subscription of photography magazine
Wonder any fellow member here sign up monthly subscription for photography magazine?
Is it cheaper to subscribe then to purchase from our local bookstores?
Anyone can share their experience?

Photography magz are expensive. You can well borrow the old magz from the national
library. Anyway, shooting techniques never expire that fast.

thats true, but i happens to surf the net and realise that Outdoor Photographer mag and Popular Photography is having internet special offer

My understanding is that subscribing is cheaper.
There are many reasons to buy magazines. Learning techniques is only one of them.

Agreed with student, subscribing is cheaper.

Anyway, some magazines like Peterson's photography and Popular photography, the articles keep on repeat and repeat, years after years, so don't waste money on that kind of magazines.

I have 12 copies National Geographic of the previous year, Apr 2004~Jun 2005,
with some missing issues. Sell for $30. One can learn shooting pictures.

I think so far the best photography mags are the UK ones like Practical Photography and Photography Monthly....

They are far more other better photography magazines than these... but is depends individual liking.

just curious how does the mag reach your place?
thru mailbox? but i doubt it fits the size of the mag.
Also the subscribtion price is inclusive of postage right?

thru mailbox, yeah including delivery chArges. But be careful when you sign the
paper since the magazine subscription company may send you spams, for example
in my subscription, I made a typo in my name, and later I got my magazines
delivered in the wrong name, and also got letters for Hong Kong African Fund
donation, magic pills, and other stuff, all addressed to the same wrong name. Sigh!
I think I ticked some choices I didnt read carefully.
