    Hi,

    My name is Joeri and I'm an editor for a small publisher in the Netherlands. We have been making the only mountaineering magazine in the dutch language for 13 years now. We have been working on the idea of a new magazine concerning Africa. There are no magazines about this continent in the dutch language. Now, we need articles and great pictures. Since we're a small company we can't afford to have pro's make trips to Africa for us. We're working together with the tourist boards in Africa to get articles. It's quite hard however to communicate with these tourist boards and it will take time before we can rely on their articles and pictures. I placed a thread at a dutch photo forum and I got a lot of responses. A lot of amateures would like to see their pictures in a magazine. Now I hope to see the same thing here. So the question is; who has any great pictures of African tourism/geology/wildlife/culture/history and has written an article (or wants to write an article) about that theme?
    I hope this is the right place to post this thread. If not, I apologize!
    kind regards,
    Joeri

    I moved this thread and then realized that this probably is the best place for this question...I don't know where else it could go. :D

    What is the pay for photos that get published in your magazine?

    Thanks!
    Since we're a small company we can't afford a 'pro' to go there, shoot tons of film/memory cards and publish. That's why I'm here. We need enthousiastic photographers who have been there, have some pictures and can write a story/report. The reward is your article in magazine and a little financial reward. I'm afraid we can't offer more than 100 euro per article.
    We are also the publisher of the only dutch mountaineering magazine and there we face the same problem. However, we get a lot of high quality articles from people who are paid the same amount of money. Feel free to ask more info.

    regards,
    Joeri
