Don't forget to subscribe for more photography: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=bvans890 Reply I really love the new format, it really suits you. About property releases-how does it work with these locations? Alamy keeps asking me for them. Cheers! Reply Planning a shoot has really helped me to focus on what I want to achieve and the settings, positions I need to use. My images are improving through this process. Reply This is one of the most useful photography videos I've seen on Youtube for a while… Well done. Reply What about submitting the same story to multiple magazines? Do you do that or submit to one and only to another if the first is rejected? Reply Interesting video, have you a link to an article you've sold to a magazine or something? I'm sure the pictures will be great I'm just keen to see the written article. Reply Great one! People tend to forget or rather push aside how much other work than just photography goes into such a travel story … Reply Nice hyperlapse sequences…must be time consuming! 🌟🌟🌟 Reply I don't want to be a travel photographer for pay….but I like shooting and writing just not for money. I have a business and do the other for fun Reply Great video man I love the new style and the posting schedule, it's working well and I find this very helpful Reply Great video and very interesting. By the way I loved the article you did for The Star travelling on the boat and attempting to string your hammock. Just makes you want to experience it for yourself, or not… Reply You make it sound much more complex than it is for me – I take photos and magazines magically buy them 🙂 Reply Great video! Thanks for the info! 👍👌✌️ Reply Great video with lots of useful information! Just one question: how did you get the idea of eating at a toilet restaurant? 😂 Reply You had me at Thomas Heaton crazy crops…..thought it was just me who was baffled by those dimensions! Reply Those people photobombing the vlog at 1:49…he he. Reply Thanks for the awesome video and content again. Reply After watching this, well, I'd still love to be a travel photographer. Very precious tips, thank's a lot for sharing. Reply Thanks, these videos certainly help bring focus to what I should be doing. Honestly I've been doing this kind of work for the military for a decade, but the marketing has always been done for me. This will give me the chance to get doing this on my own. Reply Hey Brendan, just got to say this is a amazing and very insightful video. Thanks and If you ever come to Kruger National Park again, hit me up.. Ill show you the best spots around. Reply Can agree more about finding things locally. I just had my first full page magazine publication from a shoot I did about 20 minutes from my house. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bt8DmPxnmpz/ Reply Since competition is murdering out there, is it editor's market? I'm moneywise Reply I do! I honestly would love to be a travel photographer. Though rejection is a major part of the game, the effort and the experience I would gain from building the material to pitch is enough to motivate me to try. I've much to learn but that's the fun of it all. Thanks for the video and the information. Reply Yess one of the best once. The new way is really working. Loved it ❤️🔥 Reply Sweet. Thanks! I'm not going after travel mags but there are some great tips here regardless of what target you're going after. Reply Please don't sit on that toilet restaurant story. I'm flush with questions. Don't keep a lid on it! Reply Excellent blog with solid info. Do you have a video on pricing? Any suggestions for price per word and per image used? Reply Got a question about pitching… do you pitch that same story to various magazines at once? If so, what happens if you get two that accept your article/ photos? Is it ok to have the same story/ photos in two separate magazines or do you have to give that story out exclusively? Hope my question makes sense Reply Great info man. Ive made it to print a few times but am still very much working things out, I appreciate you sharing your experience! Have you ever had issues submitting the same work to multiple editors at the same time? I know some wont accept submissions that are under consideration elsewhere but is that not always the case? Reply Nice shoes!, really enjoying the new BVS photography Channel Reply Hi from your photo shooting buddy on the Elephant Mountain (Xiang Shan). I love your pictures of CKS Memorial Hall (Freedom square?!? they call it now?), especially 'cause I know how difficult weather and light were. Since I whitnessed how you recorded part of your video, I am amazed what you made out of it and the plannig that all the cuts must have taken. On they point and relevant from first to last minute. All the best for you and may you crack the 200k followers soon! Reply Well young Brendon great vlog valuable info! Ive been in and out of photography for about 40 years and now being retired Ive started doing editorial and commercial stock and now starting to make a small return each month. Jings had to be thick skinned as rejection is the norm nowadays. Haven't sent stuff into magazines as yet (I'm a coward) but will need to think about it. Strangely enough the editorial stuff is selling well but one thing to add is the editing process as well. I have to use photomechanic to cull and add meta data as doing in Lightroom for an old duffer like me is hard work on the eyes. At the end of the day its a passive income and keeps me fit. Reply Thanks for the info! It definitely seems like a lot of work but I can image how it must feel to see your work published! Reply Brendan awesome stuff, the meat and potatoes.. Is it possible for you to link a couple of the stores/photos that went to publication, that we could look at it for better understanding of the final product? Reply I'm liking your new style Reply Do you recommend sending the same story to multiple magazines at the same time? If yes, what if more than one gets back to u? How do you go about it? Reply Great video with such good info man. You are absolutely right about shooting a hero shot, followed by the details. I’ve sold some photos to magazines and every time it’s with an article I’ve written. A photo essay with several different types of shots and shooting with a purpose is huge. I love these types of videos! Reply Thanks for this very informative step-by-step guide to selling our work to magazines and newspapers! Many people can benefit from this. Good luck on your submissions! Reply Since I’m married I’m use to rejection. As long as the Editors don’t start each response with “ you know what your problem is …” I’ll be ok.
