The Freelance Photographer’s Market Handbook 2013 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 29th edition, includes information on hundreds of markets looking for pictures. It contains detailed listings on 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 the picture editor of each paper as well as 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 2013 Handbook is 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 went to press.
The Services section of the Handbook has also been updated to include a wide range of companies offering a variety of services to the photographer.
The Freelance Photographer’s Market Handbook continues to provide 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. It is available through WH Smith and other good booksellers. Alternatively, it can be
purchased direct from the publishers at £16.95 including P&P. Phone 020 8882 3315 to order by card or send a cheque to BFP Books, Focus House, 497 Green Lanes, London N13 4BP.
