App Description

f2 is the essential magazine for anyone interesting in turning their photographic skills into income, whether as a full-time career or a revenue stream to enhance lifestyle and financial independence.

f2 Freelance Photographer is published six times a year as a premium quality print edition. We are pleased to make it available here as an electronic edition to extend our readership worldwide without the high postage costs required for a publication of this type.

f2 was founded in 2004 by David Kilpatrick, who has taken over the magazine again from April 2014 after seven years with a different publisher, and invested in a major upgrade to the quality and content. Issues after April 2014 are significantly different from those before, which you can still obtain as back issues. The new content is more varied and less predictable, with a wide range of topical reports on freelancing, the stock photo business, profiles and portfolios, an open gallery, success stories… even the occasional failure story… expert equipment reviews which are not ‘tests’ but advice on performance and practical use.

A typical issue of f2 contains 30-35,000 words and over 150 images. It doesn’t just feel like a book, it’s got as much content as a book!
