Australian Photography + Digital Out Now
The new Australian Photography + Digital will be available from 30 July.
magazine has merged with its sister publication Digital Photography + Design to
become Australian Photography + Digital. The new magazine, which can be purchased in newsagencies or at greatmagazines.com.au, combines the best columns and
features from both magazines with more pages, a larger page format and a bolder design.
The result of several months of planning, the August issue brings together the most popular columns and features from the two best-selling titles, including expert photography advice, step-by-step imaging projects, competitions, image doctor critiques, camera tests, buyers' guides and more.
Writers who feature in the new magazine include Frans Lanting, Mark Galer, Peter Burian, Prashphutita Greco, Anthony McKee, Andrew Fildes, Darren Leal, editor Robert Keeley and managing editor James Ostinga.
Australian Photography was first published in November 1950 and is one of Australia’s longest-running magazines. Digital Photography + Design launched in 1995 in response to the growing popularity of digital imaging. Over the years, as digital photography has become more mainstream, the need for two separate titles has diminished. The new merged magazine represents an opportunity to provide keen photographers with a single larger and improved monthly publication.
The first edition of Australian Photography + Digital features a spectacular Ken Duncan landscape on the cover.
