    Well that really sucks if, indeed, Mr. Jacobs has left AP :eek:

    Latest issue of AP dropped through the letterbox this morning;
    Art Editor : Sarah Foster

    No mention of Mark Jacobs :-(

    Shame. Pity we don't have a news bulletin now and then for the forum telling us of changes. Did the offices move? I so seldom see the mag in the shops, I'm unaware of fundamental changes.

    He was one of the brighter members of staff.
    I just hope he has moved on to better things, and pastures new.

    He is still down as the Art Editor in Wikipedia but that is not evidence as sometimes it is years out of date.

    or occasionally just wrong.

    However, I have it on good authority*...

    * ie, I just made it up...

    Yes, they relocated a few months back from central London to Farnborough (Hants), just down the road from me. They may get some good shots of aerobatics at the air show this coming week, but it could be that the move has caused commuting issues for some of their staff. Sadly I don't think I have the relevant skills to apply for any vacancies that may come up :-(

    You are correct, Catriona. Mark Jacobs was one of about five members of staff who chose to leave AP back in March when we relocated from London to Farnborough. Sarah was his Deputy and has now taken Mark's place. However, Mark did come back in to cover on a freelance basis recently when Sarah was on holiday.

    Is he on to a different photography magasine, Nigel, and, if so, are you at liberty to mention which one?

    Mark has been around AP for ages so I wondered if he had started to prepare for retirement. Whatever, he did a great job for the mag through many changes. My good wishes to him for whatever he is doing & chooses to do in future.

    Well thank you all.

    Suffice to say that I’m alive and well, and have been more than happy to have deputised for the last couple of weeks in the run up to the Farnborough Airshow. (It was LOUD!)

    For me.... Costa Rica calls. (It’s an ‘in joke’) Perhaps I'll make it. Perhaps I won't, but it'll be fun trying.

    It’s been great. Starting out at IPC/AP, freelance, I never expected to find myself there 20+ years later. Career twists and turns led me to such.

    The reason that I stayed so long was thanks to the great teams that I've worked with. The fact that we, editorial staff, contributors, and (most importantly) readers, are part of 132 years plus worth of (near) continuous publishing history.

    This seems a little special to me. Long may it continue. Best wishes to all.


    PS. Myk, Nick, Daftbiker, Lisa etc. (Nods towards David, Huw, Fen etc. etc. please bin this ‘ID’ It’s against forum rules… but accept my best wishes) MWAHHH!!!

    All the best, Mark :) and when you make your way to Costa Rica, going via Vancouver won't really take you a long way from
    your destination ;)

    Cheers and hope you pop in once in a bit :)
