First time published!  Well, sort of....

I just received notice this morning that three of the six images that I submitted to B Magazine for their March edition which has a theme of pets have been accepted.  Another image was accepted last week into Brand Model Magazine for an upcoming edition which was preselected based on a post by the mom of the featured model to an open submissions call by the magazine on their Facebook page.  (See the images that will be published at end of post.)

Though I have had a number of my scenic images published in a number of publications (area guides, annual reports, and such) and my annual finalist images for photography contests published in the related contest books, this is my first experience being published in a monthly magazine!  

Anyway, I never pursued magazine publication before, but the mom of one of the six models I photographed at the recent "Help Animals: Make Art" shoot in Columbus, Ohio (February 2018) I did for the benefit of PetPromise, Inc. (hosted by El J Modeling) suggested that I submit a particular image.  From there, I decided that I  would select one image of each of the six models I photographed for B Magazine's March theme of "pets" to submit.

And, on a bit of a side note, I only used one off camera flash and umbrella on a stand for my primary lighting** which goes to show that you don't need multiple lights and a lot of gear to capture awesome images (I typically travel very light on gear to on location fast paced model shoots)!  Less is more sometimes and less gear combined with challenging shooting situations (limited space, limited natural light, super tight timeframes, etc.) forces one to be creative or fail.  

So, I wound up submitting six images to B Magazine, three of them were selected, and one to Brand Model Magazine which was preselected.  Woohoo, I'm being published to two magazines, a total of four images, all from one shoot! 

Many of the photographers that I network with and other peers are "published," routinely submitting to and being featured in monthly magazines dedicated to the work of photographers, models, and other creatives and creative contributors.  Some of them have even been contacted directly by the magazines or other creatives requesting their images to be submitted.  Honestly, I have never been asked until now and felt that my work just was not of interest to others for that purpose. 

So, I think I know what I will begin focusing more on moving forward when it comes to model shoots ;-). 

 

** For the shot below of Regan with the dark pink walls, I used an old extra/backup flash which I taped a piece of gell to and set on the floor pointed at an angle to light the background for the shot below with the pink
