Exclusivity

Some magazines want high quality fashion art shots while others want head and shoulder shots for hair catalogue style publications. If your shots require an exclusive release to a quality, creative magazine, please let contact us about this. This may be a more lengthy process, so after discussion, we will provide you with a quote for this service.

Cover Shots

Magazine cover shots are a particular type of photo. Editors are often on the look-out for cover shots (unless they shoot their own covers). If you are interested in providing a cover shot, study magazines covers carefully. Then include one or more shots framed as cover shots in your photo shoots – a close up, space around the head for the magazine banner and text headlines.
