There are plenty of genres and types of photography and assignments. Commercial and editorial photography are terms that often confused, especially if you’re new to the craft. But there are significant differences between the two, and in this video, Scott Choucino will guide you through them.
You may think that a single light isn’t enough to shoot magazine-worthy and professional-looking editorial portraits. But in this video, Elaine Torres shows you how to pull it off. She demonstrates a photo shoot with a single light and a two-light setup, so you can pull it off in a small studio or even at home.
As a photographer myself, I know how hard it can be to do a fabulous fashion or beauty editorial and then try to figure out where to submit it.
Questions like; Which fashion magazine will it fit? What type of magazine do I want it in? Print or online? How should I go about submitting it? etc. etc. Will start racing through your mind.
If you are like me, at this point, you want to give up and just publish them on social media and be done with it.
Well, for months now I have been compiling a large list of fashion magazines and beauty magazines that are always looking for submissions and ready to take a look at your editorials. So hopefully we have made your life just a bit easier.

A few people requested an in-depth post on how to grow your instagram. Here’s how I grew my instagram account without using any online services. Before I dive in, this is purely my workflow and there is no secret App that will make you gain thousands of followers over night nor is this going to be about buying followers/likes. So if this is not for you, just ignore this post.
A little about myself (this is important, I promise) I am a freelance photographer from Tanzania. I spent most of my teenage years abroad (in South East Asia) for studies. Whenever I introduced myself to people, I’d get 3 main questions:
- Where is Tanzania?
- Is it safe?
- What do you guys eat?
The advent of the Internet was a momentous occasion, one which afforded me a litany of new ways to continue doing what I have always done best but now with a much larger audience — open my mouth and say things I probably shouldn’t. I know, shocker. Consider yourself a gem from Heaven if you are unable to testify to having done it at least once. Go ahead, cast the first stone.
As an aspiring photographer, like many artists, I had a tendency to find masters of inspiration and just latch onto them for all I was worth. I would follow their work, I would follow their lives, I would live vicariously through their utter awesomeness. But, as anyone who has idolized anyone can tell you, eventually your idols let you down, sometimes through no intentional fault of their own.
