I have no time for Will Cheung at the best of times, and have now terminated my subscription to P.M., but I was totally disgusted by his two-line, dismissive report of Dan Lezano's leaving the magasine in the latest issue.
He would do well to remember that Dan started & made the magazine. I thought that it was a great mistake for Archant to recruit Cheung, and of course we saw the immediate departure of David Corfield. How long before he drags an excellent mag down to the level at which he left Practical Photography?

maybe he has been watching too much x-factor and thinks that pm is in need of a mr bad guy lol
I once said "hello" to Willy Cheung. In person.
I once saw him in Papa Joe's, in Cologne (during Photokina). Didn't say hello, cos I was well gone.
I've never seen him in real life.
Sorry, just felt like adding that. lol
From what i've seen he just does the whole Simon Cowle thing, slags it off but provides no guidance for improvement.
What were the two lines then (it will save me buying the magazine).
He might have left PP in a state but its gone a long way down hill since then
I think the best magazine now is Digital Camera. The price is right, and lots of things to read. I have stopped buying PM and PP. And Digital Photo is going down hill as well.
Bought PM at the weekend, and was also surprised by the way Dan Lezano's departure was handled. My own opinion is that it will be a bad move if Mr. Cheung stays in that hot seat.
Personally I think PP has never recovered since Big Willy left. And just recently, I've felt that both PM & PP's features seem to be so strikingly similar these days. Both seem to have a total obsession with landscape photography. There is nothing wrong with landscape photography, but do we have to have it every month? There are other types of photography that could be covered. I just feel that both mags seem to be running out of ideas.
The only mag that I really looked forward to was Digital Photographer magazine, but that went down the pan a few months ago. Someone did say it had been taken up by another publisher, but I still haven't seen it on the shelves yet.
Isn't Pete still a contributor to Photography Monthly?
Yes - well, last time I looked, anyway. (February, I think.)
Yup, I agree about how disrespectful he was in dismissing Dan's leaving.
Also, the other fella who does the critique this week is a complete fool. He clearly thinks his brief is to simply destroy every photo without any positive feedback whatsoever....... a very poor magazine PM is turning into.....
I hardly buy any photography mags anymore - spend all my time here : )
They still print magazines on photography??
