Photography Magazine Recommendations?


Hi all. I want to subscribe to a good photography magazine for an amateur enthusiast. I have browsed through a few, but it seems like many are more full of ads than content. Does anyone subscribe to any photo magazines that are good on content?

  Don't subscribe to any, but sometimes I'll look at, or buy american photo if there's a picture or something in it that I like.

  My sister-in-law got me a subscruption to Popular Photography & Imaging for Christmas and I love it. I would never have bought it for myself, but now that I get it every month, I think I'll have to renew if she doesn't. :)

  Sometimes I find some good stuff in Peterson's PHOTOgraphic & Imaging. You can check out their website. Popular Photography & Imaging also has a website if you google their name or my personal favorite, yahoo search engine.

http://www.photographic.com/

Hope this helps out your search!

  It really depends on what your interest is in. I subscribe to Outdoor Photographer because I love nature photography. I think it is a great mag. and highly recomend it.

  I am not unbiased because I am a regular contributor to Shutterbug, but have the following comment.

Instead of counting the number of pages of ads, count the number of pages of content. The more pages of content, the better the value. (Assuming that you enjoy the content and find it meaningful.)

Ads support a magazine and a healthy publication should be better than one that is in trouble.

Numerous pages of ads may seem annoying, but if there are also numerous pages of (meaningful) content, the magazine probably offers good value.
