Sharing your imagery on social media and your personal portfolio website is a great start to marketing your photography work. But, in order for you to expand your reach and build your creative network – it’s best to consider submitting your images to online and print publications. Depending on your specific niche, there is a wide selection of magazines that accept submissions.
In fact, we have broken it down into two categories:
- Photography focused publications for all types of image-makers including travel, still life and landscape
- Fashion publications for portrait, commercial and lifestyle photographers.
