Following up on his most recent lesson, entitled, "Shooting for the Epilepsy Advocate, Part I", renowned New York photographer Ian Spanier brings us his third WPS lesson, where the challenge was to help turn what was visually a mediocre magazine into a look that was more along the lines of a high-end "New York style" magazine, all with a tiny budget.

If successful, the job would be his four times a year, as well as impress the VP of the custom publishing division of Time, Inc.

In this lesson, Ian discusses the objectives and challenges he faced for photo-shoots in Halifax, Nova Scotia; Boulder, Colorado; and Seattle, Washington.
