If you’ve ever taken your Nikon on hol­i­day (or ‘va­ca­tion’, if you talk funny ;) you’ll know ex­actly what it’s like try­ing to fit your pho­tog­ra­phy in with all the sunbathing/swim­ming/sight­see­ing/ baby-mind­ing/bas­ket-weav­ing. “What, an­other photo...? Who do you think you are, David Bai­ley?” come the cries from your near­est and dear­est, as you line up for your sev­enth hour-long sun­set on the trot. Never mind that David Bai­ley has prob­a­bly never shot a sun­set in his life; as far as your friends and fam­ily are con­cerned, you are spoil­ing the party (or at least de­lay­ing them get­ting to one).

Sound fa­mil­iar? If so, then help is at hand: in this is­sue’s fab main fea­ture (page 16), vet­eran travel pho­tog­ra­pher and au­thor Steve Davey re­veals the tips, tricks and tech­niques for fit­ting in your pho­tog­ra­phy that he’s honed over years of trav­el­ling with fam­ily and friends (and yes, they are still friends).

The travel theme con­tin­ues with this is­sue’s Head to Head (page 92), which pits a typ­i­cal travel lens against two smaller lenses that cover the same fo­cal length range. You might be sur­prised by which op­tion comes out on top. And fi­nally, don’t miss this month’s in­ter­view with Gameof

Thrones pho­tog­ra­pher He­len Sloan (page 98), who re­veals just what it takes to shoot over a mil­lion pho­tos on the set of the big­gest TV show on earth.
