THE solution to trying to earn a living as a freelance fashion photographer in a highly competitive industry? In a fascinating read in today’s Scotland on Sunday Spectrum magazine, for Edinburgh-based Louise Munro, it was: start up one’s own magazine.
A so, writes Ruth Walker, Munro and others began publishing Slave magazine, currently celebrating its first birthday with its fifth issue.
Munro is quoted having been “completely taken aback” by the positive response the magazine has received.
She is quoted, as saying: “The first issue came out and we thought maybe it would be like a little local magazine, but we were having submissions from Australia, America, all over Europe. It just snowballed, and evey issue keeps getting bigger, editorials get better. We’re getting editorials from more established photographers as well.”
