The Romanticist Editorial Method Part 3 - Publication List


If there is one thing I did right this first year in business is creating a PROCESS to design my photoshoots. True, I was offering photoshoot design and styling for my clients so it comes with the job to have a process and ways to communicate the vision.

As the biz grows I have less time to take on photoshoots and collaborations (insert super sad face here) and I already miss this part of the job so much.

I wish I could say 'yes' to every this is my way to participate (at least a little) on every beautiful project that comes my way! All my little tricks, the best places to get props and a few styling tips to help you (and your team) create a photoshoot that you are super happy with.

It turned out it was a LOT of info so I am breaking into 5 free resources:

1. The checklist - all the steps + tips

2. Design templates - my photoshoot design template, moodboard, everything ready for you to just plug your ideas

3. A list of publications to help you get inspired or decide where to submit your work

4. All my resources - and I am not just talking about my shop ... I am listing books, dishes, tabletop items, ribbons, ring boxes, beauty, backdrops, etc

5. A few styling tips and you will be ready to put all this planning into action. 

Ok so this is going to sound a little odd...when I start a new project I don't start with moodboards, I actually print this checklist (get it HERE) and kick off my project with a simple timeline on my calendar (just put down some milestones, shoot days, etc to see how much time you actually have to work with).

*if you dont know anything about me - I am sort of a 'left-brain' creative and almost everything is calculated and planned to the seconds* Don't worry - all the other steps are a lot more fun and less details

This month we will have a little Q&A to chat publication - always on Instagram or FB so make sure you follow along. 

Now for that handy list...


Here is what is inside...
