The Importance of Being a Published & Featured Senior Photographer
How do you know you are hiring a professional to capture your senior portraits? It is so important to select a published and featured senior photographer. This means that the photography industry recognizes the work of the photographer. And it can indicate that your photographer keeps up with current trends.
As a senior photographer, I am constantly pushing myself to create better images and hone my skill and craft. It is such an honor to have my work featured on social media pages and published in magazines. If you are wondering why that is important, you are in the right place. I’ll also share the difference between being a featured senior photographer and a published one.
Featured Senior Photographer
I frequently post senior portraits from recent sessions on my Instagram and tag well-known senior photography pages. As a result, if those pages see my images and like them, they will feature them on their pages. Not only does it increase my audience, but it also shows that my work is current and unique. This is really cool!
There are a few senior portrait pages that you should be following for inspiration and helpful tips, all of which I have been featured on. This includes:
- Senior Inspire
- The Twelfth Year
- Senior Year Magazine
- Pose Patch
- The Senior Best
- Senior Muse
- The Savvy Seniors
- Senior Artistry
- The Senior Playbook
- Inspiring Teens Magazine
- The Vibrant Senior
- The Look Seniors & Teens
All of these pages have liked and shared my work. Senior photographers can be featured in Instagram stories or on Instagram feeds. Since stories are temporary, a place on their feed holds more weight.
Published Senior Photographer
In order to be published as a senior photographer, I submit a photo, session, or blog post to a magazine. The publication may require a submission fee. I work hard to make sure that my work stands out from the rest. As a result, I have been published in the following:
I was also recognized as one of the Top 50 Up & Coming Senior Photographers of 2019 by Twelfth Year. Being published means that other photographers and professionals in the industry have viewed and judged my work. Above all, hiring a photographer who has been featured and published means that you have picked a professional.
