What images do editors want?
Telling a story
No need for sophisticated equipment,
Just be ready and capture the moment

What else should you aim for?
Close ups and distance
People and scenery
Landmarks? Take the usual view and an unusual angle
The more, the better, you never know what you will need
Think multiple markets and multiple sales

Make sure the images you send match your chosen market, just as the words should do
