Undoubtedly cementing his status as a “cool dad”, Lance Underwood recreates music album covers by photoshopping his sons into them. Dressed in similar clothes and placed in familiar poses, the boys not only have great fun with their father’s creativity, but also accumulate a set of awesome childhood photographs.
The Magpile Store is getting a refresh next month, complete with a new typeface and brand colour.
The idea is to build the Store into a bustling marketplace where readers can find a wider range of international titles, as well as offering publishers a better online store and hopefully bringing publishers over to our little clan from generic selling platforms like BigCartel and Shopify. The completely new design and branding plus improved selling tools and the tight tie-in with Magpile’s huge archive (now 10,000 issues strong) will solidify the Magpile Store as the best place for publishers to sell their magazines online.
There will always be an element of fear when photographing a stranger. I see people everyday whom I would love to photograph and more often than not, I will not approach them because the fear in my belly takes over — thoughts that roll around in my head are the following: “they will say no,” “they will be embarrassed,” “what’s the best way to ask?” or “they will say yes but it might not go to plan.”
I have the best luck when I have an excuse to photograph someone. My excuse could be something as simple as I’m doing a project on local people — that is my usual staple saying. Otherwise, if you are a student, just say that you are doing a project for school, college or university — that always gets the sympathetic vote.
