As a photographer in this day and age, it’s so often that your work gets hidden away on website banners and all things digital. Thats why when offered the job of photographing some of the people, that are well known in this island for the Guernsey election campaign I jumped at it. Its great to see your photographs printed on banners, posters and even milk cartons. And see people actually using something with your work on it.
Until recently I have photographed for magazines locally. I have been involved with, Contact Magazine, The Rock, Gallery magazine, GBG and GSY Life. Anyone thats been involved with publications of this sort will tell you that they are demanding and not particularly financially rewarding. But there is something attractive about seeing your work in print all around you and a sense of satisfaction when each magazine goes to bed.
I would encourage people to send off for prints if they dabble in photography, holding something in your hand and looking at it often gives you a much better view than looking at it on your laptop. I recommend snapmad.com for reasonably priced prints and great service.
