All the Photographer Promos in One Week to Travel+Leisure – Part 2
Continuing our previous post, we’re taking a look at all of the good promos that Travel+Leisure photo editor Whitney Lawson received in a week. It’s a great way to see the diversity of design and content (and skill and talent) that you need to contend with to get on the radar of a major magazine. So without further ado, here’s part deux.

This was a fun post. At least all those promo stuff shows that there’s a lot of talent out there. also gives you a bit of insight into that photo eds might not have all the time you think they might. At the same time I’m a bit surprised that most of the promos were very straight forward – just showing the photos, not trying to be over-clever or over-creative. Good I guess. Cannot resist to also mention, since this is about Travel + Leisure, that our other business, apart from photography, is wine tours, and the very same Travel + Leisure Magazine has named us “World’s Top Wine Tours”: http://www.bkwinetours.com/travelog/bkwine-makes-worlds-top-wine-tours-travel-and-leisure-magazine/ You can imagine how happy that made us!
I really enjoyed these two posts. Thanks for the work that you put into it. Learned a lot and it cemented some thoughts I’ve had lately about some redo’s I need/want to do on my site. In the second part she thankfully dismissed the thought that submitting to these magazines was hopeless unless you had a $1,000 web site. I liked Bob Stefco’s use of light and the sunspots that he left in the images. pam
