Hi Franz Roth,
At least three Picture Calls coming to you today, so I’ll start with the hardest.You may remember I forewarned you in my last Newsletter about pictures that would be needed in the future for America’s leading spirituality and health magazine. Here’s that call — it’s for the front cover of the magazine. Magazine front covers are just about the top of the tree in professional photography and we’re honored to be asked to submit images.Each issue of the magazine has a cover image of a single person. They want that person to look wise and mature, but not specifically old. Anything between 30 and 70 is good. The subject needs to convey a feeling of confidence, inner peace, contentment etcetera, and also give the impression of health.They also need to look natural. The magazine tells us that the problem they have with other stock agencies / picture libraries is that the models look too much like models — they’re too beautiful!They need people interesting enough to jump off the newsstand, but not so perfect that they look like they are selling something. So they came to fotoLibra. I hope that’s flattering!Images need to be portrait (vertical) and have the subject slightly on the right of the frame and with room at the top for the nameplate.They do not want studio shots, and outdoors usually works best for them.A mix of races and skin tones is great, but at the same time their clothing and style needs to look American.Picture quality needs to be flawless, which is why we’re asking for such large pixel dimensions. You will need high-end equipment for images to be considered for this Call. Submissions will be filtered by size.
Minimum pixel dimensions: 5025 x 3500
Portrait only; color
First deadline: Monday February 23rd 2009; 12:00 GMT
Images will be wanted throughout the year
Hi Franz Roth,
It seems to be covers day today.This is for a book cover, smaller than a magazine cover so not quite so many pixels required as in the previous Picture Call.It's quite an open brief. They want a dynamic cover image with green as the predominant colour; a photograph showing a sporting image with a sense of movement. It can be rock climbing, paragliding or anything you like. Action, movement, achievement.
Minimum pixel dimensions: 4280 x 3000
Portrait only; colour
Deadline: Tuesday February 10th 2009; 12:00 GMT
