Where did proper photo magazines go? There’s one still standing! Cameracraft is a substantial read with superb images and repro, not your typical lightweight consumer magazine. It’s not an obscure art fest either. Every two months it’s a shot of inspiration, with solid technical content, and it’s written by experts not interns.
Over a century since the original San Francisco Camera Craft, and almost thirty years since David Kilpatrick launched Icon Publications’ PHOTOpro, new Cameracraft sets a standard big commercial publishing groups just can’t match. It’s aimed at enthusiasts, freelances, students, aspiring and working professionals. The editorial team is based in Scotland, Ireland, England and California.
Cameracraft is not available in shops. It is mailed exclusively to subscribers, and since September 2017 has also been provided as one of the membership benefits of The Guild of Photographers with talented members like Gavin Prest whose cover and portfolio appear in the current edition.
Cameracraft is a top quality 84-page A4 magazine printed to art book quality with a matt laminated cover and perfect bound flat spine. Each magazine weighs roughly 350g and is 7mm thick. Posting a single copy by Royal Mail to many countries costs over £10. That’s why overseas subscriptions will always start with the next issue, sent to you via our international specialist magazine mail services straight off the press. UK subscriptions are all by Royal Mail and will start with the latest issue in print, or the next issue if due within three weeks.
