Oxford American

Oxford American Issue 62
Who doesn't love this magazine? And who's in charge of publishing the SB Land version of it? Imagine lush photo essays in The Forum and SB. And we don't mean snapshots of society folks. And we're not big fans of some of the content folks are generating for The Shreveport Times website. We want pictures of pie, decay, architecture, culture... we want the essence of this place. Hey, isn't that what Trudeau does? Spend your advertising dollars with him...

It's not too much to ask for good photos. Life magazine set the standard for high quality shots to tell the story way back in the 1930s. If you're a publication, web or print, do us a favor and don't publish rubbish. If you're a photographer, pro or amateur, do us a favor and don't put your garbage out there. One well composed photo is worth... lots of rotten photos are worth crap...

Another great magazine is Louisiana Cultural Vistas. Check it out if you haven't. http://www.leh.org/html/lcv.html

Love that one also but I'm always sad because there's never any SB Land stuff in there and I know we've got great stuff up here. We're just not the best at tooting our own horns...

There's a big article by Eric Brock on Highland in it right now. Lots of pics, too.

Thanks for the heads up. I did a post on it after reading your comment.

Trudeau, admirable as his efforts may be, is hardly the caliber of photographer you're speaking of. Photography is fun and brings enjoyment. Just because you arent shooting black and whites with an old Leica, doesnt mean you cant be good at what you do. The Times member pages are hardly the venue for displaying good photographic work.Do some research. There are great shooters in this area.
