You might do a double-take when you see the cover of the latest issue of Professional Photo. Yes, that really is the iconic image of Brigitte Bardot, shot by Terry O’Neill, but we bet this will be the first time you’ve seen it in colour and we report inside on how it was meticulously worked on to create a image that has a very different feel. Elsewhere, we’re catching up with cycling specialist Alex Broadway who is telling us how sport made him fall back in love with photography, we’re hearing how Yellow Cab driver Joseph Rodriguez learned his photojournalist trade back in 70s New York through photographing the passengers on his back seat and a line-up of top pros tell us how they developed their personal ‘look,’ with the help of a little post-production preset magic. Our brand-new Pro Academy feature, in conjunction with the Nikon School, will give you the opportunity to challenge yourself across a range of genres and to earn a certificate as proof of your efforts, we’re explaining why live streaming is fast becoming a revenue-earner for professional photographers and Gillian Devine tells us why helping local businesses to develop their brand can be big and hugely enjoyable business. Also don’t miss our reviews of the exciting new Panasonic GH5 II and the brand-new hybrid SW271C monitor from BenQ, that is equally at home whether it’s stills or motion you’re working on. As you can tell, it’s another jam-packed issue, so dive in and take a look around!Read More
