With so many websites, newspapers and magazines out there wanting content, simply getting a picture published is relatively easy. However, this requires you giving your picture away for free. Anyone can do this. I mean anyone.
To get true satisfaction, you need to get paid. It doesn’t matter how much at first but payment is the difference between a chump and someone who’s photograph is actually valued. I’m not talking hundreds of pounds here. Just enough so that you don’t work for free.
Now, onto the getting published part. As I previously said, outlets need content so think what content they need. Have you attended an interesting event? Have you witnessed something of interest? Did you get pictures of those lovely bluebells in bloom when you were in the park? Start at a local level and work up. You are more likely to get a picture used in a local paper first as they love locally-sourced content.
