I don't think it's anything to do with you. UK mags are barely surviving so they're only buying stuff from picture agents and the select few photographers they choose to work with. They're even re-publishing old picture sets from yesteryear. The internet has just about killed print media.

I agree,at least i can get work in Portugal and the US can't complain,but it would be nice to get some more non adult work too.

If you can't get published then the situation is indeed critical. Well done wishing you greater success even if it is abroad.

Congratulations on getting published, it's a shame UK Mags can't see the potential of shooting people like ourselves. I know UK Mags are struggling but surely putting up repeats is not the way to attract fresh readers!
Fresh readers want fresh material

Nice one.

I seriously think networking on these sites would help more though (and not just tweeting about having chicken curry for dinner ), perhaps even a Facebook page or blog could help.


Somebody had a dig of sorts at Twitter this morning on another site and my reply to that was as follows (and could apply to any social networking site):

For most people in this industry the aim isn't to get work directly as such, it's more to keep your name in the public eye and let people know you're still around.

Take Coca Cola for instance, arguably the biggest soft drinks manufacturer in the world. Their product sells well and everyone knows it but they still have a monstrous marketing budget to keep their product at the forefront - Twitter can work pretty much the same way (albeit on a smaller scale).

When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

I agree about getting yourself out there,i had aTwitter acount and i contacted lots of people but i did not find it helpful,and with facebook you end up getting pervs and trolls ive tried that before ,but i do think the UK market is a little backwards towards diversity lol.
