One of the big­gest chal­lenges many of us face as pho­tog­ra­phers has noth­ing to do with com­po­si­tion, cam­era set­tings and the like, and ev­ery­thing to do with find­ing the time to pur­sue our pas­sion as of­ten as we’d like. This is par­tic­u­larly the case for those of us with fam­i­lies – which, when you think about it, is pretty much all of us. Even if you don’t have kids, the chances are you’ll be all too fa­mil­iar with that ageold pho­tog­ra­phy dilemma – just how long can you wait for that bird/ele­phant/set­ting sun be­fore your near­est and dear­est start to think about throw­ing your beloved Nikon in the near­est wa­ter­ing hole?

That’s where this is­sue’s Ap­pren­tice comes in: award-win­ning por­trait pro Kate Hopewell-Smith shows you how to have your cake and eat it, by mak­ing your fam­ily the sub­ject, and shoot­ing them in a gen­uinely re­laxed, in­for­mal set­ting. Think of it as snap­ping a few pic­tures at the beach, but with pro-qual­ity re­sults.

And if land­scapes are more your thing, Nikon mae­stro Tom Mackie shares 15 fab ideas for tak­ing your sum­mer scen­ics to the next level; if you’re stuck in a rut, then look no fur­ther.

All that plus how to sell prints of your photos, a be­gin­ner’s guide to shoot­ing video, inkjet print­ers vs online labs, and much more. En­joy!
