Getty launches glossy Edit for photographers

Getty Images has launched a magazine for photographers and creatives called Edit, writes Ruth Addiccott.

The 98-page A5 glossy hopes to feature a range of photography issues while striking a balance between editorial, creative and film.

It will feature photography from the US elections to issues facing photographers covering the Olympics.

The launch follows the success of Taxi, a biannual magazine published by Getty Images until January 2004.

Editor John O’Reilly said Edit would retain the creative visual analysis of Taxi. He told Press Gazette: “Taxi magazine was a bit of an experiment but we got a lot of good feedback and coverage and discovered it was a good way of communicating with people.”

“Edit is all about covering the issues that matter as well as issues around the meaning of photographs, journalistic ethics and rights.”

Edit is currently sold on a quarterly basis through Getty Images’ official website but the agency is hoping to widen distribution to the news-stand.

O’Reilly said the magazine would set itself apart from existing titles by its breadth of coverage.
