Interested in having your photography featured on INW People? Fill out the form below to get started.
Have you taken a portrait of someone from the Inland Northwest you’d like to submit? Submit it below along with a quote from that person. Here are a few tips.
Keep in mind two things – context and truth.
Context – The visible background in the photo helps the viewer to engage and relate to the person being featured. Go for unstaged scenarios (a wall, street, doorway, etc.).
Truth – Capture authentic emotion and posture. Help the person relax and be themselves without posing them. Ask them questions that encourage them to be specific and dig below the the surface answers we all tend to provide.
Submit color photos with minor editing done. Similarly, quotes should mostly be unedited. Use ellipsis or brackets when necessary. Don’t forget to include the first name of the person photographed and where in the Inland Northwest they live!
