Receiving emails and submissions from our readers is one of my favourite parts of being the LPM editor. Every month we receive hundreds of breathtaking images through our website submission form – and every month there are those that still take my breath away, even after 5 years of sitting in the editor’s chair.
I received an email recently from a reader whose work we recently published. It was wonderful to read of the feedback they had subsequently received from fellow photographers and the encouragement and boost this had given them to continue and grow their passion.
It took me back to the years before LPM and before my workshops, when I too was a photographer with ambitions and goals and struggled to find a publication that would help and support me. It was this very need that first planted the idea for LPM in my mind and is still the basis for LPM today - to support and promote photographers of all ages from around the world. We are proud to be a part of this and promise you, our readers, to continue doing it.
