Our gorgeous black and white cover shot from analogue and vintage camera specialist Dave Shrimpton marks the fact that we’re celebrating all things silver halide with a special ten-page section in our latest issue, and it’s truly remarkable how a process many had considered bound for the museum has surged back over the past few years. We’re also catching up with rock star photographer Andy Summers, whose passion for his art is beyond doubt, with a major retrospective just opening at the Leitz Museum in Wetzlar, Germany.
Two major new series also kick off in this issue, as we begin a major six-part guide, in association with Sennheiser and CVP, that talks professionals through how to achieve outstanding audio content in their video productions. Our second exciting new regular feature is in association with MPB, and we’re offering readers of Professional Photo the opportunity to tap into this used kit specialist’s awesomely well-stocked warehouse full of gear to get hands on with some dream kit, whether that be an alternative format or, as in this inaugural feature, with a classic high-spec rangefinder camera, the Leica M10.
We’re also heading to a hide to test out the latest high speed, high performing new Fujifilm X-H2S, Lisa Devlin is sharing tips on how to move into luxe weddings and Paul Wilkinson is telling us how he shot his award-winning study of a sleepy puppy, where all is not quite what it seems. As always, we’ve got a veritable smorgasbord of stories to offer, so feel free to dive in and have a look around!
We all love the headline grabbing cameras and lenses, but often it’s the accessories that really make the difference, and a wide range can be found second hand at bargain prices.Read More

Book a free ticket off our page to go take a look! Salgado reveals the story behind what he sees as the most important project of his life, and tells how it took 48 trips to the region over a seven-year period to bring it all together. We’re also catching up with Martina Wärenfeldt, fresh from sweeping the board with her atmospheric imagery at the recent SWPP Convention, and she’s telling us how she arrived at her classical style and how it became her dominant way of working during the pandemic.
Also this month we’re talking to mobile filmmaker Cassius Rayner about the epic productions he’s shooting using a smartphone that could be the same as the one you have in your pocket, while we’re also kicking off two important new series in this issue. In Marketing Matters expert marketeer Alan Hutchison is talking about ways to free up your time so that you can focus more on growing your business, while we’re also going to be highlighting some of the most environmentally conscious professionals in the business in our new ‘Focusing on the Planet’ series, and we’re starting off by seeing how wildlife specialist George Benjamin is taking care to minimise his impact through a comprehensive series of green-aware initiatives.
Finally, our big review this month sees portrait specialist Andy Kruczek heading to the studio to try out Rotolight’s brand new line-up of lighting modifiers, including the innovative new Smartsoft Box, a variable electronic diffusion panel made possible through the use of cutting-edge technology. It’s our usual eclectic mix of brilliant stories, so dive in and take a look around!
