When it comes to wildlife, few photographers are as prolific as Laurie Campbell, and this issue he shares his decades of experience shooting birds and mammals throughout the British Isles.

Our apprentice turns his attention to altogether smaller critters, as he undertakes a macro masterclass, photographing incredible close‑ups of butterflies and bugs in West Country nature reserves.

In our interview we quiz Finnish outdoors photographer Eeva Mäkinen about her breathtakingly beautiful landscapes and images of their inhabitants in and around the Arctic Circle.

In our Big Test, we try carbon-fibre tripods that combine stupendous  strength with a lightweight build. And while we’re aware we’re in a cost-of-living crisis, we couldn’t resist bringing you our thoughts on Nikon’s amazing (but eye-wateringly expensive) two-in-one 400mm f/2.8 prime that turns into a 560mm f/4 at the flick of a switch.

In the Skills section, we explore User Settings, get creative with lighting for sci-fi-themed portraits, explore different-strength ND filters, and shoot super-long-exposures in daylight. Plus we’re giving away CutOut 7, to separate subjects from backgrounds with ease!
