A popular question I get from young people who are interested in photography is what kind of photos do the magazines like? I did say they were young, but at the same time this question could have come from any newbie who's trying to dip their toes into photography. Of course besides the just do it response and take some classes there's not much I can really tell them because at the moment I'm an intermediate photographer working my way up. Yes I've had some of my photos used on websites but anyone who's much further into photography knows there's much more.
