Does anyone have a recommendation for a good photography magazine?
It´s like saying "What´s the best car to buy?"
What´s your level of experience?
What kind of photography are you interested in?
Digital or traditional?
Colour or black & white?
Where do you live?
I always recommend National Geographic. It always has first rate photography.
Ah I suppose I should have clarified a bit. I guess that's what I get for trying to sneak in an email at work. I am a beginner freelance photographer looking for tips and to learn as much as I can! I have a Canon 20D. Essentially I am looking for a good mag that can teach me tricks of the trade and Photoshop tips would be handy too!
Well, I never really read a photography book, but isn't this what books are for, and not magazines?
Just go for the Photoshop User mag.
It's not a photography mag though.
Photoshop is such an involved application that simple tips from a non-photoshop magazine wo'n't really cut it in that area.
The UK publishes a number of magazines I really like. My favorite is 'Digital SLR Photography' closely followed by 'Digital Photographer'.
I also like 'Practical Photography' (also from the UK) and "Popular Photography' (from the US).
Hope this helps.
Personally I like Outdoor Photographer and Lens Work. I do also get Layers and Photoshop User since they are 'sort' of related, but personally I don't think Photoshop User is as consistently good as it used to be.

It´s probably easier, faster, cheaper and more specific to google what you want to know...
Ahhh but you can't read Google in the bath or bed.....well maybe you could
Three of my favorite photo magazines are:
B&W (I'm running ads in that publication for my black and white work)
Hope that's helpful
