Nature Photographer Magazine

Nature Photographer is a “how–to” magazine,
published in print form three times a year covering all four seasons—Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. The Spring issue is published each March, the Summer each July and the Fall/Winter a larger combo issue each November. The magazine is intended for nature photographers and nature enthusiasts who range from beginners to professionals. We will help you channel your intense interest in nature photography into more successful trips into the natural world, whether they be for the day, weekend, holidays or vacations. This is the magazine for those of you interested in photographing the wilderness—in far-off destinations, in local parks or in your own backyard.

Nature photography is all about getting out there and being a part of our natural world. When in nature working on our photography, it is helpful to entirely immerse ourselves in what we are doing. To do that, we need to practice the techniques needed to consistently produce quality images and research the locations that will appeal to each of us the most. We at Nature Photographer hope to help you along that route with both the print magazine and this web site. We strive to showcase the Earth in the most beautiful light and to encourage everyone to be kind to the Earth and all life, including themselves. Our journeys will include:

  • How to photograph—from close-ups to wildlife to grand landscapes and seascapes.
  • How to use specialized equipment.
  • Detailed natural history information.
  • Field techniques.
  • New product information and equipment reviews.

Thank you very much,

"I wanted to say that one of the most outstanding features of your magazine, aside from the stunning photography, is the personal element in many of the articles.  I appreciate the freedom to express that you grant to your various writers.  Your magazine reveals the heart and how nature moves people, as it should.  It is truly a joy to read."
