As the Managing Editor/Chief Photographer for the Latino Bikini Life magazine, I’m happy to welcome you to the first branch of Australia’s #1 Swimsuit magazine: Australian Swimsuit Edition. Originally before becoming the LBL mag, we were known as the Latino Project, an inside section in the ASE magazine. It was done that way because we tried to introduce the beauty of the latin girls to our Australian readers. But as good as it gets, we needed to give this “section” a life of it’s own, and that’s how on November 2013, we become the Latino Bikini Life magazine.
It’s been a little bit more than a year with this new identity, and our magazine has been honoured to publish incredible models either as cover models and featured models. Real life and everyday models that work hard and that deserve to be published is what you see in our pages. Our models are not meant to be “perfect”, they are simply talented, gifted, hard workers, and incredible beautiful. Thru our pages you will be able to read more about them, learn what they had to do to succeed in the business, where they want to be doing in the future and how they stay in shape.
Early 2014 we added a new column by Catherine St.Pierre, where every month she will be giving tips and hints on routines, diets, etc., so our readers can look great. Also, Marcela Sandoval and Alejandro Anguiano joined the ship and became accredited photographers.
Along the year we have made some changes in our logo, in the magazine look, and some other details, so whenever you read our magazine, you can really appreciate all the good and hard work the team members have done and get involved in the concept and identity of our publication.
I know there’s a lot of work to do before we become “world” known, but step by step we are getting to every spanish speaking country and getting new readers every month. There are minor issues to be solved but I look forward for the great adventures we will find on the road ahead. It’s an honor to be working with my Senior Editor, Peter Rollans, who has trusted me this magazine. It’s been 17 regular issues, 1 special edition and 1 calendar coming up for this 2015 and more than 8k downloads per month of our magazine, with plenty of hours spent to build this mag, yes, sometimes with delays but with the only goal in mind that is to deliver a great magazine you will enjoy reading month after month.
There a big plans and more surprises for this 2015, on the meanwhile, I invited our readers to join our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/LatinoBikiniLife, visit our Youtube Channel with some cool promo videos with our cover models: https://www.youtube.com/LatinoBikiniLife and mostly, give us your feedback, wich is the most important tool we can have to improve our magazine.
2015 is around the corner and behalf the crew of the LBL magazine, we wish you the best expecting every month to be read by you. Happy New Year.
