Any LA based publications in need of models?
Hi,


Does anyone know of any LA based publications in need of model in exchange for tearsheet? Iíve the models and am organizing a team of stylists. I just need a list of LA based publications who I can contact to see if they are willing to shoot these girls for their magazines.


Thanks,


Joe

Are you a photographer?


The reason I ask is that small local mags rarely have a staff photographer ... they tend to comission a freelancer. The photographer's that I work with usually make the contact with the magazines directly , show them their portfolios and arrange to either submit stories for consideration or, better yet, submit story ideas and get commisioned to do a specific story for them.

Then the photographer chooses the models and has his own stylist on his team .... so that's why I asked since the mag doesn't usually get involved with all of that. Oh, and the photog and the mag usually want agency repped models to insure that they are pros and have the look needed. Models are fairly easy to get ... again the photog needs to approach the agency, show his porfolio, and advise them that he's been commssioned by such and such magazine and the agency usually has new models still in developement that can also use the tears that he may choose from ... so again, it's a win, win. Nobody gets paid ... but everybody gets tears and/or credits in the magazine.

If you are a photographer, but you don't already have a lot of tears yet, start with the small local mags . .... you know, the little advertising mags about each community or city, like Malibu, Downtown, Hollywood or Long Beach. Propose stories where you can pull wardrobe from thier advertisers .... it's a win-win for everyone ... and the magazines love it because it pleases their advertisers.

To find these publishers, just pick up these mags (they are free, and they are usually found in restaurants, small businesses and sometimes in racks outside of stores) and check inside .... the publisher's info will be there, somewhere, usually near the front.

Thanks Bette. I’m a photographer and stylist. However, this project isn’t for my book. I recently joined a model agency and want to help the girls developed more tears for their book. We have a team of photographer, MUA, stylist, etc. on hand. You just reminded me… I have seen some restaurants in sunset have local fashion mags. I’ll need to revisit them. This is new to me as I’ve never contacted the magazines directly.

Even if they are not fashion mags ... a lot of them do lifestyle stuff ... or like fashion editorials as a bonus in their local mags, anyway. So ... approach them all ... you never know.

They will still want to talk to whoever is shooting ... and see their work up front. So if that is you ... be sure to offer to come in to show your book and to meet with them to determine what sort of editorials they might want.

If you ar not shooting the editorials yourself, you will need to connect with the photographers directly. You can call the mags and can ask them who shoots for them and ask if you can get contact info. Then reach out to their photogs and ask if you may send them info on the models who need tears to see if they can use any of your girls for their editorials. (Hint: If the mags don't offer photog contact info or names, just look for photo credits right in the magazines ... you should be able to find all of those photogs because they probably all have web sites.)

I just merged your question into this thread ... which is all about how you can get editorials into magazines .... for photogs, not models ... but the photog pics the models anyway, so it's basically the same topic. There's a link in one of the first posts ... to a site that lists mastheads of magazines ... very helpful information (if the link still works).

See also this related thread, about how to produce an editorial: http://forums.thefashionspot.com/f90...nes-77142.html

Thanks again Bette. Most likely the agency director will be the photog. We definitely have the tools and expertise to produce editorial work. I just don’t know if those mags will use outside photogs. I guess I’ll find out. We also have books ready to show.

Welcome to the Fashion Spot!


No one has answered, so I thought I'd at least respond, even thought I can't really help you ... I only know about magazines that are local to me.


I'm assuming you are talking about real, printed magazines (not e-zines) ... so how you do that is already in this thread. Who to submit to ... that requires research on your part ... check their websites because they usually will state if they take submissions. If it's a local magazine without a web site, call them and ask and if they do take them, ask for their submission guidelines.

This may be of use to some people here. I know from having spoken to one of the editorial staff that NO TOFU magazine (www.notofu.com) accept fashion submissions for print and they are pretty good about considering all submissions (though they have to be high quality) - I saw the magazine distributed in a number of stores around LA and it's a gorgeous glossy publication so this may be of use to some.

They even mention it on their website: notofu.com/contact, and the submission email is submissions@notofu.com
