How to get your photos published in magazines

Many specialist newsstand magazines pay by the page, so the proportion of the page taken up by your photo determines your fee. If you were submitting both words and pictures you could get anywhere from £60-200 per page, depending on the magazine.

If you do have work accepted then you need to know the 'rights' the magazine is buying from you. It's common for magazines to insist on full rights in perpetuity.

This means they can re-use the image in reprints, digests, foreign editions and so on. You still own the picture, but they've bought the right to use it.

The terms vary between publishers and it's important that you're absolutely clear what you're selling.
