Here’s some Gadling reader love from WetPixel Quarterly. Any Gadling reader that subscribes to the magazine will get the first issue (September, 2007) free and $5 off a yearly subscription. This slick publication is aimed towards folks who are interested in high quality underwater photography–whether you take photos yourself or you just love the ocean. WetPixel has been an on-line worldwide network for amateur and professionals for awhile, but the magazine fills another niche.
For those of you who love to pour over pages of gorgeous, glossy photos of the deep and stay abreast of the latest discussions about marine conservation and what-not, this is a magazine you will want to have arrive in your snail mail box four times a year. The premiere issue–September 2007 includes WetPixel’s World-Underwater photo contest winners, DEEP Indonesia photo contest winners and photos by Norbert Wu. This issue, the one pictured, is your freebie.
Norbert Wu’s photographs make me really hang my head in photo shame. He takes such wonderful shots underwater and I manage to take the worst picture of a bear from dry land that there ever was. Click here for a photo he took in Antarctica. Way high up on the Wow factor. You can buy Wu’s photos and others’ from the WetPixel Quarterly Web site. You can also submit your own.
