Silvershotz History

Silvershotz was originally established in 1998 by David Bigwood in Australia. Known as the Black & White Enthusiast, the early photography journal provided articles and tips for those passionate about B&W film and darkroom.


The title was purchased by Clive Waring-Flood in 2002 and renamed Silvershotz in 2004. Design, printing and distribution was moved to Great Britain. Distribution increased to a 12,000 every 8 weeks and sales soared as the journal could now be found in 1400 bookstores in 17 countries. The last printed edition was November 2014 after a total of 470,000 copies distributed in 10 years.


2015 the streaming, dynamic content, interactive photography magazine was launched.
