Black and White (UK),
B&W (buy in shop)
Just started my subscription for VC when I got a chance to be in it...

Damn Art, you made of money or something? I subscribe to Emulsion and LensWork, and I'll buy anything that looks good on the bookstore rack, but I find that I don't spend a lot of money on magazines. It has to have some substance to it, and preferably no gear reviews, for me to want to spend hard my earned cash on something other than paper, film, or chemicals. Let me re-phrase that last, 'photographic' chemicals...
Art, as an artsy Torontonian I'm surprised that you don't have Prefix. It's probably the only Canadian magazine about contemporary art photography. Lots of good stuff in it, as well as some dubious stuff, but that's the artworld. I subscribed to it.
I also read Lenswork, Aperture, have a subscription to Emulsion, I read the UK Black and White Photog in kiosks, check the occasional bits in Photo Techniques and when I feel tabloid, I look at the pretty colors in Pop Photo. Oh, and I check also the French Photo magazine, especially for the good-looking ladies.
Using film since before it was hip.

"Emulsion" is the only magazine I subscribe to right now. I've let "Lenswork" and "Aperture" lapse and that seemingly never ending subscription to "Popular Photography" finally ran out. I considered subscribing to "B&W" but instead I just buy it occasionally. I think I'll go back to browsing the magazines at Barnes & Noble (with an occasional purchase) instead of subscribing to anything again. I'll put the cost of a yearly magazine subscription toward the cost of a book by or about a photographer I'm really interested in.
B&W (US) - had this one since issue #1
American Photo (will not renew this one)
I recently let Pop Photo lapse (and will not renew) after approx 147 years of reading Herb Keppler. :rolleyes:
I wish Ailsa's Black and White Photography wasn't so expensive in the US. However, as I cut back on other subs, maybe I'll pick it up.
I've let Camera Arts and Photo Techniques lapse. Camera & Darkroom (a gem) lapsed on its own. B&W may be the next to go.
how soon is now?
Currently B+W UK, Ag, View Camera and Emulsion. I'm going to give Lenswork a go as well.It's not always easy to find a photography magazine that doesn't have pages of gizmo reviews in it these days but the truth is still out there
