Top 13 Ways to Piss Off a Photo Editor

Check out a fantastic post on the Photo Shelter blog about mistakes made when working with Photo Editors. You’ll read this and think most of it is commen sense, but you’d be surprised how many people are that unprofessional and.. well.. dumb.

Here are a few of my favorites:

“Asking me to call photo editors of OTHER magazines on your behalf, to recommend that they meet with you.” – Roberto De Luna, Photo Editor, Time Out NY

“Change your phone number without telling me – or move or go on vacation or on a out-of-town assignment without notification. I need to know where you are.” – Phaedra Singelis, Supervising Producer – Multimedia,

“Using Facebook for professional email correspondence (additionally, spamming someone multiple times to join your Fan Page.)” – Ryan Schick, Editor, Redux Pictures

“Don’t tell me how hard you worked… that’s what’s expected of you.” – Nate Gordon, Picture Editor, Sports Illustrated
