      Try it out and see if it's what you're after!

      I have been reading Professional Photographer on and off over the past 3 years. Having previously read a few of the amateur photographer magazines I used Pro Photographer to help me in early days of my business.

      I have found that the magazine is mostly aimed at those transitioning from amateur to professional and have not experienced having to sell their work before. The magazine is more expensive than other photography ones but is respectable for a trade magazine at around £5.

      The magazine is a good source of news and it's fine for those who are happy to keep up monthly. One of the best parts of the magazine are the features on current affairs and these provide good discussion without bias on topics such as megapixels, attitudes in photography, promotion and stock & microstock photography. For those looking for in-depth debates then it's definitely worth considering.

      The magazine is also a good starting point for introducing some illustrious photographers with plenty of interviews and coverage of their careers along with lots of pretty pictures.

      Compared with amateur magazines you will find a much higher quality of photography and the tips will be designed to assist those working as a photographer. These might include topics such as workflow, post processing, new concepts for products instead of the more basic lighting techniques or exposure control found in other mags.

      If you have grown tired of the repetition of topics in other magazines and find that you are familiar with most of what is in each issue then I would suggest you consider a subscription to Professional Photographer.

      However, once you have read a years worth of this magazine you may find that similar topics appear each year and although the interviews change, there's not much else that's new.

      Professional photographer, as it's name suggests is aimed at the professional photographer, however this magazine is suitable for amateurs too. The magazine covers subjects including whats happening in the industry both financially and technologically, new ideas, galleries, and techniques. The magazine holds my intrest as it encompases opinions and information on a broad section of the photographic world. I find the product tests really interesting too, not only as a consumer, but from a learning point of view. Many people find advertising an anoyance in magazines.....I have to admit, I enjoy perusing them in Professional Photographer. They are well chosen and often informative. A Great publication!!!! Thumbs up :o)
