Professional Photo 161 Print
Our latest issue is something of a milestone, because in our 160-issue history it’s the first time we’ve been printed on sustainable FSC paper stock using vegetable-based inks. We’re also going out to
subscribers this month in bags made from potato and maize starch, and it’s own tiny contribution to the massive environmental issues we’re facing right now. All of which leads logically on to one of our main features this month, which looks at what it takes to run a green business and why it actually might not cost you that much more and could pull in customers who likewise care about the planet.
We’ve also got a remarkable deal to offer, where One Vision Imaging and Fujifilm have combined to deliver every reader a free large print on professional paper. Check it out and make sure you take part! We’re also seeing the launch in this issue of two exciting new competitions for Wedding and Portrait photographers, so again take a look and send us your best shots and I look forward to seeing them.
Finally, consider this: a full frame pro-spec camera for just £500: it’s possible, so read on and find out how you can find kit that really is that affordable.
Prepare to do battle!
We’re kicking off our separate wedding and portrait photography competitions in this issue and they promise to be highly competitive and a yardstick by which to judge your own abilities in these vibrant sectors. Free to enter and with a full line up of top judges and some great prizes to win, you have to be part of this! Full information inside and the announcement of the first two categories.
Pro Lighting Technique
Top portrait photographer Paul Wilkinson continues his unmissable lighting technique series with a look at how you can add drama with a touch of location lighting. As always he’ll be providing plenty of examples and walking through how each set up came together with the aid of the background story and a clear easy-to-follow lighting diagram.
Time to Go Green
It’s time to start thinking about how each of us can do our bit for the planet and we’re talking to a number of photographers who have put their money where their mouth is and who are actively cutting down on their waste and carefully sourcing the partners they work with. We also catch up with some ethical suppliers and show how a green outlook can also help you to attract clients who share the same principles.
See our own efforts to go green with our move to FSC managed paper stock and biodegradable film wrap.
Full Frame for under £500!
For the professional the idea of moving up to full frame is tempting but has previously carried a huge premium. Now, however, the vibrant second hand market is making it possible to find highly usable full frame kit for a fraction of the original price, opening the field up to a whole new audience. We check out three great cameras that can get you started and all for under £500.
