As I do normally do at the beginning of each year I reassess my progress in photography and my business. Aside from the obvious things like how to increase my revenue over last year, what I did I do right the previous year and what could I improve, I realized one thing I have consciously tried to avoid taking part in; submitted my work to magazines.
As many of you may know that as a portrait and fashion photographer we one of our creative and career goals is to have our work published inside a fashion magazine; preferably print magazine. No offense to online magazines. You can call me ol’ school, it’s ok.
I decided that I am going to create the kind of work that will get me published at least 6 times during 2018. With that said, the first editorial this year I shot with Scout Agency model Luke Winfield entitled “Young & Sporty: AtheLeisure Mens Wear” got picked up by Elegant Magazine. The photo shoot features the works of stylist Melanie Todd of Gaoaen Style and beauty by Bonice Halverson. Side note, having an amazing creative team is the most important aspect to a successful editorial shoot.
