Tips On Submitting Your Photography To Publications

Getting your images featured in publications adds a ton of value to your portfolio. A lot of people find it very difficult to get their pictures published. However, it is not a very challenging task. We have made a list of tips that can help increase your chances of having your photos viewed and published. So, take a note of all the points to feature your photos in publications.

1. Polish the images – If you want to get your pictures published and share it with the world, it is essential that you make the pictures look impressive. Often you cannot submit the pictures raw, and as they were taken because the photos need polishing. Editing can add a lot of value to your photos while also maintaining the integrity of the photos.

 

2. Know the publication – A lot of photographers simply submit their work to publications without even finding out what the publication is all about. When photographers do this, it becomes apparent to publications that you the submissions are not based on proper research. This definitely becomes an issue for the publications as no publications house would want to publish a work that has not been worked on with full commitment.

3. Identify the style of photography being published – One good way to know about a publications house is by going through their earlier releases and learn about the form of photographs that they work with. This will help you know if your style of photography and subjects match the needs and interests of a publication house. For instance, you can look for common themes such as fashion photography, monochromes, animal photography etc. This saves you your valuable time as well as effort.

4. Know the submission specifications – All publication houses that accept submissions have a section devoted to telling you the specifications. Before you go ahead and send in your work, make sure to go through the list and adhere to all the guidelines mentioned. Specifications can be in terms of the number of photos you can submit, the dimension of the photos, the resolution etc. Each publication house has different guidelines, so make sure you check the preferences of each publication.

 

5. Address the correct person – Usually, the guidelines also tell you who the submissions should be addressed to. However, if nothing is mentioned, you can add a ‘Respected team’, and it will do the trick. When the name is mentioned, on the other hand, ensure that you address your submission to them. Failing to do so shows that you have not taken any effort to know about the publication house or even read the submission specifications.

10 Things to Know Before Getting Into Photojournalism

Photojournalism can be fascinating for aspiring people looking to choose it as a career. Well, we believe that it truly is fascinating. You get paid to travel, witness history take place, and change other people’s perspective through your lenses. Isn’t it a fantastic way to live? However, it isn’t easy getting there. Therefore, before choosing photojournalism as a profession, we would like you to know ten essential things. They are:

1. The perspective is more important than the camera – Being a photojournalist does not require the most expensive camera. It is more about the eyes behind the camera and the perspective through which you look at things. We suggest you start learning with what you have and train the eye.

2. Stand out – Photojournalism is not about being a good photographer anymore. In today’s world, everyone carries a camera in their pockets, and the line between professional and amateur photography is getting blur. Therefore, you need to develop a sense of personal style that will make you stand out.

3. The stories you know the best are the strongest – Many photojournalists tend to chase after stories that everyone else is doing. However, in an oversaturated market, you cannot stand out that way. Instead, work on your perspectives and stories and how those stories can be told in a way that others cannot.

4. Diversity crisis – Often, cultural and hiring practices leave jobs to Western men. Despite of this, there has been a gradual shift from this as efforts are put in to bring new perspectives to light.

5. Business sense is an important skill – You must have a little bit of business sense too when it comes to charging, negotiating and reading contracts.

6. You will have to face rejection – You need to understand that it will not always be sunshine and that rejections are a part of the journey. What is important is that you learn from every rejection.

7. You won’t spend much time photographing – Photojournalism is much more than just clicking pictures. It encompasses researching, getting access, building contacts, payments, editing, marketing etc.

8. Safety is crucial – Safety of your health, as well as your work, is essential. Photojournalism comes with the responsibility of presenting yourself as a professional. You need to protect yourself and your work during conflicts.

9. Know the ethics in photojournalism – The ethics in photojournalism is not the same as photography ethics. There are several cases every now and then that show issues such as staging, photoshop or misrepresentation of pictures. Make sure you know the ethics thoroughly.

10. Photojournalism does not earn you a lot of money – At least during the initial years, you won’t be able to earn a lot, so you need to have another source of income. Moreover, often, you might need to budget and are likely to have a cash crunch.
