I want to buy a year's subscription to a UK photo magazine for my niece who's getting really keen on photography.

Trouble is ... I don't live in the UK so I can't browse through the bookstalls.

Can anyone recommend a good UK photo magazine for a keen beginner?

Thanks

How old is she?

My favourite is professional photographer mag - not just good for pros.

I find digital camera mag is full of awful articles that regurgitate the same rubbish every month.  It's VERY basic.

Thanks for those recommendations.

She's 15.

Isn't a professional magazine likely to be a bit advanced for her? I don't want her to be put off by too technical stuff.

Back in the analog era I used to read Practical Photography and I learned a lot from them.
Here is some more info:

I'd reccomend Photography Monthly. It's the sister magazine to Professional Photographer which Seren mentioned. However Professional Photographer has lots of business orientated content, so if your neice was looking to a career in photography that might be the one. They are both well written. Hope that helps, Regards, David

I'd go with that.  Photography monthly seems to be aimed at people who want to learn about photography.  Most of the "digital blah blah" are just full of ten minute half assed tutorials.

I'll second this one.  Lots of info plus tutorials (on CD) that are usefull and easy to use.

But I have to admit that I don't know the other ones suggested here...
