Ever wondered what it takes to get a shot into National Geographic? Well wonder no more!

The good folks over at PhotoShelter did an interview with NatGeo Senior Photo Editor Elizabeth, where she … “gives us a behind-the-scenes look at how the team at National Geographic magazine selects photos from thousands of submissions and how they intimately work with photographers to bring a story from inception to completion.”

The video interview is a full hour of excellent advice, tips, industry secrets and general shooting guidelines that would be helpful to any photographer!

Some of the tips Elizabeth touches on:

• The reason keywording is so important
• How to know who to send your photos to at your prospective client
• What you need to do to have your photos tell a story … without words
• And most importantly: how to get your foot in the door!

Enjoy the video and make sure you head over to PhotoShelter and check out their services for photographers. We not only say they are great, we are PhotoShelter customers and love what they do!
