Being Featured with Lexi Vornberg || January 2015

being featured 2015 promo

With so many amazing opportunities out there, you don’t have to be a fashion or commercial photographer to have your work published and/or featured. Being Featured is a workshop that will take you through the steps that will not only make your session stand out to a blog or magazine, but also help you learn what each one is specifically looking for. From finding the right blog/magazine that matches your style to capturing a session that screams feature to submitting that session the correct way to everything else in between.

Lexi Vornberg is the editor in chief, founder, and creative director behind Lemonade and Lenses, a photographer’s magazine and blog, and Belle Lumiere, a high end print magazine and film exclusive blog. After looking through thousands of submissions and seeing almost everything done wrong, she is here to teach you how to get the publisher’s attention, in a good way, and how to submit a session correctly. She will go over how to submit to a blog, how to find a blog that showcases styles similar to yours, how to shoot a session specifically for submitting, how to edit that session, and how to submit the right way the first time. Each active seat will be able to submit two sessions to be critiqued as if Lexi was looking at them as real submissions to her blogs/magazine.



“The getting published course was FUN and educational. While I was honored beyond words to provide the cover image for the June 2013 L&L magazine I am VERY new to the whole submission process and was looking for some guidance and insight…. and FEEDBACK. When you submit and are overlooked, publishers aren’t going to tell you why. This is an opportunity to get the why, so the next submission snags one of those coveted spots.” – Tracy Hopkins

“‘Being Featured’ blew my socks off! Lexi shared very valuable information on how to submit for publication and gave priceless critiques on sessions we submitted to her. It was well worth the investment and I can’t wait to see where I can go from here! Thank you Lexi for a fabulous class!” – Morgan Coombs

“I now know there are so many details [when it comes to] creating a successful submission that I think most people would have no idea about. I certainly didn’t. Totally blown away [by] the info Lexi gives you. Not only ‘what to do’ but ‘what NOT to do.’ This class was worth every penny. All the information and instruction that Lexi gives is beyond eye opening and helpful, but also being able to ask her questions directly and seeing questions that others ask and that Lexi so candidly answers was amazing!!” – Dena Rooney
