Bird Art & Photography Magazine

I’m very sad to report that Bird Art & Photography magazine has been closed with immediate effect.

Bird Art & Photography was a great showcase for wildlife artists and photographers. It not only gave us a platform for showing our work but gave wildlife art lovers an insight in to sketching methods, working environments, wildlife art styles and exhibition opportunities.

Thankfully the sister publication Birdwatch is still going strong and will take on some of the best loved features of Bird Art & Photography. Wildlife art enthusiasts will still have a voice, albeit a quieter one.

I hope that a wildlife art magazine will be viable in the future when economic conditions are more favourable. Unfortunately, in the present climate, magazines are a luxury item that are easy meat for those looking to economise. The timing rather than the concept is the problem for this magazine.

    Afternoon Jackie, I returned from teaching and ‘Residence’ to both your blog and the ‘official’ notification of the demise of Bird – Art & Photography. I have to agree that it leaves a vacuum for us all, a great pity. Especially as it was getting more versatile, informative, illuminationg and entertaining as each edition arrived. Many of us at Nature in Art were speaking of your personal success and the admirable article of your studio and working process within the magazine. So many congratulations on that too. All the best, David.

  2. Thanks, David. I was really pleased with the Bird Art & Photography article – Katrina managed to say all the things I hoped for without me having to prompt her. I really like the way she writes. Hopefully BA&P will be resurrected in the future when the economic climate is a little more favourable.
