    When in the magazine,an in depth review and test is done on a camera it`s invariably accompanied by illustrative photos,usually of a female,sometimes male,sometimes the author of the piece.I can recognise Mat Gallagher and Tim Coleman.

    I`ve always assumed these individuals to be AP staffers but they`re never credited.
    It may well be that their identity is irrelevant to the content of the feature but OTOH it would be nice to put a name to the face.:p:)

    The people who write the reviews'n'stuff do tend to be AP Staffers. Normally the name of the person is either at the start of the article of at the end of it.

    They do sometimes have external people write something (like Mr Hicks).

    I've met pretty much all the staff for AP... Is there anyone particular you want to know?

    No not really Fen.I`m just curious.You say they are credited somewhere but I`ve not noticed.

    I`ll look closer if that`s the case.

    Damn,was it that obvious?:eek::D

    Unless otherwise credited photographic models are company acquaintances, friends etc.

    I had the dubious honour of appearing as a model for - no, not a Toby Jug potter - a fine photographer, writer, and gentleman, Jamie Harrison, one time of this parish. ;)

    and unless otherwise stated, all images are taken by the author.

    I get a bit of stick in the office for taking on the role of both author and 'model' all too often. When it comes to cheap, it doesnt get any cheaper than free!

    Very funny thread by the way guys
