Tip 22: Stick with it. Don’t assume that photographing a wildlife spectacle for one day, one week or even one month will be enough to tell its story.
Tip 23: Is anything missing? Imagine a storyboard with all your pictures on and make sure you've covered all the key aspects of your story.
Tip 24: How to pitch. Once you have a story and some amazing new shots, you need to get to know your target publication in detail.
Tip 25: Buy the mag. Study several issues of the publication and ask yourself who it's aimed at. Identify what sort of content it prefers.
Tip 26: Look closer. Try to identify the sections that make up the magazine – features, news, reviews, masterclasses – and what their priorities are.
Tip 27: Be impressive. When it comes to your pitch, an editor will be more impressed if you can demonstrate an appreciation of their magazine’s needs.
Tip 28: Visit the magazine’s website. Look for advice on how they like to receive photo pitches and, most importantly, who to contact.
Tip 29: Email the right person. Sections have different editors. Targeting the right one can mean a prompt reply instead of a long wait.
Tip 30: Avoid obvious mistakes. Never send your photos to a publication you’ve never even looked at. Editors aren’t stupid – they can tell.
