30 Amazing Online Photography Magazines

Whatever country we live in, we’re probably all familiar with the well-known photography magazines available in our newsagents and bookstores. The UK has Practical Photography, France has Photo, the Italians have Zoom and the Americans have American Photo. What you may not know is that there are many more photography magazines that are only available online. And some of them are good, very good. [Content Care Nov/22/2016]

That’s the great thing about online publishing. It’s cheap, it’s easy, and just about anyone with a PC and an internet connection can take part. The difficulty lies in putting together a quality publication, something that rivals the best commercial magazines for content and quality (we hope you think that Smashing Magazine just does that!)

You may want to take a look at the following related posts:

As an introduction to the wonderful world of online photography magazines, we put together a list of the biggest and best that we could find. You won’t find these magazines in your local bookstore, they’re only available online. From photojournalism to portraiture, from landscapes to lomography (and everything in between), you’ll find the most amazing photography and discover the work of some of the world’s best photographers, both famous and unknown. Dive in and enjoy their work.

    Thank You for this Great List.

    I know about a few of these sites. This list list will surely be a great inspiration to many.

    A great list, but to leave LensWork ( off the printed or web list borders on criminal (not seriously, but you get the point). Not only is the photography excellent, but the magazine it is exquisitely printed, the ‘Extended’ DVD issues have even more content and thoughtful interviews with the photographers. The website has the best podcasts/commentary on the fine art photo world going. Check it out.

    nice magazines … look here …
