Why Camerapixo magazine does not pay photographers to publish their photos?

Camerapixo is not a regular publisher with goal to publish and sell as many copies of the magazine as possible. Our mission is different; it is to promote photographers no matter the level of their knowledge. The answer is simple, we do all the advertising/marketing work by publishing your photos and making sure your photographer profile on our website is exposed to as many viewers as possible. Editors of other magazines and agencies are always on the look out for creative published photos (some are following us). Being published gives you endless possibilities, so let Camerapixo work for you and let us show your photography to the world.

Many photographers ask us why we do not pay for publishing their photos, and we completely understand your concern. We do not pay for publishing your photos because we offer much more in return.

Do you want more than just publishing your photos?
Are you goal oriented to get awards for your photos?

If your answer to above questions is YES, then you are in the right place.

  • Being Published Matters: With today's technology we must realize that being photographer is very easy, however to get your photos noticed and to build a profile for yourself as a photographer, you must take all the necessary steps to advertise and promote yourself. You can do it on many social platforms where many photographers are doing just the same. It means you can easily get lost between all the photos that are posted in the social networks. Therefore being published is one of the most important steps to take if you want to take your photography any further. 
     
  • Photography Awards: There are countless photo competitions to be found on the internet, and this is a really easy way to both get noticed for your photography, and potentially win prizes and awards. However it takes a budget and it's never guaranteed you will win a contest. With Camerapixo you do not have to pay to be awarded, in each magazine we award the best photos, what adds a great value to your portfolio.
     
  • Photography Profile and Community: It's a great place to get noticed and get a support of other photographers, also there are plenty of workshops of which you can take advantage, Camerapixo community will provide this for you.
