Each year, The Freelance Photographer’s Market Handbook helps more and more photographers to sell their work. It is a regular purchase for all serious freelance and aspiring freelance photographers, keeping them up to date with changes in the marketplace and showing them where they can sell their pictures. It has been called the “photographers’ bible” by one reviewer.

Published this year on the 1st November, The Freelance Photographer’s Market Handbook 2016 will include information on hundreds of markets looking for pictures. There are detailed listings on the type of pictures – and articles – required by specialist, trade and consumer magazines. As well as the subject matter required by each publication, each entry details formats required, fees paid – and exactly where to send your pictures and to whom they should be addressed.

As well as magazines, the Handbook includes other markets for pictures including books, greetings cards, postcards, calendars and posters. Again, each listing sets out to show… What They Want, What They Pay, and Where to Send Your Pictures.

National newspapers are also listed, with the picture editor of each paper as well as picture desk phone numbers and contacts.

There is also an extensive agency section giving detailed information on each library including subjects required, markets supplied, and terms of business.

In addition, the Handbook contains invaluable articles on approaching markets as well as many hints and tips to help the freelance and aspiring freelance photographer to sell their work.

The 2015 Handbook is thoroughly revised throughout, to reflect current market needs. In addition to the new listings, previous entries have been scrupulously checked and updated, right up to the day the Handbook went to press.

The Handbook is available from good bookshops, price £14.95, or direct from the Bureau of Freelance Photographers, PO Box 474, Hatfield AL10 1FY, price £16.95 including P&P. 

An invaluable guide for the enthusiastic amateur photographer as well as the semi- and full-time pro

looking for more markets to sell their pictures.
