Free: Photography Magazines

Park Steiner is offering back issues of Popular Photography, Outdoor Photographer, Shutterbug, American Photographer, and Photo Techniques.  Dates range from the 1990’s to recent years.  Most of these publications are now out of print, but much of the content remains relevant.  There are articles on composition, lighting, posing, even working with models, professional or just the grandkids.  Black and white is a common topic, both digital and from the darkroom.  There are inspirational pieces on why art is an important part of photographers’ lives, and how photographs are instrumental in disseminating information to others.  And, of course, the magazines are filled with many fine examples of great photography.  In addition, the advertisements provide a window into the technology and styles of the time.  

The only organization is that they are in boxes by publication.  Dates are random.  Being stored indoors, they’re all in nice shape.

Interested photographers should contact Park at parksteiner@pacific.net to arrange for perusal and pickup at his Deerwood home.
