Issue 7 is live!

To branch out means to extend outward, whether in the framework of a tree grasping for the warmth of a January sun, or as seen through the lenses of our industry's top photographers. We bathe in a bright opportunity for the amazing photographers who share stories in images and capture now forever with their pictures.

In this (ad free!) 386 page issue, Rock Star of Photography Jerry Ghionis dazzles us with a sizzling slice of life; Anna Kuperberg shares why photography may well go to the dogs; Jay Reilly trades on the photo stock market; Susan Stripling discusses romantic destination weddings in a way that makes even us say "I do"; Marci Ralph takes ‘senior' citizens to new heights with high school photography; the Boudoir Divas share insights into the ‘secrets' of Victoria. Anne Ruthmann instructs how networking keeps her on her ‘tweet', Laura Novak and Sarah Petty's knowledge of increasing photography revenue is an article to bank on for success. And, learn about the world of commercial photography with Rachel Devine and take a peek into Adele Reding's gorgeous studio.

With this, we welcome you to Issue 7 of Design Aglow: Branching Out. To see a full table of contents, click here.

May 2009 exceed your expectations for health and happiness and be blessed with the wealth of friends, opportunity and good fortune,

The Design Aglow Team
