    Question SUBMITTING WORK/getting work

    Okay, I covered, unofficially a protest last week and submitted some photos to various places, newspapers etc. This got me thinking, does anyone have any tips on submitting to newspapers, I mean, all I did was submit them to various places via email.
    Also, any tips about getting connections with modelling agencies in order to shoot models for their folios (and my folio). I find the hardest bit for me is trying to make connections, if you have tips, please write them!

    - Call and ask them first how they would accept portfolios. Email, website, prints, books, if books/prints; what size etc.
    - Find the name of the Photo Editor and personally address your communication to them - make it brief. They don't have time for essays.
    - Don't send your original film/slide as it may get lost in the mail.
    - If you are sending in prints/book, make sure you enclose your business card and if possible a postcard which features your sample work(s).

    Hope this helps.

    does emailing a photo to the newspaper give them automatic permission to print it? I have been hesitant about sending shots in to newspapers because I don't wnat them printing it and I get no credit/compensation

    When you send it just include something like "If you are interested in publishing these photos, please contact me to discuss pricing"
