TO BE CONSIDERED AS A DOUBLE SPREAD FEATURE ARTIST (note that the more complete and full your submission is, the more likely we will select you.  Submissions with only 1-2 photos or very little content or no "BONUS" info will likely not be considered.)

TO BE FEATURED, complete a little more for us for consideration. Note that we rarely choose photographers for double spreads who have not submitted enough images and content for us to publish.

1-2 Head shots (please label the file name(s) with your name. We are more likely to feature you if your head shot is showing your face and not hidden behind a camera!  And please share an image that is just you, and from hips up or closer.)

Paragraph bio (this is optional but encouraged.)  We may not include it. We also love to see short excerpts and/or stories about the session, articles from photographers with their shared knowledge relevant to the pictures they have shared etc.

BONUS: Share a tip you have learned in working in challenging light.  OR Share something that makes you happy and brings light into your life.

For models, either include their name OR IG handle as there may not be room for both.

For styled sessions, please also include the NAMES ONLY of the creative team (note that only the photographer will be credited on the cover if chosen for as our cover artist)

** We are also looking for before and after pictures with articles about your edit technique and presets, such as screen shots and a step by step guide. Email us if you have content for this!
