    Default Anyone here subscribe to Photographic Magazine??

    I subscribe to Photographic magazine some time back, till now i only received 2 issues( suppose to get 12 issues for a year's subscription) However they have cease publishing and Dec 05 is the last issue. But i suppose to get 10 more issues for my subscription!!!

    Tried email them and their replies is:

    Dear PHOTOgraphic subscriber:

    Due to the rapid pace of change in the world of photography, we have
    made the difficult business decision to cease publishing
    Petersen's PHOTOgraphic magazine after the December 2005 issue.
    This change will allow us to focus all of our time, energy, and
    resources to continue the evolution and enhancements of Shutterbug magazine.

    Visit us at www.shutterbug.com to subscribe.

    Contact us at photographic@palmcoastd.com should you require further
    assistance.

    Sincerely,
    XXXXXX


    I tried sending them another mail and ask for compensation/replacement issues which i have yet to collect. Guess what! i got exactly the same reply as above

    To be honest, don't subscribe magazine like Petersen's or popular, the articles are recycle every 12 months. You get sick of reading it after awhile.


    There are some other magazines are more specialize into certain areas, but are very expensive, subscribe this kind of magazines, is still the best way and more economical than buying from book stores.

    did u subscribe thru a local agent or directly with them? if u did it directly, sad to say, ur $$$ might be as good as gone...

    i subscribed thru a local agent and went thru a few merry-go-rounds with them b4 they changed my subscription to shutterbug. i'll not renew my subscription of shutterbug after its lapsed. not really worth it, IMO.
