How to Shoot for Magazines
Local and regional magazines regularly feature people in the community where they live and work. You are likely to see community leaders, service providers or heathcare providers in these magazines. The magazines need certain images from a photo shoot with the subject. The cover should be a portrait image of the subject(s). Unlike a fashion cover, the cover image for a local magazine is usually an environmental portrait. By placing the subject in his or her environment, you immediately give the viewer an idea about who the subject is and what they do. The face and environment may be familiar to those in the community. Typically, with a cover shoot, there will also be an inside article that will need images. These images are better as landscape photos. These include even more of the subject’s environment and likely some type of action or interaction with others. For example, with healthcare providers, it’s best to show how they interact with patients. Readers feel more at home with this provider even though they have never met. The human interaction makes a big difference.
Cover Photo Shoot for ASRT Magazine
The publisher of the American Society for Radiologic Technologists contacted me for an upcoming publication. The subject was a local professor and radiologic technologist. What a fun photo shoot! Brian and I worked together to create a great cover shot in the atrium of the health science building on campus. Then we went to the lab for some shots with the x-ray and skeleton. We didn’t know his name but every class names the skeleton. This one had hair and a hat! These landscape images will be a perfect compliment to the inside article highlighting Brian’s continued support and promotion of medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals. All my best Brian and I can’t wait to get a copy of the magazine in the mail!
