Maxim Magazine and the History Channel

->> Maxim had an interesting section in this months issue about war photographers. I thumbed through the issue for only a few seconds at the airport, but it was interesting none-the-less.

Also, the History Channel just ran a documentary on "the Unsung Heroes of World War II" which was about the military photographers in the Pacific theater. It spent a large portion of the hour talking about the flag raising photo and presented a lot of information I never knew about the incident. It ought to be on again either tonight or later this week.

Thumbs up for both.

->> We LOVE the History Channel!!!

Though this will undoubtedly bring great wailing and nashing of teeth, ESPN had a pretty great NFL Films special on their camera and sound guys that was fun to watch.

Y'know, thinking of it now...Sports shooters (the still guys now) would make a great topic for ESPN's "Outside the Lines"...Just a thought.

->> You beat me to the punch Jason. I've seen Maxim once or twice (I borrowed Paul Cunningham's copies). I thought there was a lot more interesting stuff in there besides stories about war photographers. Thomas, you missed the good stuff. Perhaps you need you eyes checked.

->> Little known fact: One of the career highlites for legendary MLB Photo Editor (and SportsShooter.com member) Paul Cunningham was getting a photo published in Maxim.

Paul Cunningham, Photo Editor

->> No doubt, a "career highlite" for me. Maxim is a client of MLB photos and is very kind to send ONE copy of their fine magazine to us when they use photos. I had to lay a guilt trip on Pilling to let me have the issue with my photo. He grudgingly turned it over to me after he soiled it.

->> Paul:

Maxim is an interesting place to search for MLB photos

(Then again I covered the Patriots in '98 for the Discovery Channel Online, and ended having a flood rescue photo of mine run full page in the National Enquirer).

So were the ball players clothed in the photo??

->> HA HA HA HA HA!!! I knew I was setting myself up, but I had to mention Maxim...

You know, I actually think (and I'm not alone here) that Maxim has some cutting edge journalistic content from time to time. The Physter fish (spell check needed here) for example was a story they broke about 10 months before any other media outlet did.

though I'm sure that what ever I say about Maxim at this point is going in one ear, out the other, and straight into the crapper with most of you guys. :)
