Making the Shoot (MTS) is an international photography competition hosted by The Lab Magazine (a recent stated “Site of the Day”) and Photoculture, created “to offer life-changing opportunities for photographers worldwide, find and promote emerging talent, and cultivate a new standard in juried competitions.”
Making the Shoot describes the competition. “Taking the step from being a photographer to a ‘working’ photographer can be a big leap, and as artists ourselves, we’ve been there. What is ultimately needed to move a career forward—access to a great subject, working with experienced hair/make-up/wardrobe, top tier production tools, and the ability to have your work published and seen in a great platform—can seem out of reach for many. We can amend that.”
Making the Shoot will be offering several prizes from their sponsors, but it’s also a great opportunity for the selected photographer, who will be flown to Los Angeles in January 2012 for a fully-financed celebrity photo shoot to be published in The Lab Magazine’s issue No. 5, on stands worldwide in March 2012.
An impressive lineup of professional judges has been assembled to critique submissions.
