Congratulations to...

Congratulations to Ron Leach. He got our sympathies recently when the magazine he edited since 1997, Petersen's PHOTOgraphic, was closed down by its parent company, Primedia (which also now owns Stereophile, among a number of other publications). I'm sure there were company politics behind the scenes that I'm not even remotely privvy to, but, whatever the circumstances, it can't be pleasant to have a ship go down when you're standing at the helm. Petersen's had been publishing for 33 years.

Nice to see, then, that Ron L. has found dry land again as Web Editor for Primedia's flagship photography publication, Shutterbug. (He's also an Associate Publisher.) So far, so good: take a look at the deluxe new site that launched recently. The main page features recent reviews by veteran photo-writers such as Dave Howard, David Brooks, and Joe Farace. Ron Leach even has a fledgling blog at the site, although it's new and there's not a lot of content there quite yet. But watch the space.
