Ive been buying photography magazines for a couple of years and just cant decide which one i like the most! some months one is excellent and full of useful content, the next month it has nothing of interest and so am forced to buy a different one. I find the level of detail in which many go into isnt good enough, some months there are technical articles with tips and tricks, the next they just cover as much content as they can with no real usefulness, A lot of the time i just have a flick through them until something catches my eye.
Just wondered what magazines you find the most useful and if there are any that might be hiding in specialist shops which might be of interest to the landscaper!

I have to say I find EPZ the most useful magazine of all
Digital Photo mag for me. It always has a few tutorials to follow and is a good read too.
Apart from EPZ of course!
I buy quite a few mainly beacuse I do a fair bit of travelling most are all the same and like you say some are good one month and rubbish the next, my favourite magazine is probably Digital Camera or outdoor photographer.
Best mag for fashion photography is Vogue
Best mag for Rock photography is Q
Best mag for travel photography is Wonderlust or National Geographic
Best mag for car photography is (or was) Car
Best mag for fun on the forums is EPZ
Best mag for landscapes is a bit of a toughie - I'd just go and buy a couple of decent books on the subject.
Best mag for photographic adverts is AP
The photographic mags are all a muchness really - what goes around comes around. I find....
Digital Photo or Photography Monthly for me.
Custom Pc for Computer Mag
National Geographic for nature/travel shots.
Outdoor Photography for er... well, outdoor photography.
'35mm & Subminiature Photography' is my current favourite, just edging 'Photography' and 'Modern Camera Magazine'
Ag, Black & White Photography, Lenswork
What's 'Black and White' like now? I stopped buying it because of the endless pages of crap photos used to illustrate printing technique.
In the final analysis pretty much the same, but I keep buying it as there's more chance of catching an interesting image there that in most of the competition. Specially now that Lenswork has become hard to find locally.
I do like the columns though, Eamon McCabe, Mike Johnson, and the Golden Oldie. Another plus is there are mercifully few kit tests.
If you're into digital - Digital Photographer is great. It has maintained its standards following the change of ownership and the change of editor.
Outdoor Photography is good for nature and landscape.
There are odd articles in the others that are worth keeping an eye out for.
Digital Camera - This is my favourite, I like the style of writing and the features mean there's always something of interest
Practical Photography - I buy this as for some reason there's always something that I want to read based on the front cover, but I'm too embarrased stood in Tesco's for 1/2 hour reading it! lol
What Digital Camera - This I get because I subscribed for 12 months, if I hadn't subscribed I wouldn't get it, as I prefer the other two
Amateur Photographer is my favourite. It's more like a weekly newspaper on photography with good news items, reviews & interesting articles profiling well-known & not-so-well-known photographers. The monthlies keep re-hashing technique articles on an annual basis, i.e. 'Using Filters', 'How to take Great Landscapes', 'Night Photography' etc.
