Episode 32 Libby Peterson of Rangefinder Magazine

Photo © Keith Barraclough

Libby Peterson is Rangfinder Magazine’s feature editor, I was fortunate enough to have her sit in on a skype call to get to know her and learn about what it means to be an editor for one of the biggest Portrait & Wedding Photography magazine. If you don’t know about Rangefinder Magazine, they offer the latest news and articles on tips, and advice that can help you progress in your photography and grow your business, and the magazine is completely free. It was really interesting to get some insight on what happens behind the scenes of Rangefinder. Every year the magazine celebrates the community of wedding photographers by selecting 30 up and coming photographers to showcase their work in their year end issue known as the 30 Rising Stars. We talked about the long and difficult process in selecting those photographers and Libby also gives us some tips on how to reach out to editors to get your work published.
