Hi all,

Just wondered what everyone's favorite UK magazines are and why? I pick up a few magazines willy nilly when I am dragged around the supermarket by the GF but thought I might subscribe to one or two.

Mainly looking for advice, tutorials and ways to improve my photography - I quite enjoyed Pratical Photography this morning. Also like reading about other photographers work - something to aspire too!

Look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Thanks

Joe

I used to get them every month, but they start repeating themselves after a while, so I don't really get any mags any more.

they pretty much seem worthless....not enough substance but lots of advertisement and more on how to manipulate and photoshop an crappy photo.


No I'm not a photographer, I just shoot with Canon DSLR with those lenses with red thingy...;)

I only saw one page of photoshop in practical photography this morning (i am reading an old April edition I found)

I agree with all the advertising - this is same for all magazines now though - in mens health you have 15 adverts til you get to the index!

Agree - Some of them seem to be 'influenced' by certain manufactureres or retail outlets as well IMO.
I occasionally buy one if there is an article inside that interests me.

That is now my only reason as well unless they are doing a spectacular subscription offer (a £45 Kata shoulder bag for a subscription that cost £50 is one i have taken in the past - I figured I was bound to get £5 of value out of the years subscription):lol:

I am actually looking at some of the mags trying to figure out what is going to give me the best freebie for the upcoming year!

I guess they must make the majority of their subscription on advertising cause they can't make much with the freebies!

Magazines make their profit on advertising, subscriptions cover their costs - thats the rough model anyways!

Yep, they all start going over the same ground eventually.

I think that answers my question then - unless I find an amazing subscription offer - only buy them as and when I see good content in them
