22 for 2022!

The Apprentice is one of the most beloved features of N-Photo, where we pair a professional photographer with one of our readers, eager to learn the tricks of the trade in a one-on-one workshop. The duo are joined by the N-Photo team, who document the day. This issue marks 10 years since our inaugural Apprentice, which appeared in the very first N-Photo (the December 2011 issue), and looking back, our Apprentices have photographed every subject under the sun (and stars). We’ve shot everything from steam trains to aeroplanes, and been to Premier League football matches, gone on safari, and jostled in the pit at top rock acts on the way. So to mark a decade of Apprentices, we thought we’d do something a little different, bringing you 22 of our finest Apprentices…

Cathedral in the Desert JAY HUANG Cathedral in the Desert is a stunning monument located in the heart of Glen Canyon. Named for its resemblance to a cathedral, it has been submerged by nearly 100 feet with flood water from Lake Powell reservoir since 1963. David Brower, then head of the Sierra Club, referred to this event as “America’s most regretted environmental mistake.” Nine vertical images were merged to create this 274MB-size shot. Camera: Nikon D850 Lens: 20mm f/1.8 Exposure: 1/250 sec, f/11, ISO100 Nemo’s Garden GIACOMO D’ORLANDO The Nemo’s Garden represents an alternative system of agriculture especially dedicated to those areas where environmental conditions or geo-morphological reasons make plant growth extremely difficult.

shoot the seasons

The four seasons can be a rich source of inspiration for landscape photographers. Each season is commonly known for familiar landscape themes, which define its very essence – just think about the bold colours of autumn foliage, spring wildflowers, blankets of deep snow covering the mountains and endless summer days. There is something wonderful about getting out there, witnessing and documenting the various transitions between the ever-changing seasons through the camera lens. Approaching seasonal landscapes can be both challenging and hugely rewarding. The challenge can be twofold. Firstly, it is about learning how to unlock opportunities arising from changing light, tones and textures; and secondly it is about telling the story and being able to capture the differing charms and characters of each season. Learning to overcome challenges is crucial all year…
