This is­sue, we’re giv­ing over a gen­er­ous pro­por­tion of the mag­a­zine to one of our favourite sub­jects: namely, Nikon kit. Whether you’re look­ing to buy your first ever D-SLR, or af­ter some ex­pert guidance on up­grad­ing your cur­rent cam­era or lenses, we’re here to help. Our Big Test (p122) of ev­ery cam­era in Nikon’s cur­rent en­try-level line-up will help you buy with con­fi­dence; and if you al­ready own a Nikon and are in the mar­ket for a new body or lens, Matthew Richards’ su­perb fea­ture (p28) re­veals THE per­fect up­grades for a va­ri­ety of bod­ies and lenses, from trusted stal­warts to hid­den gems.

And once you’re armed with your new Nikon, you won’t want to miss our Ap­pren­tice fea­ture with world-renowned land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher Char­lie Waite. I don’t think I’ve met an­other land­scape pro who takes as much care over the tini­est de­tails of light, shade and com­po­si­tion as Char­lie. Find out why it mat­ters on page eight.

And speak­ing of de­tails, you won’t find many pros who’d be pre­pared to sit in a wa­ter­ing hole deep in the African bush for three months to pho­to­graph a lion. Awein­spir­ing wildlife pro Greg du Toit re­veals all on page 106.

All that plus cap­tur­ing the fun of a fes­tive fair; set­ting up as a wed­ding pro; and unique bodyscapes that take light, shade and com­po­si­tion to a whole new level. Enjoy!
