I have been publishing a quarterly e-magazine called ICM Photography Magazine for a year now. This magazine is dedicated solely to the Art of ICM photography, i.e., Intentional Camera Movement photography.
I know ICM is not mainstream photography and is very niche…but it is gaining in popularity around the world. I’ve now featured nearly 50 photographers, in more than a dozen different countries, and the readership is from more than 40 countries.
The magazine is also advertisement free. And, I have paid every featured photographer who has been published in the magazine from day one. This is a very important aspect of the project…to support other photographers by paying them for their content.
Featured photographer articles are basically just that…showcasing the photographer’s work, along with a written article about their ICM journey and creative philosophies.
Each quarter there are also topic articles about everything from various Art movements, to Mindfulness in photography, to projects working with a specific subject, and more.
The magazine is interactive…links to all photographers personal platforms are all live links. There is also video content in some of the issues.
The magazine also has an ICM exercise for readers to do and then submit their images for possible publication and feedback in the next issue.
And, there is a mentoring opportunity each issue, with a team of ICM photographers known for their ICM work and Environmental work, Leeming & Paterson. Readers can submit to be selected for mentoring and then their mentoring session will be published in the next issue.
All of this, along with a photographer spotlight each quarter - the first four photographer spotlights have been William Neill, Leeming & Paterson, Pep Ventosa, and Freeman Patterson.
I know this kind of content and genre of photography doesn’t appeal to everyone, but the magazine really is about so much more than just presenting pretty pictures for the sake of pretty pictures, and I think there are probably things in each issue that most people can relate to, regardless of the style of photography they shoot.
Anyway, this is the link to the website, if interested in having a look - www.icmphotomag.com.
Single issue prices are $12, and annual subscriptions are $36…so basically, for an annual subscription, you get four issues for the price of three.
And each issue is 300 pages (150 spreads) or more. Quite a bit of content for the price, and all top quality.
