    Here is a stock photo that was used as a full page in a magazine to go along with an article that was already written. The photo request was just for some cooking equipment from the 1700’s. When I showed up at the Polk Memorial in Pineville, N.C. it turned out that they were the group that the article was about. Dumb luck being at the right spot to take the right pictures.

    There was a cooking class going on to teach others how to cook using Pioneer methods. Here a chicken is cooked at the fire place. They keep twisting the string to make the chickens turn around and around. It took them about 1 ½ hours to cook the bird.

    The cooked what they called a slow pudding in the big metal pot, then hung the pudding on a fence to cool down.

    The image of the table was used by two different magazines. They were located in different parts of the country and were published over a year apart. Remember they are just renting the photo, you can rent it again. Just make sure that the publisher knows that you are doing it.

    I know that these were taken before I owned a m 4/3 camera, but I thought someone might interested in just what kind of pictures get published. This one set paid for my Nikon D200 and I had only just received the camera and was testing it out. These could have been done just as well with my G3 and 20mm lens. In fact they would have been better, because the newer sensor of the G3 is really that much better than the D200. How did I know that they needed these? I found one magazine from the Photographers Market handbook and the other off a magazine rack. I then contacted the photo editor or art director and requested a photoguidelines. You might not get rich doing this, but if you keep trying you might pay for a new lens or body.
