Published! Recent work you'll find online and in print

March 29, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Published work  - I can finally share some of the work I've done over the last few months.

Why "finally"? Why the delay? 

These images were shot for print. I didn't want to spoil the surprise by instantly posting them online! Ok, it's not that I didn't want to - it's that I couldn't (some of my very close friends might have gotten sneak peeks as I gushed over that day's shoot). 

Shooting images for a printed publication is an involved process. I'd like to share with you a rough outline for a magazine run: from first contact with the client to the glossy pages of a magazine. I also have had images published in newspaper and online articles. These timelines look different because they are on a much quicker turnaround schedule. Scroll down to see those below.

Magazine rough schedule outline

  • Initial Contact - The client emails or calls me to ask my availability. If I'm available, we confirm the time and location with all parties involved. (1-2 months out from the shoot, and sometimes 3-4 months out from the print run).
  • Pre-production meeting - this is when my client and I come together to execute the plan for the photoshoot. This usually involves a phone call and sometimes a visit to the location of the shoot. (1 week before shoot)
  • Shot list - a detailed plan of the photoshoot. It includes, the scope of the job, all parties involved, ideas for photos and what they may be used for. (1 week out, finalized 2 days before shoot) 
  • Photoshoot! 
  • Post-production - cull images 2-3 times, select finals and edit (1-2 weeks).
  • Deliver images (2 weeks after the photoshoot)
  • Client selects images and they run their print process.
  • Voilà - we get a magazine 3 months later!

Newspaper rough outline

For Spencer's event, we had the date on the calendar for 6 weeks. Pioneer Press picked up the story and that's when it became an assignment! 

  • Pre-production meeting - phone call  (1 week before event)
  • Shot list created (1 week before event, finalized 1-2 days before)
  • Photoshoot (6 hours in the kitchen and dining)
  • Post-production (24 hours after event)
  • Delivery images (24 hours after event)
  • In print and online (5 days after event)

Online publication rough outline

For Eater Twin Cities, I'm often contacted about 1 week to 1 day before the shoot. Restaurants and chefs have odd schedules that dictate the photoshoot and I need to be ready for action.

  • My editor emails me to ask my availability (1 day to 1 week out from shoot)
  • Shot list created (during the initial email)
  • Photoshoot 
  • Post-production (same day)
  • Delivery images (same day)
  • Published online (1-2 days after shoot)
