After publishing our September article on Wetpixel, "Is Wetpixel Breaking Bad?" the owner, Adam Hanlon, emailed us requesting certain corrections. We asked him for permission to reprint his communication in its entirety so that our subscribers could review his comments on the article, but he refused to permit us to republish any portion of his email or letter.

"Unfortunately he did stop replying to our different attempts to contact way too soon.

"We did not say anything to our guests at the time of the trip, and only did so very recently. First wanted to give Adam a chance. We all go through good and less-good times; in times of difficulties, we should be able to face our industry friends and explain what is happening and commit to do better when the right time arrives. We are unhappy he did not fulfill his financial commitment,; we are disappointed about the fact he apparently decided not to reply our attempts."...
