TPW Magazine–A Picture Perfect Issue

Friday, December 18th, 2009

This is Passport to Texas

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the January issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine will speak volumes. Editor, Louie Bond, says 2010’s first issue will be a festival of photos.

And I don’t mean just a couple of extra photos. Instead of our regular features, and some of our regular departments, we’re having photo essays by our best photographers. We are so blessed with these great talents, so we’ve decided to showcase portfolios from our photographers. It’s just going to be, I think, a thing of great beauty, and we’re really excited about it. We do hope this will become a regular occurrence every January.

So this year, we’re featuring Wyman Meinzer, who will be having a collection of shy photographs. Rolf Nussbaumer, who’s really well-known for his animal photographs in the magazine. We’re having a little twist with him—he’ll be featuring flowers this time. Jesse Conselmo, who you might remember from our State of the Gulf issue in 2008 will be featuring all kinds of fantastic under the sea. Laurence Parent will be playing around with light in nightscapes, and Clive Varlack will be putting bugs under the microscope for us.

In addition, we couldn’t leave out our good guys. So, Earl Nottingham, our longtime photographer, will have some photos in there, as will Brandon Jakobeit, our photo editor. We’re hoping that you’ll take this issue and enjoy it in January and all through 2010.

Thanks Louie.

That’s our show… For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
