Icon Publications Ltd was founded in 1987 by David & Shirley Kilpatrick to publish photographic magazines and has done so ever since. Icon currently publishes Cameracraft only, having recently ended our involvement with the MPA for whom we created a magazine which we sustained to a very high standard as long as their membership was able to justify it.

PhotoclubAlpha is our website for owners of the Sony Alpha and former Minolta/Konica-Minolta camera systems

You can view and subscribe to on-line magazine editions here:

Pocketmags on-line apps and PDF downloads

We also operate Troubadour UK, our site for sales of musical instruments. Currently only the Xaphoon is offered by mail.

    I currently subscribe to your wonderful magazine f2. I am in need of more binders since the one that I have is full. How may I order more of them? I reside in the U.S.A.

      We print over 3000 copies, mail over 1000 UK subscribers and around 350 worldwide outside the UK, and send 1650 to UK newsagents. It’s not a large circulation magazine and given the price and the target market (advanced, freelance and professional photographers and students) it is never likely to be. Digitally, our app and page-turn versions can reach thousands more (worldwide) though it’s highly variable. Sometimes we include content like art nude which results in digital distribution being restricted. If you’re interested in promoting photo tours, we’re keen to have small regular ads (1/8th page) and not bigger splashes, we find that a regular small presence with click-through links on the digital editions repays those who support us more efficiently.
