You may have come across this one - Nov 2009 issue.
Can this be one that Csers find interest to support?

Support as in buying? Or contributing?

More important is in supporting with
whatever expertises you have and the
rest of the tale will take care by itself.

Content is king in any magazine and
must cater to its intended audience.

When just one percentage of CS members
contribute there is no way a fool could not
see its potential.

It's usual personal selfishness that
all such startup photo magazines suffer.

Good luck to them but looking at the cover it seems to be doing what I've warned against.

An article on commercial photography, with nothing distinctly Asian highlighted on the cover anyway.

A technique article. A technical article. And a technical review.

There's nothing uniquely Asian about it on the cover anyway. I don't know if the 25 years thing in the top right means it's been going for 25 years or if that refers to some other organisation.

And personally - this is personal opinion only - but I find the layout/design a bit average, to put it politely. This being, in comparison to any magazine I'd buy off the shelf over here.

If it's been going for 25 years then well done and long may it continue if it hasn't been sugar daddied. Be interesting to hear how many in Singapore have heard of it before.

no offend, I don't read some photographic magazines anymore,

they either doing all the lens and camera reviews all day long, that is very good to all the gearheads.
or keep recycle all the basic photography 101 articles.

reading too much of such magazine is guarantee of henta kaki on photography.

I saw this magazine in Borders and it's crap. The only photography centric Asian magazine i've really liked so far is Asian Geographic due to the quality of their photographs.. But don't get me started on the bad reputation they have among a number of photographers for non-payment/ delayed payment.
