HOW TO WRITE A GUEST POST
Are you a professional photographer who uses a mirrorless system for work either in tandem with another system (DSLR, medium format, etc.) or on its own? If so, why not consider sending us a guest post as a way of sharing your story with the photography world!
If you still use your old system, your article could be about the role your mirrorless camera plays in your work. Or, if you’ve dropped your old system completely in favour of a mirrorless system, you could write about the pros and cons of using these kinds of cameras for work, if and how your photographic style has changed, and what you’d like to see from your chosen system in the future. These are just a couple of ideas to get you started, but you can feel free to run with the theme!
Guidelines for Guest Posters:
1. You should be a professional photographer who has been seriously using a mirrorless camera on the job for at least a month. (Note: we also accept posts from advanced amateurs if the topic is unique or informative. Please email us to pitch your idea.)
2. All content must be original and of your own creation. This regards text and images. Previously-published content will not be accepted with the exception of articles written in other languages that have been translated. Once the article has been published on MirrorLessons, it may not be re-published elsewhere. This is for your benefit as much as ours, as duplicate content is frowned upon by Google.
3. A guest post should be at least 1000 words and no more than 3000. We ask that you include 5-10 images to illustrate the concepts in your post.
4. Please proof read for spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistakes before you submit the post.
5. The post must be in-depth, informative and personal. It should clearly demonstrate why you chose your mirrorless camera, and the various advantages and disadvantages of using your chosen system. Try to include a few practical examples of how your mirrorless camera has helped you on the job.
6. All images must be submitted in JPG format (1024px length-wise) and include the watermark of the author/photographer.
7. Submit your article in a Microsoft Word or plain-text document. Indicate exactly where you’d like your images to appear within the article using the file names of the images.
8. You may include a maximum of two hyperlinks back to your photography website/blog within the post. We will also happy to share your social profiles including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and Pinterest at the end of the post. Advertising of products or services is not permitted.
The MirrorLessons team reserves the right to:
1. Remove inappropriate content and modify guest posts if necessary.
2. Delete a guest post if it is found to break any of the above-mentioned guidelines.
3. Add, remove or modify hyperlinks to external websites.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your article or proposal and if we think it is suitable, we’ll get back to you as soon as possible!
