The 5 Best Photography Magazines

Posted Friday, May 11, 2018   |   961 views   |   Art & Photography   |   Comments (0) Here at pocketmags.com, we have the 5 best photography magazines to inspire and inform your skills and get you snapping away with your beloved camera of choice!

Click, snap, flash and abracadabra - a moment in time is turned permanently still. It’s the type of magic that lasts a lifetime, the kind that can capture a thousand words into one single image. This sorcery is what we know to be as the creative act of photography - a way of seeing and capturing the world through the lens of a camera.


With the right angle, a focused lens, steady hand, a bit of patience and the click of a button, real, raw and stunning images are brought to life. The beauty of photography is that it holds no boundaries - it can be as free as simply saying “cheese” or as restricted as centering in on a specific focal point.


For the pro, aspiring or passionate photographer, here at pocketmags.com, we have the 5 best photography magazines to inspire and inform your skills and get you snapping away with your beloved camera of choice!
