Mine arrived this last week; I think it's the best issue yet.
Takako Uno and Stephen Wongs pictorial / interview is outstanding. I had the good fortune to meet them last year in Sipadan, really a great couple. He is really a trip. Your interview reflects what easy going people they are.
I think they still shoot film.

Got mine a couple days ago as well. Awesome and inspiring as always!

Extra bonus: a friend and fellow wetpixeler who says they're "too embarrassed" to sometimes show their pics has an image in one of the ads! (you know who you are!)

Images in ads: that is the easiest, sure-fire way to get in the magazine. :)

But seriously, we're always looking for something different, and don't care who you are. You might say that we're photographer-resume agnostic, so if you've got something interesting, please always feel free to get in touch!

Haha, NO KIDDING, ERIC!! (Phil? A buttkicking will take place on Thursday. Better adjust your will, pronto.)

I loved it - absolutely pored over Tony's article. I also especially enjoyed the BC/Alaska stuff - I really like seeing beautiful photos from green water - truly inspiring.

It arrived in the UK yesterday.

Once again, a visual feast! The green water pictures are great, So often we see image after image in blue, it is really easy to forget most water isn't!

Got mine last week, and my girlfriend promptly stole it! Spectacular issue, as always.
It's all a matter of perspective...

Got mine. Folded over and crammed into my tiny mailbox by my idiot mailman as usual. They must be building quite a file on the guy based on my complaints. :angry: Thanks for adding the "Do not fold or bend" to the label -- gives me more ammo against the moron. The text on the label a bit small however! In any event, the photos are quite nice as always. Remembering that it IS Wetpixel magazine does mitigate the desire for a few fresh faces now and then . . .

received mine yesterday...

It is a fantastic publication, sounds a little weird but I really like the quality of the paper, I reckon that makes such a difference on making the images also look great!

Got mine and the folks are using the one I gave them as a coffee table book to show their friends.

I agree with the comment about the paper and print quality. Really a top shelf product.

Well, of course it may sound a bit biased, but I really liked the Port Hardy article by Alex. Almsot like I was there. THe cover is a beautiful shot. I also enjoyed Eric's story on his turtle photos.
