Inside Out photography by Jacqui Turk

Dear Photographers,

I am super excited to share this interview with beautiful photographer Jacqui Turk and what she has achieved with her unique eye, vision and photography.

Part of my journey has been to share my knowledge and what I have learnt at the ‘coal face’ and pass on my experience (good and bad)  to others so they can go carve out their dream in their own way.

I had the honour of meeting Jacqui Turk at Get Published in 2014 and she is one of many photographers who ran with the knowledge shared on the day and made it their own. I love what Jacqui has achieved creatively and I know what a thrill it is to be published in some of Australia’s best magazines and she is going to share her story of turning her dream into reality this December at our new edition of Get Published!

Over to Jacqui….

How long had you been doing photography prior to attending the Get Published workshop?

I’d studied an Associate Diploma in Photography after I had graduated high school in the 90’s after that life and work took me in a different direction, still in photo studio’s but on the styling side with a magazine. It had probably been about 18 months before the workshop that I picked up a camera again.

When your first article was published after the workshop how did you feel when you saw your first pages?

I was absolutely thrilled! I couldn’t really believe it.  There is definitely something special about seeing your images in print.

Did you have a favourite magazine you loved and dreamed of being published in? Have you achieved that?

I love all magazines! Especially the interior ones. I dreamt of having a Home published in Inside Out and have achieved that.

We are so excited to have you speak this year and share with the audience your experience and how you took the material and made it yours but what was one of the key pieces of information you learned that allowed you to achieve what you have in such a short time?

The one key piece of information that you shared, Carla, and even having come from a magazine background it was so obvious but I didn’t see it, is to know the magazine you are pitching to. Know the sections, know the style, know what kind of content they publish, know what angles they love. This is can be a big advantage to pitching the right story to the right magazine and therefore gives you better chance at getting published. The Gourmet Traveler waiter is the example you gave us Carla! This piece of info is still with me everyday on almost every shoot.

Anything else you would like to share about your journey?

I am still pinching myself! It has been such an amazing journey and I feel so privileged to work and collaborate with so many wonderful and talented people.  Getting together and collaborating with other creatives has taught me the most. The perfect chance to experiment and try new things. It’s the greatest preparation for your next job!
