What do you think of PhotoVogue ? The whole idea of uploading for free ?
Poppy's Pix (20 days ago)
Anita, what make-up are you using? You are creating a lot of HOT spots to her face which usually are not what your looking for.

Hi Anita, if the photoshoot was a test shoot and nobody from your team get paid for it, it seems unfair to me to be paid from the magazine. How do you see that?

Thanks Anita for this and other videos. I have learned much from you. You are really honest and sincere and you always speak about really interesting topics. Thanks again.

Very genuine and helpful suggestions for aspiring fashion photographers like myself. I have to say, your tutorial is one of a few that really taught me how to navigate through this industry. I have submitted to several online magazines for free for two major reasons. First of all, I am a self-taught photographer, everything I learned about photography and this industry is from YouTube, Google, reading books, and doing my own research. I am lack of information and access to the “real” publications, modeling agencies, stylists, etc., building everything from scratch is a real struggle, but online publications become a way for me to build my portfolio, practice my skills for editorial work, discover and build my network; secondly, I have to work a full-time job to pay for the bills while improve my photography skills and work my way up, but shooting editorials for a printed magazine can be really time-sensitive and involves a lot of efforts which I find difficult to do while working full-time, so online magazines seem to become an alternative, which I often have a conflicted feeling toward it like you said you don’t respect my work. All in all, I think online magazines are only good for someone who is similar to my case. But it’s not worth for more experienced photographers for sure. Also, I have a question about Vogue Italia and Photo Vogue. Have you ever done that? I have been submitting to them. Sometimes, I consider it as some sort of criteria to evaluate my skills. Is that right? Or any suggestions for self-taught photographers like me about how to evaluate or to find someone to constructively criticize our works, so we know where we are and how to improve? Except for expensive workshops... ;p thank you very much!

Thank you so much for this video, it was very helpful, i was needing this kind of advice. Keep up with the good work! x
Karina Swan (6 months ago)
Hi, although I'm not a photographer (I stumbled on your channel), I like your advice I agree with you on all of the points. I'm wondering do you have any advice on how to get industry contacts in general, especially in the editorial world?
Patrizia Val Madiona (6 months ago)
Truly loving your videos! Eye opening material! Thank you!
James O'Doherty (7 months ago)
Hey Anita :) Loving your videos!! Just discovered them today - watching them all!! I was just wondering about 1 thing that you touched on in this video. If you have already done a full shoot that you think a certain magazine will like - is it still possible to get paid for the submission? Or do you only get paid when a magazine commissions the shoot from a mood board?
Jamil Gotcher (7 months ago)
The best take away is "Respect your work." It's so true that brands and magazines are having so much fun exploiting all these young photographers who are willing to give away their work. Models also need to respect their image and services. I also want to add that photographers need to put in their model portfolio releases that the images may not be used in magazines without consenting the photographer. My photography ended up on a billboard in NYC last fall from a model portfolio photoshoot. So I've had to reword my model portfolio releases to say, portfolio images are not to be submitted to magazines without consent from photographer. Because the magazines are going to the models for permission to use the images that the photographer shot.

I love real talk and honesty... this was great information thank u :)
Conrad Lee (9 months ago)
Hi Anita. thanks for the insightful video. Do you do the shoot with your own concept before contacting the magazines like L'Officiel, or do you send a mood board and wait for a reply? What if you have done a shoot and they didnt respond? What do you do with the images then? (im sure the whole team would still be eager to get it published)?
Will Gavillan (10 months ago)
Anita you are a wealth of knowledge and I appreciate your candor...and your images kick ass, so there's that lol.

Osmar Lucas (1 year ago)
Really like your videos. It would be fun to see a video of you comparing your old pic with the recent ones. Or maybe reacting to your first pictures and telling yourself advices that would be helpfull on the beggining of your career
Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
Crazy you suggested that - I literally have a video like that scheduled for next week!! :D
Juan Pablo Font (1 year ago)
Can you make a video like this but for digital retouchers? im a relative new digital retoucher ( i worked 8 years as an art director, and since a couple of years now im focusing on digital retouch) and im having trouble to reach clients, i don't know exactly how to aporach and who, if i should contact photographers, magazines, photo studios or directly to the brands. I tried all of them and i really didn't work well until now. Thank You! amazing content as always!
Light and Dark (1 year ago)
I've been used....I pay for the dinner everytime after shoot...they say im talented but endup working for free...lol
Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
yeah thats not right :(
John Sansom (1 year ago)
Very honest and open video Anita, thanks for sharing. Particularly highlighting the dubious tactics of some of the "Internet/Submission" based magazines that are out there. Regarding contact sheets for your editorials, assuming 8-10 looks, how many images do you send over in your edit for selections to be made from? Thanks.
Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
thank you! yeah usually its around 8-10 looks. different magazines request different numbers of images but usually its either 4 or 9 photos per look (2x2 or 3x3 on a contact sheet) :)
Seth Doerksen (1 year ago)
Do you have any videos about how to get models/makeup artist/stylist etc? If not could you make one in the future?!

Hey Anita ! This is a really great video ! Very complete without being too long!
Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
glad you think so :D <3
Victoria Spanier (1 year ago)
I think submitting your editorials to magazines is a good starting point even though they don't pay. I think Anita's video is more for "advanced" photographers who already have a strong portfolio (though I might be wrong). Nobody is going to hire you if you have nothing to show. (Emerging)Stylists are less likely to work with you if there's no intention of submitting their work anywhere. You *shouldn't* *submit* to free magazines(that publish via magcloud or on demand or are completely free to read on issuu) if your goal is: 1)get exposure (the only people reading those magazines are photographers like you) 2)get clients (same reason). You *should* *submit* to free magazines if you want to 1) get experience in editing your images up to a certain quality/size/standard. It affects your shooting, especially with a cheap camera. You start remembering that you will have to cut most of the picture out(remember all the crying over great shots that couldn't make it cuz you had to cut off the models head to fit her in the 8.5x11 inches frame) so you start to position your model differently (until you buy a full frame camera then it's all over again). 2) get experience working with people 3) show off to clients that are impressed by tear sheets 4) work with people more professional than you 5) make your mama proud

Mnie okradł Modellen Land. Po części to wina siedemnastoletniej modelki, która wysłała tam zdjęcia, ale trudno winić tak młodą osobę. Za to wydawca powinien się upewnić, że autor zdjęcia wyraża zgodę na publikację, a on tego nie zrobił i zasłaniał się tym, że modelka oświadcza, że ma zgodę. Kiedy zwróciłem mu uwagę, że to on jest wydawcą i to na nim ciąży obowiązek zdobycia zgody fotografa, to zaczął mi mówić, że robi wielką łachę i mnie promuje. Jak mu napisałem, że to ja decyduję kiedy i kto mnie promuje, to usłyszałem, że "kim to ty niby jesteś, światowej sławy fotografem?". Gdyby nie to, że to pisemko ma nieokreślony status (niby darmowe, ale z możliwością zamówienia wersji papierowej), nieokreślony nakład i że moje zdjęcie było niewielką częścią tego wydania (pół strony na 272 strony), to bym założył sprawę temu aroganckiemu kutasowi.

Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
glad you enjoyed it!
There are people out there paying to be featured in instagram feeds. That is scariest.
Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
ugh :O
TheAcR311 (1 year ago)
Hi Anita! Awesome video!! I would like to know how to shoot a lookbook. Do you contact the brand?
Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
You can but i find with most of my clients they found me online/through word of mouth :)
Lesia's Tale (1 year ago)
So what would be the main source of income for a fashion photographer? I always thought that editorials pay the most but you said that lookbooks do?
Jamil Gotcher (7 months ago)
Lesia, you can also make money shooting model's beginner portfolio images before they start booking paid jobs. Some of them will not really make it in modeling but their are loads of people trying to get into modeling and are willing to pay a photographer who has a really nice fashion portfolio.
Joyce Zhang (11 months ago)
Anita Sadowska I feel a little frustrated knowing that photography pays badly...I’ve just started out.
Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
agree with Victoria - however not everybody does workshops. My main income would be Lookbooks and Campaigns mixed with a bit of bridal editorial ( which is the only one that pays a decent fee)
Victoria Spanier (1 year ago)
campaigns, lookbooks, but mostly workshops :D
Gosita de Oliveira (1 year ago)
you do loads of editorials , pay your bills and thats it :) the good thing about it is that you can shoot in different coool locations and be published :)
Dominik Schvartz (1 year ago)
love this! thank you for making this video :)
Dominik Schvartz (1 year ago)

Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
glad you liked it Dominik, hope you're doing well! :)
Valentina Turci (1 year ago)
Hi Anita, I think most of digital magazines want to publish photographers with a lots of followers on social media, despite the work is good or not.  what do you think about it?
Divineshot 314 (1 year ago)
Anita Sadowska complete shit. Hah
Valentina Turci (1 year ago)
Anita Sadowska same! 👍🏻👍🏻
Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
Valentina Turci yes I realise that. It's absolutely shit, that's what I think 🙃
Byrone (1 year ago)
Anita, you're a special person, thank you so much for this video, thank you!!! I love you your work for us, your followers!! Institute Mag and others magazine are terrible and don't respect our work....it's difficult sometimes!! Ps: next time for the video, fil it in a normal environment with natural light or another light, belive me, the quality will be great. Excuse me, but for me......you're like a friend. Ciao!! ;)
Byrone (1 year ago)
ohh ok Ani, and excuse me another time!! I'll be always sincerly with you. ;)
Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)

Sanu Mohammed (1 year ago)
❤️ .... loved this one.... can you make a video on portfolio building as well ? ☺️
Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
definitely!
Helena AdaMor (1 year ago)
dear Anita, you've mentioned size and resolution of the images, but I have a question: when sending images to print magazines, do you safe them in Tiff or jpg?which color space?RGB or CMYK?do you work on images in sRGB or ProPhoto and do you convert them afterwards? I would appreciate your help!
Thorsten Merz (1 year ago)
I think if a magazine asks you to provide CMYK, then they probably don't know what they are doing. For more on this topic, it's worth taking a look at this book - "CMYK 2.0: A Cooperative Workflow for Photographers, Designers, and Printers" by Rick McCleary
Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
I always send RGB unless the magazine requests CMYK specifically. I work in sRGB and i don't convert afterwards :)
Victoria Spanier (1 year ago)
The magazine's submission guidelines state it all, if they're not on the website then send them an email asking what their requirements are
Helena AdaMor (1 year ago)
unfortunately, there are a lot of online magazines that require payment, explaining that they have to pay their graphics or editors to take care of the editorials, and what about us who spent a couple of days to prepare(often investing money), photograph and retouch the editorial? At the end of the day they get the publicity, likes, followers, not we...Another reason they require payment is that you will be considered in the first line, but without a guarantee that you will be published, but still they promise to answer you asap and give an honest feedback about your editorial...
Thorsten Merz (1 year ago)
The worst offenders are the vanity publications - easily recognisable though as they typically lack editorial and production quality, and only make pocket money by asking those who submitted material to pay for a digital copy of the magazine (as they have a print run of zero :D )
Anita Sadowska (1 year ago)
yeah it's such a bullshit excuse - mags usually survive of advertising and if they can't secure that, they should not be putting it on photographers!
Thorsten Merz (1 year ago)
Some wise words here - https://fstoppers.com/originals/why-you-shouldnt-submit-your-photographs-magazines-193976
Helena AdaMor (1 year ago)
Sonja de Vlaming that is why i never use such "opportunity". I will never pay neither for being treated as first nor for getting published on Instagram & co... This is the information that I've researched, before I've chosen which online magazine is worth to cooperate with:)
Sonja de Vlaming (1 year ago)
Helena AdaMor I don't mind doing a submission for free if there's advantages for me. But I will never pay to be published nor to have my work evaluated. Know your worth and know the value of your own investments!
