked up on this.

I am responsible for Fast Media Magazine, in fact, it's a one man show right now. When I started a couple of months ago I started looking for imagery. While I have a background in traditional stock (I worked at Getty Images for 10 years and Corbis for 2) I don't have a budget to speak of for photography (or anything for that matter...) so went to Istockphoto first. I then found Stock exchange and a number of great conceptual images that I have used in the first magazine. Finally, when Getty changed their blog pricing I bought 2 images of them (Flickr). I did a small post on this some time ago.

The magazine comes from a passion for the industry. I have done all the work and things are now stable and in place and readership is growing. I am trying to bring outside views and ideas into the industry both for microstock and other models. I don't believe in micro/mid/macro but do believe that a continued debate on the model of the future is necessary so photographers can keep shooting and be rewarded for it.

If you find some credits missing that would be the result of juggling many balls right now, sorry about that (let me know if you miss something and I will add it). I have a couple of lightboxes ready to go for the next issue. For the first one I have informed all photographers individually via the comments on sxc. If one of you has any ideas about a quicker way to do this that would be great.

So, I hope this helps a bit, thanks for some of the great pictures, many of which will be used over the coming weeks and months. Also, if you have any suggestions, tips, ideas you want me to write about or report on just let me know. Oh, and if you can help spread the word that would be great too. :)
