The best photographers for your magazine
Magazine photography is not truly a niche in and of itself as there are magazines which focus on almost every subject you can imagine. If there is a field with a dedicated group of people willing to consume content about it, you can bet there is almost certainly a magazine dedicated to it. What actually sets magazine photography apart other types of photography involves the quality of the shots and the types of considerations the photographer must make that are ancillary to the actual composition of the shot or settings of the camera. In this regard, magazine photographers are generally established veterans with a wealth of technique and experience to guide them through the shoot, from pre to post production. If you require high quality photographs that will be published across the globe, you need a photographer who understands the differences between the regions in how they actually print images.
Photo Agency One’s photographers are not only exceptionally skilled in regards to the design of composition or advanced technique, but also in regards to the analog factors that help determine what your images will look like on the printed page. Regardless of the image, whether it is a lifestyle shot of a London pub or a luxury photograph of an Italian supercar on the streets of Rome, your magazine photographer needs to understand both the technique and printing standards for your images to shine.
Considering the types of printing standards at the photoshooting
Magazine photography requires the professional to not only excel at understanding the advanced techniques of photography but also be intimately familiar with the different types of physical printing standards. This may seem a small aspect of photography, but the saturations and hues of what most people would say is the “same” color produces an identifiably different sight. Other qualities that can influence how images appear in print like the paper used, the ink, and the gloss—of which most high-end magazines use. The standards of how even the same magazine printed in different regions differs from region to region. For example, the color saturation standard of blue in Europe differs than the same designated color in the United states. Likewise, the thickness of the paper differs in both regions, which affects how the ink is absorbed, and ultimately changes how the ink looks to the eye when it dries.
Brochures, Magazines and other print campaigns
Of course, these issues are not as relevant to numerous other formats on which photography is printed. Brochures, for instance, are often all printed in a single location and shipped elsewhere before being distributed. Beyond the general high-level techniques required, other things that generally help magazine photographers are specialization. Considering that magazines themselves are specialized, the photographers generally need to understand their subjects as well as the aficionados who read the magazine do. Specialists will not only be able to capture their subjects in the way that their enthusiast idealize them, but they are also able to combine their specialized understanding of the subject with their advanced knowledge of compositional design to reveal the subjects in new and interesting ways that the enthusiast themselves had either never experienced prior or never even conceived. From a technique perspective, magazine photographers have no established conventions, or more accurately, will often utilize the conventions of which their specialized subjects use in other niches.
