My name is Shannon and I am developing Fierce Magazine. Fierce will be a monthly magazine designed to pay homage to the modeling industry and the people that make it happen.
This magazine will be dedicated to promoting models, photographers, make-up artists, stylists, clothing designers and all of the incredibly talented crafters of aesthetic bliss.
The format will include interviews with each of the artists as well as contact information and a series of portfolio images. All credits will need to be properly provided for each photo that is included in the publication. The format will devote several full spreads to each subject. 2 pages for the lead in, 2 pages for interview and a few photos and several pages for photos / credits.
What I need is models, photographers, make-up artists, stylists and clothing designers that would like to be showcased in the magazine. You do not need to pay to be a part of it, there is no catch, really... I am developing this publication as a test for a larger scale project I am planning for and since I am a slave to all things beautiful, I wanted to make this industry my focus.
1) I need a pool of participants to pull from monthly. I will let you know immediately if you have been selected. While you may not be included in the next month, if you have been selected, you will be added to the schedule and I will let you know when your article will be published.
2) Upon selection, I will ask that you send 15-20 2700 x 3600ppi .jpg images for inclusion. Images must be accompanied by credits for every party involved in each photo; model, photographer, mua, stylist, etc.
3) Once your photography is received, you will complete your interview.
1) This publication will be a piece of artwork in itself so only superb professional quality photos will be in contention to be included.
2) All submissions must be tasteful. I am not opposed to nudity as long as it is elegant and in no way offensive.
3) All photos must include proper credits for your inclusions. No credits, no publish.
As I mention, this is a pet project I have decided to undertake. I am a female business owner with a mad love for fashion and beautiful things. I am combining all of what I love in this venture and I welcome you all to be a part of it.
You can reference this list to see samples of the quality of photography required to be published. http://www.modelmayhem.com/list/344654

My real bread and butter is here: http://www.thekeenmachine.com, if you care
This is not "a paying gig," as it is meant purely to promote and expose each of the featured models, photographers, MUA's etc that are selected to be featured.
There is no money going into this project nor money being made on it. There is no advertising, it is not a "job." It is a publication that will offer "credit where credit is due" insight into players in the industry. It will essentially feature a 6-page "article" about each feature. There is no time involved on the featured guests part aside from answering an interview questionnaire and spending 10-15 minutes on the phone with me to go over them. The magazine will not be shooting any photography, each feature will supply their own photography to the magazine with proper credits.
From that point I put together the layout with the interview and the photography that is provided (by the featured guest) then it will be published in a digital format with several other featured guests. The featured guests contact information will be provided in their spreads should they elect, or, I will provide an email address @fiercepublications.com which will then be forwarded if needed.
