è Photo Life magazine is trying a newsstand distribution test.

Terri DeRose, circulation director at Camar Publications, says Photo Life is trying The Globe and Mail’s shift into magazine distribution and giving it about a six-month trial.

The Globe recently announced its distribution arm would handle titles it does not own.

DeRose says the Globe’s distribution will mean better newsstand targetting for Photo Life, and will more than triple – to more than 800 – the number of outlets in which it appears across Canada.

She also says the test will allow faster tracking of sales results.

This new distribution deal is in addition to Photo Life’s current newsstand distribution at Mac’s Milk convenience stores and specialty book shops.

Photo Life appears eight times a year. As well as that title, Camar Publications also publishes such titles as Canadian Workshop, Canadian Gardening and Snow Goer.
