The Freelance Photographer's Market Handbook 2008 will once again prove an invaluable tool for the freelance and aspiring freelance photographer. With around a thousand listings, it is bang up-to-date with all the information they need to sell their photos for cash!
Published as usual on the 1st October, this, the 24th edition, includes information on hundreds of markets available for pictures. Detailed listings specify the type of pictures - and articles - required by specialist, trade and consumer magazines. As well as the subject matter required by each publication, each entry details formats required, fees paid - and exactly where to send your pictures and to whom they should be addressed.
As well as magazines, the Handbook includes other markets for pictures including books, greetings cards, postcards, calendars and posters. Again, each listing sets out to show... What They Want, What They Pay, and Where to Send Your Pictures. National newspapers are also listed, with picture desk phone numbers and contacts.
There is also an extensive agency section giving detailed information on each library including subjects required, markets supplied, and terms of business. The Handbook also contains invaluable articles on approaching markets as well as many hints and tips to help the freelance and aspiring freelance photographer to sell their work.
The 2008 Handbook has been thoroughly revised throughout, to reflect current market needs. In addition to the new listings, previous entries have been scrupulously checked and updated, right up to the day the Handbook goes to press.
The Services section of the Handbook is also updated and includes a wide range of companies offering a variety ofservices to the photographer. All in all, it's an invaluable guide for the enthusiastic amateur photographer as well as the semi- and full-time pro looking for more markets to sell their pictures.
