If you already subscribe to Cameracraft, take out a subscription to f2 Freelance Photographer, and you will receive three bi-monthly editions of Master Photography free (worth £20.85). This offer applies to UK subscriptions only, with a postage cost of $7.75 for each 340 gramme edition applying to future issues we can’t match this offer for our worldwide readers. Email email@example.com after subscribing to claim this bonus.
When subscribing, please note the pull-down menu which shows UK, Europe, and World Zone prices. If you select the wrong region we will accept your subscription but only for the number of editions the payment is sufficient to cover.
You can also subscribe to our electronic editions (watch for further news) with f2 Freelance Photographer currently published on all major platforms. See our App Page for links.
f2 Freelance Photographer
Get our September/October 2014 blockbuster – 84 pages with a unique Scottish angle to mark the run-up to the Independence Referendum. Absolutely no propaganda – just Scottish photographers (wherever they’re working), photographers in Scotland (whether Scottish or not), photographs of Scotland… and plenty from the ‘rest of UK’ too! Place your sub before August 9th to get your magazine as soon as it’s off the press.
From the April 2014 edition ƒ2 has been published by Icon once again, with a fresh new look. Each issue is a minimum 68-page perfect-bound edition on heavy 150gsm silk paper, sealed, with 200 line screening and a matt laminated cover, costing £4.95 from your newsagent (order ISSN 1754-0615, distributed by Comag) or by subscription for £29.70 a year. This magazine is seriously different and simply much better than anything else you can buy at this price. It is 4 pence cheaper than Freelance Photographer first was when we launched it 15 years ago, and with the paper and print quality we use, you’d expect it to cost at least £2 more.

Master Photography is owned by Icon Publications Ltd and is published six times a year in an improved 68-page format similar to ƒ2. It is mailed to all members of The Master Photographers Association (MPA) and to our direct subscribers. The magazine has a cover price per issue of £7.95. We offer a discounted web deal price of one year subscription UK for £37.00, Europe/World for £49.00. This is, again, a premium quality magazine and very substantial.
Content: majors on portraiture and weddings, photography for profit as a career. Covers technical matters and gear relevant to this market. Profiles, award winners, business stories, management, legal, training, seminars, events. Recommended for freelances or professionals, aspiring professionals and students. Approx 440 pages per year.
Icon’s exclusive quarterly magazine, Cameracraft, is aimed at the camera system owner wanting to find new approaches or rediscover older values in image-making. We previously published a quarterly specific to Minolta (and in due course, Konica Minolta then Sony) system owners. Cameracraft is our replacement, and it’s not targeted at any single brand. We’re going further, to emphasise the quality of photographic vision and the close relationship between technical understanding and creative output. 176 pages per year. Optional binder (3 years per binder). Cameracraft is 44 pages and carries no advertising; it has a predominantly worldwide readership, not UK, and is printed to the highest quality compatible with reasonable postage costs (each issue costs $7.75 to post to the USA singly, and $4.25 when sent out with the main edition run).
We have a separate web page for Cameracraft which offers renewing one-year subscriptions in addition to single year subscription.
