You don’t have to travel halfway around the globe to get stunning images of wildlife. From back-garden birds to fauna in local fields, Tom Mason shows you how to capture fabulous shots of furry and feathered friends within a stone’s throw of where you reside.

But travelling halfway around the world is exactly what this issue’s Apprentice did when she met pro photographer Chris McLennan on an expedition to photograph polar bears and the epic wilderness of the Arctic (for full disclosure, before the limits of lockdown) and came back with truly jaw-dropping shots.

In our Gear section, we take a look at eight photo-quality printers for producing wall-hanging artworks of A4, A3 or even A2 in size, to really show off your photos at their very best. We also try five fast SSD drives for speedy access to your archived images, and put Luminar AI through its paces – photo-editing software with a difference, as it employs AI and machine learning to process your images for you.

In Nikopedia, we explain the whys and wherefores of on-camera flash, from the handy pop-up device to powerful slot-in Speedlights, and introduce NX Studio, Nikon’s new free editing software!

Plus we have our usual mix of inspirational interviews, cracking columnists and tutorials to try at home. And as an added bonus, we're giving away Home Photography Handbook ebook edition – full of inspirational ideas for projects to shoot in and around the house.
