Practical Photography was a UK monthly photography magazine published by the Bauer Media Group since it was acquired from EMAP in 2008.[1] Established in 1959,[2] It ceased publishing on the 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.[3] The magazine included subject guides, camera and editing tutorials, interviews, Q&As and product reviews, as well as 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.

Alongside a monthly magazine, Practical Photography could also be found on social media, including the popular Practical Photography Talk Facebook group and its YouTube channel Practical Photography Magazine.
