Letter To The Editor

I received this letter today from a Boy Scout here in Las Vegas.  I thought it was pretty funny and thought you'd enjoy it too! 

Dear Cindy Larkin,
I am writing to you so I can finish my Communications Merit Badge before getting my Eagle.  I understand that you are the founder, and one of the editors of Las Vegas Photographer magazine and blog.  It would be cool if you could answer my questions.


Sincerely,
BJL


How is it?  It's awesome!  I love collaborating with other photographers from around the world on special writing and photography projects.  I get to learn from many talented photographers, and in return I also get to share some of my own knowledge and ideas.       

What do you do as Editor?  As one of the editors here at LVP I get to read the articles submitted by other photographers before they are published.  I help gather the information and images, make sure our deadlines are met,  then proofread it for spelling and grammatical errors.  One of my favorite assignments that I share with Amy Leavitt, (my co-editor, contributor, and partner in crime), is creating the cover of the magazine.  I really enjoy the process and absolutely love seeing the finished product!  Getting to use the best images from a photographers portfolio to create a beautiful masterpiece, makes our job so much fun! 
 
Do you have to sit there for hours looking at pictures?  -I think that would be really boring.   Yes, we sometimes sit for hours at a time looking at pictures and deciding which ones to use for the cover, but I'd have to say that we really like doing it!  It inspires us to see other photographers best work and to read about the story behind the photographs.   

Do you get to have your own pictures in the magazine?  Yes, as the founder and contributor, I get to be as creative as I want to be.  I love sharing my work and my ideas, but mostly we try to feature and highlight other photographers masterpieces.  Learning from others is what makes the world of photography go 'round, and we really enjoy having photographers submit articles, tutorials, and photo sessions, that they've done just for our blog.
