NPhoto - - Welcome To Issue 50 Of... - Paul Gro­gan, Editor paul.gro­gan@fu­turenet.com

Hello, and a very warm welcome to this, the 50th is­sue of which is with­out doubt our most am­bi­tious is­sue yet. We’ve re­ally gone the ex­tra mile this month – quite lit­er­ally in the case of this is­sue’s Ap­pren­tice in Africa – and we hope you en­joy read­ing it ev­ery bit as much as we’ve en­joyed mak­ing it.

If I had to pick out a high­light, it would be the afore­men­tioned Ap­pren­tice, where we teamed an

reader up with award-win­ning wildlife pro Lou Coet­zer, a 600mm f/4 lens and a cus­tom-built pho­tog­ra­phy boat for a truly un­for­get­table photo sa­fari. Of course, be­ing in the right place with the right kit and the right coach is only half the story – you can read the other half on page 8.

Another must-read ar­ti­cle this is­sue is our fea­ture 50 Pho­tog­ra­phy Quotes to Live By, which of­fers a truly in­spi­ra­tional mas­ter­class from 50 of the big­gest names from the last 100 years of pho­tog­ra­phy.

And speak­ing of big names, they don’t come much big­ger than Tim Page, whose sto­ries of chang­ing rolls of film while un­der fire in Viet­nam of­fer a graphic in­sight into life on the front line of pho­tog­ra­phy.

Fi­nally, I would like to say a huge thank you to all of whether you’ve been a sub­scriber since is­sue one, or you’ve just bought the oc­ca­sional is­sue – we couldn’t have done it with­out you!
