let me begin my questions by stating I am coming from a stylist p-o-v
For example, if I am using some amazing clothes but in the end a lot of the photos get cropped so that some of the best part of the clothing is hidden, would it be wise to set the tears aside, and instead use prints of the shots from the shoot that best show off my work(even if it is not what appears in the magazine)?
This would also mean requesting some extra photos & permission from the photographer directly. Is this just taboo? I feel that some of the shots a photographer chooses is based solely on composition, and my heart sinks when I see what is chosen for submission and my favorite pieces can hardly be seen.
