Photography Guidelines

  • Photos must have been taken inside the borders of the Adirondack Park.
  • Slides are no longer accepted.

DIGITAL PHOTO GUIDELINES:

  • We can accept Photoshop, tiff, jpeg, or raw files on CD sent to PO Box 410, Jay, NY 12941 or shared via Dropbox.com to art director Kelly Hofschneider at khofschneider@adirondacklife.com.
  • Digital photos must be shot at high resolution. (for example: a 1/4 page photo must be 800 pixels by 1000 pixels). Do NOT enlarge files from the original file size.
  • Digital images for cover consideration must be at least 3400 x 2600 pixels in dimension.
  • Please do NOT crop, sharpen or heavily retouch images before sending them. Images should be true to life (no power lines or other elements removed).
  • Please include a list of locations for each image.

NEEDED FOR EVERY ISSUE:

  • Cover
  • Seasonal events for the In & Out calendar of events section

*Please note that we work on issues 3 to 4 months in advance of the current season. If you would like to receive updates on current editorial needs, send your email address to art director Kelly Hofschneider at khofschneider@adirondacklife.com.

COVERS: We are looking for beautiful and unusual Adirondack landscapes—generally without people, except for the summer Annual Guide issue. Digital photos should be at least 3400 x 2600 pixels. Please keep in mind that we need some open space (or solid color) at the top of the image for the logo and cover lines.

CALENDAR OF EVENTS: Every issue has two or more images of events occurring during that two-month publication period. Outdoor events, festivals, indoor events, concerts, seasonal related images, people recreating, etc. are all considered for this page.

PHOTO FEATURE OR ESSAY: Every issue has a seasonal photo feature or essay. These images should represent the season at hand in the Adirondacks. They are usually four-color images, generally scenics. However, people and places or black-and-white seasonal images are also considered. We encourage interesting and obscure places and scenes, off the beaten path, as well as the classic shots.
