Sometimes you've got to go all the way when making your demands.......

Where else can a photographer EASILY post up a picture and get direct community feedback? Where else can you find a group of photographers whose work comes from the eye and the camera instead of a computer? Where else can photographers of ANY age have the ability to be "published" based on the quality of their work and not the sophistication of their schmooze?

The answer is JPG Magazine.

Let's save it people...stand up and be recognized!

Cast of Players:

"Hostage:" Nikon D-3

Knife by: Henckles

Model courtesy: Criminal-B-Me

Threat brought to you by:

Consortium to save JPG.

NOTE: This picture was posted back in the day when we were informed that JPG was going to fold. That should explain the outdated but nevertheless "awesomely funny" (according to the NY Times and Wall Street Journal) photo description above. Shortly after JPG was brought to life again, the D-3 was released...unharmed.

    Seems your demand worked out?....the nicest demand I ever saw (as a Canon man:)

  • Robert Case

    Robert Case said (8 Jan 2009):

    Thanks everyone for your "support" of my cause! Surely they know I mean business....(Espen - I had the option of taking a Canon camera hostage but figured it wouldn't be viewed as a big loss if I'm forced to take things to the ultimate level!)
    :-) .....easy Canon users, just a little Nikon vs. Canon fun there....!
