Thumbs up First publication

Just got a call this afternoon from a local magazine who urgently need a cover picture for the next issue. They got my contact details from an email I sent them a couple of months ago requesting details about advertising - my mail signature has the details of my photography business and they put them on file 'just in case'.

No money in it, unfortunately, as it's not a very big magazine but what we have negotiated is that I get to put what is in effect an advert inside the front cover as part of the credit for the cover image. So free advertising for me in return for the cover image.

The theme was 'summer' and I submitted a selection of images from which they selected the one below, titled "Bee on Lavender" (yeah I know, captions are not my strong point).

I know it's hardly mainstream, and I'm not getting paid, but I'm chuffed.

Re: First publication

Congratulations! I hope it's the start of something big.

That's an ideal photo for a front cover because there's plenty of space for their masthead at the top, without intruding into the pic.

Re: First publication

Thanks both.

Yes, part of the brief was that there must be space at the top for their title. It is amazing how few pictures I found in my collection that actually fitted the bill.

Summerleft: I get credit and within that a free advert with website link contact details. All this on the inside of the front cover so, hopefully, right were it will get noticed.

I'll also be asking for a PDF copy of the final proofs for use within my personal portfolio.

Re: First publication

Thanks again everyone.

It's a small local outfit that just manages to cover it's printing costs through advertising. Most of the editorial content appears to be 'donated' and I doubt they pay out for much (which is one of the reasons I agreed to do this on a barter basis). The two key factors of interest to me are (a) it's a glossy and (b) it goes to every home and business in the immediate area (so maybe 3-4k copies circulated).

Re: First publication

And here is the final product. Got the PDF proof this afternoon from the magazine.

It's a shame about the way the banner has cut into the topmost flower head but aside from that I'm pretty pleased.

Yes it's a shame they didn't resize the text to fit the blank space - nothing would have been lost - but anyway it's still a good result.
