Photographers Style Guide

Thank you for your interest in helping us grow. If you wish to shoot for Cotton On MCR, please see the below style guide for more information.

Images of exhibitions / art galleries:

  • We ask for 6 – 9 images per exhibition / gallery
  • Must be high-quality and high resolution images (min 1500x1500px). We do not publish images with reflections, bad lighting etc
  • Images should be either emailed or WeTransferred to us
  • Images should be taken as early as possible to the exhibition launch date, giving us plenty of promotion time before the exhibition ends
  • We cover all artists and galleries that are based within the Greater Manchester region or, artists outside of that region that have an exhibition within Greater Manchester.
  • If at an exhibition, please also include a high quality image of the blurb if applicable to be used for information
  • Please make notes of the names of individual pieces. Individual artwork names should be exactly as the Artist has written them.
  • We will add a short paragraph to introduce you as a guest photographer. e.g. Full Name, Instagram and/or website link, a brief introduction to yourself i.e your job / your interest in arts / your studies etc
  • We require a mix of photographs that cover the overall exhibition / space/gallery, as well as individual artwork shots and close-up detailed images

If you wish to take photographs of reviews and/or something different not stated above, please do get in touch via out contact page.
