We dive straight into this issue with one of the world’s foremost marine photographers Alex Mustard, who shares the secrets behind his stunning sub-aqua shots, and explains how you can take your first steps into underwater photography.

This issue’s Apprentice goes to the other extreme, and takes to the skies above this green and pleasant land to photograph a vintage biplane in an amazing air-to-air shoot.

In our Big Test, we put a selection of fast telephoto zooms through their paces, with constant f/2.8 or f/4 apertures beloved of pros. We also look at L brackets, and explain what they are, when you’d use them and compare a selection of models from under £20 to over £150.

In the N-Photo interview we speak with Kenyan-born wildlife photographer Gurcharan Roopra, who tells of his philosophy of placing animals in their wider environment in his images.

Plus we have a great selection of photography projects, shooting portraits with flair, cute kittens, amazing HDR landscapes (we even provide the free software!) and dancing paint, as well as Adobe CC, Affinity Photo and mobile app Pixlr editing tutorials.

And as an added bonus, we're giving away a Nikon for Beginners ebook.
