New look mag, brand new website

The last few months have been very busy for me. Firstly I had to do a redesign of my magazine, WPT Poker. My colleagues and I have produced a more focussed product aimed at the established poker playing community. We've added far more input from professional players, giving the reader far more chance to immerse themselves in the practice and atmosphere of cardroom mentality.The look of the magazine

We recently went to a recording session of a Pokerstars televised event. We had a bundle of these copies

Slightly later in the month than I'd like - here's my ad for the day job: Rake it in this issue with our cover star Humberto Brenes. He's the cheeky chappy that brings big tournaments to life with his outlandish cries of "I'm all-in!". Also the cover has some minor poker celebrity in the form of jail-bound Paris Hilton. She featured in the WPT Celebrity Invitational in LA and we have all the highlights.Features

Image manipulation

Here's a job where I had to come up with an image for a feature about poker variance. Each element in this image was shot separately. This wasn't on purpose they just happened to be stock shots that I had in my library that fitted the bill. I think I've managed to piece them together fairly seamlessly. The bullet holes are an added element in Photoshop.

A trip to Cardiff doesn't normally fill me with joy, so when Ian, my editor, suggested a photoshoot there I didn't exactly whoop for joy. However it was to meet up with a guy called Antonio Esfandiari. He met us whilst filming a TV event and was very willing to entertain our ideas for the shoot. Anyway our photographer, Jesse Wilde, bagged a whole sackload of shots for us to work with. Once I'd chosen
