Write for HDR Photography Pro!


Yes! We accept bylined “how to” articles, technical guides, and technique opinion pieces for our website and and online photography blog, HDRPhotographyPro.org.

We also publish case studies, technology news news, equipment guides and artist opinion pieces by photographers, academia, PR firms, and other photography professionals and contributors.

1. Contribute bylined “how to” articles for HDRPhotographyPro.org

Bylined articles (800-1,000 words or so of body text) written from an objective viewpoint and conveying valuable how-to content (practical advice for hobbyists and professionals, actionable tips, guides and useful know-how) in a fresh, approachable voice are more likely to meet HDR Photography Pro standards—and therefore more likely to be accepted for publication. See, as examples, the following three article topics:

[EXAMPLE] 13 ‘Old-School’ Photography Tricks That Can Take Your Image From Wimpy to Wow
[EXAMPLE] A Simple Way To Turn Your Photography Hobby Into a High Profit Business Online
[EXAMPLE] 10 Shocking Mistakes Killing Your Portraits Most Young Photographers Make

We will inform you if your article has been accepted for publication; expect to hear from us within a week or so of our having received your email. If we choose not to accept your article, you may or may not hear from us, depending on how crowded our inbox is.

Articles accepted for publication will be edited for clarity and brevity and to conform to the HDR Photography Pro style. We will likely change your title, too, so you might want to suggest some alternatives.

So, if you are interested in joining the many HDR Photography Pro expert contributors of how-to, guides, technical instruction, and case study articles—on a one-time or a regular basis—here are some guidelines:

  • Articles must be original to the author and unpublished elsewhere.
  • Articles must offer readers clear advice, takeaways, and practical how-to tips about a specific photographic or HDR topic or approach to the photographic arts. Bullet points are good. Meandering jibbering text is not.
  • At the beginning of your article, list two or three bullet points summarizing its key takeaways—the lessons learned and the how-tos contained in the article. They will be published along with the article.
  • Include a brief bio of 25 words, including LinkedIn and Twitter contact info, if available, and a recent headshot (make sure your entire head is in the picture).
  • Include relevant images that accompany your piece.
  • Include relevant links in parentheses, next to the words to be linked (i.e., do not embed the links).
  • Submit articles in Word format (no PDF files, please), as email attachments.
  • If you submit an article that mentions businesses or companies in which you have a vested interest, disclose as much to the audience.
  • The author retains copyright, but HDR Photography Pro may reprint your piece, with full attribution, in HDR Photography Pro products, including marketing materials.
  • We do not pay guest contributors for their occasional articles.
  • We do not publish press releases (but do take a look at the “Share Your Research Findings” section, below).

Send byline submissions to our Director of Editorial Services Tanya Mironova at writers (@) arielonlineinc.com. Include HDRPhotographyPro.org byline contribution in your email subject line. Note that our article queue is relatively long, and publication could well take up to three months.

2. Share your research findings with HDRPhotographyPro.org

If you have results from field-related research with gear or techniques and would like to share them with the HDRPhotographyPro audience, send an email to Tanya Mironova : writers (at) arielonlineinc.com. Include Research findings in the subject line..

3. Write an opinion piece for HDRPhotographyPro.org

In contrast to HDRPhotographyPro.org bylined articles, which focus on transmitting how-to lessons and photography know-how, opinion pieces simply share opinions, voice an argument, or discuss current industry news, techniques, styles, trends or current events—much like the op/ed pages of a newspaper.

For all intents and purposes, the administrative guidelines for byline submissions to HDRPhotographyPro apply to contributed opinion pieces as well (but don’t worry about listing the two-or three key takeaways in bullet form, and note that the publication queue isn’t as long).

Submit posts for our Photography Industry Opinions section by emailing Editor Tanya Mironova here: writers (at) arielonlineinc.com including “Opinion piece contribution” in the subject line.

4. Provide 100% original HDR images with a brief artist summary for publication on HDRPhotographyPro.org

If you have created an exceptional image, you can submit it for review along with your artist summary and photo for possible publication. If selected, your image with full attribution will be published on HDRPhotographyPro.org.
