I hope you will excuse the seemingly self-promotion nature of this post today. I’ve been lucky enough to have two nice spreads in magazines this month, which I thought could serve as a nice reminder that online publication is not always to be all and end all. Seeing images in print in magazines and books have such a different impact and feeling for me, that it’s important to remember the importance of combining distributiuon methods to reach as many people as possible with our stories and images.

It is also interesting to see what different editors decide to do with my images. On a production level, I normally hand over my images to editors and then they take it from there. This is their job, of course. Speaking from only my personal experience, I rarely am consulted in terms of layout. I am fine with this as I am lucky enough to work with some really very good editors, who try to get the best out of the images. I am rarely disappointed.

So, if you happen to be in Italy at the moment, pick up a copy of Ventiquattro Magazine, which is running a very nice 8-page spread of my work on desertification in China. If you are in China, you may like to pick up a copy of New Travel Magazine 新旅行 which is running a 6-page spread of my work on the plight of the Chinese Alligator. Samples of both, are shown in this post.

    I agree with you that print provides such a different medium to online. I hadn’t picked up a magazine in ages but recently I happened across AFAR magazine. I was very impressed with the quality of the narrative writing but also the style and presentation of the photography. It felt much more like the kind of travel magazine I would want to read and look at.

    Congratulations on the features. Both excellent images and photojournalism.

    Thanks, Ed.

    Yes, always great to get quality writing to accompany the pictures.

    I occasionally write articles to accompany my images. The piece on the Chinese Alligator above for example is accompanied by my text (although it was translated into Chinese by the magazine). Great to have an opportunity to add context to the images.

      Not much! Scavenging for anything it can find, I believe.
