Thank you for taking an interest in Snap Matter Magazine. If you are wondering if you can appear in one of our issues, you can indeed. Snap Matter is a submission based remote published magazine. Our magazine wouldn't exist if it weren't for the many talented artists out there trying to promote themselves through magazines like Snap Matter Shout Outs and it's Special Editions. Ok enough with the pleasantries, let's get you started!

MODELS STYLE: We are currently looking for Glamour, Fashion, Alternative, Pinup, Artistic, and Casual Sexy images. No nudity, but implied nudity is acceptable. We are a Model Photography Networking magazine. We want to provide our readers with the hottest, experienced, and up and coming models in the world. Magazine themes are open by default. Every year we will run special promotions announcing a Special Edition (Swimsuit Edition, Holiday Edition, etc.), but other than that you're safe submitting your own concepts, styles and looks throughout the year. Please DO NOT send images with Cover Stipulations. We can not gaurantee you a cover. The highest quality models, and photo imagery, will dictate what images go in the current issue, what does not, and what image goes on the cover. Nobody but the publisher knows who will be on the cover until the day the issue is released. If you browse through all our covers, you will see that many different models and photographers from around the world have graced the cover of our magazines. If you're work is great, you have a fair chance of making a cover, not to mention getting your set into the magazine.

HINTS TO GETTING PUBLISHED: Images should be sharp and properly exposed. Ultimately we would like two strong verticals and a (1) very strong horizontal to give each model four pages. Two strong horizontals is acceptable as well. Just send a healthy combination of both for us to choose from. With that being said, if you could send each model as a set, that would be ideal.

Set Combinations:
1 Very Strong Horizontal (two pages)
2 Strong Verticals (two pages)
1 Very Strong Horizontal + 2 Strong Verticals (four pages)
2 Strong Horizontals (four pages)

Symmetry! Please keep Symmetry in mind when posing, and submitting poses. Please DO NOT submit a set where you/or your subject is facing the same direction in every photo. It looks like crap in print.

SUBMISSION FORM LETTERS: The fastest way to be ruled out of consideration is to add us to a form letter when submitting your images to multiple magazines/publications at once. While sometimes unavoidable, we don't want to publish images that are going to be published by numerous other magazines. So those submissions are deleted upon arrival.

COVER CONSIDERATION: As far as what we look for... 3/4 body shots typically get top consideration, but not always the cover. If you go look at our home page and look at how all our covers are composed, you will get a good idea of what we look for. As for style, we are looking for images that are sharp, well lit, easy on the post processing, and the subject has to have a great natural pose and facial expression. Subject's eyes should be clearly visible (some exceptions, depending on pose, but if subject is facing the camera, we want to see catchlights). Good luck!

Attention Female Models (or Togs who have photographed them): To be considered for inclusion into Snap Matter Magazines, please send us AT LEAST three images that include the following:
Head and Torso
Full Length

Please only send low resolution images that are under 1MB each (No compressed files please -- I.e. zip, sitx, rar, etc…). Please send sets organized by model/photographer. Another words, for example, please refrain from sending us a single message with 18 attachments shot by 12 different photographers. Along with your images, please send a brief outline/bio (less than 100 words) about yourself and your aspirations. Your outline/bio will help your chances of getting into print. Please send current images. If we contact you for inclusion into the magazine, you can count on the following to occur.

1) We will ask to use the image(s) you submitted for inclusion online and in print. We may also ask to use images that appear in your online portfolio.
2) We will send you a request for high resolution images we chose from your low resolution submission. We will include a specific image delivery protocol that you must follow in order for us to schedule you for publication.

Now that you know what to do, get your low resolution image set prepared and send it to:

A networking page for models, photographers, artists, and designers!
