—Editors are human beings. Be kind and respectful.
—It is ok if they don't reply. Focus on the work.
—The fact that a body of work does not fit with the publication is not always a reflection on the work. FOCUS on the work!
—Don't tell them what you need or want—instead ask questions, ask for advice, suggestions or recommendations.
—Please remember, editors hire photographers for an assignment who they know, have worked with in the past or have been recommended by another editor. So, the initial conversation is so important, if you do not know the editor.
What many editors are looking for is to connect and begin conversations through this platform with professional photographers worldwide. Be kind and respectful—it goes along way!
Hope this helps! Send us an email if you need further support!
