We are looking for detailed tutorials about photography!
Our goal with Belovely You is to inspire and equip photographers to take amazing images of their own.
If you have a certain method or trick for taking stunning images, we would love for you to share it with us!
Tutorials can be about anything related to taking the images or post-production, such as working with clients, editing, shooting, behind-the-scenes information, lighting, or any other tip that people take better images and relate to the session you want featured.
Because our mission is to help photographers take better photos, the tip you share will be considered when determining if we’ll publish the tutorial or not.
But the more in depth the tutorial, the more likely it is that we will feature it.
And just like Belovely features, if your tutorial is chosen, you will get a banner to display on your website that identifies you as a Belovely You featured photographer.
Here’s What We Need!
Along with your tutorial, you may submit images that illustrate a particular method or setup to help get your ideas across. It can be anything from a photo of your lighting setup to a diagram, etc. – anything that you think will be beneficial for someone reading your tutorial and trying to visualize your method.
You may also submit images that display the final product – i.e., the result. However, we may also link out to other fantastic examples that already exist on our site as well if we feel it adds value to your tutorial.
Please also note that any article you submit to us needs to be original, unique content and not published elsewhere. It may be similar to a post submitted or published elsewhere, but it may not be word-for-word as another article published elsewhere, as that is damaging to SEO.
Photo Size Requirements
- One full resolution image (1800 pixels or greater) to be displayed on the front page (No logo allowed on this image). This may be a ‘results’ image or it can be an instructional image.
- Up to 10 images 560px on the long side (no collages). Less than 200kb per photo. May contain a logo based on logo requirements below.
- The full resolution image must also be sent as a normal image (560px) so it can also be included in the post.
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to properly size your photos:
We also need…
- A list of the gear you used for this shoot
- A link to your website, geographic location, email, Google+ profile link, and a link to your Facebook Page
We prefer images without a logo, but will consider images with logos placed in the bottom right-hand corner of the images, according to the diagrams below:
The full resolution image may not contain any logo or your submission will be denied.
Images MUST be formatted exactly as stated, or they will be denied.
Your tutorial can win a Beloveliest Award Too!
Any featured tutorials may be awarded a Beloveliest Award, giving you an exclusive Beloveliest Award to place on your website and giving your featured tutorial extra exposure by being included in the front-page slide show.
We give the Beloveliest Award to our most popular posts and tutorials. We determine this by the number of Facebook Likes, Pinterest Shares, and Google+ Shares that are received soon after the images are featured on our site. We also may award the Beloveliest Award to something that really takes our breath away or is especially thorough and informative at our discretion.
