Guest Post Submissions

We would like to invite you to submit Feature Articles and Photos on our Blog:

L&L Photography is excited to announce we will be featuring Guest Authors and Photographers to post their materials on our blog. This is an excellent way to get additional traffic to your blog page, web page, and a means for increasing exposure for you and your business.  Please make your submissions relevant to the content of our blog.  We are a Photo-Blog. Submissions for your Feature Article should be enlightening, entertaining, and relevant to photography: i.e., travel, abstract, environmental and natural resources including: wildlife, flowers, landscapes, macro; general photography, abstract, as well as urban environments, and any other interesting adventure or topic that one might find themselves where photography is a focus.

How to Proceed:

You can begin by taking a look at our blog for articles we have posted and become familiar with the type of articles we have published. Please note that a place is not an idea, nor is a type of camera interesting. We are looking for compelling stories where photography is the main focus; we encourage the writer to seek a specific angle, or photographic tip(s), news related topics, adventures, or travels etc., that makes the topic/subject innovative, and interesting to a wide audience of readers. Our readers include the following genres: travel photographers, travel journalists, photo-journalists, professional and amateur photographers, writers, poets teachers, technical science professionals, environmental and wildlife enthusiasts, bird watchers, Rosarians, teachers, scientists, and botanists to name but a few. We are looking for an article that is fresh, relevant, and exciting in the world of photography.

We are also seeking images from those interested in posting to our Photo and Flower of the Day posts. Each week we will select one submittal. Photographs for inclusion should be relevant to our blog. Please double-check our blog for examples of images, genres, and the format for which the photos will be published. Feel free to submit to both categories.

The Feature Article and all Photographs must be appropriate for viewers of all ages, therefore your submittable work should be considered family friendly.  We reserve the right to reject your materials if we consider they are poorly written or contain numerous  errors, and/or excessive profanity, or sexual references. Both Feature Articles and Photo/Flower of the day entries will also be submitted or linked to Linkedin, Google+, Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter, which will get your name out to various other social media sites, meaning more exposure for you and your business!
