About


What is Loupe? 

Loupe is a free photography magazine widely available across the UK. Launched in 2016 and now published on a bi-annual basis, we have become known for featuring a diverse range of contemporary photography. Over the years we have built a loyal following and we now need your help to make Issue 10 (our first themed edition), the best and most widely available to date! 


What makes Loupe unique?

  • We spend time discovering new talent – we don’t just feature established names and competition winners. A lot of the work has never been featured in print before and goes on to be featured by other publishers.
Loupe has featured some of the most exciting new photographers from around the world
  • We have a large print run; this provides inspiration to many and great exposure for the photographers we include in each issue.
  •  We also send each issue to leading figures in the UK photography industry, putting our featured photographer’s work in front of those best placed to kick-start a career.
  • We are available for free! What’s not to like about that? A massive thank you to our amazing stockists!
  •  We support up and coming talent! This year we launched the free to enter and fully funded Another Graduate Show open call, giving recent graduates a platform to exhibit their work at the Brick Lane Gallery.
Loupe Another Graduate Show at Brick Lane Gallery
  • We support our readers; we are genuinely interested to hear from you, many of our articles are based on reader submissions. We are also always happy to promote reader events and news.

Issue 10

We are so excited to bring you Issue 10 of Loupe – it’s going to be our first themed issue. In response to current events we have picked the weighty topic of National Identity. We really want to celebrate photography’s ability to document and tackle subjects that matter. Thank you to everyone who submitted – keep an eye on this Kickstarter campaign for sneak peaks!

 *please note this is a work in progress cover*

Issue 10 specs:

 64 pages  / 275 X 200 mm /  (portrait ) / 80 gsm uncoated paper / staple bound

Why we need your help

A small but dedicated team work extremely hard to make each Issue of Loupe. We are passionate about keeping Loupe in print but in this digital age it has become increasingly challenging. We do have some amazing advertisers but many brands simply no longer have print budgets. 

Without your support, we simply don’t have the budget to keep Issue 10 available for free. If those of us who can afford to pitch in, it will enable a much wider group of people to enjoy the magazine.

Where will your money go?

 The money raised will cover 3 major costs: printing, distribution  and paying our writers. 

Rewards

In collaboration with friends of the magazine we have brought together a range of amazing rewards! 


 All C - type prints provided by Bayeux 

 *Please note that in-person rewards do not include transport or accommodation*

All rewards above 'donation' level include a listing on our online supporter’s page. Rewards over £40 also include a listing on the supporter’s page that will be included in the printed version of Issue 10.

Issue 10  

Most rewards include a copy of Issue 10. Just like picking it up from a stockist this copy is provided for free as a thank you for supporting the Kickstarter. We know copies can run out quickly from our stockists and we wanted to make sure that those of you backing the Kickstarter are guaranteed to receive the very thing you are supporting! However, if you would rather have the thrill of picking up a copy from your local stockists you can opt not to be sent a copy.

Please note for in-person rewards such as the portrait sittings with Tif & the portfolio review with Rosie you will be able to collect your copy of Issue 10 in person.

Print rewards will be sent rolled in a tube with Issue 10 sent separately.

Extras

Do you want some of our  merch that wasn’t included in your reward level? Have no fear! All being well, we plan to have following items purchasable individually via a pledge company external to Kickstarter  – these options will present themselves at a later date after you have backed one of the Kickstarter rewards.

· Physical copies of issues: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 ( 1 – 4  remain sold out and are unavailable outside of the back issues reward level ) 

· Digital copies of issues 1 – 10

· Loupe pin badge

· Tote bag

· Postcard set

Risks and challenges

This is not our first rodeo! To date we have successfully delivered 9 issues of Loupe, we have all the content for Issue 10 confirmed and the team is hard at work producing the articles. All we need is the funds raised from this Kickstarter and its business as usual!
