Practical Photography was a monthly UK photography magazine published by the Bauer Media Group since it was acquired from EMAP in 2008. Established in 1959, It ceased publishing on 2 June 2020 following Bauer Publishing’s decision to stop printing many of its magazines due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The magazine included subject guides, camera and editing tutorials, interviews, Q&As, product reviews, and how-to videos. It also featured Camera School, an annual camera skills course for beginners. When it ceased publication, the group editor was Ben Hawkins.
