First Words

February is going to be a great month. I know it. Not only because it’s the month of my birthday, but this year, many other people will be able to cele- brate their birthdays on the 29th. Happy birthday to all of you.

With every new month, I get to come up with some pretty cool topics for our writers, photogra- phers and readers, to write about. It’s one of my favorite things as the chief editor. The other thing I really love is to put everything together into one big and beautiful piece of art, every month. See- ing the magazine coming to life is really satisfying. I feel lucky, and I want to thank you all – our photographers, writers and readers – for that.

For Our Special Edition – we got you the best deal in the world for the best workshop in the world with one of the best portrait photographers in the world, Sean Archer Photography. If you Google him you’ll immediately find stunning portraits of beautiful models. You’ll know it’s him 😉

As part of our special edition issue we got Sean Archer to give you a live workshop that usually costs about $300, for a lot less. You won’t find it anywhere else! If you’re already familiar with his work you and want to know his secrets, don’t wait for too long. Get the special edition issue before it’s gone!

This month, we have a few awesome prizes for you and we would love to gift them to the winners.

Photo of the Month contest – A monthly contest where one photographer, who is a member of our NOTINDOOR Facebook group gets: his/hers photograph published in our magazine on a full spread (and is the first picture in the magazine issue), publication on our magazine website, a pinned post in our Facebook group, a shout out to our email subscribers and $200 in cash prize! To find out who’s the this month’s winner you’ll have to flip through the pages.
