About Us

Welcome to the Photo District News (PDN) archive, a resource for photographers and the photography industry. PDN ceased publication in January 2020.

Photo District News, the award-winning magazine for the professional photographer, covered the professional photographic industry for more than three decades. Through its print magazine and website, PDN delivered unbiased news and analysis, interviews, and information photographers needed to succeed in a competitive photography market—from marketing and business advice to legal issues, photographic techniques, new technologies, and more. PDNOnline’s photo essays and galleries explored the work of many of photography’s masters and emerging talents.

This archive of content is being maintained by Emerald as a free resource for professional photographers, photography educators, the creative industry and photography lovers of all levels.
