I'm looking to subscribe to 1 or 2 photography magazines and hoping to get a few recommendations for helpful quality publications with a particular focus on landscape photography.  I am open to print or online publications.  Thanks in advance.

I like outdoor Photographer. I subscribe to it as it's only 12$ a year.

I received a subscription to Outdoor Photographer for my birthday and it's a good read.  A fair bit of gear talk with some nice shots and a few tips thrown in here and there.

I used to have a subscription to photography magazines in the 80's and early 90's.  Thats where I spotted B&H and selected them for some expensive video equipment.  I've bought from them and a few others since then.

The advertisements from fly by night camera stores made it difficult to sort out who the good ones were.  Now, with the internet, you can do a little searching to find out all about a on-line store.

Outdoor Photography Canada

http://www.outdoorphotographycanada.com/

It's a great magazine for landscape photographers. I'm friends with the editor/owner and one of the writers. The articles are written by working professional landscape and nature photographers.

They ship worldwide I think.

The UK version of "Outdoor Photography" is also very good.  They ship worldwide, too. 

Althought the locations are UK orientated, the concepts are universal.

i used to subscribe to pro photographer, but soon got repetitive and uninteresting...  depending on what you want you are prob better off looking at the Adorama TV on youtube and similar.. lots of knowledge and inspiration.. and it is free!!

In the UK, Practical Photography is pretty good for beginners.  Most people tend to stop buying photography magazines after a year or two, probably because after that time they all start to recycle content. 

P.S. a certain well known UK wildlife photographer during a talk I attended:

"If you want a front cover on Outdoor Photography, simply photograph a sunset from a beach with a dark rock in the foreground surrounded by misty water"

I admit it. I subscribe to Pop Photo, American Photo and Outdoor Photographer.

Basically, these magazines are so cheap, they practically give them away. I got a joint subscription deal to Pop Photo and American Photo and then once I subscribed they started sending me additional deals to extend the subscriptions for next to nothing. I think I'm paid up for about four years now on both of them.

I know many look down their noses at these consumer magazines, but I think you have to recognize them for what they are and accept that. Aperture they are not.

I treat them like this and other sites: they are for entertainment purposes. Sometimes I glean some good information from them, but I don't spend a lot of time on them. Mostly, it just gives me something to look forward to getting in the mail. (I'm of the generation that still likes getting mail.)

As for really useful information, I'd strongly recommend signing up for the Photoflex e-newsletters. If you have any interest in lighting at all, they have great how-to lessons. (Which of course conveniently encourage you to buy their products.)

I subscribe to the UK magazines Digital Camera and Digital Photo in particular for their focus on Photoshop techniques and projects.  However, as traveller said, they tend to recycle content after a while so I will probably not renew one or maybe both.
