About Photographer Henry Hargreaves
Henry Hargreaves has come a long way from his native New Zealand, working as a high-end fashion model in Europe for four years before deciding to professionally pursue his passion for photography from behind the camera. Henry moved to Brooklyn in 2004 and has since then established himself as a still life, art, and fashion photographer, working with commercial clients such as Ralph Lauren and New York Magazine, and producing personal projects, like 3D Celebration of Breasts and 3DD Deluxe, books both published by Seven Footer Press. In his own words, Henry’s empowering body of work is based on a “desire to see how photography can illuminate the world and spark conversation.” It is in this vain that Henry’s artful tribute to the female form offers full-frontal support for breast cancer research and will certainly get people talking.

When & Where
Resource appeals to everyone and anyone coming in contact with the photo production industry: photographers, stylists, producers, models, agents, model makers, set designers, set builders, art directors, art buyers, creative directors, publicists, retouchers, digital techs, modeling agencies, and assistants hoping to make it big one day...jobs within the photo production field are filled by men and women of all ages, but it is swelling with an aflluent, hip, urban crowd.
What more could one ask for than a concentrated readership of highly creative professionals that lead the industry through the jungle of photo production?
Our target readership works in the industry and is keenly aware of what is happening. They are paying more attention to magazines than regular folks. Not only do we like magazines, but we make them!
TURNING ON THE INDUSTRY
With this thriving industry of photo production professionals and their alluring sub-culture, there is much to write about. Until now, you and me and that photo assistant over there had never seen a publication for us! We make it, produce it, build it, style it, and shoot it...now we ARE it!
Resource Magazine is distributed freely in major photo studios and industry related locations throughout New York City in three of the boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. Everyone involved in the industry passes through studios at some point, many do so daily. Resource's distribution gives the targeted audience an opportunity to pick up a copy and flip through it while on a shoot. they can even take it home, still free of charge, and read it more thoroughly at their leisure and then share the Resource experience with others. This outreach of the magazine gives way to more exposure of the pages covered with articles, photographs, and, potentially, your ad.
There are 20,000 copies distributed to over 100 studios, labs, equipment rental and prop rental locations. that should be plenty of reading material for the estimated 4,000 potential readers walking through the stuio's doors each day. Numbers indicate that within every month there are 100,000 potential readers from studio traffic, adding up to about 300,000 per quarterly issue. this number only encompasses those walking in and out of our distribution areas, surely there will be many more who will get to flip through the pages at home.
Resource has already found out that their readers have expanded to national and even international territories, just by word of mouth and the natural pass along rate of our magazine. But there are very near plans to go national, so keep your eye out for Resource around the country. We might just get your word out farther than you expect!
