We get this question all the time. Fortunately for us, all of our readers have a unique take on street photography and many shoot the streets in different cities all over the world, so as you can imagine there is the potential for an almost unlimited number of one-of-a-kind street photography projects, essays, ideas, how-tos and the like. But sometimes it can be challenging to make the leap from a series of street shots you like to a full fledged article. So we thought we’d take the time to talk about it. Why is written content so important? What should it include? How many images will you need to include? At what resolution? Here’s a brief overview of some of the main points we covered.
Tips at a Glance
- Decide what kind of article you want to write. It might be a how-to article, a personal street photography project or even a tour of the city you live in.
- Select a maximum of 8 photos to include your project. Less would be fine, but definitely no more. Choose only your best work for publication.
- Write a minimum of 1200 words. Try to create a story or guide that flows in a logical order and tells a story.
- When you submit your work, introduce yourself. In a few sentences, tell us who you are and why your project is relevant to the magazine.
These are just a few basic tips we covered during our conversation. To discover more ways you can make your work grab a publisher’s attention, click the audio player below:
