Backstage Get Published 2013
All Images by Dee Gerlach
I have been wanting share these images of the behind the scenes from the Get Published Workshop in Sydney last December taken by the fabulous Dee Gerlach since I arrived back in Paris.
Dee is a gorgeous gal, fab photographer with a brilliant eye.
Get Published was held in the ever so groovy ‘The School’ run by super stylist Megan Morton and her husband Giles.
A large photography studio seemed the perfect place for a bunch of wonderful photographers to find out how they could have their images published in books and magazines.
That’s me talking about photographic style and vision and the wonderful group of guys and gals. The morning was devoted to magazines and how they work from every possible angle including my ‘coal face’ experiences working with magazines for 12 years.
Morning tea ready and waiting.
Sharon Misko Creative Director of Inside out joined us again this year and walked the photographers through many topics from the magazines point of view including how to present a portfolio, do’s and don’ts, creating a user friendly website for Art Directors, creating a great story, essential images in a photographic story and how to present to an Art Director.

A huge thanks to the gorgeous group who participated. It was such a fabulous experience to meet so many wonderful people and to have the opportunity to see their work and hear their dreams.

I can’t wait to hear what happens for these photographers this year and I am sure there will be many beautiful stories and books published just like last year.
Athalee Brown and her team did an extraordinary job running the event, heartfelt thanks for all the hard work and delish food.
Many people have asked me whether Get Published will be taught online and it’s in the pipeline for next year so if you would like to get on the workshop list and be the first to be notified you can sign up here.
