olume four! The final volume of the 2011 Swimsuit Edition. It seems just like yesterday we were pumping out Volume 1. A great way to watch a month of your summer blow by in a heartbeat? Publish a weekly magazine during that month. No complaints, however. It was a lot of work, but it was also a lot of fun. Especially reading all the messages and comments from people dying to know when the next volume is scheduled to publish. It was also great seeing the excitement online from those who made it into the magazine and sharing that excitement with their friends and family. It’s a very rewarding feeling. The entire effort did not go without a few mishaps. Volume 3 provided us with some first day launch issues that were quickly corrected, but not before some embarrassment made itself evident. For those who were directly affected, we apologize for the errors. On the other hand, we really appreciate the speedy feedback to get the two issues resolved. It is situations like these that make me a firm believer in remote publishing.

Problems can quickly be resolved before a single copy is printed. As for the strange looking person in the Editor’s Note photo, that is obviously not a photo of me. I have a reputation of posing for goofy photos, but this shot of Todd Brown taken by Les Gadula is just too goofy not to print. All kidding aside, this attire is one way an assistant can prepare for a long day at a beach in the [Santa] Cruz and not walk away with a red forehead, neck and nose. Yes, Menace is fair skinned, but dedicated, and obviously not concerned about his appearance. It was, however, the bright colored towel that got us in trouble with State Park Rangers and almost kicked off the beach the day of a fairly large shoot. Thankfully we live in a time and place where people are not judged by the fashion they choose to wear (inserts tongue in cheek). Ok, so the Swimsuit Edition is wrapped for the year. The regular Fall edition is publishing the first part of October! It is being delayed a month due to the Swimsuit Edition’s time and effort. Also, the Snap Matter Calendar for 2012 is coming soon. Stay tuned!

ON THE COVER Photographer Janelle Rodriguez, and model Stacey Scott represent the East Coast for the final cover of the 2011 Swimsuit Edition. Both Stacey and Janelle are residents in New York, and they have worked together on more than one occasion. Congratulations to all the cover winners this year. We’re already looking forward to doing this again next year!
