Pedddle Founder Nicki spoke to Caroline, Editor of 91 Magazine, about getting featured in magazines, photography tips and lighting, juggling life as a mother with being an entrepreneur, doing PR for your small business and much more!
91 Magazine has a strong focus on small businesses as opposed to buying mass produced goods. They have a lovely ethos of celebrating all aspects of creative living. This year has forced us all to spend a lot of time at home, so people are really thinking about the space they live in and how it influences their life.
Check out their IG Live chat below, or read onwards for plenty more resources and reading materials…
You don’t necessarily need a fancy set up to get featured in a magazine – 91 Magazine have featured photos taken on a phone before now!
Lighting is EVERYTHING – natural light is always best. Avoid midday brightness though, early morning or later afternoon are good for natural light.
Caroline has a degree in Photographic Arts and runs various Creative Sessions about photography and styling.
You can also check out our tips on photography and lighting from our past IG Live with professional photographer Holly Booth.
Getting Featured in the Magazine
91 Magazine like to focus on creative spaces and creative living rather than specific products, so if you’d like to get featured they’d want to see photos of your home, shop or studio set up and celebrate the feel of that creative space.
Caroline runs a creative session about how to get your small business featured and noticed by the press, which you can register for by clicking here.
