Cover photos: A mix of frustration and satisfaction

Mag cover
Getting good photos to include in our magazine is one of the most enjoyable parts of my job. There’s something about a great photo that excites me, and I always hope it creates a sense of interest for our readers and lets them enjoy our articles just that extra little bit. And an exceptional photo may pull in a few new readers from time to time, too.
